I am a multi-disciplined artist and designer with many years of formal training. I have a degree in graphic design and teach computer graphics at a local university. At the moment, I am focusing on multimedia and web development. So I am interested in meeting all creative and design people out there.
I also work as a stagehand, setting up major concerts and theatrical events around town. I work two days a week for the Ten O` Clock News on Fox5. Worked on "America Millenium" , the televised event on New Years Eve 1999. Other events include America`s Most Wanted on Fox, Whitney Houston`s HBO Special, Jeopardy on Tour, Christmas In Washington. David Letterman at the Warner Theater, the Rolling Stones, Lauren Hill, Puffy Combs, Ceine Dion, Luther Vandross, Maxwell, Janet Jackson and many others.
Whenever I get some spare time, I research my family`s roots. I also enjoy recording music for friends, as well as catching a good movie on the Sundance Channnel. So drop by and say hello.
My World by Grover C. Massenburg
In my world, there`s total respect for the creator.
In my world, there`s universal love and peace for everyone.
In my world, there`s no need for anything but fulfillment of life.
In my world, there`s sweet mellow music everywhere
Life is eternal and everyday is a sweet melody.
In my world, there`s no evil for positive vibes rule here
In my world, everything is one...
