Episode 52 - Michael Carini - and CEO of Carini Arts - Part 2

July 17, 2019

Michael Carini is the Acrylic Alchemist. Don’t be afraid to be different…Be afraid to be the same Michael Carini received his artistic training in Los Angeles, studying at Loyola Marymount University while simultaneously serving as an apprentice under respected artists Jane Brucker and Roland Reiss. Graduating at the top of his class in 2006 with honors including the Scholar of Distinction Award in Painting, Carini returned to his hometown in San Diego, where he currently maintains his studio. As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact segmentations of energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time. Michael Carini’s creative visions will play with your senses and illuminate the human condition as he delves into the uncensored depths of his mind and invites you to catch a glimpse of the other side. Transmuting his medium through what he describes as a poetically alchemical process based upon the principles of equivalent exchange (Acrylic Alchemy), it is Carini’s hope that you will completely lose yourself within these labyrinthine experiences, only to discover a new sense of self and emerge reborn. Welcome to the world of “The Boy In The Box”-

Episode 51 - Ivan Rimanic - Co - Owner of De Bartolo Rimanic Design Studio

July 10, 2019

DBRDS is basically Pauly De Bartolo and Ivan Rimanic, both Australians who both got their Bachelor of Architecture degrees at the University of New South Wales and University of Technology in Sydney. We first got to know each other back in 2003 in Sydney, Australia, where both Pauly and myself have worked for the same developer-based architectural firm in Sydney that specialized in modern dynamic architectural designs. In 2006,

Pauly was brought over to San Diego to work for Australian based development firm - Constellation Property Group. When CPG expanded into Austin, Tempe, Las Vegas, I was asked to come to SD to work for CPG in 2007. CPG folded their US operations after the 2008 recession hit, so both Pauly and myself decided to remain in SD and start our own design practice.

Initially, we were called Funkitecture Studio (inspired by Rage Against the Machine’s “Renegades of Funk”. However, that name didn’t go too well with the more “corporate” clients, so in 2011, we simply become who we always were - De Bartolo Rimanic Design Studio.

Meet Lynda Sunshine West, Global Mastermind Coach / Founder of Living Live Inc

Having grown up in a volatile, physically and verbally abusive alcoholic household and marrying someone just like her dad, Lynda’s voice was stifled far too long. It left her feeling suppressed, ignored and judged, which made her shut down.

At the age of 51, she found a life coach who helped her discover that she has value and that it was time for her to raise her voice and speak out loud. In doing so, she was met with praise, recognition and acknowledgment.

That led her to creating a Global Mastermind Program helping women entrepreneurs 2X and 3X their business, speaking on stages, interviewing stars on the red carpet, making tv and podcast appearances, and creating her own internet show, Living Live.

 

Now that she’s discovered her value and shares her voice, she is on a mission to help 1 million female entrepreneurs do the same.

There is someone out there who needs to hear your message. Whether it's getting on stages or interviews, writing a book, or creating your own talk show, Lynda will help you get there.
