“Songs I Wrote in the ’80s” music video

This one takes my previous video, “Antidote,” to the next level: a logical progression from studio to stage. Enjoy! Special thanks to Pat Redd and School of Rock Overland Park. Trivia: • The song itself was inspired by Jason Webley (troubadour accordionist extraordinaire). Late into one of his shows, when taking audience requests, someone shouted […]

Finding the Light album released!

The day has come! Finding the Light is my first commercially released album. It was a total DIY production crafted over the course of nine months, with me writing, performing, and mixing every track in my home studio, whose songs form a loose theme: the fall and rise of a musician. A music video at […]

“Antidote” music video

With my Finding the Light album release this week, I figured I should preview a full track. And in the same spirit as the recording process, why not keep the video DIY, too? Trivia: • Self-shot with a single GoPro on a gooseneck clamp in my Womb With a View studio. • This was the […]

What would convince you to eat another human being? This is our first topic on a new must-listen podcast: Important Question? where we explore and debate such taboos with the profundity and absurdity and hilarity they warrant.

Major Inversions audiobook

Remember my debut novel from back in 2009? Ever wanted to cut out the eyeball middlemen and have the author’s voice streaming between your ears handsfree? Of all my fiction, Major Inversions made the most sense for an audiobook treatment because: • it’s written in first person, so the entire narrative is “in character” • […]

Book Layout Tips

The rise of self-publishing means more authors are taking on unfamiliar roles, with mixed results. To put it kindly. I’ll leave the marketing/promotion advice to others, but one aspect I can speak to with some authority is design. I’ve designed all three of my own books, assisted with several others, and worked on a ton […]

Telecine column at ManArchy

I’m contributing semi-regularly to a new column at ManArchy Magazine called Telecine. The term itself describes the process of transferring film to tape or disk. Of course, it also sounds like a cool amalgamation of “television” and “cinema,” which will be my areas of focus. Expect articles covering movie trends, retrospectives, witty observations about screens […]

Book Trailer (Warmed and Bound)

To coincide with today’s release of Warmed and Bound: A Velvet Anthology, I created this promo. It’s composed of imagery inspired by stories in the collection, including original music from me. The intent is to evoke a feeling, a mood—ominous, violent, and redemptive—rather than paint specific settings or characterizations. Multi-plane animation (a.k.a. “2.5-D”) was used […]

MP3 Manipulation

I just downloaded a file/mp3 on a friend’s computer. it’s in iTunes and I can burn it. thing is, it’s a live recording and only one file and too long to fit on a single disc. is there a way to break it up into individual tracks and not have pauses between them when playing? […]
