Introduction I am CEO of Vendto, Inc. a digital media technology company located in San Francisco. I live in Wrightsville Beach, NC and grew up in Raleigh. Kitty Kinnin, host of the Sound Palate on the Penquin and I are long time friends and soul mates, and we talk about everything and anything when we see each other. So we decided to do it every Sunday on her show. I also provide folks access to deals on products that will make their lives better somehow...as long as they don't injure themselves using them.

What's the most amount of sand you've ever had in your swimming trunks?

As a surfer I have experienced sand that has been driven by powerful hydrological forces into every nook and cranny of my body. Not sure of the exact amounts.
