The nice folks in Canada have invited me up to speak at CMW this year and I’m really looking forward to it. I usually go to South By Southwest which is just a few days prior but I’ve always wanted to check out CMW and this is the perfect excuse. Toronto is an awesome town -it reminds me of a cleaner friendlier Chicago.

I’ve only visited once back in 2010 when my film “Cool It” directed by the infamous Ondi Timoner premiered there but I had a total blast and fell in love with the city. Interestingly enough I had 2 films premier at TIFF this year (“Iceberg Slim: Portrait Of A Pimp” and “Yellow”) but I wasn’t able to make the trip.

Anyway, I’ll be speaking on a panel about music in advertising and doing some artist consultations. should be fun!
