What is your hustle ?
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of great music and food.
What is your morning routine ?
The soothing sounds of local news anchor Pat Kiernan reading the papers on NY1 News. Then an immediate espresso.
What is art ?
Art is whatever anyone decides it is. Good art is anything that makes you feel like you've been punched in the gut.
Best advice for others who aspire moving to New York and working in music ?
Only do it if you love it, and if you're gonna do it then go all in. Information is currency. Read anything. Listen to everything. Be everywhere. Meet everyone.
What advice would you give yourself 12 months ago ?
Don't leave the store without buying that pair of Nikes. It will be 12 months later and you're still going to be thinking about them.
