Ron Schulman grew up in the Sullivan County Catskill Mountains of New York where he was born in December 1962. He is a graduate of Hunter College, the City University of New York, where he holds a BA in Urban Affairs and an MUP in Urban Planning. He owns his own affordable housing development firm.

Ron has been writing poetry for the past 40 years ever since 11th grade as this is one of his favorite pastimes. He sees the world unfiltered; he listens as he walks, never with ear buds or headphones. He enjoys the sounds of nature and of people as they walk through their lives. Ron has built affordable housing for people who have difficulty finding decent places to live. His poetry compliments this work as he speaks about the human condition and what we need to do to help heal this world.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and my story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.

  1. Love this. I bought this book when I first heard about it. I really loved it. Your husband has a sweet soul and I enjoyed his poetry. Your assistant did a great job adding your art to the poetry. It is a lovely combo. I am going through you podcast and was tickled to come across this one, vert cute!
