We had the good fortune of connecting with Neon and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Neon, why did you pursue a creative career?
I pursued an artistic career because I could truly be in control of expressing myself. Working for others comes with its limitations and parameters. Although Structure is needed, working for someone else would mean that I would be obligated to suppress my true personality. My happiness truly exudes through creativity so it has and always will be my main priority.

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.
As an artist and content creator it’s been extremely exhilarating Breaking down my own barriers and rising above my insecurities. Ive maintain a momentum by not giving up and focusing on constantly creating. It hasn’t been easy especially during the quarantine because things have definitely changed. The challenge that I’ve overcome is just keeping myself motivated to create while battling Depression. I’ve learned that I will always be my biggest critic . What I want the world to know about my story is that I never gave up and I will never give up. No matter how long it takes for me to be recognized on a higher level, I do this because I truly enjoy Entertaining others.

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.
One of my favorite things to do is people watch. I like going to an area where people are on the go and just watch them and do voiceovers . I’m always down for a good taco and I think Tito‘s taco of West LA is hands-down the most iconic taco location. I feel like a trip isn’t a trip without a karaoke session. So I say Mudslides on the beach with Tito’s taco and people watching is the perfect setting. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want shout out Fashion designer Paul Redmond. I think in the beginning stages of me transitioning to a singer from the rapper he was very influential at exposing me New ideas in new music. Especially music that wasn’t it so main stream, I think that played a significant role in helping me mold my sound. Also just being around someone that completely exudes creativity no matter what they’re doing also help me become more creatively fluid.
