What’s playing on your headphones while you’re creating?
That’s a tough one… It changes depending on the type of project I’m working on, the time of day, the specific task at hand, my mood, etc. I think I cover about every genre of music: bluegrass, rock, hip-hop, gospel, jazz, classical… the list goes on.
Tell us a little about your background and your family.
Art and design have always been at the core of who I am. Ever since I was a young child, my brother, our friends, and I would draw for hours at a time. My family has a history of being makers, builders, creatives, and musicians. My grandfather built railroads from Mexico to Pennsylvania. He was a jokester, and his creativity came out in everyday life, whether it was performing magic tricks or playing flamenco guitar. There are also, painters, seamstresses, crafters, singers, potters, graphic designers, and entrepreneurs in the fam. This type of creativity and work ethic is on both sides of my family, and I see it continuing in our children, as my wife and I are both hard-working creatives.
