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!

Things I’ve Written

For those times when people say, “you’ve got to write an article about that!” Read them. Share them. Print them up and put them on your wall (others have).

Part 1: Surprise, Uplift Part 2: Art Part 3: Sports Nobody would have ever looked at me and said, “now there’s someone who’s going to become a great writer someday.” I grew up in Japan. What do you expect? I knew how to communicate in both English and Japanese, but I...

Part 1: Surprise, Uplift Part 2: Art After I hammered home a slam dunk, I fell, landed on my buttocks, and got the wind knocked out of me. I crawled around on the floor for a bit, unable to breathe. My friends assumed I was putting on a show because my motions were...

Part 1: Surprise, Uplift It’s time to rewind. All the way back to when I was born. Because as my mom always says, I was creative from birth. I can still remember watching Mr. Dressup on TV, following along with his drawings and crafts. Even if I didn’t have all the...
