Listen, I know it’s not all about me (unless it’s my birthday – you can’t take that from me) so I want to do my part to ‘share the spotlight’, so to speak. If you’re a fan of my work, chances are you’ll also really dig what these awesome folks are doing. These are people who have inspired me, and whose work I want to share with you – artists, activists, writers, musicians, etc. Some are friends, all are favourites, and you should check them out!
