What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity? When I am not making music I love to paint, draw, journal, graphic design, box, and hike. Sometimes taking a step back from my projects and doing other activities can be exactly what I need to finish my musical idea. All of my hobbies keep me grounded mentally, physically and creativley. When I am creating art there is a story or feeling behind it which can inspire my writing through my inner thoughts while I am painting, drawing, or working on a graphic design. Staying active through my boxing and hiking is also key for me to keep my mind clear while keeping me on focus. I can workout a lot of inner turmoil and sort out my emotions through other forms of art and keeping a consistent workout regimen.
