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. 

 

Blonde on Repeat by Jason Johnson

The Sun illuminates and the shadows become clear

In and out of day dreams searching for a better tomorrow 

I took a trip to get away.

Still tripping over the small things, still looking for meaning in every single detail. 

Lessons turns into habits that becomes evident in our mannerisms. Its no wonder why i'm recluse. Mentally exhausted trying to maneuver through the minefield of everyone's ego, 

And every time I wave a white flag someone sets fire to it.  

I remind myself that nothing is more important than my sanity. 

Creating tomorrow, while appreciating the past. 

Out in The Desert I found clarity,

Wistfully Staring into the vastness of the landscape, hoping a sign or message would appear. 

The Universe tends to give us only what we can handle, or so i've been told, I now find solitude knowing that i've dealt with every card that's been given to me. 

On the bathroom mirror I wrote " Be Open, to what may come next and eventually you'll find a way".
