Dorothea Bozicolona-Volpe on Music

I met today’s guest (#20), Dorothea Bozicolona-Volpe, at the bar in Miami. To be clear, I was at the bar with another guy – at a conference – and she approached us. Ha!


Dorothea (pronounced Dor-a-TAY-a) loves culture, food, art, and skateboarding, but what underlies everything in her life is really her true passion: MUSIC.

  • Dorothea told us about how one teacher recognized her dislike for the violin and her interest in voice.
  • Dorothea shared her love for the Rolling Stones – she’s heard them live 20+ times!
  • We discussed “doing what you love and getting paid for it” vs. “doing what you love on the side.”
  • We chatted about my taste in music (90s rap)!
  • We talked about music triggering memories … and I even sang a bit. AHHHH!
  • I could not remember the song my wife and daughter love to sing (but here it is, the Johnny Cash & June Carter version, at least.
