Everything In Slow Motion

Interview : Everything In Slow Motion

I was lucky enough to have the privilege of interviewing Shane Ochsner, the man behind Everything In Slow Motion.

Maybe it’s because we’re both living in North Dakota, but probably because he is the most genuine, humble person I’ve ever…
