    On this episode I chat with Dave Kuhl, the creative director and co-founder of the advertising agency Love and The Machine. He shares a ton of great insights on how he got started in the marketing industry, developed his skills, and eventually left the big agency world to start his own company.

    As a writer/creative director he’s produced award-winning, impactful experiences working across a diverse list of the world’s biggest brands such as: Asics, Ram Trucks, ESPN College Gameday, Spirit Airlines, The Red Sox, Jack Daniels, and his marketing team even won a coveted Cannes Gold Lion.

    Needless to say he is a wealth of marketing knowledge and experience. If you are trying to improve the marketing of your business or yourself I think you will definitely learn a lot from our talk. Enjoy.

    This episode's guest, Logan Stone (Instagram @IAmLoganStone http://www.cinestone.com/), delivers beyond expectation. I am so excited for you to hear our conversation.

I have been wanting to chat with him on the record for some time now and after hearing he had finished principal photography on his first feature “Noise and Color” I knew now would be a great time.
    The feature length film is about a disillusioned man struggling in a dystopian Middle America who finds a mysterious videotape that proves the existenc

Magnani Continuum ,

Great job!

Chris brings his unique energy and amazing insight into every thing he does and this podcast is no exception. I wish he was more consistant with his podcasts. I could listen to him and that Michael guy talk all day long.
