We had the good fortune of connecting with Jay Miehli and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jay, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
The reason i pursue an artistic/creative career is because it runs through me. I love and enjoy the challenge writing songs presents to me. When i get everything exactly how i want i feel a moment of ecstasy, followed up by a moment of wow lets do this again but better! There are values of art in everybody its just a matter if we are willing to find out which art values are more keen to us individually. With an artistic career I’m not restricted with my vision, as long as i can think it and organize it correctly in the physical world anything is possible.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets me apart from others in my opinion is my vision. My vision doesn’t just mean what i see, it means everything i imagine coming to life. Working with artists from time to time i see that alot of people arent the same way as me they will settle for less than what they imagined because it still is captured well. For me on the other hand it must be exactly how i envisioned it. I got to where i am today professionally by working hard and a lot of teamwork. None of it was easy i had to plan and keep trying and failing over and over before i even felt a spark of success. The lessons I’ve learned along the way is that people come and go you cant take things to personal. Keep your nose to the grind stone and keep working even when nobody is watching thats when you work 10x harder.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Id take them down to Tijuana and we would hit Hong Kong.
