I like to be as productive as possible. My day, I work in IT in the Boston area and at night I work with a variety of different creative endeavors in the Boston area. My main passion is being the Artistic Director Emeritus of ImprovBoston (www.improvboston.com) but I also work with other local theaters including the ImprovAsylum, ComedySportz Boston and The Longwood Players. When I have a few hours off, I try to fill them up with extra curricular activities like recreational basketball, softball, and football.

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

Here's comedy legend Harold Ramis' advice to young filmmakers

"Identify talented people around you and then instead of going into competition with them, or trying to wipe them out, make alliances, make creative friendships that allow you and your friends to grow together, because someday your friend is going to be sitting across a desk from you running a movie studio." - Harold Ramis 
This advice is not just for the creative fields (although it is superb career advice) - We should apply it to how we interact with everyone.
