Hey guys… I have some news!  I’m ridiculously excited to say that after two long years of having my studio packed up in boxes and stored in a spare room in my attic apartment….

I have finally found my new studio!!!!!!!!

I never saw this one coming, but I have decided to buy a place with a dedicated loft, which will be the new permanent home for the Danger studio!! Gasp! Crazy right?! As a stereotypical sagittarian who is bad with finances and permanence, this is certainly the largest purchase of my life. (The next will be my dream of owning a VJ van… more on that later!)

I have been super busy packing up my beloved multi-colored apartment that I’ve lived in for over 10 years and am getting ready to kick into the next journey. I’ll be moving at the end of July and really could not be happier. This also means that I will not be taking on any additional freelance projects until August/September, once I am settled into the new studio. Lately all I’ve been doing is nothing but juggling the day job, mortgage paperwork and ArtWalk preparations – but now that the Artwalk is over I can really focus on packing up and moving out.

Speaking of which, thanks so much to everyone who dropped by to see me and support my video and print work at the Stamford Artwalk.  If you missed it, the next time you find yourself on Bedford Street, you can still catch my art exhibit on display at Lorca until the end of August.

The very last of my Danger t-shirts are on sale there as well. There are only 8 left and will probably not be made again after they are gone. I plan on creating a whole new line this year to replace them.

If you are interested in checking out or purchasing any of the prints that I was selling outside during Artwalk, please check out my etsy shop. For an extra 10% off, use coupon code SUMMER until August 1st. All proceeds will be supporting the new studio!!

We had a blast, setting up multiple video projectors downtown Stamford at the Palace Theater on Friday and on the side of the library on Bedford Street on Saturday night!  Check out a few photos that were captured in action below. It all worked out so well that conversations have already begun spinning ideas on how we can continue bringing this type of work to downtown throughout the summer. Stay tuned!

Here is a shot of my animation “Soul Seasons” on the Palace Theater.

Next up, I’ll be heading to one of my favorite cities, for my yearly respite to Portland, Oregon. I’ll be a first time attendee at the World Domination Summit. It’s a conference for creative entrepreneurs of all kinds and showcases a ton of my inspirational heros. I’m desperately in need of a recharge and there is no better place, in my opinion, than Portland, my creative haven soulmate city! Feel free to connect with me out there if you are in the area or at the event!   I’ll be out there from July 10th-July 15th and I can’t wait to have Mt Hood in the visible distance again!!!

Fate Loves the Fearless

11.08.2013

There have been a few moments in the last month, where I think I’ve experienced a magnetism pulling me in a new direction, some sort of “sign”. Or maybe it’s not a “sign”, maybe it’s a higher perception that we synchronize with for a moment and feel a new kind of clarity. Whatever it is, I felt it. And this time I decided to act on it without fear of change holding me back.

I’ll be turning thirty-four in 3 weeks (on the island of Anguilla no less!) and I see this as a turning point in my life and in my career. Time to make moves and shake things up. The Flaming Lips sung a song that struck a chord with me a few weeks ago when they sung, “All we have is now…” One of the most beautiful and exhilarating live performances I’ve seen in awhile.

Over the last few years I’ve really honed in on some skills that I’m passionate about and have wanted to focus my life on entirely. Video editing, after effects animation, motion graphics, live performance art and video installations. I love being around crazy vibrant people who live and breathe creativity daily. I love traveling around the world and exposing myself to this beautiful place we live in while creating art inspired by those experiences. I know all of these things brings out the best in me, and I want to invite more of that into my life on a daily basis in the coming year.

A whole new life is cultivating here and it all starts now!  Wish me luck as I charge forward with a headful of new ideas for my future. The future is now!
