There are two kinds of people: those who are passionate, and those who are curious. (Not really, but let’s pretend for the moment) … I’m the curious type of person. There have certainly been years of searching and yearning for this thing people call “passion” but it doesn’t seem to be there for me. Instead, I was dealt curiosity, and I got it in spades.
I have so many interests and curiosities, I can barely keep track, and I keep dropping some to pick up new ones. There’s nowhere near enough time in the day, or free space in my working memory for everything. Although it can be challenging, it is its own reward to find joy in so many things.
Two heads are better than one, right? I certainly think so. I love to design and create, but even more than that I love to work with others in that pursuit. Each person has their own story with different experiences, a unique perspective, and something to contribute. I enjoy engaging with such imaginative individuals, pooling ideas, and using each other as sounding boards, ultimately creating something greater than just the sum of the parts.
Everything is connected, whether it’s the air we breathe, or the roots that tangle beneath our feet, we are all woven together in the same tapestry. From atoms to cosmic bodies, or the love between two people, bonds are what hold us all together. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
(Once more with practicality) … As an interdisciplinary thinker, I see the connection and intersection of the sometimes seemingly unrelated.
Big Things Are Happening
Recently I launched a clothing brand. Not something I ever expected to happen, but here I am.
What is Unspoken Beta?
Unspoken Beta is a clothing brand for climbers by climbers. Head over to unspokenbeta.com and check out the first batch of shirts!
It is the purpose of Unspoken Beta to strengthen the connections between people in the climbing community through climbing apparel and the words thereon.
Unspoken Beta strives to provide information while keeping it personable, approachable and humorous in order to reach as many climbers as possible. Hoping these playful words help break the ice and make it easier for climbers connect with each other, both in the gym and at the crag.
Unspoken Beta began by composing haiku while walking through the woods, was propelled by the idea that they could be printed on shirts, and only exists now through persistence and the incredible support and enthusiasm from friends, family, and fellow climbers at the gym.
Inherently Curious, and Now Classically Trained
Sometimes it seems like my life is just an aggregation of silly voices. When the opportunity arose to get properly trained in Voice Acting, I had to find a way to make that happen.
Much of life is spent finding one's voice... I've found many over the years and fun ways to utilize them. Voice Acting is simply a way to turn that enjoyment into a career, and I look forward to the work to come.
