This is a page summarizing what I'm doing now. Now as in currently. It is updated somewhat regularly with an earnest interest in keeping it current.

What I'm up to now (in no particular order):

  • Working on getting things up to speed with my photography business in Japan and blogging about it over on The Convergence Factor
  • Working toward some specific goals for 2018, both personal and work-related:
    • Qualifying for and getting an artist visa
    • Getting married (already engaged, so I'm partway there)
    • Registering a godo kaisha (think of it as something similar to an LLC in American business terms)
    • Getting a studio space set up for portraiture, product/still life, and printing
      • Revamping my silver gelatin printing skills
      • Printing with alt process methods, such as Palladium and salted paper
    • Hang a solo gallery show of my ongoing personal project centered on pay phones 
    • Finally, actually quit teaching English (it's been a good thing, but getting long in the tooth)
  • Making images for several projects, including a project documenting payphones and telephone booths in the nighttime urban landscape of Tokyo
  • Getting back to writing seriously and redeveloping my blog project Somewhere in Japan
  • Trying to start using Japanese more in everyday life and attempting to pop the English language bubble in which I live
  • Forgetting what I'm doing because I'm not exactly sleeping enough
  • Getting my shit together in any way I can because life moves fast and ain't nobody got time to waste
