  What has your journey been like in your career? Did you always know that you wanted to be in the food industry? I kind of fell into the food industry as it's my family business, my father owned an Italian Restaurant in New York City for 32 years.  I majored in Politics and African American studies in college and dreamed of joining the Peace Corps and becoming a development worker in sub-Saharan Africa. Alas, I graduated college in 2009 and there were literally zero jobs. So I started working at my father's restaurant to supplement the part time $12/hour...

Where I come from, everything has meaning. Different colors mean different things, animals embody certain distinct characteristics and even everyday objects are significant within different cultures in Ghana. What I do is that I take a lot of inspiration from these concepts and use them to craft my own myths which then show up in my work.

Actor. Director. Musician. You speak french. Is there anything you cannot do? A handstand. You started acting when you were just a kid, how do you think that shaped your career vs those who get involved later? I learned how to do my taxes when I was 12. I had my first kiss on camera.

Singer Songwriter Q. You are a successful, working musician. I would imagine that's super hard to achieve in such a competitive industry.

Founder - No Mo Stache  Q. You founded the portable waxing kit brand, No Mo-Stache, which is being sold EVERYWHERE. Can you tell us how the company got started?A. No Mo-Stache was founded by necessity. I would always be working such crazy hours and traveling so often that I never had a chance to wax - I was pretty much a walking werewolf. I could never make it into a salon with my schedule and when I was home with access to a wax kit, my mustache never seemed to appear in the bathroom mirror enough to remind me to wax. I...

Textile Designer Q: When you were in school, what was your vision for your career? Did it turn out like you thought? (What was your path like, career-wise, up to this point?) A: I’ve lost count how many times I’ve changed my mind about what I want to do. I was all over the place when I was going to Otis and was just so hungry to learn as much as I could. More than anything, I really wanted to learn how to academically draw and paint well. I felt that if I knew how to draw and paint, I...
