Awesome in every way!
None of these images have been doctored; I truly had the best day ever as a vendor at Ozy Fest 2017! The New York Times called Ozy Fest “Ted meets Coachella” and I didn’t find the lie. The all-day party in Central park was filled with amazing panels and performances featuring dope authors, entrepreneurs, comedians, and artists like Jason Derulo, Samantha Bee, Mark Cuban, Malcolm Gladwell, Jill Biden, Talib Kwali, Issa Rae, Eddie Huang (thanks for signing all my books), Katie Couric, and many more.

(Seriously: Hear about my rolling stone days here.) I can’t believe he remembered me when it was time to choose vendors!
