Passion Projects & Theme Songs

Passion Projects & Theme Songs is a series in which we profile people’s passion projects and let them explain their work in their own words, with the caveat that they have to pick a theme song for their project. Some of these people would love to turn these into full-time jobs and be the next chapters of their lives, while others are OK keeping these somewhere between hobby and second job. Some of the folks have been at this for years, others only for months. But they all bring a passion to what they do.
