School Story:

You may remember me as the crazy dude who wore no shoes at school. I'll never forget my 2 years + at Muir, before I went to school in India for 11th and LACHSA for 12th, before going off to Cal Arts for college.

lived one year in North India, travelled with music around the US, South East Asia (Indonesia/Malaysia), Spain and quite a bit in Mexico.

How often do you get back home to "Dena"?

All the time, we live in Highland Park

Greg & Thom Moore, Roxanne Debucheron, briefly in touch with Josh Bearman, used to be in touch with Rachel Crill, Regina Rizzo and Anna Cambell... Dory Ward... hmmm who else?!?
