We had the good fortune of connecting with isaac joseph and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi isaac, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
I believe in taking risks to support growth, playing to your strengths, aligning with a like-minded community to build upon what is already in motion, cultivating new opportunities for brand development, and highlighting the fact that success and social commitment can thrive hand in hand.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have a background in strategic thinking, creative partnerships, and business development. I founded my consulting practice in Los Angeles in 2002 and have since produced hundreds of projects in more than a dozen countries collaborating with numerous creatives, brands and agencies. These projects vary in scale, tone and medium, from art to entertainment, from publishing to luxury goods to hospitality, to art fairs, galleries, arts institutions and private foundations. Working across the global contemporary art landscape for the past two decades, I believe art should be a place for social change. The insight I provide enables clients to navigate the vicissitudes of changes in the world. The objective is to create something new, and to collaborate with people who are doing things differently or for the first time.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
People always talk about the weather, and about palm trees and movie stars. I spend a lot of time away, so the things I think about are always connected to memories. Both of my parents were born in LA, I grew up taking road trips to San Francisco. Going to Big Sur or Idylliwild or San Diego. The smells of wild sage and lavender in Topanga Canyon where I spent my childhood, The sun setting over the Pacific. The Wednesday farmers market in Santa Monica. The smell of the sea. The hawks that soar above the Santa Monica mountains. Driving across Mulholland. Disney Hall with Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic. Or the Hollywood Bowl anytime. French dip sandwiches at Philippe The Original which opened in 1908 where my Father’s Grandfather took him as a boy, still family owned. Across the street from Olvera where Los Angeles began. A Dodger game on a warm Summer night.
