I understand the benefits, yet I cringe at the amount of time I waste doing the same thumb exercise over and over again. I decided two months ago that I would give myself a break from social media in order to focus on the projects that truly needed my attention; this blog for example, movingContinue reading “Instaban”
It’s been a while since I fought so hard to hold back tears. The museum was heavily crowded, children kept close to their mothers and couples shuffled along in disbelief. Following a short film of personal testimonies from political figures, we were ushered from the theater and into the belly of the World Trade remembrance.Continue reading “Ground Zero”
I shot a short video while waiting for a train over the weekend. It was an impromptu “I guess I could entertain myself for a while” type of situation.

I have spent four years of my life inContinue reading “INTERVIEWS AND OUTERVIEWS”
The story began in Phoenix, circa 2011. I met a firecracker Mexicana, we’ll call her YADHANIE M-O-D (Mother of Dragons). I came to find out later, that Game of Thrones actually based their famed character Khaleesi off of this woman. Swear.

Looking back on my memories in Capao Redondo, Sao Paulo Brasil! Here I am singing my original song “Synthetic Heartbeat” with a wicked Brazilian body percussion group “The Tucboys,” Bboy Rodstyle and friend.
How is my day going? I just lost five hours of work on the computer; my new and improved resume. It’s really difficult not to completely lose my mind at the moment, but perseverance is truly the only thing that sets success apart from failure. A break outside, then back on the box of knowledge forContinue reading “CURRENTLY”
My first day in New York city, as a “New Yorker” reborn included; -A coffee that I couldn’t allow myself to finish because it made my heart race frighteningly fast when posed with simple tasks, such as climbing the steps of the subway tunnel. -Sitting on a bench in Central Park and observing passerby’s, like theyContinue reading “I’M ITCHING TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT”
Hello there If you are just tuning in or have recently stumbled upon Evar After, thank you for being one of about twelve daily site views that have not come from my personal computer or mobile device!
