Author and Entrepreneur James Oliver, Jr. on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Welcome to the THIRD ANNIVERSARY episode of the Curve the Cube Podcast!! My special guest on this milestone of a day is author and entrepreneur, James Oliver, Jr. of WeMontage, who wrote a book that I absolutely fell in love with and have discussing in pieces with a few of my most recent guests. His book, The More You Hustle, the Luckier You Get, provides a deluge of raw, relatable trials and triumphs that all of us shooting for a dream can find both humor and comfort in.

In this episode, James parses out the difference between being a successful entrepreneur and having a successful business, and we touch back on those concepts I discussed earlier in this series of episodes:

  • Listening to that inner voice and honoring your true self
  • Going out on your own takes effing hard work
  • Keeping the faith
  • "Don't make safe choices in life because it's convenient to do so."

James doesn’t pull any punches and was simply the PERFECT pick to sum up some of the main touch points I’ve been covering all along on this show. So….

Enjoy!!

And, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening for these past three years; as you've heard me say on the last couple of episodes, my plan has been to flipping the name of the show from from “Curve the Cube: Where Dreamers Become Doers” to “Dreamers Become Doers: Curve the Cube and Do the Impossible.” But, after a very thoughtful conversation with my mentor, Glenn the Geek from the Horse Radio Network, there is an even BIGGER change that I now have planned for the show and hope you can all get behind. As the coincidence of good timing would have it, Glenn and I will be spending some time together this weekend. So, he’ll join me in recording a fully fleshed-out announcement and explanation of that change. So, be sure to look for that, as it could even be released ahead of the next scheduled release date for the show, which would normally be the first.

Jamaal "Visualist" Clark on His Second Curve the Cube Podcast Appearance

I had a chance to catch up with long-time friend of the podcast--artist and photographer, Jamaal "Visualist" Clark.

We chat about his painting, his photography, and expanding his horizons and his vision for the future!

Now, I didn't have a chance to record a Learning Curve segment for this episode. Things have been CRAZY these last couple of weeks with technical issues post-Hurricane Irma and with preparing for my International Podcast Day broadcast. But, I promise to get The Learning Curve back on track for the next episode!!

Also, I'll be starting up a new segment in a future episode where I share something cool that a former guest or one of you guys is doing in pursuing your dream. And, I'm open to suggestions for naming that segment. Drop me a line on the Dreamers Become Doers Facebook page to make your suggestion!

Enjoy!!

Haitian Artist to the Stars Jason JaFleu Fleurant on the Curve the Cube Podcast

One of my favorite people (and my birthday buddy), Jason "Jafleu" Fleurant, visits the podcast FOR THE THIRD TIME!! He's our first three-peat, and this is our most exciting conversation to DATE! He shares fun stories of his milestones, opens up about the struggles, lays down insightful knowledge, and comes through with all the feels. He is a remarkable talent who is a rising star!!

Included in this episode is a VERY special announcement of my own--one that is a culmination of 6 months of solid hard work on my part and mentorship on the part of Glenn the Geek from the Horse Radio Network. It's HUGE.

This episode is being released ahead of schedule, as Hurricane Irma is most likely going to knock out my power and internet for a while. Eek! So, to all my listeners in Florida, download it NOW, so you can use it as a distraction while you are hunkering down. Be safe. Take Irma seriously, and I will talk to you all on the other side!

Enjoy!!

Vlogger and Content Creator Kate Volman on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Hey! Welcome to episode 121 of Curve the Cube where we talk to people walking the walk--those dreamers who've become doers--or, "curvists," as I like to call them, since they curve their way around those obstacles and figure out how to get stuff done. And, this episode features a lady who I am not only so happy, but also so proud to call a friend. Her name is Kate Volman, and if you are also a fan of my other podcast, Eggheads After Hours, then you have heard her voice before giving all kinds of fantastic tips, or "Business Bites," as she calls them, about how to propel your business forward. She is undeniably smart and strategic, AND she has figured out how to really craft her career with purpose.

Kate's specialty is vlogging--a.k.a., “video blogging”--and using videos to create fantastic brand content, communicate with her followers, and create lasting relationships. If you have a blog, vlog, marketing team, or are just thinking, "What's the best way for me to get my message out there and build an online reputation?" Kate is for you!!

Now, the Learning Curve segment at the end of this episode is going to be SUPER short, because Kate does such a fantastic job of digging in deep with her ideas and creating clear action items for you to take. So, I really don't have to do much. She makes my job so much easier, lol.

So, let's get on with my talk with Kate Volman. You are going to gain so much valuable information and see pretty quickly why I adore her so.

Enjoy!!

Photographer Nikyta Haynes on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Thanks so much for joining me on episode 120 where I feature one of my new best friends (seriously... I told her I was adopting her as my new little sister), photographer Nikyta Haynes!! Her brand is Kyta Beez and her tag line is "Definitely Different" and I can personally testify that this girl STANDS OUT!! I got to meet her at an art exhibit by long-time friend of the show, Jafleu. She was just walking around doing her thing and taking pictures. I had brought my son, Jordon, along with me and surprised him by bringing his camera, so he could take pictures, too. (He wants to be a photographer when he grows up, after all.)

We ran into Nikyta while wandering the various photography studies and Jordon and I were both instantly taken by her. She was so kind to him, he loved her "cool" camera, as he put it, and they even took photos together in one of the professional studios. You simply don't meet kind people like that everyday. And, when she gave me a glimpse into her story, I just HAD to have her on the show!

And, she was so nice in joining me at my Entrepreneur Influencers Brunch hosted by Style Chambers last weekend. She took some great photos of the event, which you can browse through here.

Now, sit back and relax and listen to this inspiring episode with Nikyta and check out her work at Kytabeez.com! It's episode 120... enjoy!

Yami Avendano of Twinfinite.net on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Hey there! Welcome to episode 119 of the Curve the Cube podcast. I can't believe it's already episode 119. Thank you so much for being a listener and coming along on this journey with me. I hope you are becoming more and more of a curvist yourself, too!!

This episode features a girl I am sooo excited to introduce you to, in case you don't know her, yet. She's Yamilia Avendano, a.k.a. Yami, and she founded her uber successful video game press site, Twinfinite.net, about 6 years ago. We sat down right on the heels of her coming back from E3 and had SUCH a fun time! She may seem unassuming and even a bit shy. But, don't let her fool you. She is a force to be reckoned with, and there's simply no stopping her rise to the top! On this episode we talk about how she gets creative with her video series, whether turning your passion into a career makes it feel like a job, feeling you need to do it all (but, for everyone else), and of COURSE, some of her E3 reviews.

In a bit of a formatting toss-up (I warned you I would be playing a bit with the show's format for a few episodes here and there), I will be diving deep into the whole passion-feeling-like-a-job issue in a mini-solocast before then taking the topic to The Learning Curve. AND, you will be treated to a quick sneak appearance by one of my new favorite people, Glenn the Geek of the Horse Radio Network!

So, just a couple of quick reminders: Please check out all the shows on the Flint Stone Media Podcast Network by going to FSMPodcastNetwork.com. And, join the conversation on Facebook the the Dreamers Become Doers group. Head to DreamersBecomeDoers.com for all the info!

Alrighty, let's get into the conversation with Yami of Twinfinite.net, already! And, I apologize in advance for my massive case of the giggles!!

Become an Industry Influencer with the Curve the Cube Podcast

Thank you for joining me on this 118th episode! It's a solocast about becoming an influencer in your industry, which is very timely for me, as it seems to be starting to happen to me right NOW. I am fresh off of my podcasting presentation to the Mystery Writers of America, Florida Chapter, and it could not have been a more fun event. And, even more, the aftermath has been fantastic and really driven into me the power of being seen as an influencer in your industry.

So, let's dive into the benefits and how-to of becoming an influencer and spark some creative ideas of how you can become an influencer yourself. I switch up the format on this episode, leading with my usual tasty nuggets in The Learning Curve. Then, I treat you to my MWA presentation audio, which is chock-full of tips on how to get booked on podcasts (a GREAT way to gain exposure and be seen as an influencer) and tons of information on how to start your own podcast (also a great way to become known). So, take some good notes on this podcast and become your industry's next influencer!!

Enjoy!!

Jules Pierre-Louis of Hive Hube Media and the Hustle All Day Podcast on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I welcome to the podcast my fabulous friend and guest, Jules Pierre-Louis, co-founder of Hive Hub Media, host of the latest show to be added to the Flint Stone Media Podcast Network, Hustle All Day, and a multi-talented human. He is a true hustler, and on this episode we talk about when the switch flipped for him to break out on his own and what he did to break free. Then, I take the discussion to The Learning Curve on the flip side, of course.

There's an added treat at the end of this episode; so, don't let it confuse you--haha. I'll be sharing a quick clip pulled from Hustle All Day, where I appear as a guest cohost to interview creator James Oliver, Jr. So, you'll hear us both again.

Alright, you fearless curvist you... It's now time to sit back and relax and enjoy this convo with Jules Pierre-Louis about flipping the switch and breaking free. It's the 117th episode of the Curve the Cube Podcast!!

Curve the Cube Podcast - Finding Your Tribe

On this next solocast for episode #116 of the Curve the Cube podcast, I dive into the idea of building your personal network. It is not only advantageous, but essential (and, thereby, very important) to build yourself a personal network while navigating your passion pursuit. Who else is going to understand your struggles--those times you want to pull your hair out, give up, start questioning EVERYTHING, can't find your way through a seemingly insurmountable obstacle? We are a select tribe, people! And, no one understands our level of crazy (um, I mean "commitment") like another who's in the game right along with us.

So, on this podcast, I talk about the many benefits to be gleamed from forming your network. Then, at the end, I take the "how-to" of creating your own inner circle to The Learning Curve with 3 Ways to Find Your Tribe!

Enjoy!!

Michael Hall of Digital Grass and MediumFour on the Curve the Cube Podcast 

Hi, guys!!!

I'm so glad you guys are joining me for episode #115 of Curve the Cube where my guest is serial entrepreneur, Michael Hall of Digital Grassroots Innovation & Technology (D.G.I.T.) and Medium Four. Michael and I get into a LOT on this podcast: mental blocks, diversity, finding your target audience, and the concept of dying empty. He really gave me such good stuff to work with. But, I decided to take two things to The Learning Curve at the end of the episode:

  1. Getting around that mental roadblock that naturally happens when you are super excited about a great idea, but then realize you're not the first to market. And,
  2. What Michael says in this conversation about dying empty hit me so hard, I just HAD to talk more about that, too.

There's tons to digest, guys; so, I tried keep my own updates in this intro as short as possible. But, yeah... I have a lot going on, too!

SO... with all that said, sit back and relax with this, the 115th episode of the Curve the Cube podcast with Michael Hall.

Enjoy!!

Be Relentless in the Pursuit of Your Dreams with the Curve the Cube Podcast

Today's Curve the Cube solocast episode is all about being relentless!! My dad calls it my "bulldog" effect, and I'm going to break down what it means, the dos and don'ts of being relentless, why you shouldn't be afraid to hear "no" (and what to do when you DO hear it), AND my biggest tip for not giving up (which actually can help in any number of life situations, as a matter of fact).

I know the practice of being relentless doesn't come easy for everybody. So the first step is to decide everyday that you will move forward. Give yourself a pat on the back... you've already accomplished your minimal daily productivity by listening to this one episode! Now, when you're done, go out and be relentless in your pursuit of your dreams!

Thanks so much for listening. Remember to find your passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Entertainer Michael 'Spaz' McGoorty of the Pure Zeppelin Experience on the Curve the Cube Podcast

This super-charged, energy-filled, and insightful Curve the Cube podcast episode is brought to you by the creative electricity flowing unabated through Michael 'Spaz' McGoorty's veins. This is a man who has, through music, acting, and comedy, managed to channel his creative energy into some highly impressive projects. He becomes Robert Plant as he leads The Pure Zeppelin Experience, has starred in Jesus Christ Superstar, and is half of the comedy company duo, Casey 'N' Spaz Comedy with nephew, Casey Peruski.

And, he lends his advice to all fellow curvists as we talk about these three topics that I then take to The Learning Curve at the end:

  1. Getting booked: How do you get booked to do a show when you don't have material to show them; but, then, how do you get material to show them without getting booked?
  2. Helping others as a great way to help yourself
  3. Make your own opportunities happen

And... BIG NEWS!! Spaz has put together a fantastic offer for Curve the Cube's local listeners.

Curve the Cube Solocast with Host Jaime Legagneur About Working for Free

This latest Curve the Cube Podcast episode is all about the conundrum of working for free. Yikes!! When you are working hard toward your dreams and goals, it can be very tempting to take an opportunity that doesn't pay you because there are other potential benefits involved. But, beware--there are leeches out there you have to watch out for and it's easy to be taken advantage of. Some friends of mine help me examine these dilemmas, and I of COURSE take it to The Learning Curve at the end.

