Activities in no particular order: actor, singer, songwriter, artist, writer, financial software developer.
Job: employed at a financial markets brokerage firm.
Side-project: writing an algorithmic trading terminal. This may sound like a huge project but I have actually already written all the back-end code – it’s just a case of placing a GUI on top. I will gradually iterate to a stand-alone FinTech App for people to optimise and automate their finances.
Music: recording a cappella versions of powerful old songs. Also putting lyrics to classical music then singing a cappella.
Filming: have added some poems to the list of scenes I am shooting.
I describe creative activities by five broad categories: music, performance art, visual art, writing, ideas.
At present my paid activities can often be included in ideas.
I would include any type of personal presentation as the acting form of performance art.
- Most importantly: Trendline Syncing System (TSS) – an algorithmic trading model.
- First To 7 – strategy board game.
- Also: WIBAMU Easy Accounts – simple accounting system for small businesses.
Yes, many songs are online.
Some pieces are available but the bulk is within unfinished projects – would like to actually finish something substantial.
Yep, lots of recordings.
Yes, years of research and practice – looking to greatly expand this in the future by filming scenes and podcasts.
I know this is a strength but haven’t pursued it yet.
5 creative outlets for me:
- Playing music – vocals, instrumentals, producing;
- Performing – singing, acting, public speaking;
- Writing – music, lyrics, poetry, drama, prose;
- Visual art and design;
- Computer programming.
I’m not interested in comparing levels of ability to others, that’s not the point.
The more these areas cross-over the better.
The more I enjoy doing them, the better.
