From launching a new podcast & Discord community to experimenting with generative AI, join me on a journey through my latest projects. Get an inside view of collaborations with fellow creatives and the dreams I’m working to realize.
The world is opening up and things are really starting to take off fast all around us.
People are travelling again and getting together in person … and the AI renaissance has just begun. In an effort to keep in better touch with my friends, family and colleagues I’ve been putting some infrastructure like this newsletter in place to help keep me organized and in close touch with my friends, family and colleagues.
Thanks for your time and attention and checking what I’m up to. Hopefully you walk away feeling inspired and having learned a thing or two.
Hugs & highfives,
