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 my 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 where 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. This is where 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’ve worked in the San Diego community as a caregiver, teacher, youth mentor, leader and activist. I was nominated for awards because of my work developing and implementing state-wide and national based models for broadband inclusion programs. I also have been featured on several news outlets and media publications.

I continue to work in the San Diego community on several Google owned initiatives at the same time as operating an Interactive Marketing Agency and helping local businesses grow online.

SDSU Library Street View Virtual Tour

A couple years ago I got an invite to give a quote to the SDSU Library for a Street View Virtual Tour. I was super excited. As I arrived I'm greeted by some really friendly library staff who are seemingly fans of Google. As they gave me a tour and pointed out what they wanted to show on the virtual [...]

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.

CONNECT ON SOCIAL?

I do not spend a whole lot of time on social. It feels too much like a one way conversation and I’d rather build real relationships. In person Human interaction still wins everytime! See my upcoming workshops or let me know so we can connect.
