Father's Day Show: My Dad, Tom Aageson, Co-Founder, Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship

This month's Big Vision Podcast interview is a special one with . . . my Dad (!) Tom Aageson, the co-Founder of the Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship.

You can listen on the player at the bottom of the post, on the Big Vision Podcast landing page, or on iTunes. Here's the direct download (mp3) link too.

In addition to being the co-Founder of the Global Center, he is also the Executive Director of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation. Since moving to Santa Fe, he has developed New Mexico Creates, an economic development initiative that creates market links for New Mexico artists and artisans. He is also the co-Founder of the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market.

Before coming to Santa Fe, he was the Director of Aid to Artisans, an international artisan enterprise development NGO. Previous to that, he was at the Mystic Seaport Museum where he created the Mystic Maritime Gallery, which led to the opening of new markets for martime artists, and eventually spawned six for-profit gallery enterprises across the US.

I hope you enjoy the interview with my pops. I'll post a transcript here in a week, or so.

Happy Father's Day!
