We had the good fortune of connecting with Tyshon Lowe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tyshon, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I’m from South Central, California. My upbringing impacted me in a very positive way. I’ve seen a lot coming from where i come from so i learned from other people’s experiences as much as i learned from my own. Who i am today reflects that with the way i approach my everyday interactions with people. I try to understand that everyone is fighting something on the inside and it’s my duty to be kind and be that light that might spark them to see something great in themselves.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets me apart from others is that i know nothing truly sets us apart. We are all able to do what i do but I’m willing and driven to do it, if that makes sense. I’m not better or different from the next person in the sense of everyone can be creative if that’s what they truly believed for themselves.
I’m most proud of the man that I’ve become by choosing a life in my creative field. I could be at a desk forcing myself to go to a job everyday that i hate but i bet on myself and it continues to pay off as i grow more and more each day.
How i got to where i am today professionally was not an easy task by any means. Constant doubt and failure but that’s what the true success stories are made of. Overcoming challenges daily by standing on faith and having tunnel vision. Knowing that this is what i called to do.
I’ve learned that the journey is inevitable. We can’t take any shortcuts and we have to look fear in the eyes.
I want the world to know that you can make it as long as you trust in yourself. Believe that you can and work hard for the life that you desire.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If i were to be someone’s travel guide while they were here in Los Angeles for a week, i would suggest visiting a few of our beaches. We have some of the most beautiful beaches and amazing weather.
Our museums are very insightful and a great way to learn about a few things you probably didn’t know about previously.
Visiting hollywood might excite some people as they might run into different celebrities.
I enjoy ATV riding, paintballing and sky diving so i can suggest a few places that i frequent
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Man, my whole community deserves a shoutout for real. If it wasn’t for people always referring me to different brands or entities i wouldn’t even be here talking to y’all today. The community of people in which i network with always look out for me by constantly sending people my work and i appreciate that.
