Chuck Lapinsky

I am a professional musician and photographer. I have been playing instruments since I was thirteen years old and started doing photography in my late teens. For many years, I traveled with drum sticks in one pocket and a camera around my neck. Over the years, I have played drums and percussion alongside a long list of famous and not so famous bands and musicians. Read more>>

Sierra Weltha

I first started out working as a writer and product photographer for one of the top-ranked cruelty-free beauty blogs, My Beauty Bunny. From there, I went to friends’ music shows and started photographing live performances. I was even fortunate enough to go on West coast tours with artists Keep Your Soul and Goldn. Over the years, I’ve shot weddings, products, headshots, artists, architecture and so much more! I just love bringing my camera places. Read more>>

Bill Thompson

I bought Moosie’s on January 1, 2019. It had a great 4 1/2 year reputation, and I saw no need for a name change or rebranding. Kensington and nearby neighborhoods love it. What sets us apart is our delicious ice cream. It tastes great! Plain and simple. You will remember our ice cream whether you get a cone, cup, shake, malt, float, sundae, or pint. And you will come back! Read more>>

Sandi King

I grew up in San Diego and, after some moving around in my adult years & pursuing a career as a chef in San Francisco, I moved back home to SD 7 years ago to pursue music full time. I hit the ground running with a duo group I was in, playing locally as much as we could and then within a couple months of moving back we had started planning our first tour. Read more>>

Julian and Andrea Bryant

My wife, Andrea, started training to become an eyelash technician while I was in prison. I would always remind her that the mistake I made was only a minor setback and that we would come back stronger than ever and live our dream life. When I was released from prison in the summer of 2016, I got a job in construction within the first month. Read more>>

Haley Comet

I was born at the peak of a full moon and named after a comet. I’ve been fascinated by astrology since I was a young girl, cutting out horoscopes from the newspaper to bring to school and playing “Astro Girlz,” a computer game based around the zodiac signs, all through elementary school. It graduated into a full-blown obsession once I realized how many layers there were to it. Read more>>
