What do you do?
I help give life to creative things that need to be, but sometimes I just make bad ideas happen.
I think I come from a belief that I have no real business interjecting my thoughts and aesthetics into the world, but I do it anyway out of a sheer sense of mischief. I also advocate for others who are driven to be seen/heard but don't have an obvious outlet or reference point.
What should we read?
“How Music Works” by David Byrne. “The Plot to Seize the White House: The Shocking True Story of the Conspiracy to Overthrow FDR” by Jules Archer
