On this site, you will see me mention many brands and individuals, some that I work directly with and some that I just think are doing really cool things or have great products. So in the effort to make my associations as transparent as possible as well as let you know where I am writing from, I have listed the groups that I work with below. This disclosure also applies to other places I write (like Twitter and Facebook). I make every effort to be truthful and fair. All you read here is in my own words or those of guest writers. It is my opinion and not that of those I am either employed, contracted with or anyone else.
