This week we’re joined by Crew Member Hyun Kim, who is currently the Executive Producer of The Madbury Club, a Brooklyn-based Creative House of misfits who do what they want and still somehow gets corporate clients like Nike, Beats by Dre, and Jameson to pay them. After graduating from Cornell he spent several years as a writer/editor at VIBE and MTV. Born in South Korea, he was raised in Ithaca, NY, and currently resides in Brooklyn.
