Rose stopped by my apartment before getting honored at the American Academy of Arts and Letters.  A self-described break down on the way to a job in Staten Island was the impetus for heading back to school after a decade of living and working as an artist in New York. We talk about how that turned out in this episode. Spoiler alert: turned out great.
