Tell me lies

The Short Long of It

A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others. 

- Ayn Rand

​​​   It's come up a few hundred times that I should chronicle the happenings in my life. Whether it be the crazy days of the music business or the more serious happenings of getting stampeded by a herd of buffalo, drinking with a King and Queen or the coupling of peanut butter and Christian Louboutin heels or just simplifying complexities, including ridding yourself of those holding you back and making your life uncomfortable.

   Some of the happenings more personal than others, so over the top and crazy, but true, but while I have a million tales to tell and often do share, one thing is for sure, it’s birthed the beginning of four books. Stay tuned.

   Hilarious, yet serious unabridged accounts of my experiences with people as briefed on the page, Experiences. It's a read that promises to keep you hooked because you can't make this shit up.


   Sophistication simplified; a pragmatic explanation of how we as people complicate the simple things in life. Through experience and five years of living in Europe, I share how by changing my relationship with objects, clutter, money and people, I now live a life of clarity and truth.  I bring up the word truth, because it’s one of the most abused words in the English language not mention one of the biggest pills to swallow. 

   Wouldn’t it be nice to know what you want, instead of what you don’t want? Or how to rid your life of toxic people and be okay with it? Or how to rid your life of hypocrisy and double standards and why it’s better to shun the bait than struggle the snare? Or how the word no, turns your life into yes? This is a short, simple look at leading a life worth liberating. OR, forget about the heady stuff I mentioned and UnFuck your life for the sake of enjoying it, worry free, but not before I piss you off a little.


   Contrary to the title, this is a recount of a gifted person's journey through life. The highs, the lows, their views of the world, their challenges and how perspective can be everything and nothing at all. It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s provocative. While parts will piss you off, it may also pose loopholes and have you questioning your own reasoning and existence. This is the celebration of the journey, not the end result. It’s a very determined looked at the struggle of being present and remaining there through the laughs, the tears and the frustrations, all neatly wrapped in a way which explains the title.


A personal story of loving the laughs, the lies, and the sociopath.
