Urban Paradise Guild founder Sam Van Leer – #YouWowMe 4

“I have no personal life Liam.  I have a full-blown obsession with UPG.”  And that accurately describes Sam Van Leer’s passion and complete dedication to the environmental non-profit, Urban Paradise Guild (UPG), he founded nearly five years ago. Three years ago I volunteered to photograph one of UPG’s service projects at Vizcaya and was immediately […]

Myra “Obey Yo Momma” Wexler – The Arts Diva of Miami – #YouWowMe 3

“Lots of great sex!” was the 3rd sentence Myra Wexler said to me within 6o seconds of meeting her a little over three years ago.  To put that in context, she was answering my question, “How do you stay so youthful?” Myra Wexler is a force.   She is a self-described “Arts Maven” but to be […]

Charna Greenstein - I’ve known Myra since the early 1960′s. I don’t remember our first encounter but I do recall what an amazing, dynamic person she was, even back then. I’ve long since moved away from Miami but whenever I’ve gone back to visit, I always think of Myra and if I’m lucky, she fits me into her busy schedule. Myra — you’re the bomb!

Stacy Conde - I was at an event in DCOTA when I saw this amazing creature with spiked white hair sitting comfortably in an armchair of sorts. She was surrounded by people, admirers, attendants, the anti-diva holding court. I was wearing cocoa colored lipstick, which she forever refers to as black, her eyes focused in on me. That was it, mutual fascination at first sight. Instantly, she wanted to know my life story. I dared not ask hers, yet. It was clear she was the interviewer and I was being interviewed. Since then, I have seen this scene played out over and over. Myra is fascinated by people in general, but there is a real love in her for the artists. Her passion is palpable and her compassion is legendary. Myra Wexler is a mensch, and I love her with all my heart.

Andres Conde - I was in the studio when she walked in. Looking hella cool she looked at my work and snapped a couple of shots. When we were introduced, she looked me up and down, and flashing a crooked smile, pointed to Stacy Conde and said “…So, you’re the one banging her!” That was the moment I knew I had found “the other woman in my life”. Love Yo Momma baby, love Yo Momma!

Lloyd Goradesky - Although I was introduced to ‘Yo Mama’ Myra a while ago, I never really ‘met’ her until I listened to her have a conversation with my ageing mother about the good ol’ days of south beach during art basel miami 2013

Robert Platshorn – America’s most notorious marijuana smuggler

On Wednesday I found myself sharing Cuban coffee and empanadas with America’s most notorious pot smuggler, Robert Platshorn, while listening to his incredible stories including being held at gunpoint by a Colombian National Army lieutenant on a remote airstrip in the Colombian jungle. Robert is a natural story-teller (and I should know because I grew […]
