Good Now! I hope you’re doing splentastic!

Welcome to my 3rd home, the second one being my YouTube channel where I dump all of my creative energy, and my first home obviously being where I actually live.

The short of it:

I’m a great ape with a variety of interests that enjoys being creative.

The TL;DR:

I enjoy creating a wide variety of videos ranging from whisper-quiet, relaxing, traditional & avant-garde ASMR videos to unfiltered, freeform podcasts covering every topic under the sun and beyond. Except the podcast is currently on hiatus.

I am in independent, D.I.Y., autodidact jack-of-all-trades: father, husband, ex-roman-catholic-turned-non-believer, critical thinker, freethinker, cynical optimist, skeptic, artist, actor, comedian, unpublished writer/lyricist/poet, photographer, videographer, director, producer, video editor, sound designer, foley artist, audio engineer, costume designer, set designer, prop designer, makeup artist, foodie, gamer, and even a hybrid stoic-nihilist-humanist-naturalist-anarchist who belongs to no group nor ideology.

Oh, and I was diagnosed in 2010 with having an acoustic neuroma in my left ear which led to permanent hearing loss and tinnitus in that ear. So I’m like a modern-day Beethoven, except I suck at composing music.

After spending most of my life trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life creatively, I stumbled onto the ASMR “genre” on YouTube in the spring of 2012. That’s when I realized the thing I experienced all my life had a name, and the rest is history.
