Getting it in - 4:45am (San Luise Resort VIP suite): After being greeted with a Falkor Petra at the airport / hanging out and shooting over 1,200-1,300+ yards (for hours) with some badass motherfuckers, I finished a good workout and am finalizing / rehearsing my ammunition branding/identity pitch presentation. "Excited" would be an absolute understatement πŸ’₯πŸ€›πŸ€™πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #creativedirector #graphicdesigner #illustrator #designer #artist #creative #view #perspective #vsco #vscocam #philly #philadelphia #texas #work #business #excited #happy #guyswithtattoos #coffee #instagood #motivation #inspiration #freedom #usa #goodmorning #houston #merica #travel

Well! It only took two hours of rocking my apparel/branding (and hat) for the Clark County Fire Department at the office before one of the Philadelphia Fire Department Chiefs (and two others in the elevator) asked me what I do, and told me to take a trip down to their floor to start working with them. Other branding assets not photographed.

Treating myself: My branding and collateral work (with a previous member of Joint Task Force ODIN: HAMMER company) for the Clark County Fire Department (Las Vegas) came today. Over the course of the last month I've been able to balance being a full time Creative Director in the Biotech and Biopharmaceutical industry, illustrate family portraits for a previous Battalion Commander (gone NGIC) of Joint Task Force ODIN, Military Challenge coins and business cards for a new Major within the United States Special Forces Operational Command, brand an entire ammunition company/create collateral/packaging/marketing materials/etc. (presenting in Texas soon), as well as babysit a tank sized pitbull, hit the range religiously, drink my weight in coffee, read three books, get my workout routine in (even if it was shortened), keep a level head and positive attitude, and take absolutely no shit from anyone in the process of doing so. Also! My previous branding for the National Ground Intelligence Center's Global Threat Integration Program sold out multiple times from patch, hat and apparel sales. Should get mine soon. Complaining is for slackers. Get out there. Get it done.

After taking a long run: Explaining to Spartacus the importance of hearing protection and firearm safety: Despite the fact that an overinflated balloon pops at 168 db (louder than a shotgun/jet engine at takeoff/ firearms ranging from 140-190 db), the eardrum ruptures at around 195db.
