My dream is to use the creative arts to tell tales, make people laugh, grow businesses, and help people. I'm pushing for social progress through the arts.
Keep scrolling to see examples of some of the ways I'm trying to do this. My favorite mediums are comics, music, modern zen, and design.
The Nonsense Society is a creative community I started in 2009. Together, hundreds of artists around the world share their work in seasonal projects.
Nonsense Thoughts is a comic series. For years I've been carrying sketchbooks around with me and drawing things about life and humanity that I find funny and inspiring.
Indie Music Box is a growing collection of royalty-free music. I offer inexpensive, independent music compositions to aspiring filmmakers and multimedia artists.
Today I Evolve started out as a personal journal for me, but has grown into a series of short, relatable articles about new zen and the art of being better every day.

I’m often compelled to be someone specific. I find new ways of living and admire qualities of people I see. I try to emulate these people and try to force myself to live in these ways. It’s exhausting and it’s not true to myself. Some weeks I am passive and peaceful. Some days I am firey and inspired. Is that a problem?
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” - Lao-Tzu
Move with the wind in your life. Whatever feels right at this moment, work with it. Find something good and honorable about the space you are in, and use it. You can’t be zen all the time. You can’t be laughing all the time. You can’t be strong all the time. It’s the change in winds that makes life so interesting and wonderful. So be the best version of yourself that you can be as life moves and changes around you. You too will have to move and change as the wind changes around you. Enjoy it.
