Colin considers himself an artist above all else, and he enjoys practicing many skills and labors of love. He is a musician, songwriter, an audio engineer and a producer of heavy music. He resides in the California Bay Area and has since 1990. Colin was born in Austin Texas to actor parents in the middle of the 1960′s counter culture revolution, but he was raised primarily in New York City, and then finished school back in Austin. He moved to California as a young adult and stayed for the music culture that he thrived in. In 1996, Colin founded the extreme metal band Vile, releasing 4 albums and touring over 25 countries over a `17 year period. He also took his musical disciplines into the technical aspect of music production and founded Imperial Mastering, a music mixing and mastering studio.
Colin considers himself an autodidact and has always been compelled to broaden his knowledge of himself and his world. When he’s not working on music, he often finds himself studying esoteric and theoretical subjects such as philosophy, theology, law, psychology, biology, physics, ancient civilizations, wisdom traditions, economics, and whatever his higher self may guide him towards.
In 2005, Colin was shocked to find that the story we were told in relation to the September 11th events was not the full truth and he dedicated himself to studying this event and other so called conspiracies which he found were always linked to a darker social phenomenon that he sought to understand. He spent most of his free time from 2005-2009 studying the shadow of western civilization as it plays out in government and corporate crime and corruption, economic malfeasance, disease and other realms of social destruction. He dedicated himself to understanding the top down control structure some refer to as the New World Order.
In 2009, for reasons he only later came to understand, Colin began a 5 year study of real estate related fraud and foreclosure procedure. He became a self taught expert in this area of law and litigation and has over 5000 hours of study into the field including mortgage backed securitization. He now offers personal coaching for those litigating against predatory financial institutions or recovering from the loss of property and self respect that is inherent in foreclosure.
As he came to understand the nature of our social destruction on a deeper level, while he was continually investigating his internal state and seeking personal spiritual and emotional balance, Colin came to understand that the core of our destructiveness was not a certain group or any government policy or external element, but was a function of our current state of consciousness. Only after he was able to realize that his own view of the world was a function of his internal state, his work with then friend and now partner Melissa Mari began.
Beginning in 2012, Colin and Melissa teamed up to continue the personal spiritual work they had been doing alone, and discovered that their connection was a deeply spiritual and alchemical bond which activated a new level of consciousness in them both. Colin experienced many physiological changes in his body, including a week long heart-based Kundalini awakening, and was able to access deep emotional wounds he had been harboring. Together with Melissa, he started a new phase of his life which came on suddenly and intensely and which has produced the work discussed on Living In The Movie.Com and the creation of the up-coming film, V is for Virus.
In addition to his continual study of the dark side of human nature, Colin is coming into his own highest potential as a human being and has stepped into a place of total personal responsibility for his life through the philosophical concept of Life Art as he continues to understand and direct the movie created by the projection of his own internal state. In addition to his work on the production of the film, Colin is writing a book to crystallize the concepts he and Melissa are ‘downloading’ to act as a manual for self creation and healing.
When Melissa Mari looks back on her life’s adventures, she can only see them as Life Art. Her journey reads like a novel with everything from childhood trauma, sex and violence, to cancer and a remarkable healing journey. While her path was wrought with dramatic trials, she always intuitively understood that the events were necessary rites of passage. Through all of it she has remained positive and passionate about her own evolution, and the potential of humanity to awaken its consciousness to a new paradigm in this century. She has remained a life-long seeker of a deeper understanding of the nature of reality.
Melissa lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and grew up in Mill Valley California in the late 60’s and 70’s. She was surrounded by the alternative lifestyles and philosophy of the new age movement that permeated Marin County at that time. She was interested early on in deeper esoteric and spiritual ideas, and this has caused her to lead a life of self study.
Melissa is a recording artist, musician and songwriter and a uniquely compelling performer. She maintains a passion for music and performance art that began in childhood, and has acted as a lead vocalist for numerous musical bands including the metal act Death Under Fire. Besides her work on the film V is for Virus, she is working on a multimedia live performance project which encompasses many of the personal epiphanies being revealed to her. She is also currently working on a comic book which is a fictional account of the work she creates with Colin Davis.
Melissa’s move into the natural healing and health industry was related to her experience of having cervical cancer. She spent a year experimenting with treatments, studying, and trying many different cleansing diets, bodywork, and healing modalities. She succeeded and forced the disease into remission within a year, and has remained cancer free for almost two decades. She began working for Whole Foods Market in the late 90’s and has served in many roles – as a store educator, customer service supervisor and in the whole body supplements and herbs department. She has been certified in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University.
Melissa mentors and coaches others in nutrition, healing, and fitness and has for the past 15 years. She currently continues to evolve her own personal consciousness and to live a life of art. She always enjoys supporting others in finding their own passions, internal flame, and in leading their own divine lives.
