My mother says that the first question I had for anything was: Why?
Why do people do the things that they do, and believe what they believe? Why do some people strive for questions and others for answers? Who are you? What do you value above all else and what can you do to change your world for the better?
These questions really hooked me, to the point where I thought that I wanted to be a Psychiatrist. So I packed my bags, left Boston and headed into the desert to the University of Arizona, to learn, dream and be as far as possible from conventional thinking.
After I graduated in 1995, I flew into the eye of the dot-com cultural revolution in San Francisco. I spent five wild years, building digital brands, creating new systems, launching start-ups and connecting to people with world changing aspirations. As digital became global, I headed to New York City, where I have spent the last fifteen years living in Brooklyn. I love it here. The city is my passion and its limitless cultural possibilities have truly been life changing.
