I am proud to announce that I was one of 12 recipients of the first round of the Essentials Fund Micro Grant, offered on a rolling basis seasonally from Amplify Arts. A total of $4,022 was awarded to artists of various disciplines to use for equipment, professional development, supplies, marketing, or research. The funds I received are going towards marketing materials, headshots, an audio demo and a film reel. My audio reel is already in the works, thanks to Andy Mimms at Shadow Lake Productions!
