  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: When it comes to my own art, I have a pop oriented mind with a passion for genre bending. I Take influence from many styles of music. Regarding a client's, I focus on the subjectivity of the material at hand and then talk through ways to make it set apart from the rest.
