truth // business worth minding.

Posted on February 3rd, 2015


A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people’s business.

Just a reminder to keep doing what you’re doing, moving and shaking and minding your own business. Make it a great week!

truth // a better world.

Thank you to my friends, mentors and role models, dreamers and believers, the courageous and cheerful and successful, for igniting a fire within me to do better, be better, work harder, and to make a difference in the lives of others that has meaning.


want // superstar is not what you think it is.

Posted on January 9th, 2015

I grew up wearing adidas superstars, and it is great to see the Originals brand come back with a campaign that challenges what it means to be a superstar from some of the most talented superstars out there, including Pharrell Williams, David Beckham, Rita Ora and Damian Lillard.

As a marketer, a best practice for videos is to keep them at 30-45 seconds [unless you’re Cartier and creating a film masterpiece]. I watched the entire mini-film and wanted more, I wanted personal stories from each of the superstars. Good thing adidas will be releasing new content through the rest of the year. Happy 25 years of the superstar, and bravo¬†Johannes Leonardo.
