Thanks for dropping by. My guess is you want to learn a bit more about me:
I’m a New Yorker. It’s my favorite place in the world.
I’m married to the lovely and amazing Shayna Kulik.
I’m currently a partner with Downtown Music where we operate a range of music related businesses. As President of Downtown Music Publishing and Co-Founder of Songtrust, I focus primarily on leading our rights management and licensing initiatives. Prior to joining Downtown in 2007, I spent six years with Spirit Music Group where I was Head of A&R and previously held positions with RCA and Virgin Records.
In 2005, I was named one of Billboard Magazine’s “30 Under 30″ Faces to Watch and in 2011 I was named one of Crain’s “Forty Under 40″ Rising Stars of New York Business. But neither accolade really holds a candle to winning the 6th grade Geography Bee.
I travel a lot and have developed a bit of an obsession with maps–especially maps as art. One of my favorites can be found at Bohemian, a restaurant in New York’s Noho District, where Tokyo is at the center of the earth.
If you want to reach out, please feel free. I’m really easy to get in touch with (me [at] justinkalifowitz.com) and am generally happy to meet for a coffee.
