I went platinum a few months after starting my job at Americas Society. I also got my first tattoo that year, from Kevin King (now at Bang Bang in lower Manhattan, he started as an apprentice at West 4th Tattoo in the Village). It was a bit of a moment for me: turning 30, working full time in arts admin and actively gigging in numerous new music projects... I felt different, as if I was starting a new era.
I'm now 35, on the cusp of 36, and I am again turning a new leaf: launching Cargo Culture, starting a new part-time gig at Lance Lappin Salon in TriBeCa, and working on my solo album in prep for my Iceland residency in the new year.
