This is Brendan Leonard, aka as @semi_rad. He is my dear friend and for the last 7 years he has pretty much carried me on his shoulders. But every once in a while he also picks me up and carries me in his arms. He is one of my greatest teachers, inspirer of good living and creative collaborator. He will probably hate how sappy that sounds, but it’s true, and he likes true things more than pizza itself. Over the years we’ve had many an over caffeinated conversation on life and art and work and finding our paths in this strange beautiful world, and he actually transcribed our most recent conversation into something you can read if you read words. In it we talk about my first entrepreneurial forays mowing lawns for Marty suminki, sharing the darkroom in our basement with a pair of copperheads, and how I built a career and, more to the point, a life around run-on sentences, meaningful moments, and doing what I love with people I care about. (Mom, you can text me and I will send you the interview directly - or there’s a link in my bio) πŸ“· @ashleelangholz
