My Experience

I’ve been playing music since I was seven years old and making movies on my mom’s camcorder from when I was 12.  In high school, I took a photography class.  My photo teacher seemed to like my work so much that he helped me complete my final assignment although I was technically suspended from school.  I’ve also spent tons of time writing journals, blog posts, songs and poems.

I’ve done my best to be consistent in most of the creative areas that I practice.  Given that I’ve started these arts so long ago, there’s a lot of information to share!  I plan to deliver this wealth of knowledge in my trademark infotainment style.  That means I emphasize humor and the overall experience of learning.

Mixcubes – 16 Reasons to Buy

Mixcubes are one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. Get some mixcubes here before you make another bad mix.

Sonimus Satson Plug-in Comparison Shootout

We all wanna be big, big stars. We got different reasons for that but I’m pretty sure we share the common fantasy of going to the studio, sitting behind the console, snorting blow while getting blown by height-challenged groupies.  Or maybe that’s just me.  Welcome to my satson plug-in comparison shootout. Regardless, that image just doesn’t seem as cool if the console was replaced with a laptop – much

We forgo aesthetic, present living and artistic fulfillment. We forgo religion and

The Road To Mastery (How Long Till I’m Good?)

“It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll.” – AC/DC You’ve failed.  You tried, failed and wondered why you’re not good enough.  Maybe you don’t have what it takes.  Maybe “those people” have better parents, grew up in a fostering environment.  “Actually,” you reason, “it’s karma.”  Maybe that’s all true.  Despite these outward conditions, I think we all go through a similar inner experience
