Grand Marnier, New York City

•••
I was honored to recently be selected as a Grand Marnier Influencer for the Atlanta Market. As part of my training for the role, I was asked to come to New York City for 3-days, which included brand and sales education on Grand Marnier, dining experiences, and a cool stay at the Dream Hotel in Downtown Manhattan.

The Tanqueray Trunk Show is a 6-city tour by Tanqueray Gin and Team Epiphany, hosted by Fashion and Lifestyle Impresarios, that promotes mentorship through progressive style.

Personal Branding, Blend Out

•••
I recently had a conversation with Grand Marnier about my insights on how to Blend Out and my perspective on personal branding. The term "Blend Out" means to organically be someone that others aspire to know. I always think back to a quote by one of my favorite motivational speakers, Joyce Meyer, that states, "don't be a copy of someone else, instead be th[...]

I'm in a BMW i3 Commercial!

•••
Pretty cool to be in the 2104 BMW i3 Digital Short Commercial. Was fun shooting this - rocking a black SuitSupply suit. Gave me chance to explore a more conservative, clean look. The brand/studio's goal was for me to be styled as a Techy Accountant or Lawyer - I hope we accomplished that!

Miami Life

•••
Enjoyed a trip recently to my second home, Miami and as always, I really enjoyed my stay. From Atlanta, it's a quick flight and when my good friend and colleague, John Vasquez invited me down for the weekend I had to oblige. It's still 40's in Atlanta, so the the sun and 80 degree weather for my Miami trip gave me a early start to explore some spring/summer [...]
