It’s been a long while since my last episode of Say Something Worth Stealing and people keep asking if I’m going to do more episodes, or if SSWS has run its course.

I am thrilled to have been part of Adobe’s Project Felix launch with mega-talented creatives from Adidas and POP (although seeing this on a 50 ft. screen at Adobe Max would have given me a minor heart attack).

Microsoft HoloLens published a video featuring the POP team’s holographic match-analysis tool built for Major League Soccer, alongside the other amazing agencies that participated in the HoloLens Agency Readiness Program.
