A family friend gave 14 year old Tori a purple journey to help her cope with her feelings after learning her father had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Ironically at that time neither realized purple is the awareness color for pancreatic cancer.  Tori felt her journal offered her a safe place to write about her journey and also used this journal not only to write about her feelings but to also keep track of her dads symptoms, treatments, medications, test results, anything to do with his journey.  Hear how this teenage girl helped co-facilitate a support group for other teenagers who had lost their parent and how her experience led her to where she is today.  Only on OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s only community radio station live streamed from UCI Beall Applied Innovation Center.

Summary:

On this episode of Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way, host Will Crist talked with Alex Kochetkov, the founder of Mubert, a musical platform that generates music with the power of AI. Although Mubert is Alex’s first startup, his determination and experience have helped him grow a successful startup quickly. The idea for Mubert came while Alex was on a run and became frustrated with finding the right music to accompany him. He came up with a solution, gathered a small team, and got to work making better music choices available to himself and others. Throughout the episode, Will and Alex discussed how Mubert works, the short and long term goals for the company, and obstacles that Alex and his team have encountered along the way.

“It helps people just not to think about music. So we should make the music the commodity.” Alex Kochetkov, (9:58)

 

“When you have the opportunity to work with your team in the evening…and to spend some time on these inspiring talks, when you talk not about your product, not about your current situation, but about the future of your product, that’s the most inspiring thing.” Alex Kochetkov, (20:38)

“…Mubert is the product that [content creators] can use. We have free plans, they can use Mubert to create the ideas that inspire them…which will never have these problems with copyrights…and to create something cool.” Alex Kochetkov, (27:33)
