Interview 9 – Danny Martinez

I ran into Danny on Instagram a year back. I was impressed by his flair. We chatted and became online friends. I was fascinated with him being both gay AND a wrestler. I mean, that is something you never - if ever - hear about. So this week I would like to introduce you to Danny Martinez, also known as DJ Summers. 1. How do you feel about being known as a gay wrestler? I knew right off the bat I couldn't hide the fact that I'm flamboyant, so I decided to embrace it. at first I was afraid people wouldn't take me seriously because I am gay, but thankfully the locker room and fans embraced it. I've never been seen as a "side show" gimmick either, which I hope I never get booked as that. I always tell people yes, I may be gay but that doesn't determine how I am in the ring. I won't ever try to...

Interview 3 – Stephen Kogon

Back in 2016 I worked on a film called Dance Baby Dance with Stephen Kogon, Beverley Mitchell (7th Heaven), Jim O'Heir (Parks and Recs) and Clare Grant (Robot Chicken, wife of Seth Green). I attended the red carpet premiere: Red Carpet Premiere and took a minute to follow up with Stephen on the process of creating his first feature film. 1. Briefly tell us what the journey with Dance Baby Dance was like. A: Briefly?! What are you trying to say -- I'm a windbag :) Fine, fine, here's briefly. It started with walks on the beach where I would listen to music to clear my head and get story ideas. At the time this story came about I was listening to a lot of old school soul (Stevie Wonder, Sam & Dave) and for some reason I just saw myself tap dancing to them (even though I'd never tap dance...

Interview 1 – Barbara Spoor

So here at Mimosas with Michael, we wanted to do something new and different. We thought it would be neat to include online articles and interviews of people who have fun and exciting ventures going on - and that we could share with our audience. We decided to launch our first interview with Barbara Spoor, who at the age of 25 walked off her job to follow her passion...and started a blog in the process. 1. First off, Iā€™d like to ask what inspired you to start your blog ā€˜I Quit My Job at 25ā€™ Writing has always been a big passion of mine. The week of my 25th birthday, I was going through a really big shift in how I was thinking about the life I was living. It's funny, because there was absolutely nothing wrong with my life coming from a logical stand point. I had a great job with a Major Hol...