I will also share with you my own exciting stockpile of news and a clip of me on my mentor, Glenn's, show, Horses in the Morning. It's an episode full of fun and insightful takeaways. So, keep in mind all the dangers that lurk when you decide to do any work for free and make sure you don't fall into common traps.

Thanks so much for listening. Remember to find your passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Charles Milling of Live Hymnal on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Welcome to episode #111 of the Curve the Cube podcast, where I will continue to take you with me on my own journey of curving the cube and also catch up with musician Charles Milling--solo artist and Live Hymnal band leader, previously featured on episode #13. He is a visionary, marrying new sounds with the traditional church, and he and I talk a bunch about Live Hymnal's latest album, Procession while also diving into some totally curvist-aimed topics, like:
1) Dealing with industry changes you never saw coming,
2) The challenge of getting people to say, "I must have that!" about YOUR unique thing, and
3) As a creative, knowing when it's ok to end the pursuit of project perfection.

Then I take those topics to a new segment I'm calling The Learning Curve, where I share specific actionable items, tips, tricks, and pieces of advice for you to put into play as you curve your own cube.

So, buckle up for a pretty packed episode, guys!! It was my first foray into the world of editing with my new software, Hindenburg, and I was super nervous about it!!

Thanks so much for listening. Remember to find your passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Host Jaime is Curving her own Cube and Gearing up for PME2017

Hey guys! In order to make this podcast an honest resource, it is important for me to share how I'm curving my own cube, too. Well, a must-make-happen item for me for 2017 was to attend at least one podcasting conference this year. It was a BIG, lofty, pie-in-the sky goal that I was determined to make happen, and thanks to Chris Krimitsos and the generous team at Podfest, I'm getting to do just that!!

They have sponsored my ticket for podfest, and I am gearing up... So, take a listen!

It's important, when you are a dreamer wanting to become a doer, not only to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way, but to do whatever it takes to make the opportunities happen in the first place.

Remember to find you passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

#105 - SOLOCAST - The Story of How I Got Here - 20161128

Curve the Cube Podcast 105 - The Story of How I Got Here - 20161128

Guys!! I was invited to present recently at a Center for Autism and Related Disabilities at Florida Atlantic University's Career Day, and it was wonderful. One of my career goals is public speaking, and this was my first dive into it. I was such impressive company--other presenters including an environmentalist, event planner, comic book illustrator, creator of an online social community for the disabled, and a police officer. So, THANK YOU to Mr. Darius Murray, CARD's Clinical Mentoring Associate, for having me. It was such an epic honor!!

But, I only got to talk for about 10 minutes (and, you guys know I can TALK!). Since I really had to rush through my story and its lessons, I decided to flesh out a whole solocast for you. On this episode, I share how and why I changed my career, the journey I took to get to where I am (so far), and some advice on how to do the same yourself. (Hint: It involves a LOT of hard work!)

I have included my actual Career Day Powerpoint presentation as a bonus download, in case you want to check that out as well. And, there are so many opportunities to positively and powerfully /impact youth with autism. Reach out to Darius by phone at 561-213-6936 or by email at dmurra23@fau.edu. Or, head to Autism.FAU.edu.

Activist and Artist Rolando Chang Barerro on the Curve the Cube Podcast

It's the 104th episode of the Curve the Cube podcast with local and already legendary artist and activist Rolando Chang Barerro!! This man has seen, been through, and done a LOT. I mean, holy schnikes!! You've been warned, curvists... This episode is pretty raw.

I met up with Rolando at his latest gallery venture, the Box Gallery off of Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach--really excited to talk about his art and his career and everything like that. But, we ended up talking, yes... about that, but also about SO MUCH MORE!! From the HIV/AIDS crisis in the 80s through the evolution of activism into modern times, Rolando has seen up close and personal a history in this country that hasn't always been pretty, but has brought out a spirit of activism that has always been at the core beautiful.

So, sit back and relax, and enjoy this, the 104th episode of Curve the Cube with artist, activist, and overall wonderful human, Rolando Chang Barerro.

#102 - SOCIOCULTURAL - Veterens Day, Donald Trump, & the American Dream - 20161111

Veterens Day, Donald Trump, & the American Dream on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Curvists and new listeners, the foundation of a pursuit of dreams for many is the American Dream itself, and there is really no dream more emblematic or inspiring around the world than that beacon America has been as a place where hope meets hard work.

But, we find ourselves at a time in our American history where masses of people feel like that American Dream is at grave risk for them. And, this election (and, for many, Donald Trump himself, is a driving force of either a promise newly lost or a promise newly regained.

So, as I heard of an anti-Trump protest on Veterans Day right here in West Palm Beach (and, a bubbling counter-protest), I decided to head down there and see what those dreams are for people. There is a clear passion involved in both protesting and counter-protesting, and I wanted to get to the root of some of this passion. And, I was as struck by the diversity of answers as I was by the possible areas of common ground that seemed to surface.

So, my hope with this episode is to allay fears, but inspire action; to propose areas of commonality, so we can focus on continuing to progress as a unified, strong country and world leader; and to help people understand one another's struggles better. We really need to stop living only in our individual pockets. As diverse of a country as we have, we need to step out and listen to one another more. And, I hope we can all be more active toward that American dream that unites us all.

#101 - SOLOCAST - The Importance of Doing What You Dream - 20161105

Curve the Cube Podcast - The Importance of Pursuing Your Dreams

Established Curvists and new listeners alike: your host and producer shares a message of the importance of doing what you dream on this episode of Curve the Cube!

People get taken off their course in life for all sorts of reasons. But, whether as a hobby, a part-time gig, or as a full-time thing, doing what you love is simply vital to one's spirit, and we can't allow ourselves to forget that. I mean, the alternative is to live every day in black-and-white, instead of the vibrant color that could await you. And, since we all only get one walk through this life on Earth, we shouldn't waste it, right?

In this podcast, I discuss not only the importance of feeding your soul with what you love, but to do so smartly and with measured risk, if, like me and some other curvists, your goal is to make a living off of your dream and your dream alone. And, I share what pursuing my own dream has meant in my life: the opportunities I've had come my way, the people I have met, and the conversations with guests that have really touched my life. None of that would have happened had I never stepped out and pursued my dream.

The road hasn't always been easy, and I share some of the particular difficulties and challenges I have faced. Pursuing your dream, quite simply, is really, really hard. But, at the end of the day, when you are doing what you love, every bead of sweat and lost hour of sleep is completely worth it!!

"When you're not practicing those things that are really authentic to you and you're just giving all of your time to these other things that are pulling you off of your path and the person that's aching to be you, then you have to fill the void with a lot of junk food for the soul." ~ Tami Stronach from episode #100 and star of The Neverending Story

#100 – ENTERTAINER – Tami Stronach - 2016-10-28

Tami Stronach of The Neverending Story on the Curve the Cube Podcast

If you're anywhere NEAR as big of a fan as I am of my FAVORITE movie of all time, The Neverending Story, then you will LOVE hearing me chat with Tami Stronach. (I mean, it's not every day you get to talk to a childlike empress!) And, it’s not every day you get to talk to a star you’ve admired for 30+ years on your 100th episode. I was absolutely beside myself.

And, what a wonderful conversation we had! Tami is as equally driven as I am to spread the message of the importance of doing what you dream. In this podcast, we explore how the film for each of us (her as a participant and me as a spectator) has influenced our lives and encouraged us to do just that. She was absolutely delightful and just a pure joy to talk to. This podcast came about following an exchange she and I had on Twitter after I took my son to a special screening of The Neverending Story. It was a magical experience for me to see it on the big screen for the first time, to be able to pass on the hope of the film to my son, and to then have that experience connect me with Tami. It was so amazing, and I hope it’s the first of many great conversations with her!!

Tami has since spent her life in the love of dance with her studio and production company, Tami Stronach Dance, in which she puts together very expressive and beautiful performances. She and her family have also started the Paper Canoe Company, in which they focus on media for young children. They have their first album coming out soon; so, be sure to look out or that!!

Follow Tami Stronach on: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook

In the spirit of fun and fantasy, Happy Halloween, and thank you for 100 episodes. Here’s to another, curvists!! #DoWhatYouDream

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by Little Smiles of Florida! Little Smiles helps kids right here in our own neighborhoods who are struggling through something that no kid should ever have to deal with. They work with the professionals closest to them to identify ways to put the little smiles on their faces.

#98 - Updates and the Future of the Curve the Cube Podcast - 20161016

Host Jaime Announces and the Future of the Curve the Cube Podcast

Hi, Curvists! I really need to update you all on what's going on! There was no episode last week. (Eek!!) Well, there was a reason for that named Hurricane Matthew. So, I wanted to share with you all what is going on and what is coming up, including a new direction I am taking the podcast in. So, I'm excited to get into it!!

I am working to reschedule with Jared Easely, founder of the Podcast Movement annual conferences and something called the Podcast Cruise, which I have no idea what it is, but it sounds amazing, and I can't wait to talk to him. I know a lot of you were particularly excited for that episode. We were supposed to record just before his podcast MeetUp of the Podcast South Florida a couple of Saturdays ago on the 8th. But, the venue had to cancel the event, due to the hurricane. So, that of course meant my podcast with him that was supposed to happen right beforehand has to now be rescheduled. So, we are working that out.

Local small biz and digital marketing powerhouse, Kate Volman was to be on as well. She's a content creator and web show host who is on her way to taking over south Florida. She helps businesses share their stories as part of their marketing efforts, is super smart, and a lot of fun. But, we are having to reschedule, again because of things being just thrown off course, lol.

But, both of those episodes are still coming up!

So, because of recent events, I wanted to share with you a lesson I have learned about keeping my priorities in check. I am a big-time planner. Between my marketing company and clients and growing that, this podcast, my Podcast Network and sister shows, and the Palm Beach Podcasters, my to do list is gargantuan. So, I HAVE to be a big-time planner and schedule as much as possible weeks in advance. For the most part, this is a one-woman show. So, if I don't do it, it doesn't get done. I'm currently considering ways of reducing that workload, but that's for a whole other conversation. AND, I'm (most importantly, and as many of you know) also a single mom to a beautiful 4&1/2 year-old little boy, Jordon--my angel and whole heart.

So, as you can imagine, he comes first, everything else comes second, friends and family get peppered throughout as much as I can, and then my needs usually come last. My plate is simply crazy-full! I had already put on pause pretty much all of my duties as the social media person behind the KVJ Show's fan accounts, KVJNation, because something had to give. I mean, that should tell you right there the fullness of my plate right now, if I've temporarily set aside something that I love that much.

So, my cup already runneth over, and my body was suffering the consequences. Lack of sleep and healthier eating coupled with more stressors than I could speak of (all good things, but come on, let's get real, still stressful, right?), September turned into the Month of the Migraine, with my having more days WITH these debilitating headaches than not. In fact, at one point, I was in the fetal position for about a day and a half. It was awful.

With everything suddenly being thrown off by the massive Hurricane Matthew having this area in its crosshairs, my schedule was thrown out the window, I had to scramble to get hurricane-ready because I had to make sure Jordon was well set, I had to set some clients up for the hurricane because, yes, hurricanes impact marketing efforts, too. So, everything was suddenly just completely nuts and unpredictable.

After getting myself and my clients hurricane-ready, I still had so much more on my plate--even more than usual because of the total disruption that is a major hurricane. I had a choice to make, a fork in the road, so to speak. Have a complete panic-induced meltdown, or just accept it for the opportunity it was: the chance to relax. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of the hustle itself, we get so caught in the momentum--especially when great things are happening, that we lose sight of the bigger picture. We pursue our dreams, ultimately, in the pursuit of happiness, right? Well, if my body is screaming at me that it needs rest, and that message is being delivered in the form of relentless migraines, mama is NOT happy. I looked around my room. With plywood covering the windows for the hurricane, it was like a cave--a perfect little recuperative nest free of light.

So, once it was clear we had been spared by Matthew (thank GOD!!), I had Jordon spend a couple of days with his dad, so I could spend a couple of days under covers with an ice pack on my neck to knock out my migraine once and for all. I succumbed, and it was definitely the right decision. Not only did I reenergize, but it gave me a chance to step back and see the forest--not just the trees I was usually caught up in. I thought through how to move forward while making my rest more of a priority.

So, I've taken some time to concentrate now on just finishing getting EHAH, a new podcast project off the ground. It's something some friends of mine and I have just recently launched where we talk about putting tech into our community and the community into our tech. But, getting it rolling has been a massive responsibility. And, being able to focus on finishing that rollout now while taking advantage of this gap in Curve the Cube, has taken a load of the pressure off! So, if you like tech talk, please had to EggHeadsAHP.com and subscribe to us in iTunes. In fact, the aforementioned Kate Volman is one of my Egg Head cohosts. So, that podcast can give you an intro into my upcoming Curve the Cube episode with her!

