How did you decide on the money heart? “My friend sent me a link to submit your own I heart NY logo. The absolute first thing to pop into my mind was “money.” Ideas don’t usually come that quick for me but I just knew I would use a bill or dollar sign. We all know how expensive it is to live here and it’s on everyone’s minds now more than ever. I think we justify it with all the things to do, places to go and the ability to get what you want at any hour of the day here. I’m from Boston and I love it there too but after growing up and going to college there you get the feeling that you’ve done it all. NY has an energy to it that I haven’t found elsewhere. Getting food at all hours is a luxury I don’t know if I could live without either! But back to the design, the thing you need most to love NY is money sadly. It’s just an expensive place to be but I think we all suck it up and just deal with it.
I’m a graphic designer who was laid off almost 2 years ago. (Right before Thanksgiving, can you believe it?). That’s L-A-M-E. Time has really flown by and since then I’ve managed to get by with the help of unemployment and various freelance projects. I’ve been pretty lucky to be doing alright. 

My real passion is music. I’ve been DJing for about eight years now and producing for about three. A variety of electro, techno, indie, trance, downtempo and all sorts of stuff like that. You can listen to mixes and tracks on my website. I’m lucky enough to be living in the East Village now with two great friends and really like I’m part of the city now. Before was on the Upper West, and before that Astoria. Still trying to find my calling but hopefully it happens soon.  It will happen; New York New York is the city of dreams!I submitted another logo they (NYT) did not put up. I did it really fast as a joke. NY loves to party right?” Um, yes; they certainly do!  This has a real Bret Eaton Ellis vibe.
