What I'm doing now

Updated: May 2021

This is a /now page inspired by Derek Sivers, a list of things with which I'm occupied at this point in time:

  • Still living/melting in the Philippines while figuring out my next destination. I moved back here in March 2020 seeking a reboot after several years of “the artist life” in New York City. The move ended up coinciding with the coronavirus pandemic. The change of pace is nice, but I won't last long in this tropical climate...

  • Learning to be a better programmer and chasing a second career in software development. I’m currently in the spring cohort of Co.Lab, working with a product manager and designer to ship a new product in the coming weeks, while staying on the lookout for the next opportunity. In my spare time I also build and maintain NiceFeed (Android).

  • Working on a musical adaptation of Noël Coward’s Hay Fever with lyricist/librettist A.J. Freeman. I took a one-year break from the project and have recently picked it back up. This time we’re collaborating with a talented and experienced director to take this show to the next level.

  • Trying to read and think with more care, and to maintain a public writing habit.

Recent "nows" worth noting

  • Graduated from a web development bootcamp with a whole new set of skills that I'm hoping to put to good use soon.

  • Wrote a new piece (music and text) for an Off-Off-Broadway show called Swell, which premiered virtually in March 2021.
