2016 Fear Less

Here I am writing my first blog entry of 2016. I always hesitate to write anything because I often end up not completing the post or deciding in the end it isn’t worth publishing. I confess, I am a fearful person. For as long as I can remember, I was always the smallest, and always scared. I guess that’s how… Read more →

My First Video

Ok, I did it. I made my first video. This is a big deal for me since I haven’t ever posted a video of myself let alone one of me playing the piano.

July’s Artist Feature: Adriane Giebel

July’s artist feature is filmmaker Adriane Giebel: a multi-talented artist who is good at so many things it hardly seems fair. Adriane is one of the smartest women I know and is a film maker, producer, video editor, photographer, writer, and a bad-ass cook and marathon runner to boot (like I said, hardly seems fair). One of my favorite things… Read more →
