Productivity + Creativity

I come up with ideas, and I make them happen. I’m driven to do more—and to do it my own way.

    I run a strategy company.

If you can create something …

… no one’s going to create it for you.

If you never bring your ideas into being, what once was “potential” will never exist.

I’ve created more than 1,000 original art pieces and have written more than 250 original compositions. I launched a company that does five departments’ worth of work—with just five people.

When you bring productivity and creativity together, you can push creative output beyond what’s believed to be reasonable. And that’s what this site is all about.

I believe having creative ideas and skills is a responsibility. Neglecting to create what I’m capable of is wasting potential. That’s why learning how to do more, do it better, and do it in less time matters to me.

I build logical systems to enhance creative output. This site is where a lot of that output lives.

You can explore my projects, giveaways, how-to articles, and ideas on the blog.

I’m not one to over-explain the creative projects I make, but I’ve already been getting enough “what does it mean?” questions that I’ll drop you a few hints. ;) The … Continue reading “Copenhagenism: coming April 2017 (concept album)”

Dead Sunday (or, The Leech in the Tree)

Naked you stand at the edge of the worlds. One, you have never visited. The other, you can never visit again. Nobody knows why this happens. It’s not like you have a choice. You will cross over. You absolutely will. And you cannot turn back to the place you came from. All you can choose … Continue reading “Dead Sunday (or, The Leech in the Tree)”

I wrote a novel in a month: 10 things I learned

I’ve never thought of myself as a writer. So this year, I decided to change that by writing a novel in a month. To do that, I took part in National Novel Writing Month (also known as NaNoWriMo)—a writing challenge that people all over the world can take part in. To “win” the challenge, you … Continue reading “I wrote a novel in a month: 10 things I learned”
