An important question for creative people of all ages. It's also the title of my most recent book!

Yesterday was World Population Day, an annual event to raise awareness of global population issues.

Welcome back to school!

It's that time of year again - when the long, lazy days of summer become long, productive days in school or at the office. While it can be a hard transition, it is also one of looking forward to the great achievements to come. In that spirit, we just launched a new video for our friends at Fagen Friedman & Fulfrost, celebrating California schools.

Voices from the Sleep

Last night, we had the pleasure of witnessing our good friend and client Bruce Levingston perform at Carnegie Hall. While we have seen Bruce perform in many venues over the years, Carnegie Hall always brings out the best in his programming.
