Talking about Marketing, Tech, Business and Life!

Hello, my name is Louis and I’m a Solopreneur, Creator, Innovator, Marketer, Gamer and a Father to name a few. For those that know me well would include “Futurist” in there as well.

I started my professional journey in 1994 making and selling T-Shirts, business cards and flyers during school hours and installing car stereos for the neighborhood during non-school hours in his friends garage. Essentially I learned to hack into the available resources early in life.

While other kids were busy going to Football games, house parties and hanging out at the mall, I was in the computer lab before school, at lunch, after school and even on weekends. This was when I learned to fix computers, build websites for businesses, use Photoshop 2.5 and editing video with 2 VHS tape decks, the old school way.

I then went on to market and promote the San Diego Hip Hop music scene online from 1997 to 2006, (yes, before Social Media) while working as an intern at Relativity / Sony Records. There I worked with some of Hip Hop’s biggest names, including Kid Frost, 3-6 Mafia, Common, The Beatnuts and Bone Thugs n Harmony.

Year after year, I continued to work in the San Diego community as a caregiver, teacher, youth mentor, leader and activist. I was nominated for awards for my work developing and implementing state-wide and national broadband inclusion programs. I also had been featured on several news outlets and media publications.

Since 2012, I continue to work on several Google owned initiatives at the same time as operating an Interactive Marketing Agency and helping local businesses grow online.

Happy New Year to everyone who will not read this until way after the fact. But for what it's worth... I hope everyone had a good year. Goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018.

Google Removes See Inside and Why We Temporarily Stopped Services

Earlier this year Google decided to make a few changes to what was known as the Street View Trusted program, aka: Business View, aka: Street View for Business. For those in the know, this program has always had a hint of uncertainty since it's inception as "InnerSpace". That's a story for another time. But instead of just doing a name [...]
