The Fun Stuff
5 Random things about me:
- I'm a 3rd generation native New Yorker (I knooooooow! I'm like a unicorn!!!)
- I'm in love with and fascinated by possibility. I believe everything is possible and know the key to unlocking everything possible is asking HOW.
- My mom is my absolute best friend, reliable sounding board, ethics maintenance technician and source of never ending, snort-inducing laughter.
- I can easily and happily fall down the Wikipedia hole for hours.
- Yes, there's a song for everything. And for everything else there's really bad ad-libbing.
1) I've literally been advising since I was 16 years old. Of course, then I had no idea it was a job let alone a career choice, but people and businesses let me do it (probably because it was free) and implemented many of my ideas.
2) I pitched my first online business in 1997. Texture was to be an online art gallery/auction site that would bring the non-gallery artists of New York City to the people of middle America who could possibly discover the next Basquiat among our artists.
3) I've had 5 successful online businesses since: Jigsaw, Semper HiFi, Love, Tallulah!, Typecast, and Tania Fox. And one off-line: Dexy*s, a mod bar in NYC.
4) I've never met an idea that wasn't doable, monetisable and viable. My job is to show you HOW.
5) This is the best job ever. And I have had some awesome jobs
