Alex Prieto cut his teeth under Dan Korneff, working with Metalcore’s most elite bands such as The Devil Wears Prada, Motionless In White and Pierce The Veil. He recently transitioned into full time television work on Fox’s Bob’s Burgers.
We’re thrilled to have Alex Prieto on the podcast today to discuss how he went from working in music under greats such as Dan Korneff and Colin Brittain, to working on the hit show, Bob’s Burgers. He walks us through the process for how the show comes together as well as the importance of finding a profession that really works for you and supports your happiness. This is a jam-packed conversation.
“If you’re not getting the same fulfillment that you were from doing something at 30 that you were at 25, that’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with you. Don’t be scared of it. Step back, take a look – what is this saying to me? Pull your head up out of the sand.” – Alex Prieto
