Like design, food and selfies, our job as sensual curators is to tell you a story. You know me for design, but I dig in hard on all five senses. When it comes to music… I am that nerd who holes up for days digging around for beauty, not bathing and eating noodles.
Here’s a rollercoaster of familiar and new, smokey hot for the shivers of February.
Gen’s Valentines Playlist
for you from me.
Love ya kitten,
Hit it hard
Who hasn’t wished at some point that their life could have its very own soundtrack? Now it can with Gen’s playlists for your every day and your every mood in 2015 (click the titles to listen on Spotify).
Playlist #1: Get y’goin
In the morning, while you workout, getting ready to go out… we all need some umph. Here’s mine for you.
Playlist #2: Sexy Time
We all need this, all the time. Classics, foreign, sultry, lovely.
Playlist #3: From the Studio – Music to Design By
Designers go internal when they create, silently pulling on the visual, drawing, dreaming. Our sonic backdrop needs to be encouraging, not too invigorating, but transportive and inspiring.
P.S. We love Sonos.

In His Words:
I’m a music-obsessed punk b-boy skate kid with a Scandinavian name born in NY and bred in 1980s LA. While on a path to achieve great things in the world of visual art in the 90s as a student at Art Center and graduate of Otis College, I had a lusty affair with radio that has yet to end thanks to top-ranking NPR station KCRW. I jump-start the careers of artists such as Banks and Little Dragon, consult for the likes of Apple and Nike, curate special events, make lit-house music with my partner Mateo Senolia, interview people, write, and mentor. I’m also a hubby, poppa, and recent adopter of two sweet kitties, Caliope and Wadsworth.
