You are NOT what you do

I want to ask you something important. I want you to think for a moment about who you are.

No, I’m not asking what’s your job, or what you like to do in your free time.
I’m asking you who you are.

It’s pretty hard to separate the two, isn’t it?

Recording Session – Bedroom Objects

Hi folks!

Just the other day, I was doing some sound-design for a project, and none of the sounds I already had were “just right” for what I needed.

So what do you do in those cases?

Unexpected Gap Year

Yeah, so I just realized that the last year (2014) has been my gap year, and I didn’t even intended it to be.
Last year, at the end of my last job, I thought I was gonna try to create a business around my art.

Little did I know of what would be ahead…

A (rather obvious) tip on taking action

This one is a quicky.

Let’s face it, far too many times we think we should do this or that and never do. Sometimes we even try to figure out what we could do that would make us feel truly fulfilled.

Well I tend to use a little something on those occasions.

Finding your artist self… maybe
