About

Hi. My name is Roman, and I’m an artist.

Up until a year ago, I was composing music non-stop. I’m actually a Classically trained composer, writing in a more neo-Romantic style and adding everything from Heavy Metal to dance music in between.

However, that all changed when I realized that the music industry completely sucks and you’re more likely to meet a unicorn than find another musician with a work ethic. So, I tried my hand at painting and loved every second of it.

From there on out, I painted. I currently have two beautiful young women I work with – Allie and Roxy. They model for me live. I sketch them. Then I paint my sketches.

Musical Influences – Lots. Main ones are Peter Tchaikovsky, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Judas Priest, Randy Rhoads, Ritchie Blackmore, Richard Wagner, Felix Mendelssohn, Frédéric Chopin, and HIM.

Goals – Paint hundreds of beautiful paintings with beautiful women, compose two great symphonies, one ballet, one violin concerto, one serenade for strings, and at least five great albums.

Create a non-profit to buy land for wolves, and also create a scholarship for orchestral musicians and put it in my mother’s name as that was her life goal.

Greatest accomplishment – It has yet to happen.

Biggest fear – Not accomplishing my goals

The man

Favorite drink – Honestly, water or good coffee. On the rare occasions I drink nowadays, I’ll have red wine.

Favorite place to be – Traveling the world

Status – Married

Kids? – One. He just finished serving his country.

Morning or night person? – Night for sure. I’d want to be a vampire if it wasn’t for their garlic problem.

Favorite holiday – Halloween. Even got married on Halloween and one hard rule I live by – I don’t work on either Halloween or my birthday.

Favorite spice – Black pepper. Lots of it

Must read articles – Lots. Whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s health, wealth, or how to be sexier, I’ve written about it. But most of all, my biggest gripe is the average person barely has more culture than your average yak. Thus, I hope people read my article on my favorite pieces of the Romantic era and actually listen to some of those pieces. Also check out some of the artists I mentioned.
