Leaving a lasting impression...

Amplifying positive artists, craftspeople, and business owners worldwide to leave the longest lasting impact possible has been my passion since the mid 90's. When the going gets tough, I stay focused on my mission and primary values: englightenment, evolution, and endurance.

Consulting  - for studios, events, and companies with a positive mission. I regularly visit studios to work with business owners and teams to brainstorm some good, and vital, ideas! Limited availablity for 2-8 hour sessions, ideally onsite.

Conventions & Events - Adding value to your convention or studio event is one of my favorite jobs! Because I have been producing events large and small for over a decade, I'm no headache - only promotion ahead of time, contributing during events with seminars, interviews, video recording, and other activities, and post coverage!

Recruiting & Placement - Helping amazing high quality artists land guest spots and residencies at world class studios is a way for people to benefit from my quality network. Also, managers. The tattoo world needs awesome experienced managers. And serious support team members...

Video Series & Webinar Production - For over a decade Gabe has been producing professional development webinars, and video series that helps artists and businesses tell their amazing stories.
