Fall Catch-up. Let’s go.
This blogging thing is fun, but it’s been taking some diligence to keep up with it ;)
Quite a few awesome things have happened this Fall. Honestly the best thing is Fall itself. I love it. There’s no unbearable heat or annoying snow, and the frequent rains of Spring are a distant memory. What I don’t understand is why I always start to care more about fitness in the Fall. Strange right? Perhaps it’s because the air is cooler and less sweating happens (and less sweat stays due to one’s lack of A/C at home…)
Now let’s talk about what’s going on.
- KO Cancer // I’m honored that I have been asked to participate in the KO Cancer Celebrity Boxing event this year. My opponent will be none other than my very good friend and STATUS CREATIVE co-founder, Jeff Barrett. It should be a pretty good match-up. The event is the brainchild of Frank Perez, who is presenting the event under Frank’s Knockout Fitness.

- TOP 40 UNDER 40 // Now this is a crazy-huge honor for me. My business partner and fellow GR LipDub Executive Producer, Rob Bliss, nominated me for the Grand Rapids Business Journal’s Top 40 Under 40. They decided to recognize me and it’s so cool. The reception event is tonight, and if you want to go click here. You can browse through the special issue below and read about 2011’s coolest West Michigan business people Under 40:
- IDA President’s Award // This is older news, but it’s still really cool. The D.C.-based International Downtown Association honored the Grand Rapids LipDub Video, along with the Grand Rapids Downtown Alliance, with its President’s Award on September 24th. GR Downtown Alliance Executive Director, Sharon Evoy, and I flew to Charlotte to accept the award. She’s such an awesome lady and we had a lot of fun in North Carolina that weekend.
