The importance of music when it comes to my creative process is integral. From preliminary concepting and sketching, all the way to getting pumped up for a pitch – music feeds my creativity and pushes me to perform to the best of my abilities.
A passion for music was instilled in me from a very young age. Between my dad being a DJ, having music constantly playing in my house, and being in several bands over the years, my relationship with music has been a strong driving force in my life. I not only rely on music to push me creatively, but it is also very therapeutic. Usually if I feel stressed, have a lot on my mind, or am even suffering from a headache, a few hours spent playing or listening to music gets me back to a calm, relaxed state.
I could go on and on about music all day, but instead I will take this opportunity to offer up a shortlist of music on my current daily rotation. Please enjoy.
