075 : Joe Sabia : Digital Project Guy

Joe Sabia Post

In 2005 while in college Joe made a web-series with his friends that caught the attention of national press before YouTube even existed.

Joe has gone on to build a career for himself out of making viral videos, and is the co-creator of CDZA, a YouTube channel with nearly 300K subscribers (JoeSabia.co).

Since our interview Joe has recently become the head of digital development of Conde Nast Entertainment.

You’ll hear how Joe rides the wave of his curiosity to create a career of his own, the importance of finding the right team, and that to see something that you’ve never seen before, you may be the who has to make it.

“Everything that currently pays my rent has started out with the idea of being a hobby.” – Joe Sabia
