A Post Summer Update!

Once again, months unfold – but the constantly rolling list of automatically-updated links above just doesn’t do the time justice – the written word is needed. But I’ll keep it simple… Mindshare: The monthly event that I host is the best ‘Enlightened Debauchery’ in LA 😉 EPICs: rugged camping trips throughout California and the southwest. My lovely mother got married to the enigmatic Ed Osgood in San Francisco. I turned 29 – time to get serious!

And Here Comes Summer!

Damn, time flies – even keeping a monthly mini-log is proving a challenge. But on the other hand I’ve had a couple of big months, like presenting Tuxedo Travels at the Art Center Design Conference.

Back home at in LA

Aaah – the joy of being back home in LA!! I’m living back at the Brewery, quite possibly the coolest place ever. On Christmas I gathered 8 people in San Francisco for the Tuxedo Christmas Miracle! The freshest news is that we’re working on pitching it as TV Series! Give you feedback on our Facebook Group 😉 Otherwise it’s life as normal in LA – drop me a line and if you come visit we can go for a hike in Griffith Park.
