despite being born in inglewood, california, i have managed to avoid thug life and move nearly every four years with stops in el paso, san antonio, denver, pittsburgh, lubbock, dallas, london, amsterdam, los angeles, and portland.
john hinckley jr. and i graduated from texas tech university. hinckley went on to shoot president reagan. i went on to play the live music circuit as an alternative rock drummer as well as create award-winning advertising and design for some of the hottest creative shops in the u.s. and europe where i’ve helped developed more than 130 iconic brands.
today, i am a serial entrepreneur. i create, co-own, and market constructive brands, art and activism. i am also a career and business advisor, voiceover actor, and public speaker. i play drums in a post-hardcore band and regularly perform improv comedy.
i love mexican food. i am an audiophile and buy or download over 100 songs a month. i am into foreign and independent film. i prefer magazines to novels, dogs to cats, and sunshine over rain. i was last seen in a graphic t-shirt with my 10-year old mexican street dog, star, and her 1-year old buddy, ringo.
i am not a ganja activist, poker champ, geologist, nascar driver, pool player, or baseball pitcher. i do not live in kansas city and i’m far from dead, despite what else you might find on the internet.
