Where was the music video filmed?
It was filmed out in Brooklyn, where Rick grew up, on the beach [Long Beach]. They didn't have a ton of money,
so they put me up for one night at Rick's mom's house. I actually slept in Rick's bedroom where he grew up. He
had a twin bed with AC/DC, Kiss, and Led Zeppelin posters plastered all over the room. It was pretty cool, as
I loved all those bands. It was fun to stay in his room and meet his family. They were very nice people. On
the day we filmed the video, it was warm, sunny with bright blue skies, and just amazing. I had to go and find
a bikini for the shoot on the boardwalk near the beach. I found a thrift shop and bought a cute little gold
lame bikini. I have it to this day, and it still fits!
Has anyone ever approached you on the street and asked if you were the girl in "She's on It" video?
Yes, I think that may have happened once or twice over the years.
Tell us about your work now. What are you up to?
I built my first website for my band
in 1992, and ever since then I've been obsessed with technology. Over the years, I've developed many sites and
am in the midst of launching
Tagasauris, a data curation platform that makes your
content smarter. Our customers include Magnum Photos, the Museum of the City of New York (Tagasauris won a
grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to annotate the museum's archives), Ryerson University,
the New York Times, and others. Imagine you have a vast archive of photos--or any type of media--that
doesn't have metadata attached. There's absolutely no way a computer can see or find this content without
metadata. Our platform combines humans via crowdsourcing, machines, and semantic technologies and attaches all
this data to your content. Check it out at
