TAKE FIVE WITH
An afternoon check-in with some of our friends - to see what they love and why.
Coltrane Curtis is the founder of Team Epiphany, an award-winning, full-service consumer marketing agency specializing in brand strategy, fire events, establishing key relationships and cool-making for all kinds of companies. People and publications regularly call on Coltrane for his expertise about influencer marketing - because he pretty much invented it. Before he founded his own agency (with his better half, Lisa) he was a young marketing maverick for Marc Ecko and on-air host for MTV, but beyond all the work stuff Coltrane’s pure essence lies in his role as a standup family man who hustles hard in the name of the ancestors that came before him and for his two sons. Home is where the heart is – check out what Coltrane’s planning to add to his.
Name: Coltrane Curtis
Location: DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY
Jobs: Entrepreneur and Founder + Managing Partner of Team Epiphany
Favorite Room: The bathroom. I own two homes—one in DUMBO, Brooklyn, and one in Pound Ridge, NY—with multiple living rooms, a total of eight bedrooms, and yet the only place in either of these homes where I can find some personal time is the DUMBO hallway bathroom or the Pound Ridge basement bathroom. The bathroom is the only place you can really own in your own house, and that’s where you can find me.
Best Afternoon: Standing in front of my grill in Pound Ridge—alternating between BBQing and swimming in the saltwater pool.
