Hi, I'm Kurt.
I've made my way from Wall Street to Start-ups to Madison Avenue, all the while hiding the artist inside me. I had my first big RESET moment while Executive Producing an ad campaign for major tech company back in 2014. The long hours led to burnout, which led to a therapist, who taught me to meditate — it was one of the best things that ever happened to me.
Meditation helped me better manage my stress and gave me the space to reflect on my priorities. For too long, my creativity took a back seat, and so I began sharing my poetry and stories in public. I realized great poems worked like guided meditations, and I figured if it helped me it could help others too.
That hunch led me to a 200 hour meditation instructor certification at the Three Jewels, an enlightenment studio in NYC, an 8 month teaching artist certification with Community Word Project. From there, I began designing leading creative teams, ad agencies, brands, students, and non-profits in mindfulness, creativity, and culture building workshops.
That was Spring of 2017 and the group workshops quickly led one-on-one work with senior executives, a book of poetry and prompts called "Childish Things," a weekly Poetry Lunch, and a mindful poetry performance at the The Big Quiet's monthly meet-up, Medi Club.
I still work as an Executive Producer for innovative brands and non-profits, such as UPS, Microsoft, LG, Human Rights Watch, The BLK SHP Foundation and many more, to tell their stories through films and immersive experiences.
What stories do you, or your organization, have to tell? What ones are holding you back? Let's explore, edit, and evolve together.
