Above my desk I have a cork board. It has collected random slices of my life. Photos, quotes, comics, art, ephemera, customer loyalty cards, unused stamps, and more.
Here are some of the things on my cork board in February 2019:
Museum Hack company party at the American Museum of Natural History. Fall of 2014, I think? Left to right is: Jess, Ethan Angelica, Mark Kennedy, Kate Downey, Lia Tamborra, Zak Martelluci, Michelle Roginsky, me, Jessye Herrell, Michelle Yee, Dustin Growick, Michelle’s boyfriend, and Nora Boyd.
Ethan Angelica, Nina Simon, and me. Maybe this was in 2014 or 2015? It was the first time that I met Nina, who has become one of my best friends.
Quotes and Comics
One of my favorite quotes from an article: “Make your crew your finest act of curatorial courage.” I sometimes write this out on notecards and tape it on the walls of the stairs on cocktail party days at my apartment in Manhattan.
Motivational. I think I got this as part of an art subscription, where they mail you pieces of art every month.
I came across this comic a few months ago when I was deep in my TSLA bias. I printed it out to remind myself.
Tweet sent to my private Twitter account as a reply to something that I shared, from my internet friend Justin Hall.
