I realized today that I’ve got a lot going on that most people probably don’t know about, so I thought I would outline some of it here.
I’ve been playing drums in a Christian band (along with 2 high school friends) for the last 3 or 4 months. We’re called Unseen, which is based on 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. We’re playing quite frequently right now (about twice a month), and we’re practicing weekly. We’re playing tonight in New Castle at the Hebrews Cafe, and we’re going to be the “house band” for a service called “The Anchor” which starts on the 26th of this month. For more information on Unseen and pictures, you can visit the Unseen page on this website.
- The Anchor
In order to try and reach out to youth and young adults, the church I attend has decided to start a once a month, Saturday evening service called “The Anchor”. I’ve been working with our pastor in planning the service and will be playing music for the service each month with Unseen. The service will be the last Saturday of every month at 7:00 p.m, starting February 26th.
- First United Methodist Church Website
It’s a plan that I’ve talked to the leaders of the church about for the last 3 or 4 years, developing a website for the church. Well, now I’m doing it! I took steps to get things moving along and now it’s full steam ahead. Things are coming along very nicely and it’s one of my best designs yet.

- Promotional Materials for First United Methodist Church
I’ve been working on some marketing materials for the church I attend. Though my design work for the church usually consists of ads for the bulletins (for the youth group and any other group that wants an ad), I’m now expanding into the other areas of the church and developing a brochure for all of the sunday school classes we offer.
- John Spiker dot Com
John Adams, my best friend from high school and former band member in both Caje and Adams & Agee is a record producer in LA and is playing in a group called John Spiker (named for his cousin, not himself). They’re in the process of recording an album and marketing it to execs in Hollywood. As part of their attempt at a career in music, I’m building them a website and doing lots of graphic design craeting marketing materials for them. You can check it out in it’s current form at http://www.johnspiker.com. The site is being developed right now.
- Various Video Projects
In an ongoing pursuit of the desire to make films, I’m working on a couple of minor projects. Most of them are insignificant art films about nothing, but I’m working with a friend on a documentary of some action going down with the Cope Environmental Center this month. More on that later. 🙂
I’ve got a lot going on, but they are all things that I enjoy doing. It’s a great time to be alive.
