Water Horizons

It has been a great while since I've seen the ocean. Usually I don't go more than a couple months without visiting salted water of some sort. I believe I have an inner magnet to the ocean, or at least to big bodies of water. I've never been a big fan of staying in a land locked places for too long, and it kind of itches inside when it's been a while since I've seen a water-sky horizon. My favorite time of day to visit the ocean is definitely at dusk. And depending on where the beach is located you might have the sun coming up from the water or on the opposite side of it. I've had the opportunity...

What Day is It?

Oh yeah, it's a Tuesday! Right? Wrong. The concept of days, weeks, and months feel kind of irrelevant these days. Like having money but not spending it, what's the point of that! 😂 *Sigh* Who would have thought 2020 would be such a, how do I put it, peculiar year. That's just mild compared to how most people feel about 2020, from what I've gathered. I totally sympathize with those feelings; life during a global pandemic is atrocious, and the amount of suffering inconceivable.  But I want to keep this one light and positive. My hope is always to learn a lesson from the hardship. In this case, so far I've learned that I need to visit my family more often. My dad is...

My Happy Place - Self Portraits

Some of my happiest moments have been when I do photoshoots all by myself. It's more time consuming than having someone else push the camera button for me, but it's a lot more rewarding and liberating. I feel more in control of the creative process, I get to direct the photoshoot and star in it. All while learning new skills in lighting, modeling, and editing.  In my bag of essentials to do this kind of self portraits you will find a tripod and a remote to trigger my camera to shoot. You will also find that I carry with me a pocket size LED light in case I need to brighten my face. Also, something very important; spare batteries.  The locations of these...

About my new song Dump Him and how it came to be

It's official! My new song Dump Him is live! Woohoo! 🥳  I wanted to expand a little bit about this particular song. This is what I'm calling my quarantine project, cause I made it happen during the stay at home order, and it's my first time in a while that I mixed and mastered myself.  Under normal circumstances I wouldn't have had the time to sit down in front of my laptop and mix a song for hours like I did with this one. So I'm grateful I took the time to do it, and it actually kept my sanity during this very uncertain time in our lives.  Technically, this song is a remix. The inception of it actually goes back...
