With a firm belief in the strength of ideas, Alexander Pilon relies heavily on this mantra whether he's writing, connecting with others, or working at Drake Devonshire as Property Ambassador. For this week's #DrakeDreams, we caught up with Alex to talk about his creative process, shared in a couple of his pizza-loving, death-defying stories, and learned of his plans for the future.

Drake AV Club: Mike Reynolds

Posted by Jen McNeely, 1 year, 6 months ago

Drake AV is a collective for emerging video artists. We've already introduced you to Chloe Brouitt, and now want to invite you into the weird and wonderful mind of AV club member, Mike Reynolds. Getting inside his head is a wild trip that may inspire you to go reexamine your collection of dusty VHS tapes, or take a razor and splice them up.
