Thank you for stopping by.  I am inspired by sharing, diversity in thinking and living.  I believe our life is our art .   I spent an amazing 11 years in New York and attended The Fashion Institute of Technology and studied film at NYU. New York City was everything I thought it was and more.  Gotham  was my first true love. I grew up skiing in the Canadian Rockies ;)  I currently live in Venice, CA., which at times can seem like the 6th borough. I would not feel so at home here in California if it were not for my time in N.Y.C. Living in Venice is like the East Village with a  beach .    My background is in advertising and new media, primarily as a creative/art director.  Heavy.com  and  MyActiveDriveWay  were two huge influences during my time in the big city, because I was part of their inception and growth as creative powerhouses. A do-it-yourself  publishing platform called Uber.com  brought me to the west coast, and I worked with and learned from heads of pioneer social networking and music platforms Friendster and Napster.    I have been fortunate enough to launch  a mobile app , work as a garmento,  brand a grilled cheese truck , and own my first dog since I have been living in California. Los Angeles continues to inspire and Venice a.k.a. 'Silicon Beach', fuels my NY state of mind and pioneering spirit.   I am a creative hybrid —  ecosystem   thinker  in the internet of things that is today.  Futurists  and  altruists  are my  favorite   aliens . I like to hang out with  cultural hackers  ;)  One of my favorite quotes:     "A CONCEPT THAT ISN'T DANGEROUS IS HARDLY WORTH CALLING A CONCEPT AT ALL." -    Oscar Wilde   talk soon,   RUDJ * / r o o j /    email: rudj@rudj.com  social:  @rudjesco
