Exit Interview: Vinylmint and Drinks Downtown's Byron Morgan

Written by Jesse Scaccia on .

Byron Morgan has been a mover and shaker in numerous significant creative circles since he landed in Norfolk just four fast years ago. He's made his mark in the realm of music with Vinylmint, a recording studio and "online marketplace that connects audio creators globally." He's been a regular in Zack Miller's start-up world.

He's a busy guy whose absence won't go unnoticed.
This is his exit interview.
