So right at the beginning of the year, my good friend Hal Stern says “Hey, my son Ben applied to Tufts University for their music program, and I want to commemorate it if he gets accepted. He submitted a video where he played ‘Baby Elephant Walk’ by himself, because an elephant is Tufts’ mascot. Can you do a piece for me putting all of that together?”

Not only did Ben get accepted, but this commission paid for my table at C2E2. Thanks a bunch Hal! And congratulations Ben!
