Walk us through your creative process?

I think it’s changing all the time. I make creativity a priority and apply it to everything I do.

Who are your biggest artistic influences?

Probably my closest friends and collaborators. They inspire more of my artistic expression than anyone else.

What instruments do you play?

Guitar, bass guitar, piano and ukelele

What would you like to work with if you weren’t a musician?

Maybe wood!

Whats one piece of gear you can’t live without? What equipment are you using?

I could live without all of it. I’ll use whatever I’ve got, even if it’s my voice, clapping my hands and stomping my feet. I have collected a hand full of instruments that were built by my friend Gary Zimnicki. Other than that, I have a few toys that help me execute my creative choices! The computer is essential these days…

Tell us something unrelated to music. What are your hobbies?

I love to dance and find myself in a park with a coffee or tea and a book. I also love to support other people’s art when the opportunity arises.

If you could meet one performer/artist who would it be?

Thats a tough one… too tough.

What does the future hold for you as an artist?

Surprises 🙂
