Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Diary

I spent a recent weekend in Miami, attending the tenth anniversary of Miami Swim. The weekend was fun and very busy—lots of fashion shows, presentations, late (and amazing) dinners and even a few rain storms. I luckily managed to squeeze in some time with one of my best friends and make some new ones and, […]

//by Travis Gibson After months of anticipation and $63 million worth of renovations to the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, owner Shad Khan officially unveiled the world’s largest video boards and pools at EverBank Field Saturday night.

Big Sur

We had been driving for 6 hours with little fuel left in our car and our tummies. But we didn’t care. Or at least I didn’t. Over the next mountain, would be the mother of all places to find myself on our West Coast road trip. A place that I had heard about via Kerouac and once […]
