It’s been a minute since I’ve blogged. A lot has happened since March, so I’ve got to give you all the updates. I just moved into my new place in the East Village neighborhood here in Chicago (East of the Ukranian Village). I must say that the Wicker Park/Division Street area here is one of the coolest, if not the coolest area I’ve ever lived in. It has the coolest boutiques that you won’t find anywhere else in town, and there are plenty of hip restaurants and hang outs. This area really has a different pulse compared to the other neighborhoods of Chicago.
Summer is finally here and there are a ton of things to do. I just went to the Andersonville Midsomarfest this weekend and it was awesome! I saw a really awesome Brazilian music ensemble called Chicago Samba and they were amazing! It really brought me back to Brazil experiencing their infectious beats and their engaging dancers. Check their website out www.chicagosamba.com. You have got to check them out!
I deejayed for my friend, David A. McKnight’s company launch party in New York City at the end of this last April, and it was fabulous! David’s company, DAMstyle is an image consulting company who’s mission is to help men, women and organizations to project the best image possible through image and lifestyle consulting. Check out DAMstyle’s website at www.damstyle.com (I also designed his website!)
I also deejayed for Youth Technology Corps’ Milwaukee Division fundraiser at the Milwaukee Zoo. YTC is raising money for their project to take a group of Milwaukee students down to Belize for a cultural exchange program involving technology and science. YTC Milwaukee is involved with the Birds Without Borders (Avis Sin Fronteras) project, a multi-year research, conservation and education project coordinated by the Zoological Society of Milwaukee. Expect to hear more updates regarding Youth Technology Corps. (YTC) in the near future.
And last but not least, Fluxcore reinvents itself again now as an online mag contributed to by artists who are immersed and active in the arts, cultural, music, and fashion scenes here in Chicago, with the intention of reaching out to other cutting edge artists who are emerging movers and shakers throughout the world. Check out the new transformation of Fluxcore at www.fluxcore.org
Isn’t all this exciting?!
