It’s a nice cold December in Detroit.  As a native of Florida, I find the freezing weather perfect inspiration to not go outside and instead focus on writing (books and music), planning (live events) and coding (theatrical robots).

Here’s what I’m working on Now

Completed!  Releasing my second music album with Null Paradox (Interactive Rock Opera) in 2017 February called Love or Destiny

Designing and building movie sets as we get ready to re-shoot the first half of our film.  Shooting short film called Who Killed Grace? based on the Null Paradox song Addiction

Scouting locations.  Planning the 2017 Null Paradox tour (focusing on the financial piece of the tour–the part that always seems that hardest)

Update:  Focusing on entrepreneurs/small business owners and those who want to become entrepreneurs.  Preparing to go on a one-person listening tour throughout the United States in 2017.  One of the things I learned with our most recent elections is that there’s a lot of people who aren’t happy.  I’m interested in listening and learning.  No idea where this is going to go, but it’s something I feel I need to do.

Book is 1/3 written and 1 song has a demo recorded (of 10).  Writing the next book and music album for Null Paradox called Victoria & Seth.  One of the protagonists is autistic and based in part on Dr. Temple Grandin

Writing an R&B music album

Co-writing a film script about Edsel Ford (son of Henry Ford) with my friend Betty Riggs with the working title of Steel

My father unexpectedly passed away on 2017 May 18.  He always wanted this project to be a comedic musical.  We had many great conversations and wrote a lot together and independently during the development of But Do You Love Me (working title).  It’s my intent to complete this musical and perform it in his honor.

Monthly photoshoots to support these projects

Editing first video.  Preparing a new monthly video blog where I interview artists working across the spectrum of art called Art Behind The Scenes

Four sets of photographs posted.  Shooting a photo collection about Minimalism

Planning a short film based on the cover art of Led Zeppelin’s In Through the Out Door album.

Editing.  Fragile Soul movie after feedback from Sundance Film Festival.

Launched Relaunching Gothic Girl Art Magazine in 2017 June.

Looking at relaunching Steampunk Art Magazine during 2017 or 2018.
