As recently as last year, Bridget C. Firtle was an investment analyst at a mid-sized hedge fund. Now she's the founder of The Noble Experiment, an aptly-named Brooklyn organic rum distillery (she's got her eye on whiskey, too) that's situated far from Wall Street—in scary, scary Bushwick.

How did Bridget go from investing to hand-crafting spirits from local ingredients? Ask her tomorrow at noon in the comments here on Gawker.

Check out The Noble Experiment here, and head here for the story of another company founded on the concept of following one's higher calling: Sir Richard Branson's own Virgin Mobile USA.


Noon tomorrow. It's a date.
