Wanna know some fun facts about our team?

Our very own Al-Tariq Graves ( Creative Director) answers our 10 questions :

 

Have you ever met anyone famous?

I don’t give people the power of celebrity…you’re a
human you just work on TV or have a song on the radio.
When they don’t have someone scripting their life they are just as lost and confused as the rest of us.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?

Languages, as many as I could learn. I love culture of all backgrounds and all walks of life. So being able to understand what the next person is trying to say would be a great skill to have.

What was your favorite band 10 years ago?

Tool, I like their music. They are prophetic with lyrics and
have a great understanding of vibrational energy released from musical instruments.

What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before?

I’ve done everything I’ve wanted to do so far. It’s been a good life filled with good times and good people. I would love to continue to travel the world. I love this rock we stand on and would love to see every part of it.

What do you do to turn things around when you’re having a bad day?

Tell myself it’s Ok, this too shall pass. Life is always changing. It flows in peaks and valleys, learning to enjoy the good and the bad is what we are put here to do.

What three words would your friends use to describe you?

Talented, nice and tall.

Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?

No, I express myself outwardly and openly, I hold nothing back. To know me is to know my talents…This is my life work why hide it. I guess lucid dreaming would a hidden talent. I can literally beat up my nightmares.

If you were the only human left on Earth, what would you do?

Draw, enjoy the time to myself. Try to find out what happened to everyone else.
Go where I want do what I want. Live my last days on earth truly free.

What’s one song or artist that you’re embarrassed to admit you like?

Taylor Swift. Then again I love all music some of my favorite songs come from Disney movies and cartoons. Frozen, Moana, beauty and the beast on heavy rotation in my playlist.

If you could only eat one item for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Chicken and rice, from the trucks or stands in New York! It’s so good once it hits the lips…
