The Importance of Finding a Mentor with Kurt Fick

That’s why this conversation with Kurt Fick surprised me. Here was someone who from a very early age reached out to others who knew more than him, others who had experienced what he hoped to experience. In fact, I think that his reliance on finding and learning from his mentors sped up his process of getting to where he wants to be. Doing anything whether it be photography, filmmaking, or even singing is really really difficult. The ins and outs of each discipline could take years and years to master. The hack to speeding up that process, although it might not feel like a shortcut, is finding mentors.

Imagine my surprise when I reconnected with Dave Visaya. Turns out that he was making a living and growing a business through podcasting.

Connecting with current artists is a by-product of producing Zerothreetwo Conversations. It’s refreshing to hear the perspective of artists who are currently playing. I don’t want to fall into the trap of featuring people who are my contemporaries. The ability to learn from the new crop of musicians and artists is valuable.

With that in mind, that’s how I approached this interview with Luigi Miguel Balazo. Luigi is half of the music group called Sepia Times, and is currently promoting his new music project called The Sellout Club. Amongst musical circles, they’ve been making waves and I jumped at the opportunity to talk music with him.

From Conducting a Jeepney to Tattooing Celebrities with Boots Brandon Pajaganas of Redeemed Tattoo

I first met Boots Brandon Pajaganas years ago. He used to invite our band, Rescue a Hero, to play music for skate events. Back in the day, I remember talking to Boots about his experience skating around Cebu. It’s been a while since I last saw Boots, but I was updated on his goingons through Facebook and Instagram.

In the past four years, Boots made a name for himself as a tattoo artist. I remember seeing posts of him winning tattoo competitions, getting tons of clients, and finally tattooing celebrities like Angelica Panganiban and Kitchie Nadal.
