What I'm doing now
Here is a list of the things currently occupying my time.
- ✍️ On this website, I will be writing about art, creativity, philosophy, self-education, mental models, music production, continuous learning, tools for thought and more. The articles will be in categories for easy browsing. Most will know me from my YouTube channel, teaching electronic music production; but this blog is for exploring a more extensive array of my interests.
- 📧 I have an email newsletter which you can sign up to by clicking the 'Subscribe' button in the top right of this page.
- 🎬 I create educational content on Beats by Vanity TV, a YouTube channel that deconstructs the sounds of electronic artists.
- 📀 Alongside the tutorials, I release audio sample libraries and Ableton projects on Samples by Vanity.
- 💬 I started a Discord channel to create a home outside of YouTube for creatives.
- 🎥 I'm working on producing my first online video course, in conjunction with building an online learning academy. I'm aiming to launch both by the end of 2020.
- 🎹 I'm continually working on original music. You can follow me on Soundcloud or Bandcamp to keep updated with my musings.
- 🙏🏼 If you're interested in supporting my work, you can buy me a coffee and aid my caffeine addiction.
Get in Touch
- 📨 Email - If you'd like to talk, I'd love to hear from you. Emailing me is the quickest way to get a response.
- 💬 Discord - If it's a question related to art, creativity or music, I ask that you post it in the Discord, letting others benefit from the discussion. If you'd rather the question not be public, please email me.
- 📚 I read many books, both fiction and non-fiction. My favourite fiction genre is Fantasy, with Sci-fi and Historical being close second and third. Authors such as Scott Lynch, John Gwynne and Brandon Sanderson are among my favourites. Neil Gaiman too. I do my best to track all of my reading activity on Goodreads. If you share my love for reading, please send me any recommendations.
- 🎧 Naturally, I listen to masses of music. My tastes have always been eclectic -from Electronic to Orchestral, Jazz to Heavy Metal, and everything in-between. Electronic is my home base; artists such as Burial, Sorrow and Lorn are but a few of my favourites. I've been listening to Lo-fi Hip Hop recently, perfect for writing too - here's a link to my playlist on Spotify.
