Right now I’m working on the following, all of which I’m very excited about:
1) Finishing my solo classical/spanish guitar album – I finished writing the songs about a year ago and now I’m in the recording phase. It’s taken me longer than expected, but I hope to be done early 2016. Before I release the full album, I’ll be releasing each song individually on SoundCloud.
2) Developing my side business that I started with my brother earlier this year – We started an ecommerce store that sells security and surveillance equipment. It is our first foray into the ecommerce world, and we want to help demystify the process of choosing and installing security systems.
3) Performing with the incredibly talented Chloe Temtchine – Her music is absolutely beautiful, and her story is amazing. She is based out of New York, but is living in LA for the next 6 months or so performing. While she is here, I’ll be performing as her guitarist. It is an honor for me to be able to perform alongside her and I’m very excited. Her album, “Be Brave” just came out on iTunes, and I encourage everyone to check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
4) Learning Spanish – I decided this year to learn Spanish. I’ve always wanted to and now is the time. I’ve been using Duolingo, which is an amazing app. I highly recommend. Next on my list is French.
5) Working as a Scientist – I’m a Optochemical Engineer and I work on the development and implementation of optochemical sensors in the fields of aerospace, health/medicine, and environmental science.
That’s it for the time being. I will update this page in the New Year of 2016. Thanks so much to Derek Sivers for inspiring this.
