I’ve been skateboarding for 20 years. Here’s a video I shot and edited of my trip to the beautiful skateboard mecca, Barcelona.

I also make full-length skate flicks too. Here’s the trailer for my wild, anything-goes video titled Skate or Dance.

At The Integer Group, I started up a series of curated playlists from each team's top songs with the amazing illustrator, Tim Hagaman.

I also dabble in the photoshops

Here’s a PBR beer can I painted during one of our occasional art nights with my friends.

ADVERTISING ANTHEM: I wrote, performed and recorded this rap way back as an intern at Door Number 3 in Austin around 2009. 

 

 

LYRICS:

Hey. Hi, how’s it goin’? Hope you know that I’m just jokin’. 
See it wouldn’t be an anthem without a little ego showin’.
So this one goes out to Ad Gangstas everywhere,
And if the tab’s on the client, raise them glasses in the air.

Take a swig from that beer - ya the account we trying to win.
Claiming you creative, but where’s yo paper and ya pen?
I stay ahead of the game, I’m rockin’ CS 10.
One Show look out, I’m bout to do it again!

Out with the old. Yeah, it’s the extradition of tradition.
Account Account Exec, or Copywriter with repetition.
This the wild life, the tagline ain’t “Gone Fishin’.”
The "Confessions of an Ad Man," these the pages that are missin’.

See I like to advertise, not tell lies to the masses.
My subliminal messages might make y’all kick each other’s asses.
3,000 ads a day, it’s like they’re everywhere you look.
Now we’re invading your ear space, so let’s go and drop the hook.

HOOK:
I’m an Ad Gangsta,
Just ask my CD.
Every party I throw, top news on TMZ.
Ya, I’m an Ad Gansta. What you know about me?
I’m an Ad Gangsta, Ad, ad, ad-ad GANGSTA!

See everybody knows somebody in the biz.
Concepting on private planes, ya that’s what that is.
50,000 Facebook friends, a million YouTube hits.
Award-winning campaign, he's claiming that that’s his.

Check out Ad Age… my success is duly noted.
I’m part of popular culture, so you know I’m being quoted.
If I’m at your office party, know your keg’s getting floated.
A Senior at 28, yeah you know I get promoted! 

Someday I think I’ll open up my own agency,
And I’ll name it something, with a lot of creativity.
My creative directors won’t be called CDs,
I’ll take it a step further, and call 'em MP3s.

I’m an Ad Gangsta,
But I'm not the only one up in here.
Ya, I’m an Ad Gangsta.
It’s what I do for my career!
It doesn’t take a genius to see it, you could say it’s crystal clear
That People in Advertising are Ready To Aww Yeahhh.

HOOK:
I’m an Ad Gangsta,
Just ask my CD.
Every party I throw, top news on TMZ.
Ya, I’m an Ad Gansta. What you know about me?
I’m an Ad Gangsta, Ad, ad, ad-ad GANGSTA!

 

 

 


Hey, look at you! You kept scrolling, so you earned a picture and a poem:

SURFING THE SUNRISE
Summer’s come. Vacation’s set.

Morning flight’s departing now.

Window seat. Headphones on.

Heavy eyes but I fight the yawn.

Lights turn off. Wheels ascend.

Hello Heavens. We meet again.
