IN HER NEW ALBUM ‘EGO,’ TRISHES NAVIGATES THE COMPLEXITY OF OUR SENSE OF SELF, AND ISN’T AFRAID TO DECLARE THE MANY WAYS IN WHICH IT GETS WARPED IN MODERN SOCIETY. If you asked me to imagine my version of a “perfect” album, it would likely be a fusion of philosophical/psychological pondering, critical sociopolitical commentary, and […]

HARRIS III IS KIIIND OF A BIG DEAL. (See what I did there? 😝) … so I was pretty nervous about interviewing him. Then, when I showed up to his office all prepared with my huge bag of fancy new gear and couldn’t get it to work like it had the night before, I was […]

He’s a “nature-based stoic, and a deeply spiritual pro-science weirdo in the style of John Muir.” I meeeean […]

JONATHAN BERRY IS THE ARCHETYPAL “WORK HARD, PLAY HARD” DUDE. As I’ve gotten to know him over the past 5+ years, I’ve admired his balance of a joyful, lighthearted approach to life, and serious commitment to his family, friends, and work.

Everyone has that one friend who traveled abroad in college and never really came back. Nicole Boriski is that friend for me. And while the selfish part of me would have liked to see more of her over the past decade, she’s been up to some pretty cool shit, and I’m glad her journeys have […]
