Last you heard from me, I was hanging withMew2King, the #1 Super Smash Bros Melee player. Now I wonder...
Seen any Cybears lately? This month, I was invited by Saatchi & Saatchi to attend an art show by Jason Woodside, a New York City-based artist who uses various patterns, shapes, and colors to showcase his inventive vision. I also got to don a "Cy-Bear" head -- you can see it in action in a Capri Sun commercial, and see more photos from the night on my website!
You can also see some of Woodside's work at Roberta's pizza in Brooklyn, which I haven't eaten at yet but, I've only heard great things. Have you?
Now, back on to you. This letter is all about ART and CREATION! From musical performances to art shows to video production.
KEEP YOUR PROJECTS COMING!

Trevor McQueen is a recent graduate of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. He made his Broadway debut as Little Jake in the revival of Annie Get Your Gun. Trevor's love of music began at a very young age, while listening to Benny Goodman records in his neighbor's living room. He had the privilege of experiencing Pittsburgh's tremendous music scene while studying at university, playing with some of the city's most talented emerging and established musicians. Trevor has been consistently featured at Jazz at Andys at the Fairmont Pittsburgh for the past two years, headlining with such greats as legendary drummer Roger Humphries.
