Where are you from and how has it shaped you?
Question: Where are you from and how has that shaped you?
Moby: Well, one of the things I am most grateful for is that I did grow up in a creative family. My mom, even though she did menial labor, she was a great painter and a really great musician. My uncle was a photographer, my other uncle was a sculptor, both my aunts are writers, my great-grandmother taught classical composition, my other grandmother was a watercolor painter, so everyone in my family had some sort of creative outlet, so it was just assumed that I would do something creative. Like I really think that my mother and the people in my family would have been very disappointed if I had decided to become a bond trader. So, if anything, even though I grew up in a very conservative suburban environment, I was always encouraged to do creative things.