I have also made a decision with CTC that I hope you will all find interesting and appealing. I have decided to spend more episodes doing exactly what I'm doing now--sharing my own Curve the Cube journey.

Since this podcast started as being all about inspiring people to pursue their dreams by talking to other people who are doing just that and has sprouted a shunt to this parallel story of me curving my own cube, I decided to start doing just what I'm doing here: sharing more of my own journey to curving my own cube. In episode 93, my amazing compadres, Scotty Fusion and Jessica Prestige, helped by cohosting and asking me a bunch of questions from themselves and some listeners. And, I think I caught a bug for it in that episode and really just want more personal interaction and conversation with you guys, my fellow Curvists, about what it is to pursue your dreams--stuff my guests have taught me about that pursuit and what I've been learning here as I navigate my own.

In fact, on episode 4 of EHAH, which comes out October 25th, I talk a little bit about a recent decision I made on whether or not to archive my early episodes of Curve the Cube and why or why not. So, that was an interesting thought process I shared there. So, this slightly evolved structure will help me stress less about my guest scheduling and concentrate more on bringing better quality in overall content and audio. So, by adding in interviews with myself, it should help me be able to slow down and give better focus on post-production.

But, have no fear! I am continuing to bring you great traditional CTC content, and once episodes start back up in the next week or two, I'll be back to posting episodes every week! In addition to the rescheduled guests, I also have other super inspiring people lined up to motivate you to find your passion and do your thing, too!

Jennifer McGrath
She is the Director of Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper, a local non-profit that raises money to help those fighting ovarian cancer who are experiencing financial difficulty. And, she has a unique story of her own for why she is passionate about helping others with ovarian cancer.

Tami Stronach
If you're anywhere NEAR as big of a fan as I am of my FAVORITE movie of all time, The Neverending Story, then you will LOVE hearing me chat with Tami. I mean, it's not everyday you get to talk to a childlike empress!

Unnamed!!
And, to add one more to the list, I am waiting on confirmation back from a very, let's just say, special kind of matchmaker. I can't say her name, yet, because she is waiting for approval back from her manager. But, she thinks it's likely; so, keep your fingers crossed!!

(Wow, I just realized this is a list full of ladies. Go, girl power!!)

I am also in very early talks to get a sitdown with aerial reporter, Johann Hoffend of WPTV's Chopper 5, and Jerry Soma, who puts on the Feast of Little Italy every year, no small task!!

So, like I said, loads of great stuff coming, guys. So, no worries, friends!!

In the meantime, shuffle back through the old episodes. I know some of you have missed some great guests! All of the other Egg Heads (Eddy Garcia, Aaron Wormus, and Joe Russo, have all been featured previously on Curve the Cube. I've had conversations with former pro-wrestler Glenn Ruth aka Thrasher of the Headbangers, actors from the Blacklist and Bloodline, the president of Nerdist Industries, hosts of the KVJ Show, Representative Lois Frankle,... I mean, just some really, really fascinating people!

I've had lots of other greatly inspirational Curvists on, too--from musicians to artists, entrepreneurs to writers, and so much more in between!! And, I've had really meaningful conversations with people like my friend, Drew, who shared his very personal story of gender reassignment, and my friend, Sharif, who shared insights into his Islamic faith.

And, of course, I CAN'T forget my Pod Squad with regular co-hosts, Jay Cintron and Scotty Fusion. We talk about all sorts of funny stuff, and you can find those episodes organized for you right on CTCPodSquad.com.

So, all in all, there is a great big backlog of nearly 100 episodes for you to listen back to as I get some great new content and these fantastic new guests all lined up.

Remember to keep pursuing your own dreams. Do not give up or get discouraged. Dig in, work hard, but, don't miss the forest for the trees.

Find Your Passion... Do Your Thing!!

#97 – 3D STREET ARTIST – Jennifer Chaparro - 2016-09-24

3D Interactive Street Artist Jennifer Chaparro on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Multiple award-winning street artist Jennifer Chaparro creates interactive 3D art on a spans of flat pavement, concrete, … you name it! And, her work, though physically temporary, will never leave the audience’s memory. Whether pretending to sit in a kayak about to go over a waterfall, or (as I did) practicing a balancing act on a giant crayon, I can personally testify that enjoying her interactive art is simply a joy that sticks with you. On this podcast, Jennifer explains the genius behind how she does it. Very cool!!

Jen is a fun and extremely business-savvy woman, and in this episode tells her story of how she fell out of the corporate office and into the life of 3D street art—at first accidentally; then with all the drive and gusto of a determined business owner. And, through talent, passion, and drive, she is now following her dreams all over the world!

#94 – SPIRITUAL LIFE COACH AND YOGA TEACHER – Jennifer Martin - 2016-09-10

Spiritual Life Coach and Yoga Instructor Jennifer Martin on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to spend a slice of my birthday podcasting with than the inspiring spiritual life coach and yoga instructor, Jennifer Martin. We met up following her yoga class at the Hilton West Palm Beach where she teaches on Saturdays, and had this very uplifting conversation.

Not only is she super-charged for spreading her life’s message through yoga and public speaking, but she is also a beautiful writer who regularly shares her inspirational and motivational musings on Instragram. Hers is definitely an account you want to follow!!), but also pens articles with messages like this:
“The best decision I’ve ever made was leaving my corporate job and opening my first yoga studio. I’ve made sacrifices, but I get intense joy from sharing my passion. I’m so grateful for all that I have, I aspire to make an even bigger impact. Be relentless in your life’s pursuit. It's a disservice to the world not to share your gifts.”

Clearly, with a message like that being so aligned with the purpose of this podcast, it was pure kismet that Jennifer and I were able to both geek out with and energize one another about the joy that is faith and following your dream!

Catch Jennifer at the Women Empower Expo in Ft. Lauderdale on Oct 15th for her workshop, “Using Fear and Faith to Get Into Agreement with Your Soul’s Purpose," and follow her on:

#91 - BONUS: Updates - Happy August 27th!!!

Curve the Cube Updates - Happy August 27th!!

A year ago today, I left a job for a dream. Having built a successful career as a data analyst, I was willing to walk away from a sure thing for one reason: I found my true passion in life was elsewhere. So, after spending a couple of years laying down a foundation, I was able to take a bit of a bolder step towards a career reset, and life refresh.

Both for the time before a year ago and since then, my guests on Curve the Cube have been a constant source of excitement, inspiration, and motivation to know (unequivocally!) that I wanted that same passion and zest in life, and I was willing to work my butt off for it.

It hasn't been easy, but it has been well worth it. As this podcast comes out today, I'm not sitting home burnt out from spending a week with the weight of drudgery. Rather, I'm exhilarated, having been immersed in the world of digital marketing all week, and I am tackling the world of podcasting with full gusto. This morning, I am recording my special birthday podcast, where I've had people turn the tables and ask me questions. This afternoon, I will be hosting the first meeting of the Egg Heads After Hours podcast, a new show I am cohosting with other tech movers-and-shakers in our community: Aaron Wormus (a Guy on Clematis), Kate Volman, and Eddy Garcia of Vivid Arts. Then, I'll be headed home to work on a client's video projects and some more podcast stuff--including planning the Palm Beach Podcasters relaunch MeetUp event!

Sound exhausting? Nope... Best. Day. Ever. I will certainly feel more fulfilled laying my head on my pillow tonight than I did this same night last year. Sounds all well-worth it to me.

And, pursuing YOUR passion can be just as worth it to you! Want to be a musician? Artist? Entrepreneur? Community Organizer? Whatever it is... find it and do it!

That is the point of my mission: to encourage you to Find your Passion... Do your Thing!!

#88 – NON-PROFIT – Palm Beach Zoo – 2016-07-30

Palm Beach Zoo on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Palm Beach Zoo’s Membership Manager, Amanda Joy, and Animal Curator, Amy Anderson, are two of the warmest, most lovely people I have ever met, and they made this podcast everything I could have hoped it would be and more! As we stood by the capybara exhibit (where I had to refrain from freaking out from pure excitement), these ladies shared their infectious enthusiasm for working with these wonderful animals. They conveyed the Zoo’s message and mission of conservation and education and how they see these animals in their care as ambassadors for their brethren in the wild. The sound of the Zoo’s animals all around us was just a symphony of confirmation of the beauty of our planet’s beautiful creatures.

How much Amy and Amanda truly love and care for the animals is completely obvious. They have a true passion for what they do, and it was a privilege to have them on! Special thanks to Naki Carter (ncarter@palmbeachzoo.org), the Zoo’s award-winning Public Relations Manager who is absolutely amazing in setting this podcast up. She and her team have really been coming up with innovative ways to promote the park and its message, including tons of real-time pics and videos on their social media feeds, special events, animal paintings, and more!!

Rewind to episode #84—a bonus episode all about the Zoo’s use of Pokémon Go to “lure” trainers to their park on Fridays to “Catch ‘em all” at their Safari Nights. It’s pretty fun and ingenious!!

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Stacey Konwiser and in honor of all the zookeepers and other zoo staff (such as Amanda and Amy) who dedicate their lives to being a voice for the care and conservation of our planet’s beautiful creatures.

#87 – ACTOR AND MUSICIAN – David Abeles - 2016-07-29

Broadway Actor and star of Matilda the Musical Dave Abeles on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I was absolutely delighted to see my old high school friend come back to the south Florida theater scene last March. David Abeles came through the Kravis Center on his Broadway tour of Matilda the Musical, playing the dominant and imposing role of Miss Trunchbull. I took my son to go see my friend do what I know he does best, and we were both so delighted by Dave’s performance and the entire cast and production! What a treat!!

Dave and I went to high school together at Pine Crest School in Ft. Lauderdale, and I always knew he would grow up to give his talents as a gift to the world. He was one of those people who just had that “it” factor; but, what makes him so special is that he is truly humble. On this podcast, he shares the story of his journey from Broward County to London to New York, and what life is like as an actor on the move!!

Follow Dave on Twitter as @iAmDavidAbeles!

#86 – CTCKids – DJ & Music Composer – Alex Ariete (Alexander Popovics) – 2016-07-19

CTCKid, DJ, Music Composer, and Ballroom Dancer, Alex Ariete (Alex Popovics) on the Curve the Cube Podcast

In this episode, I catch up with young and super-talented DJ & music composer, Alex Ariete! You may remember Alex as one of my very first CTC Kid from episode 11—back when he was known by his original stage name, DJ Pop Drop. Each time I see Alex out and about, it’s incredible how much he’s grown—physically and musically. Since we last sat down, Alex has continued to develop his skills as a musician—creating new original tracks, playing a bunch of gigs, traveling for different events and things, meeting amazing EDM mentors, and collaborating with different artists.

On top of that, Alex continues to excel at his dance, competing regularly and doing very well! He’s simply a powerhouse of young, ambitious, and promising talent. On the podcast, we talk about how he’s grown musically and artistically and how important his parents’ support continues to be. Catch Alex on Palm Beach FM every other Tuesday night where he is not only a resident DJ, but is also starting to conduct his own industry interviews.

I’m so excited to see where this kid goes!

#85 – POET, WRITER, AND DIRECTOR – Jessica “Empress Prestige” McCready - 2016-07-17

Poet, Writer, and Director, Jessica “Empress Prestige” McCready on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Founder of Poetry In Motion Productions: (PIMP!), Jessica, now known as “Empress Prestige,” knows a thing or two about doing her own thing. She began what started as an unformed idea mass four years ago and worked it into what is now a thriving, repeat project of her own unique concept: ChoreoPoems.

These are forms of dramatic expression that combine poetry, dance, music and song. She conceptualizes the overall story arc, directs the talent, and produces the overall program; but, what makes her plays so unique is that she leaves creative license for each role and its expression to the individual player. Essentially, the cast writes much of the content and she threads it together into a cohesive, intelligent expression of her story.

Their next project is the 4th installment of Pleasant City Thee ChoreoPoem to be shown soon at The Palm Beach Improv and The Mozart Theatre. Also, Empress is working to bring this piece into the forum of a film called Thee Movie. So exciting!!

Her storytelling has community and cultural purpose for the enjoyment and education of every generation. Her diligence, humor, and passion are a true inspiration!

#84 – BONUS: EVENT – Pokemon Go at the Palm Beach Zoo - 2016-07-16

Pokemon Go at the Palm Beach Zoo

Welcome to a BONUS episode of the Curve the Cube Podcast. It is just a bonus, but still very worthy of a number. So, it’s #84! It’s been a while since I’ve covered an event, and this was very impromptu, but still very fun.

