Some of you my have heard that my pup Belle has recently passed. I knew I wanted to do something special for her and I contacted my friend Tim to help turn her ashes or cremains into art. The day I met up with him to discuss the art, we talked about his new adventure of jumping on a Harley Davidson and traveling around the country. We decided to record a podcast talking all about it before he takes off this weekend. Tim is an incredible human and I'm thrilled to be able to call him a friend.
