WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR OTHER CREATIVE ENDEAVORS? ANYTHING THAT KEEPS YOU FRESH AS A DESIGNER? From a creative standpoint, before getting into design I’ve been into photography for a very long time, from a very young age. My mom taught yearbook in high school and I would always hang out with her after school and hang out in the yearbook room and that’s kind of where I got my first taste of design and I fell in love with photography. HOW DO YOU AND STUDIO MAST HOPE TO IMPROVE MOVING FORWARD? A lot of it comes down to making sure we have time for personal growth. I think having that work-life balance is really key to us and it’s key to being steadfast about that. From a creative standpoint, we really like building long-term relationships with clients. We’re working on stuff for clients that we’ve been working with for years. Having that long-term relationship and friendship with clients is really great and something we strive for. Building those connections are really great for us. Anything we can do to make the world we live in a better place.

Nature and the world around me, from the majesty of mountains to the serenity of a birds song, are uplifting and inspiring every day. The ability of love to transcend all pain and earthly troubles! MOST TREASURED ITEM? Well, little pictures and art from my kids are always treasured.  My Hammond B3 is very important to me, as are all my instruments.

However, my 50th birthday party this past September at the Oriental Theater was a favorite musical experience. So many of my friends from all the different musical chapters of my life played with me that night, and it really hit home how wonderful a life I lead, how amazing my family and musical camaraderie is. WHAT DOES A DAY LOOK LIKE WHEN YOU ARE AWAY AND NOT PERFORMING? If I’m on the road, I’ll be walking, reading, exercising. Maybe find an interesting book store or art gallery. At home, I spend time with my kids as much as possible. Playing and listening is always a part of my days.  BillMckayMusic.com 42
