The New Guy

Just a Click Away

Nov 24th, 2021

Today’s digital landscape has positives and negatives. It’s easy to fall into the black hole that is the smartphone. The daily scroll can be overwhelming, and there is so much to keep up with—social media, streaming platforms, video games, podcasts, music and distressing news. During the 2021 SEMA Show, I experienced a powerful byproduct of […]

Hitting the Jackpot

Nov 17th, 2021

I talked about my passion for car shows in June, sharing the memories I made with my dad at the 500,000 square-foot Atlanta International Auto Show. Year after year, I was up close and personal with the hottest cars of the year. I traveled to the 2021 SEMA Show for work this year, but I […]

A Week in Vegas

Nov 10th, 2021

Slot machines surrounded me immediately after a rougher-than-expected landing at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas. I was cornered, but I didn’t travel four hours for a chance at the big bucks. I flew from Georgia to Nevada because I won a different kind of lottery: the incredible opportunity to visit Henderson, Nev.’s, Green Valley […]

Generating Unity in Georgia

Oct 27th, 2021

The last 19 months have been exhausting. 2020 and 2021 have been packed with pressure threatening to burst at any moment. From quarantines to business closures to political division to waves of social unrest, it’s been a ride to say the least. But even in the darkest times, there’s light. Togetherness was on display during […]

Tinting With a Breeze

Oct 20th, 2021

The hallways of my childhood home don’t reverberate like they used to. The continuous chatter of youth is rare at the Collier residence in 2021, but nearly two decades of memories remain within its walls. As my parents empty their nest and I continue my young career, travel illuminates memorable moments of my life. I […]

Welcome to ‘Jerry World’

Oct 13th, 2021

As the Airbus A321-200 (321) began its descent into Dallas, the warmer-than-usual October sunshine spilled into seat 24A—my aerial observation point of The Lone Star State. The clouds faded and the Dallas Cowboys’ three-million-square-foot stadium stood tall. Thousands of feet above AT&T Stadium—or ‘Jerry World’—I watched fans funnel into the behemoth for game day on […]

Texas-Sized Tinting

Oct 6th, 2021

Everything is bigger in Texas and, for an industry novice, tinting is not an exception. It’s day three here at Pro Window Tinting in McKinney, Texas, and I’m gearing up for a final day of education with owner Jose Chimal. Days one and two provided hands-on experience, technical knowledge and networking opportunities that I will […]

The New Guy—Ready for a Road Trip

Sep 29th, 2021

I visited The Tint Guy in Woodstock, Ga., on May 3, exactly one week after my first day on the job. Five months later, I’m still ‘The New Guy,’ but I have a lot more industry experience on my resume. I traveled to Orlando, Fla., and watched the world’s top tinters and paint protection film […]

Diving Deep with David Karle

Sep 8th, 2021

I created a series dubbed Get To Know Us during my communications internship at The Museum of Arts and Sciences (MAS) in Macon, Ga. The nine-subject Q/A series aimed to give middle Georgians context. What do they do for the museum and why? Today, I throw it back to my time at the MAS and […]

What’s Your Brand?

Sep 1st, 2021

What’s your brand? It’s a question that was tossed from person to person during a Window Film Pros Clubhouse room this month, and it got me thinking about my company’s brand, my own personal brand and the brands of others. I reached out to 11 film stars to dive deeper. My Brand My overarching brand […]
