Your host, Dennis Dalelio, introduces the podcast to the tune of Jai Agnish's music.
Dennis is a visual artist and high school (documentary for social change minded) photo educator who lives and teaches in Northern NJ. His home studio is in Highland Lakes, NJ. There, he and his wife, Kitch (a.k.a Kristin, a.k.a Kitchen,) have lived as a dynamic duo making and teaching art and raising their 5 kids, a dog, and a bunny. True to their Catholic roots, they make an effort to balance and teach their kids to live a modern life with their souls intact; by being part of contemporary culture, but also tapping into the transcendence and wisdom of faith. With that comes video game breaks to do family prayer time and finding time to engage in the ancient practice of creating visual art exploring the themes of faith and family life amidst the sounds of squeaky toys, laughter, karaoke, and lots of superhero movies. All of the ambience heard in the background of this podcast are evidence of that life as Dalelio steals some hours to create these recordings. His guests on the show range from the creatives he has taught, to the teachers, mentors, family, friends, and artists he and Kitch have met along the way of life... or have just admired from afar. These people have encouraged them to make a go at having it all- a life of making and teaching art and raising a family that has everything it needs to survive. The recording of these conversations comes from a hope to encourage and appreciate creative and passion driven people and to create a legacy of media that is about living honestly and sharing stories and insights from that life with everyone else out there just living life, but trying to do so... in a creative way.
