Flashback 8 years ago to 2010. this is the hustle that started all my entrepreneurial pursuits: the gypsy picnic. we had 30 food trucks, 30,000 eaters, and a lot of great music like junior brown and delta spirit in downtown austin where y’all are all partying for acl. i went on to write more than a dozen cookbooks starting with trailer food diaries series, selling over 30k copies in the portfolio and managing music event strategy for google. i co-founded a few other popular food/music events like trailer food tuesday’s and side project sunday’s. i’ve let events take a back seat to my publishing projects now.
towards that end i’ve helped several hundred first-time authors publish their books. i proudly serve as the marketing director at authorsource (san diego based publishing company) and i operate a small boutique publishing company of my own (spellbound) that prints only a few metaphysical books a year. i host the get it write podcast and i co-host the wise skies podcast (astrology + numerology), where i also write the monthly astrology forecast. but i don’t think i would have done any of those things if i didn’t have the confidence given to me by that first gypsy picnic. #foodtruck #cookbook #publishing #amwriting #fiction #musicfestivals
