Michele Matsumoto


My name is Michele from the state of Arizona, U.S.A. I am a 36 year old wife and stay at home mom to two little kids. My main hobby is sewing garments and I recently enrolled myself back to my old community college where I am taking up pattern making.

What influence does music have in your life as a creative?:

I notice I listen to mainly pop, dance, and club chill music when I am being creative. I need uplifting, powerful, and energetic music. It keeps my mind space in a positive place. If I am in a positive and happy mood I can push myself to think outside the box. Also, since I am multicultural (Japanese/Mexican) that also grew up in a very diverse community, I did have a wide range of influences to my taste in music.

I love a good powerful and uplifting song. You can definitely feel a strong woman vibe to it.
