Barrett Tuttobene, son of MaryElizabeth Barrett (DSPS), is enjoying his second tour abroad with his musical partner in crime in their two man math rock group, 100 Onces. They are spending 29 days playing 25 gigs in England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. In a recent review of a large festival that they played, my son was called a "brash confidence oozer playing inexplicable riffs." The band was also named one of the top 5 bands of the festival. He comes home the end of September, spends a few weeks, and then heads off on a national tour.

"This accomplishment came about when I met an instructor from that department at UCLA while I was up at Bruin Woods (Lake Arrowhead Conference Center) with my family. She encouraged me to visit Moore Hall at UCLA explained how to apply and transfer units over from my Masters from Azusa Pacific University. When I hesitated to invest the time, energy, and finances, Dr. Davitt encouraged me to go for it. I was able to tell him I was "All But Filed" (ABF) when he came to the most recent employee recognition awards and he directed me to finish what I started. I finally did! Subsequently, I am now performing the role of Student Equity Cordinator at Glendale Community College in addition to celebrating 15 years of instructing as an adjunct in Kinesiology."
