This year has been nothing but wonderful blessings in disguise. Although, I am more comfortable behind the scene, I had a desire to perform more and I have. I got my feet wet at Indigo Lounge and from there other projects started to present themselves. now I am performing in May with The Young Poet Society and a play called "Womban" in June.
I've had my ups and downs but I've always managed to see the positive in every situation. People come and go in our lives so we can learn and grow from one another. I have no regrets. It is very important to surround yourself with people who are positive, secure and selfless. There is enough space for everyone to be heard, understood and appreciated in the world. Respect others and all will come back full circle.
I've been putting together events since 2003. So much has changed, yet my vision becomes clearer each year. I feel I have found my purpose: to bring about awareness, activism and education in the form of artistic expression. Honestly, I am letting my heart and my soul guide me. Trusting in the unknown can be scary but I am learning that the universe works in mysterious ways if you allow it.
As an artist, I won't lie, it has been the hardest thing for me to stay committed in doing a monthly event like Indigo Lounge. However, there has been such positive feedback and I have been told from several well known sources that I contributed something different and unique to the L.A scene. That gave me fuel to keep pushing on. I appreciate everyone who continues to believe in this vision I've had since High School.
I plan on producing One-Offs like I used to. One offs are a few random shows/events that pop up from time to time through out the year. I am in desperate need of taking a vacation. Sometime this summer I will take a long awaited hiatus. Moving about the country for a year or two seems more and more of an option to me these days. My thirst for travel, culture, sociology, and the arts remain my inspiration and part of my identity. I hope you continue to follow my journey, wherever I go and whatever I will continue to produce. I'll always promise to give you the best in eclectic entertainment for the soul, open mind and free spirited. I have other projects in development. So stay tuned!
