More About Me

I'm passionate about

GLOBAL / URBAN / UNDERGROUND MUSIC, ARTS & CULTURE

An idea worth spreading

URBAN / UNDERGROUND MUSIC, ARTS & CULTURE AS GLOBAL CONNECTORS.

Talk to me about

TV production, true-school hip-hop & electronic music, logos & graphic design, branding & marketing... and other cool, worldly subjects I may or may not be familiar with.

People don't know that I'm good at

-or rather, seriously interested in- craft beer & brewing (esp. oatmeal, chocolate, vanilla porters & stouts).

My TED Story

is just beginning, stay tuned...

  • A comment on Talk: Thomas Dolby: "Love Is a Loaded Pistol"

    Jan 4 2014: This song is included in Mr. Dolby's film, "The Invisible Lighthouse", an amazing transmedia, live-performance experience. Two months ago, I had a chance to speak with him about that and other cool stuff, including his TED work... http://cbsloc.al/1bTnvh1
  • A comment on Talk: JK Rowling: The fringe benefits of failure

    Mar 16 2011: Wow, excellent speech all around (substance/humor/poignancy/articulation)... also, it reminded me of a fave MJ/Nike spot, "Failure" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45mMioJ5szc
