Find out your TDEE estimate with an online calculator and add 300-500 calories and adjust it over time based on how fast you're gaining. You could probably cut on 2k that's not nearly enough, sounds like you should be bulking at around 2700 but only you an determine that, just start with a TDEE calculator and go from there, they're usually decently accurate.

EDIT: also up your fats to at least 63g (.45/lb).
