Suzi is a yoga instructor, bassist, and creator. She met our producer, Cat, on a yoga retreat in 2015 and after hearing her talk about Hairstory and our products, Suzi became intrigued and submitted herself for casting right then and there.
I love yoga. It’s a life-saver, and it inspires me to stay open – not just physically but emotionally and mentally.
I was in a bookstore and saw a flyer with this gorgeous woman and I just thought, “Who is she and what is she all about?!” I realized that she was offering tarot classes and thought, “Oh wow, I have to do this,” so I took her number and started private classes.
I’m on the cusp of Gemini, but I’m technically zero degrees Cancer. It’s a real blend. It means I can talk and feel at the same time. I think it’s a gift to be able to articulate what I feel, because it can be difficult sometimes.
If you ask me what my first love in life is, it would be music. I loved listening to the radio as a kid and then I started playing bass. In the mid ’80s I auditioned for a band, Game Theory, and toured and recorded with them for a while until moving on to play with other people.
I was in a long-distance relationship with somebody who lived here, and after a couple of years of back and forth, we either had to live in the same city or go our separate ways. So I moved, and I stayed because I fell in love with New York whether I had the relationship or not.
I love to sew; I work in the garment district and take home the previous season’s textiles and I make things. I’ve taken to selling under a label I started called Courage NYC. I write creatively; I think Charles Dickens is amazing. He inspires me because he challenges social inequities and champions the underdog, and I love that.
