It’s a nice cold winter’s night 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).

Check out my completed projects HERE

 

Here’s what I’m working on Now

Movies

Editing our film called Who Killed Grace? based on the Null Paradox song Addiction

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

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.

Writing and directing a series of short films.  My mission is telling a complete, engaging story in 3 minutes or less.

Live Shows

Planning the 2019 Null Paradox tour.   Re-writing the script for our live show.  Re-casting acting roles.  Working on the promotional piece of the tour–the part that always seems the hardest.

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.

Photography

Monthly photoshoots to support these projects.

Books

Null Paradox Book 2 is 1/2 written.  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.

Minimalism photo book:  Shooting a photo collection about Minimalism.

Travel photo book:  Shooting a photo collection about Travel Places.  The book will include recommendations on where to travel, how to travel, and where to stay.

Gothic photo book:  Shooting a photo collection for Gothic Girl Art Magazine.  The book will include select photos, behind-the-scenes photos, concepts, story narratives, location information, and all the people who worked to make each photo happen.

Steampunk photo book:  Shooting a photo collection for Steampunk Art Magazine.  The book will include select photos, behind-the-scenes photos, concepts, story narratives, location information, and all the people who worked to make each photo happen.

Music

Writing an R&B music album.

Writing the 3rd Null Paradox album.  Denial, the first song from the album has been released.

Other

Working on designing, coding, and building a series of robots.  More on this soon.

One-Person Listening Tour:  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 understanding why.  This is something I feel I need to do.  Outcome:  understand how to help people to succeed and then helping them to succeed, one person at a time.

Preparing a new monthly video blog where I interview artists working across the spectrum of art called Art Behind The Scenes.  This project has now been combined with Garden Moxie.
