Thanks to my friend Jim for inviting me to be a part of his series, the Kinship Cafe. We had a great chat about all kinds of topics I find fascinating, plus I played a few tunes. Watch the full show below, and don't forget to check out the show's Patreon page if you'd like to support his series further!
I'm super excited to share the latest project I was lucky enough to be a part of called #BlindLocation, created by my friend and mega-talented photographer Sydney Prather.
For each shoot/episode of this project, the model will blindly select a location on the map for the shoot to take place, supporting Sydney's theory that you can spontaneously draw creative inspiration from anywhere!
My favorite thing about the way Sydney works is that she has a very clear vision in mind for each shoot, even without knowing the location. For this series, she sent me a mood board with some fall colors/inspiration so I knew what kind of vibe we would be going for ahead of time. Organization and preparation is one of the things that keeps my raging anxiety at bay, so go figure that this is a quality I'd admire in another creative!
Please follow the link to check out our shoot, and don't forget to check out all the other shoots in the series - her work is SO impressive.

Thanks to Gary Lee for inviting me to chat and perform on his new podcast Music Spotlight in San Diego.

Listen here!
