As an LA native and going to many concerts at a young age, music has always been a huge part of Heather Boyd's life. She currently works at INgrooves as their music licensing manager, pitching their global roster of artists to Music Supervisors, Producers, Directors, and Marketing companies for use within commercials, television shows, films, and video games. Heather was exposed to the unncessary pain in which humans inflict on animals very early on, and she hasn't forgotten it since.
“When I was nine years old, my 4th grade teacher decided (without warning or parental consent) that my class was going to dissect baby animals and animal parts as a science project. She was very unprepared and gave us safety scissors as our only tool. It wasn’t long before my friend and I completely freaked out and ran to the nurse's office to call our parents. After that, I decided I no longer wanted to eat animals.” - Heather

Best Friends Animal Society
is a shelter with locations all over the nation, which operates pet adoption centers, spay/neuter clinics, and no-kill initiatives, as well as a No More Homeless Pets Network of animal rescue groups in every corner of the nation. They have two locations in LA where I’ll be volunteering next week. Also, shout out to Sage in Echo Park
for their amazing menu and for letting us have a photoshoot in their restaurant.
I’m always so excited for what’s next from Foreign Family Collective
- a small indie label curated by the duo behind ODESZA. Really cool releases from young, up-and-coming electronic musicians including Jai Wolf, Louis Futon, and Big Wild. We’ve been working with them from inception and we’ve had great success in the commercial space and landed commercials with Royal Caribbean, Izze, DSW and Google.
