Student Intro

Hey everyone, my names Otis and right now I live in Santa Rosa, CA, two-ish hours north of SF. Im originally from Manhattan but have been moving around most of my life, through upstate New York, Boston, Austin, New Orleans and eventually to California. Not sure why but just seemed like being pretty nomadic worked well for me and my mom. I would be a senior in high school this year but I got my G.E.D during my junior year and got out of school as quickly as I could. It’s not the best choice for everyone, but I’ve been loving it, working at a bakery in town and having as much time as possible to play music and skate. It’s been a pretty solid gap year so far but I’m sure it’ll pale in comparison to what the next three months of our lives will be like, life-changing and eye opening and all that 🙂 See y’all soon!