(To hear the last event I covered, you will have to rewind to episode #60 where I covered an art gallery opening and then pretty far back to episode #16 with the Shock Pop Comic Con.)

In THIS episode, I get to geek out about the phenomenon of Pokémon Go! There is one local spot that is taking FULL advantage: The Palm Beach Zoo! They laid down some lures and transformed their park full of Pokéstops into a Pokémon trainer’s dream. Sending out a map ahead of time, the zoo primed the local masses to get their teams together and have a #PokemonGo invasion… and it worked!!

A newbie trainer myself, I was SO JAZZED to get out there and go hunting for Pokémon. So, I had my map ready and spent a fun evening capturing Exeggcutes, Pinsirs, Poliwags, and TONS more. The fountain area was particularly littered. It was awesome!!

I stopped along the way and talked to a couple of groups of fellow trainers who were kind enough to spare a few minutes for my questions. (Thanks, guys!) We talked about the sudden craze that is Pokémon Go, getting into teams, strategy, and how much the special event drew them to be at the zoo that night. It was awesome!

There was live music, a Food Truck Invasion (shout out to Hoffman’s Chocolates!), and of course the wonderful and real-life Pokémon—the animals themselves! They absolutely remained the stars of the show!!

I’m having a full podcast with some peeps from the Zoo in a couple of weeks. It’s slated to be episode #88 and released on August 8th; but, keep in touch over social media for updates—mostly on Twitter.

But, aslo keep an eye out while playing the game yourselves! Remember to keep looking up and watching out for “No Trespassing” signs, sketchy folk, cliffs, and mall fountains. It’s just a game, people!!

This is Pokémon Go at the Palm Beach Zoo!

Enjoy!!

Since this quick, impromptu episode has no sponsor, I’ll ask you to please consider supporting the show yourself. It’s my complete pleasure to continue to bring you a show for free, and I thank my sponsors for covering most of my costs. But, there is still room for more help—and, that is where you can come in. Help me continue to keep bringing you conversations with south Florida’s most inspiring, passionate, and talented people. Any amount helps. Visit https://www.patreon.com/CurveTheCube.

#83 – PHOTOGRAPHER – Estelle DeShocka - 2016-07-01

Photographer Estelle DeShocka on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I’ve been an admirer of Estelle DeShocka’s photography for quite some time—watching her in action at various events and then seeing the amazing results online. She is quick on her feet and truly takes such great shots! I’m so glad that on this podcast, I got to finally talk to her more in depth about all the amazing photos she captures at other photo shoots and I then see her share through her various social media outlets. (My favorite was definitely the zombie wedding!)

Estelle and I get into the types of photo shoots she likes best, where she gets her great theme ideas, how she secures her models and additional vendors and more. She even gives me insight into a very valuable insides source for some of her most amazing props and locations.

She has been carrying around a camera since the time of her earliest memories. With a mom in graphic design to learn from and an unending devotion to her craft to develop her skills, Estelle is sure to continue to take her photography and career to the next level!

#82 – Musician – Myles “Trufe” Robinson – 2016-06-28

Myles "The Trufe" Robinson on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Raised amongst generations of musicians, Myles “The Trufe” Robinson was destined to find the rhythm of his own musical beat. He uses his talent to dig into often difficult issues with a message that is always raw and real. Speaking to his most inner and honest emotions, his flows are smooth and captivating. However, it is his work ethic that has had him rising about the rest. There are no participation trophies handed out in the music industry, and Myles has put in every ounce of the hard work it takes to really make it and be taken seriously.

On this podcast, Myles talks about the importance of smart, chemistry-driven collaboration and the meaning of a hard day’s work. A young dad with more than one job, Myles is more determined than the average dreamer, and his hard work is paying off! Watch out for his upcoming projects—including “The Calm Before the Storm” with guest #80, Uzi 311.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Virginia Sinicki of the KVJ Show for a number of years now, and she's never ceased being an amazing source of girl power. She is a dedicated enthusiast of all things celebrity, gossip, and pot-stirring, and brings her unique comedic voice to our local airwaves every weekday morning on 97.9 WRMF. From good dirt and hilarious bits to charity events and KVJ Nation comradery, I've been a fan of all things KVJ for years. Virginia's counterparts, Kevin Rolston and Jason Pennington, have both graced this podcast in the past, and I'm so happy to now complete that trifecta!!

She has a true passion for what she does, crafting her skills over the years, honing her talents for promotional spots and event hosting, and giving of herself to her special charity, Little Smiles of Florida. She is a real example of working hard to gain success at what you do, and I was excited to sit down with her to share some sangria and inside industry scoop!!

#80 – RAPPER AND HIP HOP ARTIST – Uzochi “Uzi 311” Onyejuruwa - 2016-06-21

Rapper and Hip Hop Artist Uzochi “Uzi 311” Onyejuruwa on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Uzi 311, a.k.a., “Florida’s Finest” is one of the most driven people I have ever met. Discovering his talent for rap and hip hop at an early age, Uzi focused his mind toward developing it into a true craft. He is a masterful freestyle artist, purposeful writer, and commanding entertainer who is never finished improving himself. Catch Uzi at a show, and you are catching a glimpse of the future of hip hop.

On this podcast, Uzi gives up the goods on getting your foot in the door, working hard, and making it happen! He is equally charming and insightful, and it is hard to imagine anything but pure success in this gifted artist’s future.

#79 – REGGAE MUSICIAN – Paul Anthony II - 2016-06-10

Reggae star Paul Anthony II on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I had the pleasure of first meeting Paul Anthony at the invitation of a previous guest—Cohen Robinson—who was performing with a select group of local music talent he had gathered for his Sets in the West concert last month (catch episode #77). When I saw Paul perform, I was mesmerized. He oozes natural musicianship and was a polished performer. I was hooked and knew that I HAD to have him on the podcast!

On this episode, we talk about his “why”—what inspires him to make his music (particularly his original songs), the hustle behind booking gigs, and the work it takes to create his albums. Paul’s musical roots run deep with a father highly accomplished in the business, but he is working to pave his own path and legacy. With his band, the Reggae Souljahs, Paul is proving that south Florida continues to be a strong platform for a determined rising reggae star. Whether you want to be a musician or are just looking for the inspiration to follow your own dreams and curve your own cube, this episode is for you!!

#78 – YOGA INSTRUCTOR, MUSICIAN, AND MOTIVATOR – Jamie Scott Harris - 2016-05-27

Yoga instructor, musician, and mentor, Jamie Scott Harris, on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I met Jamie Scott Harris one random Friday when my son and I were out walking with a friend of ours and her dogs. He was meditating in the park and we eventually struck up a conversation about yoga, life, and purpose. By the end of it, I knew I had to have him as a guest! After pursuing a career in yoga instruction and finding himself in a new state, Jamie came to a new path of his journey through life. He discovered a transformational mentorship group called My Life My Power, and his life mission was suddenly and dramatically expanded. Coupled with Gratitude Training and his guitar, Jamie now leads a life focused on uplifting others in their own passions and dreams. (Sound familiar??)

In our podcast, Jamie delivers a very powerful message about finding and living your authentic self, sloughing off that which burdens you and is not working. He is full of enthusiasm about encouraging others to find what they are passionate about. In particular, he helps kids from all walks of life open up their minds to their true potentials and, in that same vein, talks about focusing one’s influence on how they can help others (“no longer ‘me’ but ‘we’”).

With a special musical treat included at the end, this podcast is perfect for anyone and everyone seeking life as a curvist!

#77 – MUSICIANS – The Cohen Robinson Experience – 2016-05-20

The Cohen Robinson Experience on the Curve the Cube Podcast

It was such a pleasure to catch up with my 8th guests (Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, and Myles “Trufe” Robinson) after watching them wow the crowd at the Sets in the West Neighborhood Block Party this past Friday off of 5th Avenue in Delray! Not only did they put on a fantastic show, but they also showcased an even wider variety of talent—this time including reggae (http://www.PaulAnthonyReggae.com) and spoken word (@ByrdPoetry) performers, a full band, and Uzi—a local rap artist who joined us on this episode.

We last recorded a podcast back on December 20th, 2014 after they opened up for Vanilla Ice; and, to see how much their musicianship has continued to accelerate was phenomenal. There was a quintessential Florida storm brewing that caused a power outage and eventually cut the set short; but, these guys didn’t miss a beat or let the energy drop. They made what could have been a complete bummer into a really beautiful moment.

This episode starts off in my car with Cohen and Uzi on our way to the post-performance celebration, and we end up at Salt Seven off Atlantic Avenue. We had a fantastic time kicking back over cocktails and calamari as they basked in the afterglow of the stage. They are true professionals and even truer friends. You’re going to love this podcast!! Be sure to listen all the way to the end for a couple of special treats and to look out for their EP coming out soon.

CTC Pod Squad Binging on the Curve the Cube Podcast

What starts with a bunch of randomness involving a bushel-full of presents from our Scotty Fusion morphs into a CTC Pod Squad episode about one thing we do best: binge!!

From Orphan Black and Breaking Bad to a minutes-long dissertation from Jay on the wonder that was Lou Ferrigno as the Incredible Hulk, the Pod Squad delivers laughs on the shows we love to binge watch. But, we don’t stop there. (What kind of binge session would THAT be?) We also talk about going hard on food and other delightful things.

#75 – NON-PROFIT – Darius Murray - 2016-05-03

Darius Murray, Clinical Mentoring Associate for FAU‘s CARD, or Center for Autism and Related Disabilities on the Curve the Cube Podcast

My 75th episode was spent in the delightful company of Mr. Darius Murray, Clinical Mentoring Associate for FAU‘s CARD, or Center for Autism and Related Disabilities. His passion for helping the most vulnerable in our community was obvious from the start—particularly when he talks about CARD’s iRise2 Mentoring program, which pairs young protégés (ages 11-21 or 22) with mentors from all walks of life. We discuss what the autism spectrum is, particular challenges, the rising statistics, vaccines, and more.

Darius has spent his life giving to others, having worked his way through the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County, AmeriCorps, and Big Brothers Big Sisters previously. So, he definitely had a lot to share with me about the importance of volunteerism generally.

Mostly, though, we talk about the iRise2 mentoring program. He is very clear that ANYONE can be a mentor (after passing a background check, of course!), and that current mentors come from all kinds of backgrounds, skillsets, and interests. And, if the mentor program is not quite someone’s cup of tea, there are so many other opportunities to positively and powerfully /impact youth with autism. Reach out to Darius by phone at 561-213-6936 or by email at dmurra23@fau.edu. Or, head to Autism.FAU.edu.

#74 – ENTREPRENEUR – Jeremy Pound - 2016-04-27

Marketing guru, author, and CEO of Juicy Results, Jeremy Pound, on the Curve the Cube Podcast!!!

My guest in (yes, really the) 74th episode features my new “professional compass,” Jeremy Pound, the CEO of Juicy Results where I recently started as their Internet Marketing Coordinator. Juicy Results. Known as the “Internet marketing agency for the Fortune Five Million, Jeremy and his Juicy Results crew specialize in solid web design and maintenance, SEO, and social media marketing. In running his company, Jeremy maintains a keen focus on company culture, and has created one like I’ve never seen, including first-day champagne bottles, a four-legged receptionist named Jackson, and an emphasis on continuous learning.

On my first day he introduced me to the Growth Mindset pioneer, Carol Dweck, by listening to her appearance on Bryan Allen’s podcast. It was astonishing to me how much I was able to connect with it, and I highly recommend that all of you listen to that on your next podcast binge. It’s a solid window into my “curvist” philosophy.
Speaking of podcasts, Jeremy hosts his own called the New Customer Machine, which he has started in conjunction with writing his next book of the same name. If you are a small business owner or are trying to expand your public profile for any other reason (ahem: artists, musicians, writers, inventors, etc…), you NEED to listen to TCM!! And, his last book, The Bootstrapper’s Guide to Search Engine Optimization, is a must-read for much of the same reason. So, pick up your copy today!!

Jeremy and I talk a lot about marketing and being an active business leader in our community, but also about his childhood creative endeavors, parental influences, and what he cringes at being called. (Spoiler alert: I TOTALLY call him it in the beginning. Ha!)

#73 – ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER – Jamaal “Visualist” Clark – 2016-04-11

Artist and Photographer Jamaal "Visualist" Clark on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I met Jamaal “Visualist” Clark at an art event put on by Exhibit Treal a couple of weeks ago where he was photographing the evening. And, it turns out that he was also a painter who had lent a couple of pieces to the event—pieces that I LOVED. So, I was excited to have Jamaal on the podcast.

We sat down and talked about a whole range of topics—from comic books to graffiti, film to digital, his time in school to being a teacher now himself. And, Jamaal was delightful throughout it all. He shared with me what the name “Visualist” means, the theme behind his heart, and what mark he wants to leave in the art world. There are a lot of great nuggets in this podcast for any aspiring artist or person visualizing their own dream!!

