We had the good fortune of connecting with MISS AM aka “AM” and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi MISS AM, how do you think about risk?
I think about risk as a new opportunity that may be awaiting me down the road I have no idea about yet. You never know how an opportunity is going to come unless you take a step into the unknown without being fearful of not being the best or the greatest at what you want to accomplish. The way to grow and be great is by doing, so how can you grow if you never take risks where you find yourself in uncomfortable circumstances. Push yourself. LET GO OF FEAR and get going towards accomplishing your goals one baby step at a time and you’ll realize as you go how the things you were once afraid of are now your greatest assets.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What sets me apart from other recording studios/mix engineers is, I am a music publisher first so any song that is recorded/mixed/mastered by me by default is put into my catalog for Film and TV placement. Starting out was not easy building the right relationships but once I networked it was easy to fall into the right projects, plus being a female engineer was a rare thing to witness which helped me stand out and be hired by other female artists who did not want to work with a male engineer.

I would like the world to know they CAN pursue music full time.
It may take some time but there are so many outlets to make a living wage, and more with audio/music production.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my best friend to Joe’s Pizza in Santa Monica and get some slices! Then walk the pier. If Joe’s was closed I’d take them to Carnitas Michoacan on Broadway, it’s open 24/7 and their carne asada fries are fireeeee!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate my Shoutout to God. Without Him no part of this life is possible to deal with or find true joy in the work. With that being said, my church, Faith Community Church in Palmdale has taught me so much about how to truly enjoy this life with peace that surpasses understanding. The music industry can really get you down in some aspects, but by the reminder I am a child of God first, everything else falls into place: the way I behave and operate my business I strive to always be fair. Psalm 112:5
