32 TRIPS AROUND THE SUN by Jason Johnson

2017 nearly broke me

Can’t thank you enough if you’ve shown me love consistently and I can’t tell you that I don’t miss the ones that have left.

A few false starts but i’m eager to get it right

I know the value of my words or your words will fade and Time will have you looking at people differently, I hope there is always room for dialogue and more memories. 

Sometime not too long ago I was young running around chasing these dreams with a pocket full of change. Jane and Lawrence at the coffee time is where we used to plot and scheme over stale donuts. 

Yesterday I got lost on a street I couldn’t pronounce and I couldn’t be more content with where my life is going. 

Here’s to another trip around the Sun. 

32,000" by Jason Johnson

Mid-Air is where I meditate 

Listening to Drake spill his truth over the most hypnotizing beats, i’m always amazed at how he can summarize exactly what I feel so eloquently. 

I need 40 to score this moment something between ‘Shot for Me’ and ‘Redemption’ with a Kanye feature ...... screaming “Watch out for meeee” 

“Two wrongs don’t make a right but Three Lefts will”, that’s a quote. I can’t be the only one wishing I was more successful, more creative. For now I admire those that were able to get it right. Learning how to be as important as the person next to me without screaming for attention.

Paying more attention to how things connect than just simply fixating on how to get there.

Life is beautiful I'm watching the sunset knowing that it will rise again and that every risk taken brings me closer to fulfilling all my desires and more importantly helping someone else realize theirs.

PLACED ALL MY TRUST AND FAITH IN THE UNIVERSE WHAT’S MEANT TO BE WILL BE AND WHATS FOR ME WILL ALWAYS BE FOR ME. LEARNING THAT WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES MAYBE IT WAS FOR THE BEST. I’M BETTER FOR IT, BETTER WHEN I LEARN FROM EACH MISTAKE AND EVERY DISAPPOINTMENT. 

YEARS IN by Jason Johnson

I’d love to say that when this all started, I knew exactly what I was doing or that I would be where I am today - I didn't

Over the years I've been fortunate enough to able to curate key moments for the city and our clients, Fortunate for the opportunity to have worked with some of the biggest artists in music and entertainment such as; Drake, The Weeknd, Future, Partynextdoor, Chris Rock, Amir Johnson + more to name a few. 

Thankful for the opportunity to be able to serve as a  creative director / event producer on numerous events / activations and our own signature events over the last 10 years.

I never thought that throwing events on Sky Bar's rooftop would lead to launching Chris Rock's movie 'Top 5' across key markets in America and more importantly getting the opportunity to work alongside Paramount Pictures and Scott Rudin.  

Grateful for it all, Just wanted to document some of it.

Group Chat with Jae and Trey Richards by Jason Johnson

Had an amazing time talking with Jae and Trey Richards about finding your purpose and the manifestation of ideas into reality. I brought a close friend of mine along. Meet Umbereene, Artistic Director / Producer of Nuit Blanche.

We're are all trying to figure out this thing called life, wanted to give some words of encouragement and lessons I've learned along the way. 

Take what you need.
