The Graduate

Interviews | By on Apr 16th, 2007

What extracurricular activities were you involved in during high school? Was your band one of them?
Before I was playing in bands, I did some martial arts. I’ve actually got a black belt in Isshinryu Karate. I wasn’t any good at any other sports though.

What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strength – amazing hand-eye coordination thanks to years of dedicated video gaming.
Weakness – sore thumbs.

Why did you choose this career?
When I picked up my first guitar at 16, I knew I wanted to play music for the rest of my life. I wouldn’t trade this lifestyle for anything.

How would your professors describe you?
Unmotivated

What did you learn from your summer jobs?
I was a lifeguard, and I learned that that job isn’t as fun as it looks on TV.

Explain a situation in which you had a conflict and how you resolved it. What would you do differently? Why?
No Answer….

What qualifications do you have beyond academics that qualify you to make a successful transition into business?
Touring and running a DIY band for 3 years. It really helped when we started this band, we got a great head start.

Describe your greatest accomplishment.
Playing a sold out crowd (about 2000 people) in Columbus OH.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Still doing this.

Now that those hard questions are out of the way, do you have anything else you would like to say?
Stay in school. Or don’t, things will work out.
