I would like to emphasize on the fact that as director of operations, I never took for granted the opportunities I've had to spearhead projects involving persons of high interest. I am the first one to admit that without the cooperation of individuals many of my projects would not have nearly generated the help for countless nonprofit organizations. I want to thank all of them for taking the time and interest in making a difference. As an individual, I always stood by my motto...
If a man stands for nothing, he will fall for anything.
What can be said about a dream? That is the question. I believe the answer is found within each and every one of us. As humans, we all started at one point in our lives, watching the parade go by. As life goes by, some of us started asking ourselves...Why can't I join in? Others visualize themselves as part of it till the day they die. Many others try to control it without being part of it! But for the few who know that they can't be part or control it for whatever reason, find a way to learn from it! Move on and produce their own parade. This will not come easy or without repeated faillures. This will not come cheap or swiftly but years in the making. And you can bet your bottom dollar that...This will not come without mockery from friends, family even spouses and the closest ones you know. For those who know me, also know that I am very qualified to tell you that, for they have all witnessed my last four decades of my life's parade in an attempt to march at the beat of countless drums to my dreams. If there is anything I can tell those who know deep inside that they have what it takes and will stop at nothing to see it then...
The key element is and will always be patience and perseverance.
The president and I invite all artists regardless of their theme, style or medium, willing to follow their dreams and willing to apply the advice given to submit a request for review of your art to our A&R division by filling the form below. If you believe in your talent and willing to be published on an international scale, then we are willing to take a look at it.
I have included below but a few of my references, which did not come easy, quick, without failures, mockery, and countless white nights of perseverance. They say that true success is made of 5% Inspiration and 95% Perspiration... In my life's parade....
I think the 95% is by far under rated!

For years I have dedicated my life to try and make a difference. I have spearheaded countless projects and earned a few letters of appreciation. Until now, I've always kept them in an old blue folder, and never posted or boasted about them. However, everyone around me for years always nagged me and said "Why don't you frame them or post them" Well I really didn’t want to because truth be known...My journey is an ongoing march yet to be completed. However, for the ones who need to know who I am and my credentials, I've decided to post some of them. The following is but a few of my endeavors.
I want to point out that although every project I've launched and will in the future launch…will never be sufficient to satisfy the level of help that I would have liked to see... BUT NONE OF THEM WERE FAILURES!
SORRY GUYS...IT'S IN FRENCH! BUT THIS MAYOR IN MONTREAL PRESENTED ME WITH THIS OVER 30 YEARS AGO!
DURING A MAJOR ARTIST AWARD, I LAUNCHED THIS ARTIST CAREER. UNFORTUNATELY, THE ART GALLERY HAD TO SHUT DOWN DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. NEVERTHELESS, I BELIEVE THAT THIS ARTIST'S CAREER WILL MOVE FORWARD SOON.

A FINAL NOTE. AS DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS I BRING YEARS OF EXPERIENCE PAID FOR BY YEARS OF DEDICATION, DILIGENCE, HARD WORK DRAWN FROM YEARS OF UNCONPRIMISING GOALS SET IN MOTION. HAVING STATED THE ABOVE, I WOULD AGAIN EMPHASIZE ON THE FACT THAT SUCCESS RATE WILL BE DETERMINED BY FOLLOWING… A VISION, A PLAN, ACTIVATING THE PLAN AND ABOVE ALL…
TEAM WORK BY ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN ANY PROJECT.
