Hello and welcome to my crazy world. Mostly, this is a place where you can learn a LITTLE about me. Feel free to write, say hello and look around. Hopefully, someone gets inspired by something they see or hear that might lead YOU to create your OWN worlds. It’s like falling into a bottomless cavern of imagination, but less spooky with HALF the danger. ; )~
I am so proud of the world’s I have built in the last year. It has been beyond crazy busy….and that is a good thing. I love sharing the stuff I create, not just because it’s $% that I’ve created, but I feel so blessed to have lived some of my dreams to this point….that when I create something new, I hope it shows people that there are MANY paths one can take. It’s really ALL doable. Here’s the PREACHY part….
Life isn’t really always an EASY process. It requires some pretty good thought, planning and like I say: “Halftime adjustments” (if things aren’t going EXACTLY as planned), but if your lucky enough to understand the idea that creating is Imagining meets Constructing….then you can pretty much tackle ANY project or dreams you have. You just gotta focus, plan and get it done. All of us, successful, hard working, wealthy or less better off, are made of the same blood….we all have the capability to do well. Remember, success isn’t always easy…or EVERYONE would be major league successful! There is something truly admirable if you can just make a living out of something you love…and that is quite attainable. You just have to believe and then DO it!
It always starts with “trying”. I don’t mean to sound “preachy”, I just really believe all people can do all things and have tried to live that for myself. I get a tad passionate talking to people on such things. On to other subjects…. So for people just seeing me for the first time or friends from long ago, I’m grateful you have taken a few minutes to check out the stuff I am doing.
Here’s the scoop…. First, for those that know/knew me from my days with Matchbox 20, I have just released my FIRST original music…EVER! It is crazy exciting and so many of you have been HOUNDING me for years asking me when….so now…I get to say….NOW! = )) I hope you enjoy the music…really crazy proud of it and excited to share it with you peeps of Planet Earth.
Let’s see….also, for you first timers or others….I launched my Company called CREATIONVILLE. It is a multi-media content generator. Huh?!! WTH does that mean AG?!! It means we make stuff, we tell stories, and we love making people smile! Go check it out when you have some time and you can see our first Character “Edgar Pingleton” and grab yourself a plush toy! It may be the softest thing on Earth….with the exception of Monroe….my Multi-talented Malti-Poo Pup.
Edgar’s book is about teaching children and adults the differences between just Wishing upon a star…and actually finding a way to fulfill your dream! So that should keep you busy for a while….
