Where are you from?
I am from Brooklyn, NY and by the grace of God, I still live in the same apartment I was raised in. I lived in Philly off and on for 8 years, it still has my heart.
What do you do?
TV is my work--currently working in digital and linear content strategy. In the past I have written for daily live shows, award shows, talk shows and helped produce integrated marketing campaigns.
What is your dream creative project?
My dream is to create cool, inspiring, informational, insightful shit with my friends. I want to make documentaries, children's books, curatorial exhibits, a tv series... and I'm going to do all of that! In the past I would say my job stopped me, but I've recently switched gears/jobs so... nothing can stop me I'm all the way up #FatJoeVoice
Where are your favorite places to…
Eat? - Peaches Shrimp & Crab... the lobster ziti is incredible
Dance? - in my room.. I should get out more. Back in the day it used to be House of Yes.
Drink? - also in my room, my sanctuary. But truly, any place that has D'usse or sparkling prosecco AND st. germaine (come correct !!! )
Shop? - Nordstrom Rack and Century 21~ I'm hood rich.
Where are your go-to tunes for…
Rising? - actually I listen to podcasts, any type of interview or conversational babble helps me get out of the house more so than music which consumes every fiber in my body
Exercising? - DMX, Vybz Kartel, and New Orleans Bounce remixes
Partying? - anything from my current favorite rappers (Lil Baby & Gunna)
Is there something you really want to do in your city that you haven't yet?
I really would like to visit the Tenement Museum in the LES, I've passed by it for years and never been. I'm inspired by architecture and how it affects our lifestyle (or vice versa)--historically and now.
