From the Artist: “The spirals I’ve painted are about leaving darkness in order to find light. The spiral represents a time in my life in which I had to leave problems, past issues, unhappiness and fears behind in order to start a better life. It is a slow process, so I had to learn what patience means. A better life it s like a spiral, which takes patience and time to build. We all want things to happen fast for us, immediately if possible, but sometimes you just have to go on and wait patiently for the progress to happen.”
We can all relate to the idea of coming out of the darkness to find oour own light. If we build a spiral of our own, we can get ourselves sturdy again by climbing from the depths to a bright new optimism. Like Badea says, we may have to be patient in order to receive the things we want and need. Climbing an intimidating, lengthly, and spiraling staircase takes patience and breaks.

First and foremost, I love music and writing. Since I composed my first pieces of music and poetry I've been obsessed with creative output. Music and writing are a constant puzzle I want to solve, whether it is a blog piece, recording session artists, short stories, or full length albums. I am the owner and head engineer of Groove: Music Studios. Currently, we offer professional audio mixing and mastering services. I am also the Senior Editor/Staff Writer at The Borfski Press, an independent publishing company that I co-own with my wife, Dagney.
I am currently working full time in music retail at a small business and part time as a professional musician and writer. I love working in a local shop, building customer relationship management skills, and having the opportunity to sell things I love. My expertise include audio production, live sound, music retail, writing/blogging, and publishing. I especially enjoy writing and learning about music gear, specifically vintage pedals. There's something very special and exciting about stomping a pedal's switch or flipping an amp on for the first time.
