Several months ago, I sat in a Andy’s Coffee Shop in Pasadena and talked shop with CJ Casciotta. Andy’s is my favorite diner and it still looks like it did in the 60′s. Plus they shot Mad Men there. It’s a real gem but you don’t have to take my word for it.
I’m not sure when the idea came, it might’ve been why we were talking but then again it could’ve been something we talked about after. All I remember is that after we connected in person and I experienced CJ’s excitement, it was a no brainer to say yes when he asked me to join a project he was working on.
The project was to assemble a group of young bucks, naysayers, up starts, creatives & dreamers to write about the direction of their lives, their creative process and their best advice for peers and those who are coming next.
