The year was 1982 and a curious and creative soul incarnated on Earth to explore, create, and inspire. This is the digital home of artist, designer, author, and musician Jeff Finley.

Music has always been a big part of my life. I’ve been exploring the art and craft of songwriting and music production for almost 20 years now. I started breakdancing to my own beats in 2000 and never looked back. My style is a mix of pop punk, nintendo, and hip hop. In 2007 I took my first drum lesson and played in three punk rock bands since then. Find me on Soundcloud for my latest musical creations.
Jeff Finley has been a lifelong artist and independent thinker. He attended college for animation but began his career doing freelance graphic design and illustration for punk bands and indie clothing companies in 2004. In 2006 he became a partner at the design firm Go Media and went on to unite the design community through blogging, speaking, and creating resources for other creators. He capped off this era by writing the book Thread’s Not Dead: The Designer’s Guide to the Apparel Industry. In 2010 he founded the Weapons of Mass Creation Festival which brought together creatives across the country to network, share, learn, and get inspired with speakers, workshops, galleries, and live music.
But in 2013 Jeff found himself burned out and mired in depression. He started a blog called Maker/Mistaker to express his thoughts and philosophical ideas. He started waking up early every day to focus on healing and overcoming depression, which led to numerous out of body experiences and a spiritual awakening. His life was forever changed.
The following year, one of his shamanic healers told him he was a Starseed. That piqued Jeff’s interest and he dove down the rabbit hole learning all about it. He wrote this post about asking if he was a Starseed and it has attracted other seekers wondering the same thing.
He wrote a book about his journey titled Wake Up which is for sale on Amazon and his website. He later made the decision to leave his company, get a divorce, go on a 43 day cross-country road trip, and move to Austin, TX to follow his heart and pursue new creative projects.
