On being a self starter and the importance of collaboration:

(Short post, void of as much sap as possible. No promises! I’m trying.)

Every time I come to London, something magic seems to be in the air. I slip on a pair of rosy sunnies and somehow - without even a night to recover from jetlag - I find myself knees deep in a new project, with new people, working towards lifelong dreams. If I’m not lucky, I don’t know who is. Of course - luck is nothing but utilized opportunity - but that’s for another time. 

It’s nothing short of amazing what you can accomplish when you leave the words “when”, “if”, and “one day” at the door - and start making things happen, no holds barred. KKEW was born out of little more than a facebook message thread, an Advertising Week Europe pass, and a fluke of a work description. Now we’re hours away from our first campaign going live with more on deck every day. Shit, huh?

I wouldn’t have been able to pull any of this off to the degree that I am without a team of crazy/loving/supportive people, two in particular - and they’re the best partners in crime I could ask for on this side of the Atlantic. Everyone else is lovely, too. Being vulnerable has been my strongest suit and letting people in on my dreams and fears and the technical bits in between has be one the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. You live and learn in your twenties. 

Anyway. That’s the long and short of it. Super happy to be back into the swing of things here and feel tremendously lucky to have the spoils of the best city in the world (disclaimer: writer’s opinion) at my feet when TFL’s nice.

Go out and dream chase.

Making a little treat for a friend.
Even digitally, I always get the whole sentimental-feel-good bit of mixtapes pretty okay. Makes me happy to share little sonic/visual secrets in plain sight.
One of those teenage habits that never really fell away.
One of the best exhibitions I’ve ever been to, but I’m biased. 
And the fine minds over at one of Shoreditch’s finest, Callooh Callay have done it again. How clever are these oyster inspired cocktail menus? Wish I was in town to snag one of these holders for myself.
(As you should, if you’re anywhere near!) 
If you’re ever in London, make a distinct point of checking out the Dead Dolls House this year. So dreamy. Makes the world feel full of endless possibility and good times, which is never a bad thing really. 
Great cocktails, too.
