Living in Los Angeles is somewhat overhyped from time to time, but the creative community is very much something I embrace in this city. There is a never-dying spirit to pursue creativity, regardless of age or experience. Artists enjoy collaborating with other artists, and you're not met with skepticism for chasing what others might call a "pipe dream".

Beyond gaining a modicum of exposure for myself, it opened me up to connecting with other creatives out there. Now I have added to my reservoir of potential creatives to collaborate with and interview, and for that, I'm very thankful.
