Hello! My name is Kurt, and I’m an entrepreneur that is addicted to creating. Whether i’m making video games, doing Parkour, or guiding a social interaction, I am infatuated with the underlying process of self-expression, creativity, and discovery. I also think a lot (probably too much).
Creativity, Discovery, and Life.
Creativity is a fundamental aspect of my identity. It is an allowance of innovation, experimentation, and intuition that extends beyond paper and pencil. It allows me to experience and discover myself rather than present or define myself. By embracing creativity, life becomes a giant creative endeavor full of surprises.
During my sophomore year in College, I decided enough was a enough. I needed to address the fear holding me back from simply letting go. This quote sums it up quite well:
I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few. -Brene Brown
After that year I vowed to allow myself to live life how I want. What exactly that looks like, I have no idea. But that’s the best part of it all; I can’t wait to find out!
Diving In: 8 Months of Self Discovery
I started by removing all senses of “obligation”. Both literally and mentally. I took the semester off of school, and started working for myself as a freelancer. My lack of “obligation” resulted in a radical allowance for different avenues of action and thought. Already I have noticed life become more comfortable, enjoyable, and invigorating.
My blog will provide insight into my thoughts, experiences, and expressions as life unfolds. At a minimum you can learn a few things, or get a laugh here and there. But ultimately, I hope that my blog can be a source of creative encouragement. I hope it can help us recognize that what is innovative was also a deviation. And I hope it can help tear down the the limits on life perspectives and definitions in order to truly tap into our creative potentials.
The blog will also be sprinkled with tutorials, art work, and all kinds of stuff. So in short, subscribe if you:
