Meat, with a side of meat. That’s what our May #CMugshot, Jake Sullivan, likes on his breakfast taco. When presented with a blank mug and markers, Jake sought out collaborators and roped in none other than Swiss Miss herself, CreativeMornings founder Tina Roth Eisenberg. This freelance creative director, copywriter, filmmaker, and an all-around nice guy also donates his talents to the #CMSummit16 effort. Thank you, Jake! He’s a busy, devoted father so if you want to pin him down during his off time, you’ll have to try to catch him at Bull Creek.
What’s one thing you’ve been inspired by lately?
What audacious thing would you like to make part of your reality this year?
I want to reposition the act of passing the hat or tip jar for musicians to “paying respect” as the first part of a broader initiative to get musicians paid for what they are so often forced to give away. And yes, I am looking for help.
Connect with Jake!

Our May event may be upon us, but before we get real we want you to meet our latest #CMugshot, Maria Alonso. This production coordinator for SXSW Interactive is a breakfast taco purist, so nothing but egg, potato, and cheese will do. If you happen upon Quickie Pickie on a free afternoon, you might find Maria enjoying beer and some great wi-fi. Make sure to ask her about the secret life of plants!
What’s the one thing you’ve been inspired by lately?
I’ve been inspired by the community of artist, builders, architects and community leaders that have come together to get make Austin an affordable city for everyone.
What’s a big risk you’ve taken in your life that you are glad you did?
I quit my government job to join a group of creative and inspiring people at SXSW.
What’s one way you’d like to incorporate more risk into your life?
I’d like to be more willing to say what I’m really thinking or a regular basis. I shy away from confrontation and I think there is a lot of growth that can happen when you push people to think differently.
Connect with Maria!

We want to celebrate our 3rd birthday with you! This Sat. 11 am - 3 pm.
CreativeMornings/Austin has been inspiring Austin’s creative community for three years now. We’re thankful for all the people who have come to make CreativeMornings a success over the past three years—that includes you!
Let’s celebrate with great beer, great music, and great people!
For our theme of RISK, we’re having two mystery speakers – and attendees won’t know which one they’ll see until they arrive at the event.
