My Bio

Jack of all trades, master of none.


After many years of not keeping up with my DeviantArt profile, I've decided to consolidate my online dealings here and move away from using separate platforms. Where I was trying to keep all these online lives separate before, I've now decided to merge them into one big mashup. You can expect to see me post periodically about my music production, general thoughts and feelings, or just doodles from my sketchbook.


Artistically, I like traditional mediums so even though I do most of my work digitally, I usually try to replicate a more traditional look and feel. I often leave my work unfinished because I like the rough lines and how they look. (And I tend to not have enough time to finish most of my stuff.)


On the music side, I release music under the name Achira. I tend to focus on Downtempo Electronica and Ambient music typically built around piano/keyboard sounds. But, that said, I'll make whatever music makes me happy that day. You can find my work here: https://achira.bandcamp.com/.

Hello Internet, If it wasn't obvious from my recent inactivity, I've been really busy. "Doing what," you (probably didn't) ask? Mostly making music! I finished a project that I've been working on since sometime in 2021 and have scheduled it for release, so it's time to mark your calendars! My newest album, Jellyfish in Space, will be released on August 12th! It features zero jellyfish and a lots of fun. Here's the track listing: 1. Running from the Emptiness 2. It's Okay, Relax, Breathe 3. Are You Trying to Say Something? 4. Beware the Unhappy Birds... 5. Oh, Look, A Sea Turtle 6. Welcome to Space, Cowboy 7. Please Put the Robots Away 8. Be Kind, Please Rewind 9. Say Hi to Death for Me Usually I like to accompany a pending release with notes about the production or what makes this album different from previous albums. Really, the biggest difference in this album from previous releases was the focus on more upbeat tempos and deep bass. And while the music still focuses primarily on

Spring arrived! I know Spring officially started in March but I was still cold then. It took a little longer for me to stop being cold and now the days are longer, the weather is warm, and I'm not cold. That's the real win - I haven't been cold in weeks! Also, still painting and making music but these things take time. Maybe I'll have more to share next month... #stillworkinghard

I've been meaning to write this for a week now and, as it does, time has just passed on by. But, finally, here we are! Where are we? Well, it's album release time. The RPM Challenge has come and gone and for the second time, I've been able to meet the goal I set forth for the month. It can be a stressful process but it feels great to finish music and hit submit. And with that, I've released the EP "Change the Station". Throughout the album, there are hints of radio static, artifacts in the background that can be hard to place, constant changes in patterns, and seemingly conflicted instruments. One song, for example, uses a more metal guitar part along side a shakuhachi flute sound. These oddities are throughout the whole album and that's what I love the most about it! Given that is has been a week since I actually did the release, I can reflect a little bit on it. I've listened to it multiple times over and I'm really happy with it. On a technical level, I've improved my mixing