#72 – SPACE BRAINIAC – Barry Bohnsack - 2016-04-09

Barry Bohnsack (Program Planner for the Orion Spacecraft at the Kennedy Space Center) on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Barry Bohnsack, Finance and Program Planning expert for the Orion ALTO Program, joined me by phone for this truly special podcast—one that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time!

Barry works for Lockheed Martin, which is contracted to help build the Orion spacecraft, NASA’s deep space craft. Orion is on the brink of making history, heading next to the dark side of the moon to test human capacity to survive these types of missions. Once successful, Orion will be headed on a manned mission to MARS! How cool is that?!?!

Barry started out being into all things space and science at a very young age, and realized there was a path for him to parlay his business acumen into a career at the Kennedy Space Center. As an ambassador to the First Robotics Competition, Barry and I first met a few weeks ago, where stopped by to support my previous CTC Kids guests, the Poinciana Elementary School’s Taz Bots from episode 70. And, I was so excited when he agreed to be on.

On this podcast, Barry and I talk about the history of NASA, how he managed to live his dream of working there and his role as a project planner, the commonality of both being young astronautics and Lego lovers, and what the real benefits are to society garnered from space exploration. (Spoiler alert: LOADS of technological advances!!)

He’s a lovely guy and not only did he shed some light on the budgetary considerations of the space program that come into play, but he also gave me fresh perspective on one of my favorite categories of movies: sci-fi.

I’ve wanted someone involved with NASA on my podcast since day ONE, and this was every bit of a treat that I could have imagined it to be!!

Quick note:
We MAY have accidentally mixed up Scott and Mark Kelly’s names (but, what do you want from us; they are TWINS!); it was SCOTT that just came back from space.

#71 – NON-PROFIT  – JEFF DEMARIO - 2016-04-08

Jeff DeMario, CEO of Vita Nova Inc, on the Curve the Cube Podcast

This week’s guest is Jeff DeMario, Chief Executive Officer of Vita Nova—West Palm Beach’s answer to the challenges kids face as they transition out of foster care and into adulthood. Through their services and programs providing housing, education, counseling, and life skills coaching, Vita Nova helps the kids in their organization through a lot of heart, hard work, and commitment. (Side note: Everyone should check out their life skills videos. They are awesome!!)

“Vita Nova” means new life, and that is what this selfless group of people give to these kids—self-esteem and the desire and knowledge to become productive, social human beings through endless support and communications. Think back to when you were 18 and all the challenges you faced still finding yourself while also discovering the world. Add in hormones and other typical physical and social issues that you faced. Now, subtract the structured support system that you likely had. Chances are, you would not have fared so well. In fact, here are some stats:

Each year approximately 26,000 young adults "age out" of foster care in the United States, according to the Annie E Casey Foundation. Four years after aging out, 25 percent have been homeless, less than half have graduated from high school and more than 80 percent are unable to support themselves.

As Vita Nova celebrates their 10th anniversary, they need the community’s support (whether financial or volunteerism), and you can help in so many different ways! Just go to vitanovainc.org (http://www.vitanovainc.org/) or call 561-689-0035 and ask for Jeff or visit their thrift store at 3129 S Congress Ave, Palm Springs, FL 33461!

#70 – CTC KIDS – Poinciana Elementary’s Taz Bots (Lego League Kids) - 2016-03-29

CTC KIDS – Poinciana Elementary’s Taz Bots (Lego League Kids) on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I was DELIGHTED to meet with a group of kids who are competing in the First Lego League tournament circuit! Morgan Domeyer, Natasha Mayorga, Garrett Reardon, and Carsten Kjaerulff are from Poinciana Elementary and members of the “Taz Bots” team learning under the direction of their coach, Gloria Gibson. Each year, the FLL’s competitions focus on a different theme, and this year’s them is the Trash Trek Challenge.

The kids and I discuss their recent competition in February, what world challenges they’ve been asked to think through and help tackle, the awesomeness that is Lego, what they like about robotics and coding, and more! They’ve earned their way to the next level of competitions happening in May: Morgan and Natasha are representing the team headed to the FLL Razorback International in Arkansas, while Garrett and Carsten are representing the team headed to the FLL Open European Championship in the Canary Islands, Spain. So, they have a LOT to look forward to with their upcoming trips and competitions!

These kids are thoughtful, extremely bright, super sweet, adorable, and the future of robotics and engineering. I mean, just check out this website of their innovative video clips to see for yourself! You will enjoy meeting them as much as I did! They do need your help getting to this next round of competition, though, and are currently raising funds to help out with their trip. So, here’s how you can help:
GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/d5p3d

Send a check: Made out to Poinciana STEM and mail it to 1203 North Seacrest Blvd., Boynton Beach, Fla. 33435, or give to a parent of a teammate. Specify on the check memo “Tazbot Travel.”

#69 – ARTISTS AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS – Exhibit Treal – 2016-03-26

Jason "JaFleu" Fleurant and Tracy Guiteau of Exhibit Treal on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Treal= true + real

Utilizing the concept of “treal,” community leaders, Jason "JaFleu" Fleurant and Tracy Guiteau, are blazing a trail in our backyard to promote young, local talent—Exhibit Treal. They are both fine artists, and, as you’ll hear, Tracy also has a background in fashion design. But, they are also community leaders doing so much to share all they have learned in the bumps in the journey of an artist's life, be strong examples of fortitude, and really inspire and support the community's youth. Their Exhibit Treal events bring local artists together in a safe space free of the b.s. and typical pitfalls that can swallow up their talent, and instead give them a place to breathe and thrive.

In this podcast, Jason, Tracy, and I talk about all their events, why their mission means so much to them, and a little of what it's like growing up Haitian. It's a super fun, funny, and inspiring podcast!

And my little session at the end features Snoop Dog’s “Gin and Juice” as arranged by The Gourds. Don’t blame me for all the gritty language, blame Snoop Dog!!

So, sit back and relax and get ready to get treal! Enjoy!!

#68 – UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHER – Chris Gug - 2016-03-15

Chris Gug Gulielmo on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I recently had the absolute honor of sitting down with America’s premier underwater wildlife photographer, Chris Guglielmo (or simply "Gug," as he is known in most circles). Gug is one of those rare individuals who was gifted with a passion at an early age that he has continued to grow and excel at. He has been diving and photographing marine life since he was 15 years old, and in this podcast he talks about planning and conquering his shots, the secret to his vivid colors, and demystifying some common misconceptions.

The conversation took an unanticipated (yet, highly welcomed) turn toward a discussion on environmental conservation, and we discovered our mutual passion for animal rights and species preservation. Gug gets to travel the world in pursuit of the best shots, and he seems very genuine in his gratitude for living his dream.

#66 – PAINTER – Herbert Weintraub - 2016-03-05

Herbert Weintraub on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Raised in the Bronx, painter Herbert Weintraub captures the mid-century New York neighborhood charm in his art with such warm essence, you are immediately transported into his memory. And, now that he is living in Florida, his talents are right in our backyard.

In this podcast, I talk to Herbert about how he raised 6 kids, working hard every day to make it in life as an artist. He traveled through various art show circuits; and, though not always successful, he followed his inner passion and pressed on. Now, he is highly revered and accomplished, with his work included in some very impressive collections. Herbert is sweet, charming, and quite inspiring with a Norman Rockwell-esque style of work.

Visit his website and find him in a local gallery. Let him commission a piece just for you!

#64 – GUN SHOP OWNER – Ken Bratvogel - 2016-02-20

Ken Bratvogel is the owner and operator of a couple of gun shops—both here and in South Carolina—under the umbrella of Firearms Solutions.

To Ken, guns are a tool and a tradition, and he is a big advocate of safety and responsibility.

Fiber Artist Gin Blische on the Curve the Cube Podcast

The fuzzy, meticulously-detailed, and immediately nostalgic fabric sculptures by Gin Blische will leave you equally impressed and amazed!  I had heard through the West Palm Beach grapevine (i.e., Deshon Allen) that there was so much more to Gin than I knew.  So, when I did my digging and found out about all her talents, I just HAD to have her on!

In this podcast, Gin talks about how she discovered such a unique passion and how she has made these creations come to life!  We even talked about her days heading up bands, performing with her twin sister, and so much more.  We met up at Callaros Steak House and had an amazing time!

Follow her events and latest creations on her website; and, look for her to appear at Artisans on the Ave in Lake Worth soon!

#58 – MUSICIAN, DANCER, AND ACTOR – Tori Lynn Jones - 2015-12-29

Tori Lynn Jones on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I first met Tori Lynn backstage at WRMF’s No Snow Ball, where she and I geeked out together over seeing Adam Lambert walk down the hall toward us, and the rest was history! So, when I asked her to be on my podcast, I could think of no better place to record than in the shadows of where we met: outside of the Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca.

A naturally-gifted singer and performance artist, Tori Lynn won her shot at opening for Adam Lambert and Third Eye Blind at No Snow Ball by winning WRMF’s Dirty Voice Contest.

From early releases like "Labyrinth of Love" and "Nobody but Me" to her latest tracks, including “Mama Said,” “Young and Free,” and “Fading Lightz,” Tori Lynn has garnered an incredible following. And, she has great affection for her fans! Her motivation is spreading positivity and inspiration, along with raising awareness for an incurable disease that has affected her family: Cystinosis. Please visit Cystinosis.org to help support her cause!

A triple threat of singing, dancing, and acting, Tori Lynn is an absolute show-stopper! Connect with her at iamtorilynn.com and watch out for her upcoming college tour. And, of course, be sure to follow her all over social media:

#56 – FAITH – Sharif Elhosseiny & Rev. Wendy Tobias - 2015-12-18

Sharif Elhosseiny, President of the Islamic Center of Palm Beach, and Reverend Wendy Tobias of St. Joseph's Episcopal Church on the Curve the Cube Podcast

My ‪‎‪podcast‬ with Pres. Elhosseiny of the Islamic Center Palm Beach and Rev. Wendy of St. Joe's Unplugged was PHENOMENAL!! I thank them both so very much for participating. The goal going into the conversation was to explore how we as a people and our faiths have so much more in common than we do in difference; but, we ended up finding and connecting on so much more! Listen and learn about the TRUTH of ‪#‎Islam‬, not what the terrorists and those who fear-monger want you to believe.

"The word itself, 'Islam,' comes from the root word, 'salam,' which means, 'peace.'" Unfortunately, due to those in this world who have hijacked the Islamic faith and committed terribly heinous acts in its name, there are many people who fear ALL Muslims. Just recently, Sharif’s Center was the victim of that fear—having been vandalized in the middle of the night. In the vandal’s wake, the Center’s surrounding community offered cards, flowers, and other sentiments of support.

This last Saturday, Sharif hosted an open-house to condemn terrorism and invite questions of the public, featuring guest lecturer, Abu Muhammad Al-Maghribi, visiting Imam of Masjid Tawheed in Stone Mountain, GA. ("Masjid"means Mosque in Arabic.) I attended the open-house and arrived to a peaceful and beautiful community atmosphere that surrounded me with so many warm, smiling, happy, and welcoming Muslim faces! It was a packed house, and MANY people stepped up to the open mic with their questions. The visiting Imam answered them BEAUTIFULLY!! Here are a few of his quotes:
"[We] do not let a few terrorists hijack our faith, our ‪#‎Islam‬."
"Isis [and other groups] are renegades. They are criminals. They are terrorists."
"I don't blame the non-Muslims for their fear.... We hate [the terrorists] more than you do."

Thank you, ‪‎ICPB‬, for opening your doors to the public to better understand Islam!! It was also wonderful to meet Liz Balmaseda from The Palm Beach Post as she was covering the story, and I encourage you all to read it!!

Our cultures, faiths, and people DO have much more in common than they do in difference. Hear one another and curve the cube with open hearts and open minds. ‪ Love is greater than fear‬!!

#54 – NON-PROFIT (MADD) – Heather Geronemus - 2015-12-04

Heather Geronemus of Walk Like MADD and MADD Dash 5K on the Curve the Cube Podcast

On this episode, I caught up with an old high school friend from Pine Crest, Heather Geronemus, who is now the Chairwoman for the annual Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale 5K. She has dedicated the last several years of her life to the important cause of fighting drunk driving; and her efforts have taken her from south Florida to the halls of Washington D.C. Heather has earned achievement as a top fundraiser for Mothers Against Drunk Driving; but, her philanthropy doesn’t stop there. She has also extended herself to other organizations as well.

The topic of drunk driving is particularly poignant for this time of year, as drunk driving incidents tend to spike during the holidays. So, it was very important for me to have Heather on as a guest—especially now. She was gracious enough to talk about the personally tragedy that changed her life—losing her father, Robert, who was killed in 2009 by a drunk driver. She told his story, shared what that time was like for her, and walked through how she is changing such an extreme negative into such a powerful positive.

