This year is going to be EPIC. Not only because I’m so excited to see all my awesome friends from all over the globe and meet new ones, but leveling it up like no other year before is that 100+ of my friends & I will be staying in the SF Embassy again. This is year two, and it’s going to be bigger & better than ever!

represent Over the course of the 10+ days (yes, I’m staying through Music, too), we’ve got 150 people staying in the Embassy, two brunches and another party/show in a bar we rented out. We have bands lined up, DJs, a photobooth, ridiculously awesome shwag (seriously, wait till you see it) & more. Woop! Note: These events aren’t open to the public… it’s just a perk of being a part of the Embassy.

My friend Amy, one of my fellow Ambassadors, was interviewed on SXSW’s site recently and summed it up best, “I really believe the next big thing in the music tech space will be traced back to the SF Embassy.” Truth. We have a lot of amazing minds in those 150 people – friends who work at companies like Sonicliving, Twitter, Flickr, Apple, Google, Foodspotting, TicketFly and many more (like WilloToons! 🙂 – and the connections and friendships last a lifetime. I already know as a fact from meeting one of my best girlfriends there last year!

Here’s an article written up about us from last year: SFAppeal: SF Embassy Does SXSW 2010

Alright, hope you can all make it to my talk and the maker meetup… especially if we haven’t met yet, find me & say hello!

Are you speaking this year, or putting on an event I should know about? Please leave a comment & let us know.

See you in Austin, buddies. <3

[…] my 6th time there, but this time spoke to a room of 500 people and led a Craft/Makers Meetup [see related post about both events]. Oh ya, and rocked my face off for 10 days straight in full force rockstar/SF Embassy […]
