Who’s that Girl?
Where did the name Moxy come from?
First Came ROXY:
Many moons ago, too many than I care to remember I wanted to learn the guitar… again. I bought a guitar, had a tinker and decided that I really needed the discipline from a tutor. My tutor then said “Electric or Acoustic”. I never considered electric and thought that would be far more exciting and said “Electric” and he replied “Watch out Rock Chick coming through”, to which I replied “Rock Chicken” …(being of a slightly older generation) which was then shortened to “Rock C”….. hence the “Roxy”.
So FOXY? Guitar hanging on the wall gathering dust, I started working with a person who was unable to produce an “R” so I became “Foxy”. I really didn’t feel like a Foxy, but it was fun at the time.
Now we are getting there: MOXY I never felt like a Foxy, so when I started a long term photography contract, I was told that I would be designated a nickname unless I gave them one right away. So here we are, many years down the line. “Moxy“…. and before you ask the nickname I would have been given was “David”. Thank goodness it never came to that. No disrespect to all the “Davids” out there, it is just not for me.
