We had the good fortune of connecting with Orcun Saripolat and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Orcun, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Evergreen is a lovely mountain town, and my studio is just a few minutes away from downtown Evergreen. I love hanging out with my clients after our sessions. There are nice small cafes and restaurants along the Bear Creek river. My favorite places are Creekside Cellars winery and Muddy Buck cafe. Murphy’s Mountain Grill is a must try too.
The Elk Meadow park is also close to my studio and it’s one of my favorite hiking and mountain biking parks. When we get stuck on a project in the studio, we take a break, jump on the bikes and hit the trails, and when you get back to the studio, you feel refreshed and ready to create again. Evergreen lake is another great option to hike around. There are great choices for eating and drinking and also outdoor activities in Evergreen and it sometimes hard to choose.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are great music producers, audio engineers and industry leaders who influenced me in my career, but I’d give you two names who inspired me the most; Rick Rubin and Arif Mardin. They could always think out of the box. While most people have been trying to repeat what was already done before many times, they made their ways independently and this actually brought them their success.
