VOGUE-INSPIRED 32 QUESTIONS WITH MERRYN ROBERTS-HUNTLEY
Apr 22nd, 2019
It has been a while since my last feature in the “Artist Interview” column. I don’t line up people to feature regularly. Instead, it seems life has a way of putting me at the right place and right time with the right people that inspire me to feature them. This is what happened when I met AVA J. HOLMES during Portland’s FashioNXT fashion show, and when I ran into AHMED SHIHAB ELDIN while I was in DC for a Tango event…etc.
AHMED SHIHAB ELDIN – EMMY-NOMINATED JOURNALIST
May 2nd, 2018
Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get. Meeting Ahmed Shihab Eldin in DC was just that – an insightful, unique, and fun surprise. My business partner Bassel happened to find out that Ahmed was also in DC while we were there for a Tango event. We decided to reach out to him with no hope of getting a reply. Against all odds, time and travel constrains, and exchanging of wrong numbers, we managed to still meet with Ahmed and had a good time doing so. It was fate. (more…)
AVA J. HOLMES – FASHION SHOW PRODUCER OF FFC
Apr 10th, 2018
I have always enjoyed making friends with people with lots of experience in their field. Those friends often share life stories about how they become established. One common thread I hear: ” When I focus on doing one thing well, opportunities usually arrive.”
ALEX KREBS – RENOWN RENAISSANCE TANGUERO
Dec 13th, 2017
The first time I met Alex Krebs was about 10 years ago. I was searching for an Argentine Tango dance teacher. A Google search quickly turned up Alex and his all-tango dance studio in SE Portland, Tango Berretin, a funky, bohemian space complete with dance shoes glued on the ceiling, a mate gourd collection, and tango artwork. I took lessons, was hooked, and joined and stayed in the community ever since.
Alex is hard to define. He not only does many things, but also does them very successfully. He is a musician and physicist by education, and an Argentine tango teacher by profession. He directs two accomplished bands — a 14-piece Balkan Brass Band, The Krebsic Orkestar, and a tango sextet. He has been featured in the New York Times, OPB, Oregonian and other major media outlets for his craft and also his community building achievements. He has performed with the Oregon Symphony, released 6 tango albums, and has tango instructional apps. Students of his have even gone on to become notable Tango teachers, DJs, and organizers. So who is he?
