Remember that Brendan Fraser flick, Encino Man? I love the caveman shock with every confrontation in the modern day. And that’s exactly how the average person reacts when technology reaches another futuristic milestone. Mobile and tablet devices. App technology. Wearable tech. We live in exciting times. But which companies puts branding at the same importance as product development? The days of press releases written in robot speak and incomprehensible model numbers is over. It’s time to combine both form and function.

Howdy. I first started blogging on in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.
