Boston Interiors started over 30 years ago, as just a bedroom store and now we are a furniture store that carries living room, bedroom, dining room and much more! Our focus is to curate a beautiful collection of products in our stores so that you don’t have to walk through rows and rows of furniture that is not your style. Read more>>

I’ve always been an avid reader, and I found a lot of inspiration in a book called “Abarat” by Clive Barker — a story about a girl who travels to another world — and all of the author’s own paintings displayed throughout each of the three books. This is what inspired me to start painting in high school, though I had previously been drawing in pencil throughout middle school. Read more>>

Our vision for barre3 is to redefine what success in fitness means, and every day we do that by teaching classes that balance the body and empower you from within. That approach has worked really well for us—we now have more than 140 studios and online subscribers in 98 countries. I am so proud of the women franchisees (nearly all of them women) who have joined forces with me to bring barre3 into their communities in their own authentic way. Read more>>

Playing sports and a love of activity, in general, helped sustain my always on the move lifestyle since a young age. How “it” happened changed throughout the years especially once I left high school and team sports. In college I continued to participate in intramural soccer, but also at that time, I found out I actually liked training inside the gym. I loved being outside and instead of being confined to a gym wasn’t all that appealing, but CrossFit brought a new level of enjoyment. Read more>>

My love for photography started at a young age. I must have been twelve, or so, when I first started experimenting with a camera. I remember roaming around the gardens around my house, at night, looking for something “worth” photographing. Then I came across a pink lotus flower. Read more>>

I will always say my first acting gig was that of an insurance salesman, so a quick shout out to Northwestern Mutual for the gig, haha. They paid me $4000 dollars to pass a few state exams, conduct a few interviews and learn some “Red Letter” language. For the record, they all thought I would make a great sales rep because I excelled in learning the language and improving situations when we role played in class. Read more>>

I’ve been singing since I was very little and began writing original music in high school. I knew this was where my heart was, but I chose a more academic path and ended up studying Opera in college and grad school, pushing my original dream aside as it felt a bit too “unknown and scary.” Fast forward to my last year of grad school at Boston University, and coming to terms that I wasn’t on the right path. Read more>>

My beautiful mother instilled a sense of aesthetics and art from an early age. Our house was filled with books and journals of modern literature which transformed into moving images as I read them – from childhood I dreamed of making films. After graduating from the Polytechnic University in my hometown, I worked as a physics teacher at a college. Read more>>

There are two things I know about myself – I need a creative project to work on, and I need to be outdoors exploring. When I was a kid, I would disappear to my room and reappear, hours later, with a fully sewn handbag or completed painting, or who knows what. I wanted to create, and when I was a kid, it meant trying everything. I was also very active with sports and dance, and I loved being outdoors. Read more>>

DJ DCaso (Darryl David)

I never thought I would ever be a DJ. I came to MA from NY for college and in my junior year, started experimenting with DJing. From dorm parties straight to the big stage and within that year, I was given the opportunity to open for PVD’s Jon Hope, the Bravehearts & Nas at Brandeis University in 08′. This ultimately fueled my passion and lead to me pursuing the many facets of DJing. Read more>>

We first introduced our ice cream for the first time in May 2015 under the brand name Minus the Moo. It started as a test at the popular SOWA market in Boston’s South End and have since grown into retail distribution throughout the Northeast. You can now buy Beckon at grocery retailers like Whole Foods Market, Big Y, Roche Bros, Giant, and Peapod from Maine to Virginia. Read more>>

I’m glad I took a chance on trying something new. I’ve actually heard horror stories where students would be beaten if they didn’t hold the brush right. And that those experiences took the fun out of calligraphy. So, I’m glad that I was able to practice on my own terms without punishment. But that’s how it started. This was the first step of many towards an unexpected path of exploring other types of art. Read more>>
