BF6 People's Champ...

Hey all - just a big THANK-YOU to everyone who took the time
to show your support for my work... I really appreciate it!
I've never been too on top of the social media thing.
Whether I make it to the final round or not, I'm looking foward to
seeing everyone out in Cali for an amazing show! Was great to be in
the running with some really talented guys... best of luck to you!
