My Motivation

Get inside my head.

What moves me

 

CULTURAL RELEVANCE

Trends. Taste. Education. Approach. Social Norms. Preference. It’s all mashed up into the gumbo we call CULTURE. Staying in the conversation is critical and I help brands and creators make the connection.

 

DIGITAL MEDIA & TECHNOLOGY

Bits & Bytes. Digital life is Real life. Many of my professional engagements have centered around projects that thrive on the Internet. It's my second home.

MUSIC

The sounds that make you tap your toes, nod your head, raise your arms in the air. If it's got the right tempo, you might even 'cut a rug'. Music defines me. I've been curating for a few years now. Groove to the playlists.
 

 

RETAIL

Retail covers what, when, where, and how things are bought and sold. Real. Tangible. Consumable. Live. If it is transactional IRL, I'm paying attention. (...It's heading in an "experiential" direction)

COMMUNICATION

Seeking to make some sense of the firehose of daily information, I'm interested in the ways that we connect. Face-to-face, or anonymously across the globe, we humans have a lot to share.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY & SUPPORT

Taking care of what we've got is just the right thing to do; occasionally, we need a reminder. I do my part as co-founder and active member of Worldwide Psychos, a charitable group focused on direct-to-recipient support.

The Underpinnings

Driven by a pioneer's lust for "the new", I've evolved to become an obsessive student of consumer habits and culture at large. Our communities are fueled by culture. Cash is only one form of currency.

Empathy. Humility. Effectiveness.

Be kind to others and keep an open mind. It really seems simple, sharing insight in order to raise the bar for all. Teaching is how we learn.

The guiding mantra is “Contribute to the Positive".
So, if you're looking for a guy like me, here I am!

Sonic Blast

I've been compiling an annual mix of the sounds that influence me over the course of each year for some time now. 17 years in, I've finally created a repository.

 

Creative collaborators

I'd be lost without my creative peers and collaborators. Together, we make the magic.
