Tell me a little about yourself, what you’ve been working on, where you’re from...
I’m from Brooklyn and I still live in BK now, I currently have been focusing a lot on Dizzy Magazine, which is an art publication that I started with Arvid Logan a little over a year ago. But I do a lot of different things, I’ve directed a lot of music videos, and done photography, and I actually work a day job at this space called Picture Room. I program events there, like poetry readings and book launches, so that’s a nice thing to do a few days a week. I’m trying to not say yes to everything now, and trying to find more time for myself and the magazine. Just trying to be creative and travel a lot. I was just in Japan and I feel like right when I graduated from Sarah Lawrence, I guess that was three years ago now, it wasn’t too far from the city, I actually lived in Brooklyn my senior year and commuted, which was kind of crazy.
Sarah Lawrence is upstate, no?
Well it’s in Bronxville, which is in the Yonkers area. Yeah I really don’t know what I was thinking, but I really wanted to kind of jump start what I was doing here because I had already started to make a lot of videos with Destiny and generally just had a lot going on. I was also only taking classes a couple days a week. So commuting from home just seemed to make more sense at the time, but it was a lot. So right out of school I just started really hard right away working and doing all types of stuff. Now that I’m a few years out I’m starting to be like, wait a minute, I’m still really young, I don’t need to get to serious, because I am a very ambitious person and I want to be successful and do as much as I can do.
