Story
Tagline
Looking, looking, looking for that thing no one else quite sees but matters a whole lot.
Introduction
Hey there! You've found my "outside-of-work" clone. There's probably going to be some crossover, but I reserve this space mostly for my outside-of-work head and probably a lot of non-work related activities. So unless you're into cycling or cat gifs or commentary on cycling or cat gifs, as opposed to advertising and creative business, eh, well I'd hate to disappoint. 

My "work self" on G+ is here.
