Meet pilot. A film making hobbyist since the age of thirteen, Matthew took his passion for the visual arts through years of practice in photography, digital design and video production then fused it with his documentarian talents and embarked the mission of lionizing small business with big passion birthing Lionize Productions, LLC in 2008. Years later, pilot was propagated.
THE NUTSHELL In my graduate year of 1999, I acceded the nickname of 'pilot' which later evolved into the acronym of Profound Insight on Life and Organized Thought. I was very much an intrepid traveler of inner space as well as a traveler of the land living by the shore on the east coast, traveling south and crossing the country west searching externally and internally. I would paint, draw, write, play music, create short films and tenaciously pursue wonderment (D.S. Dal Segno): often using the phrase "Go Further" in drawings and writings. The numbers nine and nineteen became 'angel numbers' of sorts that seemed to serve a guardian purpose for me for many years. The numbers nine and nineteen became synchronistic throughout my day to day life. As a filmmaking hobbyist, I created a compilation of abstract videos as well as a series of writings titled 'Revolution 19'. Concepts in these arts seemed cryptic at the time. I did not seem to have explanations or direct meaning to the numerology involved. As a young artist, I was comfortable with these aspects remaining interpretive. An image I had sketched during that time which I had considered a 'pinnacle view premonition' was D.S. (Dal Segno): the image of a man standing on a cliff side with mountains to his left holding out a crystal ball. Wings were emerging from the man's back. There were symbolic representations of the third eye. Later in life, my wife and I had a daughter very early in our relationship even before I learned my wife’s Birthday to be 1/19. In Feb of 2008 my father passed away spawning the birth of my company, Lionize Productions, LLC. After producing a video eulogy for my late father, I continued creating them for others and their families to embody the lives they lived encompassing relationships and experiences of the person's life. Lionize Productions, LLC later developed the sole mission of lionizing small business with big passion to enable dreamers and provoke prosperous ventures of those setting off to pursue entrepreneurship to live a life fulfilling the soul instead of just the pocket. I was off to having filmmaking become my full time occupation. On 3/6/9, our first daughter was born.

 From 2009 into the next decade, the pursuit of intrepid travels for inner space became much less as I stayed locked in the first three chakras simply grinding to fill the pockets for the hands that kept reaching into them. Soon thereafter, I succeeded in making Lionize Productions, LLC my full time position fulfilling its purpose and missions with the support of my wife . Toward the second half of the 2010 decade, my wife began bringing enlightenment back into my life up to the point of us both attending the SOULTECH GATHERING of 2018. At this event, I attended a workshop dedicated to pursuing your soul purpose as your 'full-time occupation' which was right in my wheelhouse as my current company, Lionize Productions projected these same aspirations to its clients. I, however wanted to bring my creation of Pilot to this workshop and see if I could nourish it's purpose that I had developed in 1999 but drifted away from for nearly two decades. In another workshop, I was introduced to a brilliant pathway breathing meditation modality,”Gamma Wave Healing” by Matthew Ryan. During the practice, we used the image of a crystal ball as a tool to clear the chakra system and strengthen the bond between the heart and third eye chakras. The experience was both physiologically and spiritually awakening to say the least. Only days later, while continuing our trip to Mt. Shasta in the Cascade Range of Northern California, I brought these techniques taught to me by Matthew and used them in brief meditations at locations throughout our trip. The first location was while driving up the road on Mt. Shasta. Intuition had me pull over, exit the car and walk approximately 150 feet down the road from the car. I said nothing to my wife and somewhat felt guided to take the walk to a distinct location. I approached a rock on the cliff side with an extremely beautiful view of mountains to my left and began this short pathway breathing meditation technique. (Al Coda): The image of the sketch I had drawn approximately 19 years prior became vivid in my head. I hadn't seen that sketch in over a decade but this experience rendered a vision of it. Later that day, after touching ground in the town of Weed, CA while taking a photo at a gas station with the mountains in the background, an experience had set my kismet/fate/destiny. A gentleman approached me at the gas station asking if I happened to have piece of cardboard. He was looking to create a sign asking for donations to help him raise money for gas. The gentleman did not ask me for money. He was asking for a canvas to help him (Al Coda): "Go further". "Go Further" was a phrase I used very often in artworks cryptically under the name of 'pilot' in my creative works. Speaking about fuel, he said to me "We only have enough to make it as far as the Pilot" referring to the gas station called Pilot. The gentleman, his setting, circumstance and vehicle had me very much reminiscent of moments in my past as a traveler. After telling him that I did not have cardboard, I returned to my vehicle analyzing the depth of this experience and the words he spoke. I remembered him holding a pen as if he was planning to make his sign with that pen and I was able to go into my luggage where I had an extra large Sharpie marker. I got the marker and gave it to the gentleman to help him make his message bigger and more legible. The progression of my higher self over the recent past had me taking this as a very serendipitous moment. I proceeded from that moment on with rigid discipline to pursue the establishment of 'pilot' and its mission… to create the palatable, legible and cinematic storytelling that would help deliver the lessons, tools and stories of Earth's intrepid travelers to its ascending world.

(Al Coda): The image of the sketch I had drawn approximately 19 years prior became vivid in my head. I hadn't seen that sketch in over a decade but this experience rendered a vision of it. Later that day, after touching ground in the town of Weed, CA while taking a photo at a gas station with the mountains in the background, an experience had set my kismet/fate/destiny. A gentleman approached me at the gas station asking if I happened to have piece of cardboard. He was looking to create a sign asking for donations to help him raise money for gas. The gentleman did not ask me for money. He was asking for a canvas to help him (Al Coda): "Go further". "Go Further" was a phrase I used very often in artworks cryptically under the name of 'pilot' in my creative works. Speaking about fuel, he said to me "We only have enough to make it as far as the Pilot" referring to the gas station called Pilot. The gentleman, his setting, circumstance and vehicle had me very much reminiscent of moments in my past as a traveler. After telling him that I did not have cardboard, I returned to my vehicle analyzing the depth of this experience and the words he spoke. I remembered him holding a pen as if he was planning to make his sign with that pen and I was able to go into my luggage where I had an extra large Sharpie marker. I got the marker and gave it to the gentleman to help him make his message bigger and more legible. The progression of my higher self over the recent past had me taking this as a very serendipitous moment. I proceeded from that moment on with rigid discipline to pursue the establishment of 'pilot' and its mission… to create the palatable, legible and cinematic storytelling that would help deliver the lessons, tools and stories of Earth's intrepid travelers to its ascending world.
