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

Hi Tristan, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
The exact same sentiment as Nike; just do it. If there’s a burning passion for it, and the signs are all pointing in that direction, take that risk & create something good and beneficial for the people.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As an artist, I highly believe in quality over quantity, so whenever I release music, it’s all of what my focus has been put into. I’m currently working on an album, along with some pieces of merch that I don’t want to give up too soon. Everything is in the beginning stages of my business. The challenge is being in a market where so many other people can do the same things, so it gets over saturated a lot. But I know with my artistic integrity & attention to detail and quality, I’ll be able to surpass a lot of others.

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?
My favorite spots in the city happen to be outside of the city. I love hanging out in the Valley, but as far as L.A., the best places to go are all around. I’d start my day off with a nice breakfast spot in Highland Park, somewhere off of York Blvd. Then, it’s time to enjoy the city itself. I love going to Santa Monica Beach, the Santa Anita mall to go shopping in Arcadia, and a few parks to go explore & reenergize yourself.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my loving wife, Rashida. Not only is she an amazing wife, mother, friend, & human being, she gives support like no other. She’s supported me in every step of the way while I’m pursuing my dreams. What makes it even better is, she’s an actor, so she understands the sacrifice & dedication it takes to accomplish our goals in the entertainment field.
