I was paging through Nylon (we keep saying we’re going to stop subscribing to that magazine and then I’ll find something mind-blowing like this) and almost flipped straight past the Kool-Aid colored, full-page, pre-masthead ad. I was still taking cold meds by the handful and thought I was surely hallucinating. But this is the REAL DEAL, PEOPLE!: the Reebok Freestyle is celebrating its 25th birthday by introducing a whole new generation of Flashdancers to the original aerobic high top in a kaleidescope of colors. Hipsters everywhere rejoice.
cool stuff abounds. find your way on, off and around the gridI'm a writer and wide-eyed wanderer, culturemonger and experience collector. Born in New York and raised in Colorado, I've also lived in Sydney, France, Martinique and spent various random weeks and months exploring the spaces between. Possibly as a result, I'm not happy unless I'm on a plane twice a month going somewhere to discover something cool. This is where I'll attempt to collect and share some of the things I see in travel, design, retail, music, film, web, food, style. (I admit, focus has never been my strongsuit.) Day jobs have included years at big city branding shops, little town magazines and a stint heading up marketing for an alternative law firm's San Francisco office. I still have a foot in that pretty little city but my heart resides in Manhattan.
My other gigI'm also editrix-in-chief of TheDistillery, a marketing blog focused on media, design, and brands. It's a place where a bunch of stuff goes in and only the good stuff comes out. Drink up. DistilleryMedia.com.
