Josh Dzime-Assison, otherwise known simply as Dizzy, has been a sneaker enthusiast and cultural participant for over 10 years. Over that period, he's also developed his interests and career paths to include styling and brand consulting, keeping up with his love for clothes and sneakers. Along the way, he opened his own physical store in Maryland - which he ran during the day while attending classes at night for his final year of college at the University of Maryland. Before that, however, he had spent his first three years of college at the University of Delaware - where he studied business management. That helped get his mind in the right direction, he said, but his success came from experience as well as trial and error.
Dizzy and I met recently on the campus of Columbia University
to discuss the information above as well as many other topics. Press play and enjoy.
This is the eighth episode of a series called 'Conversations of the Craft.' The idea behind the series is that interviews are too formal. Conversations are a natural flow and progression of words between two or more people. These are conversations with talented individuals discussing their craft and what they love to do.
