HÄANA Podcast Transcription
Start out by introducing yourself
My name is Haana Thiem, I go by HÄANA on stage.  I am very particular about my brand because it is recognizable, and what people read, see and hear.  I live in L.A. now.  I used to live in New York and the east coast for about 10 years, before New York was Boston.  I am kind of a nomadic individual.  I love the question “where have you been?” rather than “where do you live?” or “where were you born?”  because that doesn’t say a lot about a person, I think.
