Hey, I’m David Andrew Wiebe and I make things.

My website and writing are simple on purpose. I don’t want people to “miss the point for the writing around it.”

I’m an author, entrepreneur and musician.

I love to create. I love to learn. I love adventure.

I’m living the nomadic life. I currently live in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.

I founded Music Entrepreneur HQ and co-founded The Indie YYC. I’m a staff writer for Music Industry How To.

I’ve been interviewed a few times.

Here is what others have said about me.

My 3 words for 2020 are Completion, Curation and Synthesize.

That’s all I wish to say about myself here, but if you want to go deeper, you can peruse my About page.

Catstar Images does my photos. Thanks!
