THE WEEKEND

Ended up in The Bay this weekend with nothing planned but a hotel. Despite that, it had to be one of the best trips ever. I’ve been there a ton of times; even spent summers in Oakland when I was growing up. But this trip had a lot of first

ADVENTURE READY

Last week, Kawasaki hosted an event where they featured their newest products in the motor and power sports categories. The night was meant to connect the people that crave adventure; those whose lives have been changed by the world of two and four wheelers. Set against a backdrop of canyon and greenery, we

After taking down the artwork from the BRANDALISM show at illest LA, Antonio, Shelly, and I walked the two blocks to the Nike SNKRS Air Max Box. It was the last of the three-day pop up event that celebrated Air Max in a larger than life digital shoe box in the center of the Little

INSIDE: LOUIS VUITTON SERIES 2

Been holding on to these pictures for a minute. Forgive my delay; I had a show to curate/open. Louis Vuitton Series 2 was the public, unconventional, consumer-facing, 2 week exhibit held here in Los Angeles last month. I had a chance to check it out before it closed and I’m so glad
