    Two of my biggest regrets: 1. Not applying to work for Headspace/Beatnik 2. Not attending Thomas’ live concert when it came to town. Thanks, TED for helping ease the pain. :) Mr. Dolby-Robertson: your music means so much to me. Record sales are a terribly poor indicator of the depth and breadth of people who understand and appreciate your work.
