I live in Guelph - an artsy, tree hugging university town in Ontario. I work hard to be a creative and innovative influence in the places I find myself. Most of the time that looks like networking with other creatives, researching, or filling up my sketchbook / journal with ideas.

dammit, we need direction!

I've been doing so much thinking lately; I spend a lot of time reading blogs online, listening to podcasts, writing fiction, and reflecting. I know that i have a lot of opinions and thoughts, but it feels so empty to just have them and not say something about what I believe. That being said, I've come to the conclusion that i need to be more intentional about developing my voice.

so, I've decided to ramp up the blogging - there'll be a lot more in the future. I also want to bring my creative thinking to bear in order to offer a more diverse presentation. That's code for 'I want to do something else cool, but I haven't thought of it yet." A blog is a perfect forum for sharpening my communication skills, but it's also at the mercy of my whim.

Unfortunately, the artist psyche often carries with it certain tendencies towards, um, relaxed commitment. I will grapple with this monster in order to bring to the readership (basically myself) a well thought and insightful commentary on the subject matter that I encounter.
