Influences

Traveling to a City Away

Everywhere I’ve been has had an influence on me. Airport connections don’t count.

I’ve visited 8 out of 217 countries. That is 3.69%.

Shows how little I know.

Music

Music is my most powerful influence. I can sit on an airplane for six hours with nothing but an iPod (iPhone?). Here are some of my favorites artists and songs:

  • The 1975 – all of their songs.
  • John Mayer – a majority of his songs
  • Kanye West – Violent Crimes, Wouldn’t Leave, Real Friends, Runaway, Family Business
  • No Rome – Do It Again
  • Lorde – Ribs, A World Alone
  • Porter Robinson – Sea of Voices
  • Chance The Rapper – Summer Friends, Same Drugs, No Problems

Different artists influence me at different times. There’s not enough space to list all of them. So in that case, check my Spotify.
