We go where the story take us...

Photography

STUDIO WORK. LIVE EVENTS.

Photography has always been a part of me. I love capturing moments and working with people who are passionate about what they do. I am available for onsite and studio projects.

Design

SOFTWARE DESIGN. CLOUD APP DEVELOPMENT.

I've been building commercial software and web applications for more than 25 years. I specialize in mobile and web technologies with a strong focus on end user experience.

Music

PLAYING. WRITING. LISTENING.

Music is a universal language. It has the unique ability to move us. As we embrace it, we get emotional currency that connects us to something greater than ourselves.

Creative

Smooth flavor. No calories.

There are moments in the creative process where something unseen flows through you like a rushing stream. You learn to embrace these moments.

What will you create?

May you choose joy in every moment as you discover new ways to paint your masterpiece. May you find happiness with each color you choose and take the moment to experience each layer you add.

May you find your voice with each stroke of the brush. May you gain strength as you contribute the movement and energy to your creation.

Carl Verheyen plays all that with his eyes closed... I didn't even know it was possible to be that good. OMG.

Don't hate the character... celebrate the author.

Great stories are always colored with conflict. And if someone is a self-righteous twat to you, celebrate how much work had to go into making a character that is so great at being an asshole. 

Stop depleting your energy with emotional reactions and celebrate your story. I mean how ridiculous would it be to get all pissed off at the villain from your favorite movie?

Tear Along the Dotted Line is another fine example of some purely absurd genius. It's jaw dropping at times. Netflix has gold with this short animated series.

They use audio techniques that I can only describe as frequency changes that trick the brain into feeling something deliberate. It is also the first time I've ever seen a visual representation of how my brain processes the world around me. OMG.

You have to watch on Netflix as it's an English remix that was originally in Italian. I love how they leave a lot of the original references and creatively use subtitles to drive points... even as the narrator is speaking English. 

Sometimes it feels like a simulation of a simulation... of yet another simulation. lol

I looked deeply into my Author's eyes and in that moment I realized, I had nothing to ask.

Wow... I am loving this crazy new setup. I threw the snare, opened the hats way up, put the ride on the left, one rack tom and the floor. I'm getting some great 808ish sounds from the kick and the wash from the ride to the open hats makes for some interesting grooves. 

This Mapex has a very musical tone and the tunings pitch bend easily across the three drums. I got to discover some really cool note bending last night! Super fun. Coming from the Roland TD50, these are acoustic perks I miss.
