CORE 10: Shaun Osher

CORE 10 // Dec 13, 2016

shaun-core-10-2

Welcome to CORE 10, an off-the-cuff interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to learn more about this week’s guest, Founder & CEO Shaun Osher!

  1. Who is the living person you most admire? Brittley Wise.
  2. Who is the most interesting New Yorker you know? The polite homeless man who sits on the corner every day asking if I can “spare any change.” 
  3. What is your earliest New York memory? Arriving on 48th Street to look at all the music stores and meeting Dave Sanborn at “Alex’s sax shop” on the 2nd Floor. 
  4. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Embrace failure.
  5. What do you consider your greatest achievement so far? Learning how to juggle (metaphorically speaking.)
  6. What are your three most treasured possessions? I treasure my relationships with people I know and love. But people are not possessions, so as far as inanimate objects go, I feel very fortunate to own my saxophones, a beautiful Triumph Thruxton Motorcycle and a diamond tie-pin that my grandfather left me (even though I rarely wear a tie.)
  7. Name a movie, book or work of art that changed your life. The Collection by Charlie Parker.
  8. What’s your greatest extravagance? I like to travel and explore new places as often as possible. 
  9. What’s your secret talent? I used to be a pretty good tap dancer. 
  10. Which words or phrases do you most overuse? “Make it so.”
