WHAT IS USUALLY PLAYING IN YOUR HEADPHONES?
My tastes are rather broad as a musician, but I almost always need a guitar or drums as a base. It’s virtually always instrumental when I’m working with extra love to anything with a cello. After work? Some favourites outside work hours are Modest Mouse, 80s and early 90s grunge, modern folk, and singer-songwriters (check out Dan Mangan).
WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?
I wanted to be an artist. The way imagery, sound, colour, or even stroke style can evoke emotion and tell a story has whisked me away since I was young. I believe that art has the power to heal and communicate in a fundamental way.
WHAT ARE YOU HAPPIEST DOING, WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING?
I unwind by drawing and illustrating — it’s part of how I distill and explore my day. If it’s not drawing, then it’s cooking a great meal or letting loose at band practice.
WHAT IS YOUR HIDDEN TALENT?
I can virtually always take “there’s no food in the house” and turn it into “that was a delicious feast.”
WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTES?
“We move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands. We are born makers, and creativity is the ultimate act of integration — it is how we fold our experiences into our being.” – Brene Brown, Rising Strong
Change and growth are brought to life through exploration. It’s something that ties strongly into shaping culture through content; in the act of creating, we are transforming and integrating new ideas and modalities. As we get older, we still need to play — it’s through those spaces we sharpen our ability to analyze.
