Michael: I went to a summer camp at Interlochen in Michigan. It was the first time in my life that I was around a high and professional caliber of artists. Getting a compliment from them truly meant something and also forced me for the first time to be critical of myself and my own work. I think there's a time in every artist's life where mutual respect first occurs and that's an unforgettable moment. From then on, all it's about is maintaining that respect and challenging yourself.
