I would love to work as a song writer and be in that creative environment. Music is one of the few things I’d say is more valuable than currency of any kind. About every other week I drive forty five about minutes to a friends place to make and produce different tracks with him. Daily I’m doing some sort of writing, annotating my work, making mock album covers, send material out for feed back, constantly thinking of new ideas, and angles. I believe if I continue to keep this going at this rate something positive will come out of it.

A goal I’ve set for myself is to become more comfortable with preforming my material. So in my spare time I’m scoping out local open mics, showing more people what I’ve written, and becoming less guarded with my work. I’d like to inspire people all over to share yourself, your creativeness, and talents. Some people may not like it, and that’s fine because everything isn’t for everybody. Yet you will find a feeling of freedom when you become comfortable enough to take the criticism. Maybe I could encourage someone in twenty thousand miles away to share a hidden talent, and that would make this whole experience worth it.
