Last year I simplified my goal list, bringing it down to my top important things I wanted to accomplish. Even though I posted them late last year, I will revisit them today to see how well I did with them. (Even with a nerdy little score - 1 point for... Continue reading

I was originally going to compare blogging to the chirping of crickets but couldn't really think of how to go about writing it, so I left that post to stew in my drafts for quite some time. Then the other day I randomly came across an article on musician blogging... Continue reading

You might have momentarily lapse of motivation, question why you are doing whatever it is that you are doing, you might be temporarily uninspired... whatever the case is, never forget why you started.

I just got back from a stroll around downtown with a local musician while doing photography for his promo for his upcoming album release next year. We hit up a few locations in the downtown area, and spent the time chatting about music and video stuff. Ended up on a... Continue reading

Nearly three years ago, we were on set of the No Ghost music video shoot. (Whoa! I can't believe it's been that long already! No wonder I am having a hard time remembering this day!) This was my first little dance in the music video world, and I LOVED IT!... Continue reading

The last question of my reader survey asked if you had any questions for me (as I was originally planning on doing a "Q&A" post.) However, only a few of you asked me a question so I've decided to answer each one separately. So the first question I am going... Continue reading

Being consistently creative/inspired can be challenging at times for the best of us. Anything can affect your creative output (mood, lack of inspiration, motivation, external influences beyond your control, etc.) It is only you who can be the change in figuring out what is uninspiring you, getting back on track,...

"It's not about ideas, It's about making ideas happen." This is a quote I need to tell myself on a (unfortunate) regular basis. I am always coming up with different ideas. (Probably too many that one person can handle at times.) Which will be anything from a quick and easy... Continue reading

I kind of got called out for not posting show announcements... (thank you to whoever you were) Not that I am making excuses (I take full responsibility) but I think that is a result of being the one who posts their next show dates in bandsintown/facebook. I feel that I... Continue reading

Not an overly long "Life, Lately" post this month... November just flew by! (It feels like it was Halloween just yesterday, and now we are on the countdown to Christmas - crazy!) Although, I can't wait for this year to be over and have a new year to start fresh... Continue reading
