What have you been up to since you graduated from Redwood?

Touring musician turn techno junkie. Lived in Italy and England in the late 90s. Returned with my lovely wife. Continued to write and produce music. We have started an education center on 40 acres in Northern Minnesota call Atchingtan where everything is done via permaculture principles and earth based concepts. Working as a Release Manager in the health care industry, but continue to write, license and play music while producing musicians and projects in my own state of the art recording studio. We keep busy!!!!!

School Story:

Redwood was ok, and I met some of the best people there. However, Redwood was a bad experience for me. I was a troubled child and teen and had little support from the school network. I was labeled a loser and criminal (never having committed a crime) because I was a loner and known to dabble in the smoking arts a little along with my early career as a drummer in the works. Although I would reach out to the admin team, was ignored and treated badly. I left Redwood early on a CHSPE program so I can get on with my music career. I did take the GED and by the time I was 21, cleared DeVry University. I used my technology degree to advance my music career and did extremely well for myself having achieved multiple music awards. I took a break from performing and developed my skills as a stage technician, stage and production manager and continued to tour in small and large capacity touring projects. These skills helped me in crossing over the corporate america after some health issues. I development my management skills education technology of all things and received multiple awards from the British Education System by releasing and implementing Europe's first automated scoring system for Pearson Education. Subsequently introducing it to Australia and multiple countries. I split my time between corporate america and the music business ever since. So thanks to my friends who believed in me and those on the road who taught me real life skills. Redwood, sorry, I cannot attribute any of my success to you. I am sure you are a top notch school and continue to cater to your bias.
