RICH GET RICHER
What did life look like in July 2018, when Rich Get Richer dropped? I was living downtown in the esteemed Yorkville neighbourhood, working at Ultimate Software as a Software Test Engineer and loving every moment of it, and taking full advantage of the summer. At this point it was official - I had dropped out of Waterloo and moved onto more inspiring things - professionally, and personally.
REAL A$$ HOUSEWIFE
What can we say about Real A$$ Housewife, the song custom-made for RHOT (Toronto) star Kara Alloway? Well, it was a parody of sorts, meant to poke fun at the Housewife stereotypes, and the visuals were done (overdone?) by the usual crew. Crazy few days of filming, I'll say, but wonderful to get the vision out there once again. Reddit, Toronto Life, Post City, Slice, ET Canada, Kara's Blog
