What are some of your other interests? Music. Music. and Music. I have been playing music for a long time. I started on piano when I was 6. Then moved on to jazz trumpet. In 7th grade I moved to guitar in the hopes that it would get me a girlfriend. I was inspired by Marty McFly in Back to the Future pt.1. Unfortunately, it didn't net me a girlfriend, but I have been playing ever since. I played in a bunch of bands, I toured for a bit, saw the country, played awesome venues, and met incredibly creative people. Eventually I realized I would never be able to make a decent living playing only music so I began to start taking pictures of myself and posting them on Tumblr. Somehow that landed me a job in the fashion industry. Haha. Surprisingly, a lot of people who work in the fashion industry got their start by taking photos of themselves. What bands and artists are you listening to this summer? This summer I had Beyonce 4 in heavy rotation. There are so many good tracks on that album. Love On Top is one of the best R&B songs to come out in a long time. Also I have been really digging the album “Livin’, Lovin’, Losin’: Songs of the Louvin Brothers” It is a tribute album performed by the country greats. It actually has one of Johnny Cash’s last recordings before his death. The songs are incredibly sad, but also very beautiful.
