In February I joined the O.C. Writers team as their tech resident expert and marketing blogger. We started working on a long laundry list of stuff to make the site better and start focusing on growth. I’m jubilant to say that things are going well and so far this might be one of the best […]
I had a chance to try out Cava Grill in Irvine, they invited us to check out their new location and their winter menu. So what’s a blogger to do, but join in the pursuit of good and healthy food? At the last minute, the kids ended up coming with me so we made the best […]
Korean chicken wings are amazing. Who would have thought that Koreans make some amazing chicken wings? Every time I go to this store I get some. They’re crunchy, they’re sweet, they’re savory, they’re awesome. I think the Korean name for these delicious chicken wings is: Dakgangjeong. Zion has these ready to go all the time in the […]
One of the things that an online marketing job –if you can call it a job– gives me is freedom. Going places, doing stuff and spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do. The other day, we took off on a Thursday and decided to visit what we thought was […]
The Integrated Marketing Forum is coming back to Orange County in November. If you were following me last year, I attended this great event. I talked about it on the blog here. Register for the November 11 event today, chances out it will sell out. The Integrated Marketing Forum last year was all about mobile marketing I […]

A while ago I showed you a new startup called Motormood, I met them at the Eurekafest 2015 event and I thought they had an interesting concept. Recently they held their launch party at ROC and I was invited along with about 100 other people. The food was great and drinks were themed to match […]

If you missed this event and you’re a startup, entrepreneur, venture capitalist or a community member then you better be at the next one. Eureka Building is home to Eureka Hub and Eureka Events.

I’m starting to get pretty annoyed with Google. The rumors have been confirmed, Google is dismantling the Goolge+ social network. What that means exactly, we don’t know. When it will happen, we also don’t know. It’s obvious why they’re doing this. Google+ has been a pretty barren wasteland from day one and very few people […]
What could be more exciting for an entrepreneur than to meet other entrepreneurs? Doing it over a free lunch, yes, free as in free beer. Oh and why not, let’s add Free Beer to the mix as well. I’m talking about Free Lunch Friday. I’ve told you about it on my blog before and if […]
When I started drinking coffee, I saw coffee just as a booster. I drank coffee as a way to give me some pep if I had a long night ahead or if I had little sleep the night before. I like it with sugar and cream and I admit I’ll go for a Starbucks white […]
You know? I love a good burger. I will go as far as to call myself a burger connoisseur. I’ve loved burgers since I first had one as a kid in Mexico and my step dad called it a “California Burger” It was thick and juicy and had a big slab of cheese. That was […]
SMMOC meets on Saturdays to discuss the latest in tech and social media. These are the notes from the whiteboard from their most recent meeting. You should try to make it tone of the events. I know it’s tough to get up and be there by 9am on Saturdays, but if you are involved in […]
I met Micah Kersh about two years ago at an art show. It was his own gallery and my brother in law Sam was putting a show. I ended up interviewing Micah and I’ve been a silent fan of his efforts to develop the art community. He’s a pretty cool guy and a true artist. He […]
The farmer’s market from UCI moved to the Mariner’s church parking lot. It’s much nicer, lots of space and it feels like a more relaxed environment. The Irvine farmer’s market has been around for a long time now and if you want to meet some of the region’s best food producers, farmers then you should […]
I visited Powercrunch in Irvine recently. I didn’t even realize that they were based out of Irvine, literally 10 minutes from my house. When I think about it, I’m lucky to be around all these companies. Small and big and everything in between, you’ll find it in Irvine. But Powercrunch is more than just a […]
