The MAC 180 Story

     One day I was watching this episode of Seinfeld called, “The Opposite”. There's a scene with the character George Costanza and he’s contemplating his life. He realizes that every decision he’s ever made has failed. In this scene, he’s about to order the same lunch that he's ordered every single time he’s in the café. Then something amazing happens!   He makes a choice to do the opposite of what he’s always done in hopes of achieving something better.

     That was actually a powerful episode for me. Life is about choices and if you’re heading in a direction of no results, it’s up to you to turn 180 degrees and finally make a choice that makes a difference. That episode made me think of my situation. I’ve spent most of my life writing, producing, and performing music for others but this time I decided to do those things for myself. So what does MAC 180 mean? It stands for make a change 180 degrees.

      My heart is to share the love and passion I have for music with the world. The focus of the company is to creatively analyze and anticipate the needs of our clients. Our goal is create an atmosphere where music still matters.
