"You've gotta work hard at whatever you do, and be inspired by people who believe in you". Beau Lawrence Founder - Ace Rivington
In July of 2000, something very big happened in my life. I sent my first email to India. I had just been hired as an entry level design assistant at Guess Jeans, and besides being told, "Let's see if you last a week", by my hardcore Russian design boss...sending that email is something I'll always remember. That experience was the beginning of my world getting very small. The job would offer me the opportunity to fill passports, meet wonderful people, and explore incredible places I never dreamed possible.
There are many romantic things about San Francisco...but the time of the Beat Generation, and the trouble those guys (Kerouac, Cassidy, Ginsberg & crew) got into has always been a highlight for me. Grab a pint of nostalgia next door to City Lights Bookstore in Northbeach at one of Kerouac's favorite drinking spots, Vesuvio.
