Now

David Andrew WiebeLast Updated: September 15, 2018

Hey, I’m David Andrew Wiebe! Thanks for checking out my “Now” page.

I currently reside in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where I’ve been since 1997. I grew up in Takarazuka, Hyogo, Japan and still value and cherish that experience.

In November 2017, I had the opportunity to go back and visit with old friends. Words simply can’t express how amazing that experience was. Oh, the serendipities… I can’t even get into it all here. Drop me a line if you’d like to know more about that trip.

These days, I love writing and creating, developing websites, making music, public speaking and spending time with my best friend. And, of course, I love traveling too. Honestly, I’m leading a blissful and fulfilling life that was unimaginable only two years ago.

What am I up to these days? Here are a few things you might be interested to know:

Goals

  • Financial freedom. The ability to work on whatever I want to, whenever I want to, and to have location independence.
  • Impact. I want to see the music industry change in several ways. Education programs need to incorporate more curriculums on social media, marketing, and entrepreneurship (make me redundant). Monetization also needs to change. The streaming model is unprofitable for artists. I see enormous potential in the affiliate model. Contracts and agreements need to be honored. I still hear many horror stories of bands that play at a bar and don’t get compensated for their time (in some cases, bar owners attempt to charge them!). I have also experienced this firsthand. We need better governing entities, or more consistent and repeatable live performance contracts.
