In October of 2016 I spoke with Gabbie Hirsch, a Las Vegas based artist with incredible creativity, insight, and energy.  Our conversation delved into her many artistic ventures, her history, and a bit into the intellectual side of what she does.  It was so much fun speaking with her.

“The play of the interspace of the painting and the interspace of the viewer keeps flipping back and forth… I am fascinated with the physiology of the eye and the functioning and how the neurology of the brain processes images.”

Jones Jazz

Podcast: Episode 4: Jones Jazz 

On August 12th, 2016, I visited with Mike Jones of Jones Jazz.  What an amazing jazz pianist!  I was introduced to Mike Jones through a previous guest on ColorMeLocal, and am thankful for that introduction.  Our conversation will cover Mike’s move to Las Vegas, his journey as a jazz pianist, and a brief history of jazz among other things.  One of his dogs joined us for most of the interview as well so you might notice the noise of paws or hear him in the background.  He was very well behaved and it was fun having that dynamic during the recording.  I really enjoyed my conversation with Mike and I hope you do too!
