I’ve decided to have a bit of fun on Fridays and ‘free associate’ with some known associates of mine. I know some pretty amazing people and each one is a character in their own way. So, to kick this off let me bring my former associate, business partner, groomsman, wingman, new business guru, and the […]
I had the pleasant surprise last night of getting a ‘day of’ invitation to join an associate of mine to check out Flaming Lips at Pacific Amp. at the OC Fair. I’m not really a fan of the band and honestly only knew a few songs. But, I have to say they really won me […]

This creative is all over the place: on the beach, on the pier, in the brand booth and in the stands. Bizarre seeing 40,000 boardshort and bikini-clad millenials cruising around […]
