Welcome to The New World
It started with a disruption on June 26, 2013.
A 911 call made by your doctor at the medical office would be considered a disruption. An ambulance ride with sirens blaring with my worried wife trying to keep up is a disruption. Spending four months barely able to walk or use the left side of my body. Disruption.
The world I once knew was gone and in a moment, I entered the new world. My new future.
For the next two years, as I slowly recovered from an ailment yet to be diagnosed, I began to explore the idea that there may be a better way to live, to thrive.
It began with exploration. I took a slow 3-day road-trip up the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to San Francisco. A slow journey north, exploring and creating.
This trip inspired me to explore the idea of how changing the way you see the world, can awaken your soul. I chose to see beauty in myself, in others and in the world. I began to help people discover, articulate and express their own stories through a process called, “Story Curation.”
On New Years Day I started a personal photography project, #365moments, where I chose to photograph a moment worth remembering everyday. It developed my capability and capacity to be fully present and learn the art of observation.
Then I noticed a need and an opportunity to help people #createspace. A space to dream, explore and create. A space to connect, to build and to grow.
In February of 2015, The Studio DTSA was opened in the heart of Downtown Santa Ana and it continues to be the space where I explore and create.
On July 14, 2015, my world was disrupted once again. This time by a simple calling to step out from the world that I knew into a new world to be created. I stepped down from a job that I loved and had for nearly a decade with people whom I consider family. It was my “Call to Adventure.”
So today, we launch Yellow Ventures. A company focused on exploration and creation. A company focused on people rather than widgets, focused on asking the right questions before answering, with a rhythm of the “here and now” and with the ultimate mission of helping people help people.
Welcome to the new world. We are here to help.
You ready? Let’s Go!
