Bosavi Headlamps Marketing Material

Posted on: August 19th, 2013 by Joe No Comments

This past spring I had the opportunity to work with Dan Freschl, Bosavi Headlamps inventor and entrepreneur. Here’s a bit about the headlamp

“This headlamp is designed around a lithium-ion battery and optimized for USB recharge-ability and top performance. It charges up to 80% of full capacity in about an hour and lasts up to 65 hours.

The Bosavi Headlamp’s USB rechargeable battery is equivalent to 900 AAA batteries over the lifetime of the product. Bosavi can be easily recharged in the field from a wide variety of chargers including solar, power pack, and AA Battery Chargers.”

2 Mile Surf Shop

Posted on: September 2nd, 2011 by Joe No Comments

The small, unincorporated coastal berg of Bolinas, CA can be hard to locate, as residents are infamous for tearing down road signs that would help visitors find it. But for those who live there, and those who know how to navigate the winding backroads of Marin County, it has become a Bay Area surfer haven. And one of the focal points of the tight-knit surf community is the 2 Mile Surf Shop. Owned by Drew Reinstein, the shop employs several surf instructors lead by Lessons Manager Nick Kreiger, and an in-house surfboard maker, John Moore. Its name refers to that troublesome sign: legend holds that the very first one to be torn down read “Bolinas, 2 Miles.” Read more here.

The Don'ts

Article by Rachel Swan

Collectively, The Don’ts are an odd bunch. Guitarist Joe Don’t is the skinny, self-effacing hipster who looks like he could have been a centerfold in Paste Magazine. (Needless to say, he hates hipsters — always a dead giveaway.) Bassist JJ Don’t is the failed standup comedian-turned-Internet tech guy. He grew up playing in school bands, and knows all the modal scales by heart. Singer Jonny Don’t is famous for horrendously strange lyrics — like a line he dreamed up during a recent jam session about how “everybody’s mom works at the airport.” Drummer Ken Don’t dyes his hair in bright primary colors, but says that swimming-pool green is his natural hue. According to Joey, he’s kind of a man-witch. Read More…..
