Pam Capalad
Founder & Financial Planner,
Brunch & Budget

Hey, I’m Pamela Capalad. I’m a Certified Financial Planner™ and I’ve been in the financial services industry for over 8 years, and spent a lot of those years at wealth management firms (if you’re really curious where, check out my LinkedIn). I'm the owner of Brunch & Budget, where we have a meal and talk about your finances. I'm based in Brooklyn, NY and serve clients virtually across the country.
I'm here to help you get to that place in your life. You know that place. That place where you close your eyes and feel perfectly at peace and energized all at the same time. That place where you know you’re at your best, that you were somehow built for this, this thing you’re doing that you can’t believe you get to spend your life doing.
Life isn’t about cringing every time you run your credit card through a cash register or dodging calls from bill collectors. It’s not about the next paycheck, next rent check, next job, next in line. Life is about finding your why.
So here’s the deal – you have the why, I have the how. Whenever you're ready, I'll be here to help you figure out how to get there.

Brian 'Dyalekt' Kushner
MC/Rapper, Hip Hop Educator, Playwright, Actor, Artist Entrepreneur

I'm from St Croix, USVI, but have been all up in Brooklyn for a while now. I've been a part of the NYC Indie Hip Hop scene since the early 00’s. I've toured the country and the world as myself, and with bands MINDSpray & Deathrow Tull. I've rapped at weddings, schools, prisons, sides of busses, store windows (whattup Chashama!), and most street corners you've seen.
I should probably give a lil background on the theater part. I moved to the states to be an actor. As a mixed race Caribbean kid, I had trouble figuring out where to find roles that i felt comfortable playing. I started writing for myself and others by turning my music into plays. I was a member of the Public Theater's Emerging Writers Group and I've acted and collaborated in indie shows at all the requisite festivals, played the Green Show at OSF, and had readings at the Ohio Theater. I've rocked a number of theaterings with Subjective, Company Cypher, and the National Black Theater.
Every piece I create ends up having an educational component. It's the 'each one teach one' part of Hip Hop. I'm always looking to build avenues of learning from the moments of clarity that great performances can bring us. I've been piloting my ed programs back home in St. Croix and just finished a tour of Hip Hop & Finance workshops on the West Coast. Oh yeah, I also have a weekly podcast about those on Bondfire Radio.

Although the presenters clearly had a lot of passion and creativity, I thought it was a bit to cutesy and not enough meat and potatoes. We started late and then spent a lot of time playing games. The real content didn't start until we were three quarters of the way through the class time which meant that we ran out of time and didn't get through their whole presentation. I also thought that they spent too much time on participants personal questions. The content we got through was very minimal.
