What do I like about staying here? I like the familiarity, I guess. That’s the biggest thing. It’s been a struggle being in the creative world, playing in bands. To get some recognition for what you’re doing and what you’re putting out there in the world. It’s been a struggle with that aspect of living in Columbus. Other than that, if I wasn’t in the creative world I would love it here. It’s hard to get people to latch on to what you’re selling creatively. Especially in the band world. It’s been tough to get people to come out. This is a football city. For example, when Ohio State’s playing, even Independents’ Day didn’t have a ton of people. There’s great restaurants and night life and things like this festival. The art scene is amazing. That’s what I love about the city, that’s why I’m proud.
I live up in Clintonville, now. Like I said, I’ve lived all over this area. We just moved into that house. I guess it’s been five years now. I’d say at this point, I’ve lived more in the suburbs. I went to high school in Worthington. I lived in Westerville when I was younger. Victorian Village for a while. All over. But Clintonville is more our speed, my wife and I. We’ve got a nice porch to sit on and watch people go by, play music on and that kind of stuff. I ride my bike down to the record shop and stuff like that. We’re creative people living there. It’s got that kind of vibe.
