WHEN YOU SELL A DIRTY TRAFFIC CONE IN A CASTLE


I’m pleased to announce that my gallery in Frankfurt sold a big print of my “Cone Tar” in Kronberg Castle! Who says splotches of goo can’t be visual medicine? It’s always reaffirming to have a new collector, delighting in life from the same viewpoint on the edge. #gratitude

ELVIS AND I, ARE STILL ALIVE


Hi Everyone! So I wanted to share with you the fun surprise that my gallery recently scored this exhibition of my CLOSER NY dibond prints in the Palais Livingston in Frankfurt’s banking district, in the room that is home to the Frankfurt Press Club!

Elvis made the party… reminding me that “being alive” truly is subject to public perception, as many of you have been asking what ever happened to me these past months! Just know that I’m working tirelessly on a career secret that I can’t wait to share with you, that I’m still alive, and that I’ve missed you.

KNEE DEEP IN SPACE THERMALS


So for every podcast episode I’ll soon be releasing, there will be an associated costume that I custom assemble around the show’s theme and guests! Here’s a sneak peek of episode 1.

ANDRE FRATTO TO COMPOSE PODCAST THEME SONG!


I announce with sheer delight that the wildly talented composer Andre Fratto will be the creator of my upcoming podcast’s theme music! Andre has played and mixed for countless record labels. He worked with Oscar winners John Patrick Shanley and Philip Seymour Hoffman as composer and music director with The Labyrinth Theater Company in NY. Recently composing, performing, and producing (along with co-writer Leah Siegel) the theme music for the television series “Haven” based on the book “The Colorado Kid” by Stephen King, on the SyFy network, Andre is currently scoring two new films, and is a treasure of a human being. It’s a huge gift to have him, and his genius, onboard! MORE

RUNNING WITH FERVOR IN PRIVATE


Friends! I haven’t been posting as much lately because I am hard at work developing my audio show behind-the-scenes. But I wanted to pop in to say I’m wishing you a multitude of creative Pows! and the very best Bang of an idea as Spring takes you over. Thank you for your support and I’ll have a consistent outpouring of new perspectives coming your way in the near future. Be well, Everyone!

THE ATHENA MANTRA


Presenting my first MANTRA ME custom audio / video piece, created for the incredibly strong and adventurous Athena!

Themes I speak to here, based on our phone interview, include: Athena’s breaking through illusion and living powerfully sober, having an unmedicated bipolar alcoholic mother, her future dream of traveling as a nomad in an RV, and her commitment to transforming our health care industry. Because Athena is the first person in her family to graduate from college, I speak her poem over a soft background of graduation music.

A strong willed, motorcycle riding goddess who shines out to the world her resilience, warmth, and humor… Athena is a great lady to know.

MY ENGINEER EXTRAORDINAIRE, ELIA EINHORN!


It is with sheer delight that I announce my new creative partnership with sound engineer and singer/musician extraordinaire, Elia Einhorn! Elia will be engineering and co-editing my podcast (in development), and I’m honored to have both his genius and his warm character onboard.

As for Elia, he’s the chief sound engineer at www.thetalkhouse.com and front man for the group Fashion Brigade. If he’s not heading to record in the homes of Kim Kattrall, Harvey Weinstein, or Laurie Anderson all in a day’s work, he’s performing alongside Ira Glass and Fred Armisen at benefit events! A recent import from Chicago, Elia makes amazing things happen wherever he goes, and that’s a testament to both his talent and his generosity of spirit.

More news on our collaboration in the months to come! MORE

BE MY MANTRA BOX GUINEA PIG!


Dear Friends,

I am developing a new product, and I am seeking three people from among you to practice on!

WHAT YOU WILL GET: a high value, signed, custom performance piece about your life, programmed onto a 2” push-button playback device, in exchange for simply offering me 10 minutes of yourself via a recorded call, and a testimonial once you’ve received your piece!

MANTRA ME is a 90-second poem about you, written & performed by me. My Mantra Boxes are a new form of custom performance art where I speak to your pain, your person, or your projected desired future, with the intention of prompting emotional catharsis, self-connection, and life celebration within you.

Maybe you need support breaking through addictive thoughts or patterns?
Maybe you are suffering a breakup and need some emotional anchoring to get you through to the other side?
Or maybe you are simply curious about owning a one-of-a-kind performance box that offers my take on who you are?

IF YOU’D LIKE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR MY FREE PRACTICE ROUND, CLICK and you will find a link to a form. Please fill it out and submit it back to me by midnight on Thursday 10/2, and I will be in touch! MORE

GET BEHIND THE MIC WITH ME!


Dear Friends,

I have been silent during some significant life transitions these past two months. I hope the summer has treated you all well!

I wanted to let you know that I’m back, and that I’m currently creating a podcast focused on shaking up our perspectives on relationship – in the broadest sense of the term – expanding upon the more audio driven nature of my recent work, The Betrayal Project. (For those of you who have inquired, yes, you will see its face again!)

Why a podcast? I met this summer with Howard Stern’s former manager at CBS Radio, and I’ve thankfully been granted use of the CBS studio for recording a radio pilot. I have also been offered the directional support of the Founder of Big City Radio as well as Programming VP at SiriusXM – both of whom are ready to receive and review my sample clips as I have them prepared – a huge gift. As a podcast acts as the sister format to virtually all radio programs today, there’s no reason not to get started with one as my next step on this path.

WHAT’S UP


Tomorrow marks the one month anniversary of a powerful change in my life. I’ll leave you guessing over this melting ice cream I found in Red Hook. I am wishing each of you a particularly warmhearted and spirited Memorial Day weekend, and remember that something as simple as a push pop could open you to a new universe. I will resume sharing new videos next week.
