The Occasional Mad Idea

Creating analog experiences in a digital world

Here’s what my team of artists and musicians are making next:

5% Savvy's 80s tribute album


We started a band! 5% Savvy is a trio of genre-bending musicians performing in central Ohio.  Luc is also a solo performer of modern, folk and instrumental music, with a comic sensibility and a wry view of the world.  Click here to read about home recording, songwriting and our next live show.


Tabletop and PC gaming as an exercise in creativity.  Click here for Dungeons and Dragons, Bastion, and more – and don’t forget to catch us live on Twitch!

You may have heard about this team from The Spare Room Project, a curated online resource for creatives pursuing their passion in limited space.  We’ve outgrown our old room and split into two parts: Unit 25, for creative business success, and Scintilla Studio, for our own creative projects.


Scintilla Studio

Scintilla Studio aims to deliver rich creative products and show our followers how we did it, not tell them how they could.


Unit 25 Creative + Consulting

Unit 25 helps entrepreneurs grow their business, even if they aren’t sure what steps to take.  The Unit of skilled designers, writers and coaches can take your business to the next level.
