Hello again. I am back! Happy Daylights Savings (in the US). The past three months have been a whirlwind and things are finally starting to settle down. So, you may ask, where have I been? Well, I am preparing a long post about this transition on my website but the short story is that I have started working for Yamaha Corporation of America on December 15, 2014 in Buena Park, CA. I am the Percussion Product Manager and I am excited about the new opportunities and team I am working with.

In the coming months, I plan to post 2-3 times a week on the blog. Once summer begins, I will have a better idea about my responsibilities and I hope to resume my videos.

Below are some links I have been collecting. Enjoy and as always, thanks for your continued support and send me your article recommendations.
