My Policy on Sponsorship and Ads

The truth is, money speaks, and it's hard to turn away an offer from a corporation with millions of dollars of advertising revenue. But, what people want, and ultimately what this great art form needs are authentic voices. Getting sponsored is a great, quick, easy way to make money - you're given a product or service, asked to write an article, you post it, and you're paid. The problem is, you're giving something huge up in return for a quick easy payout - your reader's trust.

The Perfect Ice Cream Scoop…

I had a total "aha" moment in the kitchen; I went on a search a couple months ago for the best ice cream scoop, with the intention of sharing it with everyone, and I never shared my findings! Truthfully, it was kind of a joke at first, but when I realized how most normal scoops are so disappointing - never releasing, getting an ugly scoop, or just chipping away small shavings - I also realized how it wasn't really that silly of a search after all. Unlike some reviews that'll compare five different ones and then reveal their best, I'll get quick to the point. Sure, there are a lot of great scoops out there, but there's something just a little better about this one.

Turning over a new leaf, creatively speaking

For a long time, this blog has been a labor of love. Throughout the years I've always come back to it. Recently I made the decision to set it aside for a while and work on doing more video work. Unfortunately, for all of us "old-school" types, my experience has been that written content is not as appealing as it once was; video has taken over as the preferred content medium. Still though, I am drawn back again and again to my writing, and, as much as I do this for others, I do it chiefly for me. I am reminded of a poem, "so you want to be a writer?" by Charles Bukowski. It's a fatalistic view on, really, any type of creative work.

Well, this has been a little while in the making. A couple weeks ago I was sitting enjoying a drink and some sun at LA Jackson, and I told myself it was time. Time to finally bite the bullet and put the feelers out there. For what? The next portion of the blog. I've been working on the style section for years but it's never been what I've wanted it to be. I've taken a lot down, and been waiting for the right situation. I'm here now. So why wait anymore? Just do it, right?

I’m heavily inclined toward all things creative, and self-expression. I am, among other things, a lifestyle writer, social influencer, and a photographer – and this is my creative outlet. It’s a collection of what I’ve seen, lived, learned, and thought. It’s a pursuit toward the curation of “the good life”; a guide to all things hedonistic, if you will.
