Where are you from and when did you first show an interest in music?

I am from Palm Beach, Florida. Ever since I could remember, I’ve been posting videos on YouTube since 2006 with my friends – making short skits, funny parody’s ect.

Is your family supportive in your decision to become an artist?

Yes, my stepdad was the first person to get me an official video camera. He was very supportive of my craft. My mom wanted me to go to college and get a degree because she didn’t understand that I didn’t need one to do what I wanted to do. Once I started to make progress and money with my art is when she realize that maybe I didn’t need college.

How are you working to become a not-so starving artist? Do you make music full-time? What’s paying the bills?

Yes I’ve been full time for 5+ years now. Before COVID, music videos were paying the bills and there was an abundance of artists wanting visuals. Now the game has changed – I’m doing reels for artist still but also for corparate companies cause they pay well. I still make time for my passion projects which usually don’t pay the bills but those are my favorite to do.

What connects you to your peers who make similar types of music? What do you think sets you apart?

I love seeing all sorts of different videographer’s coming up in the game and putting their own creative twist on visuals. I learn a lot from the younger generation since they set the trends. I think what sets me apart is just the amount of work and time I’ve put in the industry. A lot of people know the WINCHOZ name and brand and that took years to do.

Describe your music in 3 words.  Now describe yourself in 3 words.

Work: Colorful, captivating, profound
Me: Creative, responsive, fun

What are some of the current projects keeping you busy? How many unfinished works do you have in the vault at this very moment?

One of the projects I have right now is my clothing brand that I recently launched with the name “Winchoz”. I started to make shirts and hoodies with my brand name on it and I’ve been loving the support and process. Seeing my work on a hoodie or shirt is so surreal and people wanting to buy them is even a better feeling. I’m very grateful for everyone that’s supported the clothes journey and it just getting started.

What does “success” look like for you as an artist? Do you have any dream collaborations?

Success to me is inspiring someone just because of something they saw on my page or a music video or even my clothes. That’s what I really do it for, to inspire.

Do you have any habits that help or hinder your progression as an artist? What are some of your biggest challenges?

I think smoking weed helps and hurts my process. Love smoking to get creative and keep that energy flowing but when I overdo it, I could end up just getting too fried.

What do you do when you’re not creating? Do you have a preferred method of escape?

Videos games are my escape when I’m not creating. I love playing Apex, Fort, Valorant, Fifa, Street Fighter, ect. I’m a nerd at heart for sure. You can hit me for the 1v1 in Fifa or Street Fighter.
