I spent the day with entrepreneur Michael James. He is the founder of Frederick Benjamin Grooming. We have a conversation about how he turned his work experience into his passion, we strolled along 125th street, visited Levels barber Shop, learned the inspiration behind the name of his company and we end the day at one of his downtown retail accounts – Georgia on houston avenue (bowery) in Nolita. Full disclosure, Michael gave me some samples. I am now a customer. I have been getting compliments on my hair all over NYC..lol..
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
