ABOUT ME

H E L L O

I AM Based IN MALAYSIA (KUALA LUMPUR/Petaling Jaya) area * near Jaya One, give me a shout, text, email... at 0103608121

I am regularly involved in the arts & music of South East Asia. If you have a specific interest in this vein, please feel free to reach out & contact me.

I will be in Singapore January 2016 ~ give me a shout, text, or email

General purpose for traveling is. . .

Informing and connecting creative based individuals and businesses on global level.

The project, titled Moments of Truth, began as a mission to ride a 1985 Honda Nighthawk 650CB from Vancouver B.C. to the Guatemala boarder while meeting creative individuals to learn about their work and process. That completed in September 2008 I've hopped over to Asia to continue the search for the stories and inspirations of creatives.

After a visit to someone's creative space, I ask questions focused on their creative passion(s). Maybe they're not necessarily making a living at it, but definitely putting a major portion of their time and efforts toward it.

Are you interested in 'sharing' with others?

Please provide the following to be considered:
1. A web site or some pictures of your work ( deviantart, etsy, myspace dedicated to it, etc...)
2. A few sentences about what you do and what you are trying to accomplish with your efforts.
3. Contact info (email and/or phone #)

This is a traveling endeavor, flexibility is a major factor as there's no way to know for sure where we might be when. If you can manage to set aside some time, please do contact me.

To see the project in motion stop by
Moments of Truth http://momentsoftruth.wordpress.com/
Suggestions of people you know, friends, family, yourself.. . are welcome.
Thank your for your support!

PHILOSOPHY

¨The young man who has drunk for the first time from that spring is as happy as if he had found a treasure of wisdom; he is positively enraptured. He will pick up any discourse, draw all its ideas together to make them into one, then take them apart and pull them to pieces. He will puzzle first himself, then also others, badger whoever comes near him, young and old, sparing not even his parents, nor anyone who is willing to listen. . . .¨
