On this episode of DLEW, I talk with Alex Crozier, Seattle-based independent artist.
With the endless possibilities that can develop from any creative project, making decisions is often one of the hardest things an artist has to do. Join us on this episode to hear Alex’s decision-making process, along with why being well-spoken is so important, and how to take care of your body.
