My interview by Leaders in Software and Art

on April 9, 2012 in Art, Blog, Creativity

Leaders in Software and Art posted their interview of me at my solo show at Crossing Art Gallery last June. I thought Isabel did great camera work with a medium that’s hard to capture on video (EDIT: see comment below, where Isabel pointed out Jeff Becker did the camera work). I’m in Beijing, where the government blocks video-sharing sites, so I can’t see how the above video renders. Here’s the[…] Keep reading →

The reporters did their research and spent time understanding the piece. Plus with the designers Coco && Breezy passing by and being interviewed, the exchange was amazing. Below is the news story and here is the link to the NY1 story online. The video[…] Keep reading →

Audio interview: my first sale, with Coca-Cola

on October 24, 2011 in Audio, Blog, Entrepreneurship

Following up last week’s interview on sales lessons from a great failure, this week’s interview covers the result of sticking with it after that failure: Submedia’s first sale, which came with Coca-Cola signing as Submedia’s d├ębut advertiser, as documented in the New York Times, for example, and elsewhere. I doubt Submedia could have achieved such a great success without first having gone through a spectacular failure at first.
