This document is a vessel for artifacts of a former musician, a window into my past, and my refuge since November 9, 2016. It’s not about promoting my music. It is about providing explorable digital archeology for my kids to know their father better, for friends who I’ve lost touch with, or for anyone curious about my struggle with depression, creativity, and getting by in the real world.
Creativity has been a force in my life that has been a blessing and a curse. Obsessing over the creation of art while neglecting other aspects of my life like relationships and financial stability has been a recurring theme. Creativity has lifted me out of depression as much as it has lead me into it. Since my last, worst descent, I have come to terms with it. I am cool with being a father, a mechanical drafter, and a former musician.
