Cameron Crowe, Philip Seymour Hoffman and a Lesson in Engagement

Cameron Crowe’s films have brought with them more than a few splendid lines of dialogue over the years, and one has always stood out to me as particularly beautiful.

A Few Minutes with Jerry, Part II

Some time ago, via this blog, we enjoyed the pleasure of getting to know one of our co-owners, Jerry Lee. Fast forward to some time later (right now), and we have the opportunity to get to know him even better.

Meet the Dark Side*

Well, it’s that time of year again. BBQ season. Strawberry season. NFL Training Camp. In a word – Summer. The start of many things, but the end of the dreaded school season (cue Alice Cooper).

Take 2: A Billboard, Reimagined

It can be easy to underestimate the value of a billboard. They reach a lot of people, consistently, but in the age of online marketing it’s often assumed that billboards are either ineffective or that the design doesn’t matter because of the high traffic.

Win Some, Grew Some

As of this moment, I’ve spent over 1,600 days (4+ years to the lay person) as the proud co-owner of a marketing agency. That experience has awarded me many perks.
