Living the Dream!
Updated: Jun 6, 2019
What is living the dream? Of course it's different for everyone, but what got me thinking about this statement?
Over the years I have used " I'm Living the Dream" as the answer to when someone would ask me "How's it going?" Often times this would happen in a work setting, and most people would laugh a little, as they thought I was making a joke or being sarcastic... I was not joking or being sarcastic.
The picture in this post is from a video I produced for a launch campaign of Dave Mustaine's signature guitar pick up with Seymour Duncan.
Here is a little back story on this video and what I consider "Living the Dream"
I traveled to Nashville to shoot the interview with Dave at a beautiful recording studio called the West Barn owned by my friend Joe West. I also stood 5 feet away from Dave as I filmed him playing my favorite Megadeth song "Holy Wars".
Back in L.A. when they played the Forum, I was in front of the stage filming Megadeth play "Holy Wars" live.
So as a guitar player (who grew up on metal and still loves it!) an audio engineer who loves being in a beautiful recording studio like the West Barn, a video producer, and marketer, you can see why I feel truly grateful and feel that I am indeed "Living the dream".
Let's face it, not every single minute of life is going to be "Living the Dream" I do sometimes have to drive in L.A. traffic... but I love what I do and encourage others to find, and live their dream.
