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’ve been interviewed a few times.

Here is what others have said about me.

My 3 words for 2020 are Completion, Curation and Synthesize. And, here are my goals.

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!

Productivity in Music – Does it Matter?

“Productivity” feels like such a technical term… Especially when we're talking about something as creative as music. We could just as easily say “getting more done in less time” or “making the best use of our time.” But that still feels a little aimless to me. If the...