If you want to get more involved in charity work and philanthropy, better understand the epidemic of drunk driving or have been an offender of DUI, or just need the inspiration to get through your own rough time, this podcast will speak to you in particular. Heather also shares tips on how to get home safely, including peppering in some great conceptual themes that will get you thinking. (Hint: parents, you may want to write some of these down…!!)

Head to WalkLikeMADD.org/FortLauderdale and see how you can get involved, as a sponsor or participant. Her next event’s info is:
Where: Huizenga Plaza 32 East Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
When: 04/24/2016 @ 7:30 am
But, the time to create or sponsor a team and begin your fundraising is NOW!!

Curve the Cube - Thanks, Podcasting 2015

Curve the Cube - Thanks, Podcasting 2015 with Libsyn

As many of you may well now know, the purpose of Curve the Cube is to inspire people to pursue their dreams and passions--whether full time, part time, or simply as a hobby.

This is my "love letter" submission to Libsyn's "Thanks, Podcasting" project--a collaboration I am so excited, thankful, privileged, honored, and proud to be a part of!  Curve the Cube started as a small seedling of a concept, and I honestly did not know where I would take it; but, it has turned out to be more of where IT has taken ME!!  While driven to inspire others by interviewing those pursuing their dreams to share how they are doing it, I've realized that I am curving my own cube.  It's been a fantastic journey of meeting new people, professionally networking, and strengthening relationships, and I'm just getting started!

Curve the Cube celebrated it's one-year anniversary last month, and I promise it was just the first of many.

I must give a HUGE thank you to Libsyn, my guests, listeners, and sponsors for all their support!! Please visit my sponsors page for more info on these wonderful people.

See you on the other side of the curve!! Enjoy!

#52 – CTCKids – MUSICIANS – KRUSH - 2015-11-17

KRUSH Kids Band on the Curve the Cube Podcast!!!

To experience a KRUSH show is to feel something akin to a type of harmonic vertigo that you never want to end. Your ears LOVE what they are hearing, but your eyes compute it as too good to be true! A pre-teen classic rock band that oozes with talent, KRUSH consistently prompts double-takes from those who experience them for the first, second, and (often) every time. With individual accolades earned, these bandmates have combined their talents to impress judges and audiences alike, earning them two Battle of the Bands wins, a strong local fan base, and the attention of music legends!

KRUSH consists of:
• Nicholas (Nicky) Rothschild - Lead Guitarist (10)
• Ben Meller - Lead Singer (11)
• Landon Caballero - Bassist (12)
• Tristan Yeagar - Drummer (12)

But, don’t let their ages fool you. These kids, while quintessential roughhousing, fun-loving boys, are also highly committed to their craft—devoting hours each week to their music, the Band, and each other. To know them is to love them; but, to see them perform is to be in pure awe!

Head to their website to find out about their upcoming shows!!

#50 – NIGHTLIFE – Peter Agardy of Saltwater Brewery - 2015-10-27

Peter Agardy of Saltwater Brewery on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Welcome to my 50th episode, Curvists!!! I celebrated this milestone with Renaissance man, Peter Agardy—cofounder of Saltwater Brewery, fine artist, and environmentalist. Peter and I talk about what goes into the making of a craft beer; from the infused ingredients to the barrel the brew is stored in, it’s a real science. Peter described the roots of the brewery and how it got off the ground, all the fun events they plan there—including trivia nights, live music, Sunday brunches, and more. Head to their website to stay on top of their events! As an added bonus, a super yummy food truck is pretty much always parked outside; and, after you taste a brew or two, ask about their Brewery tours. The place is a real experience!!

However, the backbone of the Brewery is not only the creation of craft beer, but also their heart of charity and love of our oceans. Peter shares info on all the charities they support and why/how they give back to our community and environment.

On top of his other great talents, being an artist is in this man’s blood just as much as the salt life and love of craft beer. Peter’s fine art presents super vivid underwater scenes that make you feel transported into a snapshot of the ocean itself. Look it up on his website; while browsing, look for the video of his creating the painting now seen on the Brewery’s Screaming Reels can. So cool!!

After we wrapped up the podcast, Peter gave me a tour of the Brewery, and I got to see firsthand where all the deliciousness is made. This wasn’t captured by audio; but, you can head to the Brewery website and check their tour schedule. Go see it for yourself! At the very end of this episode, you’ll hear him walk me through a tasty flight of four of their craft beers. Mmmmm…

#49 – Multimedia Journalist – Jason Hackett - 2015-10-24

Jason Hackett of WPTV on the Curve the Cube Podcast

What a fun podcast this was with Jason Hackett of WPTV!!! Jason and I yuck it up throughout pretty much the entire thing! We met up at the Vivid Arts App kickoff party for previous guests, EGee Labs, at Le Rendez-vous, and simply had a great time. His spoke very affectionately about every crew he’s worked with, acknowledged that he has a responsibility on air as a black role model, and LOVED (not!) that I found out which fun kids’ spot he worked at in his early years.

We took a pretty serious turn early in the discussion to talk about Corey Jones—the latest case focusing the national discussion of excessive force by police. All of these stories from Zimmerman to Ferguson on forward have hit close to home for both of us; but, now it was actually in our own backyard. His coverage of the peaceful rally of family, friends, and other supporters of Corey Jones was exceptional, and his take on it from his various perspectives was highly insightful.

In the end, he turned the tables on me with a question that lead to a complete and utter GEEK OUT by us both, and I’m still stunned that he knew as much on that topic as I do. So, you’ll have to wait for that little nugget of podcast goodness. But, his facial expressions (and the adult beverage I was sipping on) had me laughing through the entire conversation. It was simply soooo fun!!

One note of correction: I meant to say “Downy,” not Febreeze!! (You’ll know what I mean when it gets there, lol.)

#48 – BEST-SELLING AUTHOR – Ali Brandon - 2015-10-20

Ali Brandon a.k.a. Diane A.S. Stuckart on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Texas transplant best known for her cozy mystery series, the Black Cat Bookshop Mysteries, Ali Brandon (a.k.a., Diane Stuckart) is a New York Times best-selling author! There are four books currently in the series, with the fifth book, Plot Boiler, to debut November 3rd:
1) Double Booked for Death, 2011
2) A Novel Way To Die, 2012
3) Words with Fiends, 2013
4) Literally Murder, 2014
5) Plot Boiler, out November 3rd, 2015

Just like her creator, protagonist Darla Pettistone is also a Texas transplant; but, she has found herself the heir of an independent bookstore housed in a New York brownstone and complete with a clever black cat full of attitude named Hamlet. In each book, a character meets an untimely end, and Darla and her sleuthing cat are on the case! I was so privileged to receive an advanced signed copy of Plot Boiler from Ali herself; I’m three chapters in and completely hooked!!! It is full of thoughtfully-crafted and colorful characters and is an absolute page-turner!!

Under the name Diane A.S. Stuckart, Ali has penned the award-winning Leonardo da Vinci historical mystery series (currently available as e-books) and has written several historical romances under other pseudonyms. Along with explaining the name changes in the podcast, Ali talks about what it takes to really sit down and write a book, what it was like to first get published, and how she became a best-seller!

Also related to this podcast:
Episode #43 – Gold Coast Paranormal Society
Episode #21 - The Street Team (featuring Estelle DeShocka)

Here’s the info on a couple of cool opportunities to meet Ali:
1) Halloween party and book-signing: Friday evening, Oct. 30th, from 6PM—8PM at the Murder on the Beach Mystery Bookstore in Pineapple Grove
2) Book-signing: Wednesday evening, Nov. 4th, from 7PM – 9PM at Carlstedt’s Floral Distributors in West Palm Beach

Head to Ali’s website to get the details on ALL her upcoming events. Find her on Facebook and Twitter as well! Though the Black Cat Bookshop Mysteries is a series, you can comfortably start with any of the books. So, be sure to pre-order Plot Boiler and help get her onto the best-sellers list again!

#47 – CONGRESSWOMAN – Rep. Lois Frankel - 2015-10-19

Congresswoman Representative Lois Frankel on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Congresswoman Lois Frankel’s dedication to public service was born of an innate passion within her to advocate for others. Through standing up to childhood bullies, protesting for social change in the 60s, and tackling the challenges in public office, Rep. Frankel has been on a mission. She has spoken up for people’s rights at every turn and believes strongly in the American dream being accessible to all. Representing her constituents true wishes is of the utmost import to her, and she has made keeping herself engaged in constant conversations with the public a top priority.

I personally found Rep. Frankel to be inspiring, passionate, and a very humble role model. She has a heart for leadership and a compass pointed toward justice that guides her every move. I was simply in awe of her and felt so honored to have had this inspiring conversation with her—particularly as the anniversary episode of the podcast!

#41 – MUSICIANS – Chemradery - 2015-09-05

Chemradery on the Curve the Cube podcast

When vocalist Gregory Scot Dyer first sat to collaborate with guitarist and seasoned touring musician Ivan Alexander, the chemistry was undeniable and Chemradery was born!  When I sat to talk to them for this podcast, that natural flow of friendship and collaborative, positive energy was obvious and very endearing.  Greg and Ivan are equally enjoyed in the middle of a crowd while they command a big stage as they are simply conversing face-to-face.  Their energy and presence draw you in and their music keeps you coming back for more!

Hear them share with us how they came together, what inspires their music, how they hustle through the scene of south Florida, and their future plans; it’s simply an episode not to be missed!!!  Please support this amazing band by downloading their music, coming out and seeing their shows, and following them on social media:

#40 – METEOROLOGIST – Sandra Shaw - 2015-08-25

Sandra Shaw on the Curve the Cube Podcast

As a main face of the WPBF Channel 25 Weather team, Sandra Shaw is a leader in the field of meteorology and an inspiration to determined young scientists everywhere!!

Sandra first found her passion in the news through investigative reporting—covering big stories from fraud to human trafficking; but, Sandra found her true purpose and passion in the midst of covering hurricane Katrina back in 2005.  So, on this 10th anniversary of that pivotal moment in her life (and, as we are facing Erika, our first major storm in 10 years), the timing of having Sandra on the podcast couldn’t be more appropriate.

Sandra Shaw is smart, engaging, vibrant, and a truly delightful guest.  Further, in addition to being an avid runner, tennis player, reader, and writer, she is also a mommy; so, needless to say, she is a woman on the move.  Sandra Shaw is determined to reach for the stars as much as she studies them—a true role model!!

Be sure to follow Sandra Shaw on her social media!

#38 – TEACHER – Sara Trovinger - 2015-08-08

Sara Trovinger on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Sara Trovinger discovered her creativity at an early age and was encouraged to explore it as much as she was trained in harnessing it.  She is a prolific musician and soon-to-be novelist—both of which make her pretty special.  However, what makes Sara so particularly lovely is that she has decided to utilize her talents for the care of our most vulnerable children; she is a special education teacher.

Working with children who are medically fragile, wide-ranging developmentally, and full of life that can be difficult to unlock is a practice that Sara admits is challenging and oftentimes heavy.  But, she brings the greatest level of joy and tenderheartedness to her classroom that one could imagine.  She is simply a wonderful human being, and her life is a true inspiration!

#37 – ARTIST & NOVELIST  – Carlos Aleman - 2015-08-01

Carlos Aleman on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Carlos Aleman is a Cuban-American man hailing from New York who makes his home now in south Florida—pursuing his creative passions of art and writing.  He is prolific in his art production—it simply lives within him; and, his novels have been not only well-received, but critically acclaimed!  I find his scope of talent as fascinating as someone who can play a bunch of instruments—it’s simply part of his DNA.

The concept of his upcoming art exhibit is Dark Chocolate—essentially exploring the beauty of our differences that really make us all the same.  It’s simply a beautiful message, and I hope everyone heads out to his exhibit!  It will be on August 28th starting at 6:30pm at the Sunrise Civic Center.

You can find the info on his upcoming exhibit here! (Cosplay wear is encouraged!)  And, for more info on his critically-aclaimed novels, head here!

#35 – CHRISTIAN HIP HOP – JDUB (Jeff Williams) – 2015-07-19

JDUB (Jeff Williams) on the Curve the Cube Podcast

After an adolescence of bad choices mixed with blossoming hip hop stardom, JDUB (Jeff Williams) found his faith and matched his message to his music.  His natural talent has gained him recognition as a gifted MC, nominated in 2013 for “Best Gospel Hip Hop Artist of the Year” by the South Florida Gospel Music Awards and winning 2013 Song of the Year for “Superstar.” His music is simply REALLY GOOD!!!

