I’m thankful to have a lot of friends. So many different people with different lives. One thing almost all of us have in common, we love coffee. So every once in a while I’m going to take you along with me on some of our coffee hangs so that you can learn more about me, my friends, and some of the shops we love.
Aaron is one of my closest friends. He’s an animation student at Art Institute Dallas, as well as a free-lance graphic designer. Most of the really cool stuff you stuff you see from me, including show posters and the ONLY LOVE album design, were all done by him. We’re at Mudsmith coffee in the Lower Greenville area of Dallas. Doing some “work” and having some coffee. I asked him to come up with some questions about things he thought people might want to know about me…
AG: What was your favorite cartoon as a kid?
KT: Droopy the Dog…Hands down
AG: What was your favorite snack as a kid?
KT: I was a fiend for graham crackers, conveniently the snack of choice for every preK, Kindergarten, and Sunday school I’ve ever been in
AG: As far as I know, you’re a self taught musician, what inspired you to pursue it?
KT: Well, I was around 13 or so and already playing percussion. I’d always enjoyed guitar and the singer/songwriter type of music that guitar was used in. One day I was just sick of not knowing how to play it, I guess. haha
AG: If you could sum up the past 3 years of your life in a few words, what would it be?
KT: haha “God does rock-bottom really well”
AG: What’s the best advice a fellow musician has ever given you?
KT: Stokley Williams of Mint Condition said, “Don’t be anyone on stage that you wouldn’t want to be off the stage”
AG: what was the best show you’ve ever been to?
KT: Feist at the Palladium in Dallas. Man…So freaking good
AG: You’ve been to a lot of cities, what is it about Dallas that you love?
KT: I’ve been to a lot of great cities that are awesome “big cities” but lack a certain kind of personal connection. In Dallas, so far I haven’t had to sacrifice one for the other. I really appreciate that.
