  • The Rise of the SPAC: A Look at What’s Happened in the Past 18 Months

    I’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of firms, individuals and other groups in various stages of SPAC transactions, so I thought I would share my insights on what’s happened in the market over this time period.

  • If a tree falls in the forest…..

    You know how the rest goes but the real question becomes. If I don’t post often to carfreebrad, does it really exist? Thanks to the internet, the answer is yes.  With that in mind I wanted to put this post up to welcome any newcomers to the site.  I write here very seldom these days […]

  • Rain Prep- SOMETHINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED(MUCH)

    It’s been almost 8 years since I was a broke as hell grad student living in a new city who wanted to learn what it’s like to live life “Bike First”. I’ve learned SO much over the years but have yet to master rain prep so this video seemed like an appropriate re-post given that […]

  • LAZY REPOST ALERT- SOMETHINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED(MUCH)

    I made this video on October 19, 2011 while living in Worcester, MA. It’s kinda’ sad how much of my rain routine hasn’t changed.  The one positive sign of learning, is my foot solution. I’ve iterated to something that “kinda” works unless it’s really coming down or I go thru a big puddle or ride […]

  • How much has changed in 3 years?

    It’s refreshing to look back to a few years ago when I was surrounded by so many talented and passionate people who had come together, each with our own interpretation of making a positive impact on the world. I don’t know if this video was ever made available or widespread but it’s a great short […]