Meeting and talking to JDUB was a real treat, because he’s not only pursuing one passion in his life, but has figured out how to beautifully marry TWO: his music and his message of the power of God to change lives.  He is as equally humbled by his success as his is driven to expand his music’s reach.  Be sure to head to his website and sign up for his newsletter.  His next album, simply called “The Five Album,” is hopefully dropping this year, and his newsletter is a great way to find out first!  Trust me, JDUB gave me a lengthy preview of the album, and every bit I heard was AMAZING!!! So, you DON’T want to miss it!!  And, also be sure to follow him on social media (@JDUB561):

#33 – TRANSGENDER – Drew - 2015-06-20

Drew, Female to Male Transgendered Individual on the Curve the Cube Podcast

My dear friend, Drew, opens up with me on this podcast about his journey as a female-to-male transgendered individual—the physical, financial, social, and emotional impact and struggles the transgender life brings.  Simply speaking, it is not easy.  Imagine all the rigors and stresses of everyday life compounded and magnified by the very body you are in being at odds with both your mind and society’s expectations.  Every step out into the world to tackle those everyday tasks becomes an awkward dance of considerations: how you dress, how you act, who to talk to, etc…--all because your gender identity is more complex than the XX versus XY boxes we have been accustomed to.

The purpose of Curve the Cube is to inspire people to pursue their dreams by interviewing and picking the brains of those who are living their dreams.  Typically, topics of the podcast stay within the realm of professional or hobby-like passions: owning a business, supporting yourself as an artist, etc…  However, I can think of no dream pursuit that requires more literal blood, sweat, and tears than that of a transgender person trying to find their way into the right body and out of the shadows.

Most of us are very lucky.  The journey into a body that physically matches the mind inside is usually accomplished for us in the privacy of a womb—without any effort on our part whatsoever.  For some, though, that journey is public and arduous.  I can’t thank my friend, Drew, for not only sharing his story, but also being so open and honest.  He has asked to remain anonymous due to his professional pursuits, which is just an honest reflection that there is more understanding and acceptance to come from our society.

This is definitely the longest podcast episode thus far, though I tried to edit it down for time as much as possible.  The message is just so important and involves so many elements I never before considered, that I wanted Drew’s story to be told as fully as I could.  I encourage all to hear the whole episode!

For transgender resources, this page on GLAAD’s website is a good place to start.  I hope we all end with compassion…

When Janice first moved to south Florida from New York, she was fully surprised to find that the natural hair movement making afros and dreadlocks a nondescript commonality in the Boroughs hadn’t yet found its footing down here.  Janice sought to change that.  Parlaying her talent for styling natural hair into independent shop ownership with such a bold initiative in mind was no easy course to navigate; but, such nonsense doesn’t stop Janice. 

In the podcast she discusses the challenges that came with being on her own and the moment she realized, though already on good footing, she had to listen to her gut and majorly shift course.  She turned her whole game plan for her salon on its head (no pun intended) and now couldn’t be happier!

Always purpose-seeking and driven, Janice Massey is a force to reckon with; she is an inspiration to small business owners and independent women alike!  She not only now owns her own salon, but has also started a t-shirt line and sells consignments.  This girl is unstoppable!  Find and follow her journey on:

#26 – FISHERMAN – Paul Varian - 2015-04-24

Paul Varian

 

From a dream conceived to a life lived, Paul Varian is a clear case of following a passion and making a career out of it! When he was a kid, Paul told his folks that he wanted to grow up to catch fish--and, catch fish he does!

 

Splitting time between spear fishing and guiding reef tours during down times, Paul has figured out how to make his dream a reality.

 

He gets to spend every day in the salt and sun if the sea--catching every range of Florida fish. And, some of his catches are truly hell. Let's face it, some fish can be pretty badass, and when in the water, we're in their territory. Couple that with a water pressure environment our squishy human bodies weren't built for, and you have a recipe for potential disaster.

 

The Weather Channel capitalized on the high-seas drama of spear fishing last year with Catching Hell--and, Paul was cast as a star! Though a second season is currently on hold, watch out for any announcements on Facebook or WeatherChannel.com!  (You can also find old episodes on Ora TV!)

 

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by Little Smiles of Florida!  Little Smiles helps kids right here in our own neighborhoods who are struggling through something that no kid should ever have to deal with.  They work with the professionals closest to them to identify ways to put the little smiles on their faces.  Whether donating Christmas presents to children in shelters, bringing toys to children in local hospitals, raising money for a converted vehicles, or whatever else they can do… they do!  But, they do it with YOUR help.  Please donate to their wonderful cause!

#25 – ARTIST – Jason “JaFleu” Fleurant - 2015-04-25

Jason "JaFleu" Fleurant Block

 

A child of Haitian immigrants doesn’t often believe that a sustainable living as an artist is even conceivable. But, Jason "JaFleu" Fleurant is a prime example of a person breathing a dream to life one creative step at a time. And, it’s not all about courange for Jason (“JaFleu” as he is known in artistic circles).  No, it is simply his undeniable NEED to paint—to create—to express.  And his joy comes from living his emotions out loud on canvas for all the world to see and be moved by.

 

A community man, he finds ways to not only trail blaze for the people around him, but to inspire children to break to the expectations of their own lives.  He opens up their eyes and minds to possibilities, and opens their hearts to their dreams.

 

JaFleu is an inspiration to his neighborhood, the Haitian community, and humanity as a whole!  Find and follow him on:

Zach Rance Block

Zach Rance is a great example of a person living out loud, in the moment, and 100% as himself.  From deciding to enter the world of “reality” television in the Big Brother house to now putting much of his life on a live stream through younow.com, what you see with Zach is what you get.  He speaks his mind, wears emotions on his sleeve, and doesn’t give a crap what people think.

 

What I find most fascinating about Zach, however, is how determined he is to build his own successes and how he has thought outside the box to do it!  Though he didn’t strategize for his #BB16 afterlife before going into the house, through using social media and capitalizing on his creative thinking, Zach has managed to maintain and build his online following of fans, affectionately referred to as “Zacharoos.” On this podcast, he shows these fans much love, talks a bit about his family, lets out some feelings about the House, and much more.  Though his passion may come across a bit rough around the edges, Zach is a true sweetheart with a genuine spirit.

I’m a big fan of Zach’s belief of being himself and working hard to keep his momentum going.  With his putting out music, entertaining his fans daily, and crafting his debut book, it is hard to imagine looking back several years from now and not seeing Zach as a fully accomplished, self-made man.  He is on a skyrocket right to the top! Find him on SnapChat, Twitter, and Instagram as @RanceyPants!

#23 – RADIO – DrunkCast with Kevin Rolston at the South Florida Fair - 2015-01-16

Kevin Rolston at SFF

 

Holy cannoli, #KVJNation!  I am sooo happy to bring you this anniversary treat: a BONUS Curve the Cube podcast episode especially for you!!  We started a campaign a year ago to bring back our favorite morning radio show, the KVJ Show, and WON!  So, though this audio was recorded at the South Florida Fair back in January, its release (and Kevin Rolston’s permission to finally do so) is just perfectly timed!  So, what happens when you combine Kevin, a voice recorder, and a fiesty KVJ Nation interviewer named Shawntai?  GREAT audio!

 

After hearing this, there should be no more doubt or naysaying as to the Show’s motivation (and NEED) to make a move to Miami. As ill-fated as it was, Kevin makes it clear that it was the Show’s and their fans’ BEST option.  In the end, we got them back to the Palm Beaches.  So, that other broadcasting company really missed out.  But, thank you to Palm Beach Broadcasting and 97.9 WRMF for bringing back our crazy radio family. Kevin chants for fan and makes a really incredible deal with KVJ Nation Terry that you won’t believe!!!

#22 – SINGER – Candice Hoyes - 2015-04-14

Candice Hoyes Block

 

Candice Hoyes is a classically trained jazz singer born in Jamaica, raised in Florida, and exploding onto the New York jazz scene.  Equally elegant and strong, Candice’s voice is charismatic and intriguing; and, in her debut album, On a Turquoise Cloud, she sings like a melodic ribbon carefully woven through and dancing with the big band jazz instruments accompanying her.

 

Having known her since we were kids, it was always a privilege to see and hear Candice perform.  Her voice is simply magnificent; but, catching up with her now was amazing!  For her album, she didn’t just choose easy standards or even the most known songs from her muse, Duke Ellington.  Nope…  Not this Candice Hoyes!  She did her research and found some rare Duke Ellington tracks that could express her musical journey in an innovative way.  The album is complete in its offerings of a fully-executed concept, highly talented and accomplished instrumental accompaniments, and stunningly eclectic vocals.  On this podcast, she talks about the experiences that developed her as an artist, her choices in developing her voice and album, and the adventures through the New York music scene.

 

She isn't just out of this world; Candice Hoyes is #?OnATurquoiseCloud! Be sure to check out her debut album on iTunes or Google Play!

#19 – RADIO – Jason Pennington - 2015-03-19

Jason Pennington Block

 

Episode #19 features Jason of the KVJ Show! This radio personality truly is an ultimate example of taking life by the horns and riding that thing to the fullest! He became a member of the show through a random chance at a contest, and the rest is history!

 

The KVJ Show

 

Jason brings the weirdness level of the show up several notches--doing stunts involving everything from a pelican to a MASSIVE container of popcorn. (These two were never in the SAME stunt; so, no worries.)

 

He wraps his personal hobbies into the show, as well. Jason has a production company he calls Sasquatch Recordings through which he releases the most peculiar, quirky, and ultimately funny and entertaining music, videos, and movies. (Yours truly dies in one of them; so check out his stuff, also looking up "The Value Meal Killah and the Snack Pack," to see it for yourself!)  His "Elf on the Shelf" "tribute" song, "What Does the Elf Say?," even garnered him some out-of-state death threats!

 

The Value Meal Killah and the Snack Pack performing at Beer Fest 2014 in West Palm Beach, FL.

 

He goes big every time, plays hard, and pushes boundaries, but always with the best of intentions and heart.

 

Catch the KVJ Show weekday mornings from 6-10 on 97.9 WRMF. You should also download the WRMF app, so you can listen to past shows and watch/listen to their hilarious KVJ TV content.

 

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by Sol Experiences—the Florida events company to enhance your SOLcial life!  Curve the Cube’s producer, Jaime, has personally been on a Palm Beach Gardens pub crawl and party-limo driven day trip to Key West that were both SUPER fun!!!  Stay posted on their events, and if you mention Flint Stone Media, you will receive a discount!

 

Enjoy!

 

(On, and, FYI, Kevin Rolston of The KVJ Show did our pilot episode. So, look it up!)

#18 – PODCASTING AND MULTIMEDIA – Adam Rymer, President of Nerdist – 2015-02-28

Adam Rymer of Nerdist Block

 

It's the PRESIDENT of Nerdist Industries, Adam Rymer, and I couldn’t have been more excited to talk to him!!  He grew up down here in sunny south Florida, but has seen his career skyrocket—including making The Hollywood Reporter’s 2007 “Next Generation” list of the top 35 entertainment executives under the age of 35.  Adam joined Nerdist a year ago and is positioned as one of the top cutting edge trend setters for this next phase of entertainment’s digital age.

 

On this podcast, Adam discusses the business strategies he’s employing to grow Nerdist from a podcast by Chris Hardwick, Matt Mira, and Jonah Ray, to a fully integrated and dynamic media enterprise.  The details he shares for cross-branding, cross-marketing, and overall business mechanics are pure GOLD!!!  Even better (for me, at least), he also gives great tips for building a podcast!!!

 

His career started out in management consulting; but, after a journey of soul-searching, Adam realized his passion was in entertainment.  And, the rest is history!  He is not only shifting the gears on multimedia trends, he’s exploring film production.  (Check out his film The Rover, 2014.)  If you are a business person, an entertainer, in marketing, a podcaster, or just have an overall interest in super cool people, this podcast is for you!

 

I am a HUGE fan of Nerdist.  In fact, that podcast was my inspiration for starting Curve the Cube.  So, I truly can’t thank Adam enough for doing it!!!  Pine Crest Panthers for LIFE!!!  Enjoy!

#17– SMALL BUSINESS – The Pizza Girls – 2015-02-13

The Pizza Girls Block

You can take The Pizza Girls out of New York, but you can't take the New York out of their pizza! 

Transplanted in the 90s, Jennifer and Phoebe promised West Palm the most authentically New York pizza experience. They soon realized their newfound love of Florida, and have been delivering on that promise ever since! Located on the end of Clematis Street, where the fountains meet the heart of downtown, the Pizza Girls restaurant has THRIVED!!!

Along with their hard work and successes building a small business, the Girls have reaped the benefits of their location's rejuvenation and vibrancy. There is always something (or, oftentimes, several somethings) going on just steps from their doorway. And, their patrons LOVE it!! (Trust me: there is nothing better at an outdoor festival or on a party night than a slice of their Hawaiian, a personal fave.)

