Here at UGG we’re continually seeking new sources of inspiration. As luck would have it, we recently stumbled across a few awesome individuals embarking on noteworthy endeavors. These folks have talent to spare and we’ve partnered with them to share their buzz-worthy work. Meet our newest inspiration, or as they’re known around these parts: The Creative Council. Keep an eye out for their upcoming projects.
MINI BIO: A Los Angeles native, Geri Hirsch started blogging in 2005 about fashion, music, food, and the arts while working in finance. Her passion has since transformed into a full time job and slew of opportunities and business endeavors, including a clothing line and LEAF.tv. Geri is passionate about sharing and consuming information; beautiful imagery, videos and gifs, and loves disruptive technologies like Instagram and Pinterest.
MINI BIO: Three friends were inspired to create the Modern Gypsies after several years of extensive travel together. Their goal is to complete a series of “compassionate adventures” as they call them, where they push themselves physically, but most importantly highlight the many faces and stories of people working to change the world. It is their hope to inspire individuals to explore both themselves and the world around them, awakening the compassionate adventurer in us all.
MINI BIO: Sam is a photographer and educator based in New York City. He’s a regular explorer of forgotten, abandoned and under-appreciated places as well as a contributor of NY Magazine, Time Out New York, The Village Voice and Gothamist. He also serves as an adjunct instructor at NYU, where he teaches classes on digital photography.
MINI BIO: In the past year, Zeph Colombatto realized his passion of photography and all that pertains to lensmanship. He loves all aspects of photography and aims to emulate those that have influenced his knowledge of the field – from Herb Ritts, Annie Leibovits, Bruce Weber, and Tim Heatherington, to John Milich, his father.
Zeph’s blog is an extension of whatever adventure he’s currently on. His world extends between the three coasts of home (Hawaii, California, and New York), the world of menswear, fashion, traveling, building relationships and meeting new faces.
MINI BIO: South Florida gal turned Brooklynite, Keiko Lynn lives and works in Park Slope, NY. A blogger/designer/entrepreneur triple threat, she’s always looking for adventure – her favorite way to appreciate city life without getting restless. Keiko has a passion for giving back to the community and she creates on a daily basis, be it clothing, makeup artistry, or writing. Her friends joke that she’s always surrounded by woodland creatures, but she has yet to figure out how to make them house-friendly.
