Tucson, AZ

“The biggest thing Tucson has offered me is a whole lot of peace and quiet which undoubtedly helps spark creativity. The pace is nice and slow here as well (though people drive like maniacs). The exotic wildlife and vegetation continues to surprise me – a hawk landed in my (very tiny) backyard the other day and I have learned quickly that you have to watch out for wild, blind pigs called Javelinas who travel in packs and can attack you in driveways at any moment. I grew up on Cape Cod originally so the desert feels like a foreign country to me which inspires me daily.” — Nic Pool
