NYC Spoken Word Artist/Poet Lee Sachs features @ The Inspired Word All-Star Showcase, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, Bareburger East Village, Manhattan, New York City. Hosted by Eric Lee.
This is the 1st of 2 parts.
Lee Sachs wrote, directed and starred in his award-winning thesis film "Wild Sound." That short film earned him an MFA from NYU, received many awards and favorable press in the New York Times and the Village Voice. He's wrote for a Hollywood producer that called him "bubbeleh," wrote a screenplay for a vanity project about a wealthy Iranian antique dealer financed by a wealthy Iranian antique dealer and scouted locations for Woody Allen. His early performances mixed music, stories and performance art at venues like the Knitting Factory, The Bottom Line, PS122, Dixon Place. Once the internet swallowed us whole, Lee got sucked into information technology still honing his writing covertly in a secluded location. Disguised as an "IT consultant" for companies like Verizon, Avis and Jaguar he grew a respectable practice in User Experience. Now, he emerges from that disguise and tears the lid off business, technology, advertising and stupid buzzwords like monetizing eyeballs in his one-man show. Lee lives outside New York City with his wife, son and a lot of cats. His website includes the Museum of Marketing Madness, madnessmuseum.com & leesachs.com.
