Limitless Reflection Whomp Bot Gear

Creating My Future

I’ve been busy.

I’ve been using that sentence as an excuse. An excuse to not write, read, work out, eat correctly, create websites, update my portfolio, design new art, create new costumes, and an unending list of other important things.

That stops now. It’s time to start living up to the title of this page, the title of my business, and my motto. Capacity and Desire. I have grand desires. I have the capacity to manifest those desires. I have the ability to increase my capacity and reach my desires.

It’s time to switch from a person who consumes (Media, Books, Blogs, News, Stories, Pictures, Performances, Sounds, etc), to a person who creates. It’s time to create.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the things that I’m doing to make this happen:

Limitless Reflection Whomp Bot GearMy Limitless Reflection work is in full creation mode. I’ve designed some amazing new sound reactive, remote controlled gear to use in my performances. You can see some of it over on the Limitless Reflection site. I’ll have some of these designs and creations up for sale on my new Etsy page by the end of the week. I’ve also been training daily for future performances. The goal is to take the Limitless Project to a whole new level by the end of the year.

My website creation and design skills are getting better daily. Check out my work on Wine World, Limitless Reflection, and the Capacity and Desire Business sites. I’ve created many of the logos, pictures, page layouts, and designs on these sites. I have a few more sites that are in mid-creation mode right now. They should be done by the end of the week. The goal is to take them and use them to showcase my website design portfolio. I’m going to try and grab some freelance WordPress Website creation and design jobs.

I’ve been writing daily. For two weeks, I’ve been writing for up to an hour before I go to bed. It started off with a goal to create a budget for the next 7 months. I’m happy to report that I’ve stayed on budget and increased my production to reach my goals. It’s a good feeling.

I’m genuinely proud of my work at my current day job. I’ve finally managed to get the site looking close to the way that I want it. It’s running faster, people have commented that it looks better, and we’re generating relevant and valuable content daily. It’s something that I’ve been trying to make happen for a while. Now that we’ve got it headed in the right direction, it’s on me to keep it going that way. Combine the site with the email that I send out to 25,000 2 times a week, and I’m genuinely excited to say that I’m seeing successes in my day job.

I’m stepping up my social media game. I post daily on Instagram (@Limitless_Reflection), connect with at least one person a day on LinkedIn, post daily on the Capacity and Desire Facebook Page, post daily to the Capacity and Desire Twitter account, and I’m back on Pinterest. I read quite a few business blogs and performance art blogs daily.

The next big step is to create, create, create. I’m going to be posting blogs and posts on both the Capacity and Desire site and the Limitless Reflection sites. At a minimum, you’ll see at least one blog a week on both of those sites. The goal will be to have at least 2 posts on Limitless and 3 on C+D weekly.

I’m inspired. I’m pumped. I’m capable. It’s go time!

So Much to Do!

Ah ah! It’s been a while. Things have been quite interesting over the past few months. I’ve been sorting some things out and have been keeping busy.

USC Events Resolution NYE Capacity and Desire and Super Geek LeagueMy performance life has been wonderfully amazing of late. I performed with Super Geek League on New Years Eve as the Ice King. Indiyana Rae Von was the Ice Queen. We ran around together rocking dance battles on stilts and taking pictures with the crowd. I really love EDM Bass fans. They’re just about the happiest people on the planet. It’s really fun when a bunch of them are running around your stilts/trying to climb you to ask how you happened to get such an awesome job.

Mid-February, I took off to perform in Denver with the Unicorns, Whomp Truck, the Fusion Factory and see my best friend perform in Bohemia. Performing with the Unicorns is always a treat. Bohemia stole the weekend with the best show I’ve seen in Denver. The whole weekend was a whirlwind of stilting, acro-yoga, acro-fire, tumbling, aerial, fire dancing, costumes, and friends. While I had a blast in Denver, I’m bummed I missed out on a Super Geek League show while I was away.

I have the beginnings of a new costume I’m calling Whomp Bot 1.0. I’m working on lighting costume design for this one and I’m looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

My aerial skills are finally rounding out and I definitely should be able to perform with them by June.

There’s so much to write about! I’ll break this down into a few posts and start getting pictures up in the meantime.

Coming up:

More to be announced with Bassdrop, SGL, Apogaea, and more!

Performing in a New City

Seattle

Two weeks ago, I moved to Seattle. Things out here have been extremely interesting and fast paced. Everything is different and everything is similar.

It’s so green out here! I come from Colorado, a very dry and desert-like place. Colorado has amazing mountains, but very little water in comparison to Seattle. Out here, things are green year-round and right now, everything is starting to bloom.

There’s so much water out here! Every time I go over, under, across, and see a bridge, I say one of three things: Wow, Pretty, or Water! Right after that it’s usually: Look at the boats!!! It’s going to be a while before I get over the visual stimulation of this city.

The bus system in Seattle is very functional. I’m getting used to keeping a few dollars on me to be able to take the bus instead of taking my car. That being said, I’m still very happy to have a car in Seattle. It gives me the freedom to move around as I see fit.

The Job

I didn’t get the job that I was going for at SEOmoz, which is quite a bummer. Their lack of communication after the interview process is quite annoying, but other than that, it was a really fun and intense interview process. I’m slamming out the applications daily now. Amazon, Microsoft, and small to medium sized businesses, I’m applying everywhere for marketing, internet marketing, SEO, and administrative assistant positions.

I’ve decided to also try and get my own business up and running. I will be building websites for small to medium businesses using the WordPress platform. I will then maintain these websites and do freelance SEO, Social Media Marketing, and Inbound Marketing for new clients. I’m getting my portfolio up and running and I plan to announce the new business over on http://www.capacityanddesire.com/web/. I will also be doing an online fundraiser to get my new business off the ground. Please check back this Thursday for more information!

C+D Performance

I’ve been performing with New Vision Dance company for two weeks now. We have a performance coming up on May 5th and 6th. I’ll be posting about the show later. It’s been fun working with NVDC. We’ve already done a photo shoot and finished up choreography on one piece for the show.

Fire dancing is a blast out here in Seattle. There’s a really big community of fire performers out here. I’m working with NW Fire Conclave for the Burn as their Assistant Shin. We’re working on some very fun choreography and fire costumes. New choreography is leading me to learn new skills and is pushing me to develop myself as a performer.

I’m looking into getting a performance troupe going. This is a long-term project though and I’m definitely going to have to take the time to start developing costumes.

Now that I’ve finally settled in, I plan on getting back to posting 2 to 3 times a week from now on. As always, thank you for reading and please share Capacity and Desire with your friends!

In Progress: Working on Articles
