These are IDEAS WORTH SPREADING.. from Someone worth Spreading Them.
My good old friend Sean Talkington recently reached out to give me some feedback on my site. He wanted to contribute some content that he thought would be valuable for the site.. From Sean “These are a few of my favorite episodes from ted.com. they have some great speakers with awesome ideas. your site looks great! thanks for the inspiration”
Here is what I know about Sean Talkington. He is a true California Native, the man and one of the funniest people I have ever had the opportunity to spend time with. He used to be in a moped gang but I think he spends his time pedaling these days.. I met Sean through snowboarding.. We used to shoot photos together and he was always so motivated to get out after it.. He was the kind of photographer that would go out and shoot, then do everything in his power to flip the photos into a full article in a magazine that would fully promote the riders. I truly appreciated that.. Shortly after the snow-photo gig Sean moved on to start an artist movement and apparel company called FUN, Friends United Network or FartminusF. They continue to deliver some of the most amazing artist driven tee shirts and remain consistent with benefiting everyone involved. These tee shirts can be found in some banging stores nationwide including Urban Outfitters. Lately it looks as though he is working on a project called Bike Blood. Want to know more? Check out this full interview we did with Sean from a little while back on SNOWREV.
That’s kind of a brief scoop on what I know about Sean… He will always be a great friend and inspiration to me.. Here is what Sean wanted to share with you all.
