You never forget your first.
So I guess this is a big thing. I recently finished a blogging seminar in Toronto, Canada, with a blogging expert from Montreal who goes by the name of Mitch Joel
. For those of you who are interested, his company is called Twist Image
. I've taken a few courses through the Canadian Marketing Association
before, but I seemed to enjoy this one the most. If you get a chance, go listen to Mitch speak, he's quite entertaining.
I've been meaning to start a blog for a long time now, and this is my first ever posting!
I don't know where I should begin, or what I should say?
I guess the big thing for me right now is that I love making music, and I'm currently producing an EP for a Toronto synth-pop band called Lowmega
. I have been playing around with song-writing and producing for a couple of years now, and I'm constantly blown away by what is possible with computer software. I play guitar very well, and keyboard a little, but programs like Cool Edit and Fruity Loops have really allowed me to develop a full band sound. I can't wait to finish the project and have a completed EP under my belt. When you're stuck in an office all day, it's amazing to come home and work on something artsy-fartsy.
Oh, my great friend Neil Hammerschlag
had his birthday the other night, so I thought it would be appropriate to put a picture of him up on the blog. Neil is a marine biologist studying sharks, you should totally check out his site, he's an amazing photographer. The guy on the left is Cory, and I'm the handsome guy in the middle. ;-)
For now, that's it, but hopefully I'll get better at these!