Jennifer and Phoebe really opened up on this podcast, too. Not only do they offer stories that every business can relate to and gain from, but they also delve into some areas of their personal lives that I was so honored to hear about.

So, sit back and enjoy this podcast. Like their pizza, the Girls offer up every ounce of realness that the New York in them can supply!!

So, head to their website, www.PizzaGirls.com.  You can literally click on their images to have them say “Hello”!

Shock Pop Comic Con Block

The 2015 Shock Pop Comic Con was off the CHAIN, and I got some FANTASTIC audio!!!  I got to meet stars from some of my FAVORITE iconic movies and TV shows, like American Horror Story, Gremlins, The Karate Kid, Sons of Anarchy, Friday the 13th, and more!!!  Oh… my… gosh… my mind is still blown!!!

I asked Naomi Grossman about transitioning between two completely different seasons on American Horror Story, met Ari Lehman, the ORIGINAL Jason Voorhees ON Friday the 13th, got an autograph of Ralph Macchio for a friend, and did sooooooo much more!  I even picked up a light-up Hello Kitty t-shirt.  I mean… it was INSANE!!!

This was my virginal Comic Con experience, and I’m so glad my brother got to come in town to experience it with me.  We had an absolutely incredible time!!!  We even got to talk to Dr. Who AND witness an interview with G.E.A.R. Radio and Robert Englund up close and personal.  It was AWESOME!!!

Enjoy these bits and clips from my interactions with iconic celebrities and impressive cosplayers, then beginning dreaming of and planning YOUR trip to SPCC.  This experience was definitely one for my bucket list!!

#14 – Musician – EDM Artist – DJ John Hitta – 2015-02-11

DJ John Hitta BlockToday’s podcast episode features the rising south Florida EDM artist, DJ John Hitta!!! Not just a disc jockey, but an out-of-this-world performer, no one is precisely sure where DJ John Hitta originates from; but, we at Curve the Cube feel so honored to have him creating our music beds!!!  He is definitely a uniquely-styled EDM artist, and, with his intergalactic apothecary of rhythmic instinct, he manages the mood of a crowd, engages all senses, and puts on a real show!  To see him perform live is a real treat!!

So, when the man behind the mask agreed to take the time out of his hectic schedule to talk to me about just how he creates his craft, I was all in!!  We ended up only being able to offer you guys a podcast over the phone due to scheduling conflicts (and I really try to avoid “phone”casts), but it was well worth it!  He talks not just technique, but inspiration—the real spirit of EDM.  He shares details about his growth in the industry, how he has journeyed from being a radio DJ to EDM artist, and what defines his music today.

Now, DJ John Hitta is facing the opportunity of a lifetime! He has a chance to represent Florida at the Hard Rock Rising festival in Barcelona, Spain!!  This would be an amazing opportunity for him to play to a crowd of over 60,000, and it is up to all of his fans (like YOU!) to get him there.  So, check out his music on ReverbNation or SoundCloud (some of which is FREE to download).  Then, click here to quickly cast your vote!  Seriously, it’s super easy…

Send DJ John Hitta to Hard Rock Rising!

Let’s do this, EDM family!!!  Let’s rise up as #HittaNation!!!  And, don’t forget to follow him on Twitter to keep up with his show schedule. Happy Friday the 13th, everybody!!

#12 – Reporter for The List – Dan Corcoran - 2015-01-21

Dan Corcoran Block

Meet Dan Corcoran--one of the reporters for south Florida's division of Scripps' The List! Coming from a hard-hitting news background traveling the country, Dan's "Around South Florida" segments are a window into how he is getting his south Florida footing through some really random local finds!

The List is an entertaining trending topics show with funny and often nostalgic pop culture references sprinkled throughout. Through their locally-based "Around Town" segments, each market gets a more in-depth focus on its own backyard.  The show's motto is "There’s the news… and then there’s THE LIST."; and in south Florida, that often gets uniquely interesting. Dan's "Around South Florida" segments allow him to explore the local eateries, events, and other goings-on that make south Florida so captivating; and, Dan’s reporting is super sweet and charming!

Enjoy his podcast and then tune in to The List weeknights! In south Florida, that would be on WPTV Channel 5 at 7pm. Otherwise, check your local listings!

#10 – ACTOR – Amir Arison – 2014-12-26

Amir Arison Block

This tenth episode of the Curve the Cube podcast features Amir Arison, also known as "Aram" on NBC’s The Blacklist!!! I had the privilege of going to high school with Amir and getting to see his theatrical potential ignite from an early age. He was simply a STAR!

To watch Amir’s career really blossom and take off over the last several years has been UNBELIEVABLY exciting!! He has breathed life into roles on stage in such productions as The Muscles in Our Toes and on screen with appearances in hits like Jane Wants a Boyfriend, Girls, American Horror Story, Homeland, and Law & Order SVU.  His role as the enthusiastic and precise, yet nervous and self-conscious, Aram on The Blacklist has solidified his national spotlight.  Amir’s years of experience in the entertainment industry have already afforded him a great deal of wisdom, sage advice, and hilarious stories, and he shares so much of all that right here.

Talented, handsome, funny, and charming, Amir is on a bright rise to the top as both an actor and a promising director.  I am so grateful that, on his way up, he stopped by the podcast to reminisce and lend us a dash of his humor and wit to this episode.  Amir lives in New York, but is a Florida boy at heart, and he was so gracious to open his parents’ home to me during the holidays for this podcast.  You are in for a great mix of both laughs and insightful nuggets!

Enjoy!

#9 – NEWS – Shushannah Walshe – 2014-12-23

Shushannah Walsh Block

Raised in south Florida, Shushannah Walshe has become a strong, driven presence on the national political scene.  She has previously reported for Fox News and the Daily Beast; but it was her co-authorship of “Sarah From Alaska: The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar” with Scott Conroy that propelled her into the spotlight.  The book relates the aftermath of McCain’s surprise pick of Palin as his running mate and how the Palins navigated the sudden attention and scrutiny.

She has seen behind the scenes of the political curtain and lived to tell about it; and in this podcast, Shush shares what it’s like working in the political arena, being a writer and reporter, how she has accomplished her goals, and what she is most looking forward to with her career.

So, sit back and enjoy this very interesting and insightful interview!

#8 – MUSICIAN – Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, & The Trufe – 2014-12-20

Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, & The Trufe Block

This super-short podcast is my first multi-guess-cast and features three extremely talented up-and-coming hip-hop artists, Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, & The Trufe!  Cohen and The Trufe (a.k.a., Myles Robinson) are brothers; but, they have been friends with Patrick since they were kids.  So, they consider themselves all brothers.

Whether working together on their group or doing their own individual projects, Cohen, Patrick, and The Trufe always support each other—and tonight was just another example.  Cohen Robinson had one a singing contest that gave him the opportunity to open for the Vanilla Ice Block Party, and Patrick and The Trufe collaborated with him on the performance.

This podcast was recorded backstage right after their set, where it was crazy loud, energetic, and surreal.  What an honor to be able to speak with and get to know a little bit about these guys after such an awesome moment in their lives!

Enjoy!

#6 - BLOGGER – Aaron Wormus (aGuyonClematis) - 2014-12-06

Aaron "aGuyOnClematis" Wormus Block

I kicked off this second series of the Curve the Cube podcast with a guy who brings us sooo much great inside-track south Florida content!  Aaron Wormus created the Twitter handle, aGuyOnClematis, to chronicle the development of the West Palm Beach waterfront—and it has turned into SO much more!

On this podcast, Aaron talks about why he brings us so many daily glimpses into the goings-on in West Palm Beach—with nearly exclusive insight into the cultural and entertainment hotspot that is Clematis Street.  He divulges one of his inside tips to getting his info, shares his favorite spots, and makes it clear that, if it’s going on on Clematis, it’s going on in his Twitter account.

And, BONUS: this podcast ended with a total surprise podcast crash by the Pizza Girls themselves, Jennifer and Phoebe!  This was definitely a super fun podcast!!

Enjoy!!!

#5 – CTCKids – AUTHOR & ENTREPRENEUR – Houston Gunn - 2014-11-25

Houston Gunn Block

This fifth episode of the podcast is the second “phone”-cast, and features young author and rising entrepreneur, Houston Gunn!!!  Houston is just 17 years old, and has already authored TWO books on reaching for success, started his own publishing house, met Donald Trump, and has a goal of graduating high school as a millionaire!  He’s dabbled in real estate and private lending, while also moved to Nashville from Seattle in order to cultivate his musical career.  Have I mentioned that he has yet to graduate from HIGH SCHOOL?!?!?!  INCREDIBLE!!!

The amount of insight this kid has already developed is PHENOMENAL, and he has some really choice pieces of advice for others looking to succeed at making their own way.  He talks motivation, hard work, overcoming fear, and pursuing your passions.  There is just so much great advice gleamed from this young man in this podcast, its awe-inspiring; and, whether young or old, everyone can learn something from this guy!

I am so jazzed for all the possibilities that this podcast has inspired, too.  This kid is so impressive, I’m now considering producing a special series of “next generation” podcasts for other amazing young up-and-comers.  There is something particularly exciting about their energy and effervescence!!

Enjoy!

#3 – NEWS  - Jay Cashmere - 2014-11-12

Jay Cashmere Block

Wow! Jay Cashmere sure brought a lot of positivity and great energy to this podcast! Talk about a fun, sweet guy. Jay has been a part of south Florida’s news scene for nearly 14 years now (Happy Almost Anniversary, Jay!), and is currently an anchor for both WPTV News Channel 5 and WFLX Fox 29.

In our chat, Jay gives some really inspirational insights into how he pursued his career and was able to break into such a huge, hot market.  He is so appreciative of the opportunities that being a newsman in south Florida have brought him, takes every opportunity to give back, and shies away from the “local celebrity” label. His love of the news led him to an opportunity to explore his other passion—aviation; but, what happened that day is something you just have to hear for yourself!!

Enjoy this high-energy, insightful podcast and catch Jay weeknights as the anchor of WPTV (NBC 5) at 5:30 and WFLX (Fox 29) at 10pm.  Also, he also usually has a segment on his co-anchor, Shannon Cake’s, show, The Now, which airs on WPTV weekdays at 4pm.

Thanks, Jay!!!

#2 – ENTERTAINMENT - Andrea Ocampo – 2014-10-25

Adrea Ocampo Block

This podcast was sooo much fun to record! Andrea really came to have fun!! She has been in the entertainment industry for 15 years, and has had a breadth of experience and successes. She is currently (amongst many other things) the arena host and reporter for the Florida Panthers and is spreading her wings in the world of acting. Andrea has touched just about every corner of the entertainment industry, and now is focused on growing her company and relaunching her blog, Media-Gypsy, which focuses on helping others pursue THEIR dreams.

We sat down with some wine, and she got REAL!!  Andrea talks about her entry into the industry through dancing and cheering for the Miami Dolphins, the struggles of coming up, and her future goals. We got into the pressures that women face in particular in entertainment, the pitfalls that people in general often face, and what it really takes to keep the gears running toward success.

She was a delight, seriously funny, and allowed me the opportunity to totally geek out with her about horror movies and zombies. Simply stated, Andrea was SO MUCH FUN, and I can say I’ve walked away from this podcast with a new friend!!!

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by D’Or Fashion, a south Florida-styled, high-fashion boutique store with several locations throughout the Miami area. Follow them on Instagram to find their special promo codes!

#1 - RADIO - Kevin Rolston of the KVJ Show - 2014-10-15

Kevin Rolston

This is the PREMIER episode of Curve the Cube, and in this episode, we feature Kevin Rolston of the KVJ Show—a big dog of morning radio here in south Florida!  I feel privileged to call Kevin both a friend and mentor.  So, I am very grateful that he graced the Curve the Cube podcast’s pilot episode!

And, Kevin really brings it!  After surprising me with a bit of beat boxing, Kevin gets into the evolution of radio in his life (including just how he broke into the biz), some hilarious coming-of-age tales (which show why he needs to call his mother more often), and the hit to his chest that changed his life.  He also talks about life in and on radio, adding a story that really made me tear up.

I must apologize in advance, though.  Muddle through the moments of bad sound quality mixed with my obnoxious laugh.  It’s worth it!  There are so many gems in this podcast!!

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by the KVJ Show on 97.9 WRMF right here in Palm Beach County. Tune in to hear Kevin, Virginia, and Jason’s hysterical morning banter and bits that bring the funniest content in radio entertainment by and for south Florida.  Listen to them weekday mornings from 6-10.  They live here, too!

Promo Code Info:

Head to LittleSmiles.org to order your next KVJ Show or KVJ Nation t-shirt.  Enter the promo code “CurvedSmiles” now through November 10th and receive 10% off.  All proceeds go to Little Smiles of Florida!
