By trade I am a digital/social media strategist and have worked at top agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi and TBWA\Chiat\Day on all kinds of top-tier brands. Currently, I am managing a division at a video games publisher and applying similar skills.
Some of you may know me from my days in the band Fight From Above, in which I played a low caliber of lead guitar. In our music video, I am the one pouring whiskey onto the 110 Freeway, which I have also done in real life.
I used to be a contributor to LAist, especially during baseball season, but now that Magic owns the team, I’m relaxed and can just watch the sport. It’s like being at the beach for me.
I write this blog for fun and for no other reason. I do charge for speaking engagements, but that’s to be expected. No ads on here, no sponsors. Just pure whatever the hell I am currently thinking.
I am the creator of Arrogant Nation, Lane Fucking Kiffin, Bro, Bowls Are For Salads and You Can’t Sanction The Endzone. These are all my intellectual property. Your printing them on t-shirts is flattering, but stop acting like a Bruin and come up with something yourself. I won’t sue you, I’ll just take your picture, post it here and describe you. Not sure what’s worse. Check out this year’s lineup HERE.
I’ve survived melanoma twice. It sucks, but I am the bearfighter. Fight til you win.
Oh yeah, there’s this…

IT IS MY INTELLECTUAL BEACHFRONT PROPERTY AND SHOULD NEVER BE CONSIDERED INFORMATION FROM MY EMPLOYER, OR ANY OF MY EMPLOYERS, PAST OR PRESENT. FRANKLY, I AM NOT SURE WHAT I WRITE HERE IS EVEN AN OPINION, RATHER THE EXPLOSIVE POSSIBLY FICTIONAL OUTBURST OF A BOURBON ENTHUSIAST. IGNORE ME AT ALL COSTS.
***For any agents, managers, reps or groupies, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I tend to be prompt, but please come with an idea and if you don’t read the blog, don’t expect me to post about your product I probably won’t use. Or my readers.”
