“There’s something to be said for the person who knows more than you, but never makes you feel that way.”
There’s a unique spark to Kim’s presence that instantly can buoy a room. It’s a mix of fearlessness and free-spiritedness that’s infectious. She’s the Owner of One Kourt Studio in Greenport, NY. In this episode, we discuss at what point one loses track of the number of tattoos they have, what it feels like to sell a $5,000 bottle of wine, and what wine pairs with The Ramones. Kim reminds us all to embrace the joy, and ditch the pretentiousness of wine.
