Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews AJ / Skater & Videographer (Vimeo) / Trader Joe's, 23rd & 6th, NYC.

"How'd you get into skating in the first place?"
"Through Mark Gonzales, The Gonz, the most legendary skater of all time, he changed skating once it collapsed with the marketing industry, he just came out of nowhere and just sparked it and became a legend, he's still skating he's like 50."
"And when was this?"
"I was about 10 years old and it was 2005, I was cruising around with my cousins around Tompkins Square Park, aka known as the TF, short for 'training facility', it's a big open field where we just chill out, zone out and we focus on our tricks and we just do as we please and I was just cruising along Tompkins and I all of a sudden bumped into him and he was like with his quirky voice, 'Hey if you're interested in skating I'm gonna leave my board at Autumn skate shop if you want to pick it up or something, I don't know it's up to you, I don't want this thing it's dead.' [Laughs] And that's just skating right there, that's how you always start off, you preserve, take advantage of what you got and you work your way up."

"I work a slaving job at UPS where I lift boxes and do not pursue my dream at all, on the side I pursue my dream, however recently I got injured at work and due to injury I cannot work, so now I think this is the universe's way of saying 'Hey I know you wanted to just settle on life and do bullshit forever but you can't, so if you don't follow those dreams you're going to regret it. Opportunity, I present you.' So I have to, I really don't have any other choice."

"Why is it called EIGHTY Magazine?"
"It's named after the bus route, which is the bus that I've been taking for 20 years, [Marinell and I] figured it's a great route because it covers a lot of Jersey City and we want to be that for Jersey City to, we want to be able to cover and write about all sorts of things that are relevant to what it's like to live in Jersey City right now."

"How were you able to make EIGHTY into a real magazine, how'd you know how to do that?"

Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews ChicPeaJC / Culture Blogger (@chicpeajc | CHICpeaJC.com ) / Sub-City Junction, Hoboken.

"I was working in the corporate world, I was director of training of tech company, I was there for 7 years, and I felt like I was empty inside, I needed to write, I needed to photograph, I wanted to do fashion [for the blog] mostly and then I decided at the last minute to focus on Jersey City and it blew up."
"What was key to that happening?"
"Being consistent and being real and staying true to myself and being always honest, and also being positive, so I never write about anything negative, there's so much negativity in the world that I wanted my blog to be something really light and uplifting and help people connect with each other in the community."

Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews Patty / Children's Book Author (@mspattyg | Website) / Sub-City Junction, Hoboken.

"I was watching my fiancé, Patrick, and our dog, Fenway, interact and play and he was very childlike with the dog and I was like, 'You know, I'm gonna come up with a story about the two of you.' And he dared me to, and next thing I knew I had a manuscript in my hand."
"Wow, and when was this?"
"This was last year, this time last year."
"What else were you doing at the time, were you working?"
"I do, I work in television at MLB network, which is Major League Baseball, I do some editing and scheduling so in that time I found a space to just write this book."
"What was it like writing it?"
"It was fun, I got to go into my imagination as deep as I possibly can and just come up with something I thought a child would like, and I would bounce my idea off of my 7 year old niece and she approved so I went with it."
"How'd you make the time to write a children's book while working?"
"Oh wow I would just have a notebook with me at all times, so on my lunch break, if I was stuck in traffic, I'd be writing, any time an idea would come to my mind I'd jot it down or use my notes on my phone, and then I meshed it all together at night before bed, I spent an hour writing before bed."
"Were there any points along the way where you felt like quitting?"
"Oh absolutely, every time I'd finish a chapter I'd say 'Oh my god this isn't any good, these kids aren't gonna like it and I somehow found the strength to keep going because it was a dream of mine so I said, 'It's now or never, if I don't do it now then I'll probably never do it' And I'm so glad I did."

Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews Hantz / Marketing Specialist at Google (@HantzFevry) / Bryant Park, NYC.

"What's driving motivating you, what's keeping you going?"
"The fact that I want to accomplish something, that I want to move forward and be successful."
"Where does that drive come from?"
"From the inspiration I got from my mom. I grew up in Haiti, a country where you see not only poverty but misery, which is completely worse, and I saw mom working every day to make the impossible possible, so in Haiti you'll face a lot of challenges and I never saw my mom stopping and say, 'Ok it's too difficult I have to stop.' No, she always continued to work and face every challenge and continue to move forward, so I'm saying, 'Ok if she did that I can also do great.'"

Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews Neal / Web Marketing Product Designer (Bounce Exchange) / Bryant Park, NYC.

"I hated [working in finance]. It was the worst. Really long hours, it wasn't very fulfilling, I didn't care for it and I didn't like a good portion of the people I worked with. I was always looking for a way out."
"So how'd that play out?"
"I thought about staying in finance in a different capacity but ultimately I found that I wanted to go out there and venture on my own and do the startup thing. I think I'm more of a person that likes a little bit of an unstructured environment where I get to make a lot of decisions."
"When was the moment you decided to leave your finance job?"
"It was on a trip that I took to Africa, in 2012, I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro [Laughs] and I realize that I never had spent so much effort into a singular goal as I did to climb that mountain and if I had the ability to work that hard and I wasn't doing it at my career than I should be doing something else. I quit three days after I got back."

I'm gonna start doing this.' Because my mother used to write and I used to write with her and so the writing just came and I was just writing and doing poetry but just putting it to a beat and since 3rd grade I've been writing ever since."
"What kind of poems were you writing back then?"
"Just love poems [Laughs]. And then it started in 4th grade where I started talking about girls and like whatever I was going through at the time."

Because I've tried it on my own and it's just impossible to do something like this on your own and so we sat down and literally every idea and path that we had for the salon was so in parallel with each other that we were like, 'This is going to be an amazing partnership.'"

"What's the biggest challenge you face right now?"
"As a band we're dealing with this huge sea of mediocrity that's happening, not in a bad way, it's just that everyone has access to this technology right now so it's like someone can put it out there and flood this marketplace with it, but we're trying to create something that's long-lasting because if all of our influences are someone that actually thought about what they're gonna do and really put it into perspective and make the world a better place."

"My dad always said, 'You have to challenge luck for it to work.' And that's inspired me." - Alex Strohl

During high school Alex (@alexstrohl) got kicked out...which turned out to be one of the best things to ever happen to him as it led to his passion for photography.

Alex is now a full-time world traveling photographer with over half a million Instagram followers and collaborates with brands such as Canon and Land Rover for himself and his creative agency, Stay & Wander.

You'll hear Alex discuss his path to photographic freedom, the compass of curiosity, and that to live the life you want you just gotta design it.
