Norman Korpi

Norman is many things--an acclaimed artist who began painting at the age of ten, a design entrepreneur, a Cooper Union and Yale University Norfolk program fellow, a television/film//commercial multi-hyphenate and a proud Michigan native. Norman might be best recognized for his breakout performance on the pioneering reality television program: MTV's The Real World New York. Having cameras follow Norman and his six fellow cast-mates became the model for ALL reality programming that was to come. Keeping his vision firmly ahead of the curve, Norman produced and starred in the Wedding Video, a tongue-in-cheek look at the nuances of a gay couple getting married a full decade before the Supreme Court ruled on the Marriage Equality Act. Norman resides in Los Angeles' Hancock Park area and travels far and wide, always with his A/Stand in tow!
