I think we all have music inside us, but we may not know how to tap into it. Join me as I talk about making music, about finding your inner rhythm, about expressing yourself with sound. It doesn't matter if you have a talent for it, all that matters is that you make yourself heard.… Continue reading The Prometheus Project Podcast – Ep 36 – Making Music

Some goals are easier than others, so some can be achieved quickly (then you’re done)… Continue reading Happy New Year – 2019
