Who Doesn’t Want a Monkey in the Office

Ok, very random – but I work at an advertising agency in San Diego, and we are having a competition between the local agencies:

Whoever can get the most likes on a picture holding the Addy (an advertising award) gets a petting zoo in the office. If you have Instagram, please click and like this photo.

Last Day of Movember

Today is the last day of Movember, and though I enjoyed growing the facial hair of a long-haul trucker, the time has come for it to end.

We have an official Movember team, and are trying to raise money in awareness of prostate cancer. Even if you don’t have money to donate, please like and share our video; after enough shares, eventually one person will donate 🙂

Or donate to my personal Mo-space: https://www.movember.com/us/donate/payment/member_id/4284225/

Thanks!

The Amazing Transformation of a Guy Who Didn’t Give Up

I have always believed in the power of the mind in healing – being positive, laughing, and telling yourself that you can do something. I believe that if you tell yourself good things will happen, they will, and that if you convince yourself that you will get better, your body can overcome great things. This video proves that with positive thinking and determination, you can even beat out what doctors tell you is impossible – it is the amazing transformation of a guy who didn’t give up.

Snow White and the Huntsman Spoof

What happens when you give a creative agency power to create? A full on themed play of a Snow White and the Huntsman spoof to be debuted at our Holiday Party, of course. Check out the invite we sent out to the company, showcasing the parts that people were selected for; buzz marketing is even possible within your own company! This was a video I edited – try to forgive the others on their focusing ability. 

 

Just another reason to love working with a San Diego creative communications agency 🙂

Movember Special

Another year, another Movember – here’s to raising awareness! As I get older I find that I love giving back more and more every year, and what better way to give back than by growing a dirty upper lip and raising money toward prostate cancer.

Here is our week one, day one picture:

 

Oh, and to follow up to my last post, I couldn’t go a week without a phone, I ended up just holding on to it until I bought the iPhone 5.

A Week Without a Phone!

Working in the multimedia industry requires a connected lifestyle – having a smartphone is a must, not having one isn’t even an option. Being connected through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, WordPress, email and every other form of communication you can think of, needs be at your fingertips. Unfortunately, I also have another addiction; gadgetry.

With the release of the iPhone 5 a couple weeks ago, I decided to sell my iPhone 4S to Gazelle.com – I hate the hassle of selling it on my own via Craigslist or eBay. Being that I upgraded last year, I am only available for the partial upgrade on October 8; the biggest downside is I have to send in my iPhone 4S by October 1, leaving me phoneless for an entire week. This presents a problem not just from an online connected stance, but also from a phone call and text messaging side as well.

Personally, I think it will be interesting to see if I can go a week living a non-connected lifestyle; will I spend more time outside? Without having a phone camera, will I shoot more with the DSLR? Will I be glued to my laptop or iPad more? It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.

I will report back in two weeks on how my week of an unconnected lifestyle unfolds.
