What I’m Doing Now

This is a /now page alla Derek Sivers, a list of things with which I’m occupied at this point in time (updated February 2021):

  • I’m living/melting in the Philippines while waiting out the coronavirus situation. I moved back here in March 2020, seeking a reboot after several years of “the artist life” in New York. The move ended up coinciding with the pandemic. I don’t plan on being here forever (the tropical climate just doesn’t do it for me), but I’m looking to enjoy not dealing with the US immigration system for as long as possible.
  • I’ve decided to become very good at programming. I’m building apps and learning whatever I can get my hands on. Some recent interests: native Android development, Flutter, data analysis with Python. In the evenings I attend a web development course—it’s all a lot of fun.
  • I’m trying to read and think with more care and to maintain a writing habit, both on this site and in private.

Recent “nows” worth noting

  • I wrote a new piece (music and text) for an Off-Off-Broadway show called Swell, to premiere virtually in March 2021.
