Thanks for the invite, +Rob Gordon!

I founded Vivid Bamboo (, an interactive technology studio specializing in web design & development, custom web programming, mobile app development, and web technology/marketing consulting for small businesses and start-ups.

I also do live rock aquaculture down in the Florida Keys, and have a marine aquarium-related web project on horizon.

Feel free to circle me if you'd like to connect and chat further. Cheers!

Thanks Rob!

For those interested, I'll likely be posting more about the live rock project after the first of the year, so circle me up.

And, until I create a Vivid Bamboo brand page over here, we can be found on Facebook:

Busting out some good beer for the holiday. Cedric's Brown Ale all the way from Biltmore Brewery in Asheville, NC. Had to bring some of this tasty stuff home after having it while there.

Same here. The wife and I spent a great day at the Estate back in Sept. Pricey, but neat to see, especially the House.

What did you think of the Estate?

I think you can order beer and wine on their website, fwiw. We brought back a nice bottle of wine and some of the ale.

Bragging rights
A few times each year, I travel down to the Florida Keys to work on a coral reef restoration project, which I am very proud to be a part of. Recently, I started my own aquaculture business/project in the Keys where the focus is building an artificial reef that is beneficial to surrounding natural reefs and providing a sustainable source of live rock to the aquarium industry.
