BECKY RAN­DEL

Ocean Drive - - Without Whom This Issue Would Not Have Been Possib -

A Mi­ami-based free­lance writer and copy­writer orig­i­nally from Con­necti­cut, Becky Ran­del is a fre­quent con­trib­u­tor to Ocean Drive, as well as Peo­ple and Peo­ple.com, About.com, Thedai­ly­meal.com, and W mag­a­zine, among oth­ers. Ran­del in­ter­views two of Mi­ami’s most prom­i­nent fig­ures in the worlds of art and sports, artist Ty­poe and ten­nis player Monica Puig, in this is­sue. How has Ty­poe changed the art scene in Mi­ami? I wasn’t aware that Ty­poe and his Pri­mary Flight part­ners, Books Bischof and Cristina Gon­za­lez, were re­ally the ones who started the whole street-art move­ment in Wyn­wood. They vi­su­al­ized— and ne­go­ti­ated—the en­tire con­cept, and they were the ones who brought in world-renowned artists to con­trib­ute. It’s a ma­jor un­told story of Mi­ami. You also in­ter­viewed Monica Puig. What was that like? She is so poised and has ac­com­plished so much at such a young age.
