My self-summary
I am intensely passionate about two things: advertising and music.

I have a recording studio in my bedroom and make music when I have the time, which has become more rare lately because of the next paragraph.

I started an ad agency five years ago, and I work about ten hours a day. That won't be changing any time soon, but I'm not complaining. My company is like a family, and I do what I have to do to keep us all together and growing.
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard to keep the lights on and food on the table for myself and all of my employees and, when I have time, going to as many concerts as possible.
I’m really good at
Not bragging. (If the irony of that joke didn't make you at least snicker, don't bother with me.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I truly give a shit about them
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My current top one of each...

Movie: The Lion King (will probably never change)

Food: Corned beef hash, fried with a steamed egg on top, smothered in processed cheese. Judge me, I don't mind.

Music: Blue October. My eyes well up just a bit when I think about how this band has impacted my life. If you have never had a strong emotional response to music, just move along. I won't be your guy.

TV: Currently on major Burn Notice bender on Netflix

Books: The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz
Six things I could never do without
My business partner, Mark
My Fender Tele
My employees
Concert Days
My little sister
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New business positioning in the face of a rapidly changing tech landscape.

New product and service lines that hedge the risk in our financial portfolio.

What others are feeling.

CPM, CPI, ROI, CPC, KPI, CAC... And lots of other dumb business acronyms.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up on work that got missed during the week, or if I'm lucky and we are all caught up, maybe going twilight golfing or downtown for food and drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really miss overly sentimental 90's sitcoms like Full House and Boy Meets World.
You should message me if
You are smart(ish), fun to be around, and want a loyal friend who will have your back through thick and thin.

Also, if you like Blue October, I guarantee we will click immediately. If you want to come to a BO show, you will meet the band. My sister and I have been to so many of their shows that they know us by name.
