October, Movember…


Yes, that’s right – I’m complaining about the year going fast because boy, has it flown.
I am trying to keep up with the blog updates here, but it’s been challenging to stick with it as there is a lot going on lately. I’ve some reflections about the recent Faffcon 5, which I’m looking forward to sharing in a future post.

Firstly, I’d like to share that I’m proud to be participating in Movember to raise funds for men’s health. We lost my grandfather to prostate cancer, so it’s something that is close to me, as I’m sure it is for many others. My donations have had a slow start – as of posting we’re at one donation (thanks heaps, Cliff Zellman!), so please chip in and support! Oh and my moustache falls under the insipid and seedy category that is hilariously embarrassing for everyone.

This past month some other cool things have happened, amongst a whole heap of time in the studio. I recently finished my level 1 improv workshop with the very talented Dave Morris. Amongst a bajillion other things, Dave is also part of Paper Street Theatre and they put on a wonderful performance that I also managed to get along to around the the time of Halloween. It was an improv show based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Spooky.

On the 1st of November, the 4th episode of LevelUp Radio (which I co-produce) was released. Jordan, Andy and I had a discussion about Innovation and Iteration and even touched on the Blue Ocean Strategy, which I find fascinating.

Finally and perhaps most significantly, I began meeting with my Stand Up! Group. I’m going to leave discussion about what goes on in our group to another post, for brevity’s sake. However, the goal of this group is achieving razor sharp focus as freelance voiceover artists and entrepreneurs. We sync up via Google Hangouts at 8 a.m. Pacific daily. At this point, let me just say that it has blown my productivity through the roof. Amazing.

I’ll leave it there for now. To finish off, I’d like to share a fun gig I completed recently for Reiwa.com through OzVoxMedia.
