I truly appreciate you for getting to this part of the site.
(Or maybe it was the first thing you clicked on since it said not to.)
Anyway, thank you for your interest and curiosity in Live High. This is a project that I truly feel passionate about, and I would like for it to be as collaborative as possible.
Some friends of my close friend were selling shirts that said Live High. My group of friends loved the logo and we started wearing them. Shortly after, my friend bought the company, and the logo started to become associated with my group of friends (within the poker community anyway).
Although I believe the initial inspiration behind the original company was to promote 420 and cannabis culture, to me the idea of Live High always struck deeper. So I branded it with the idea of doing what you love, being happy, the natural high etc.
The apparel and store are still a part of this whole thing, and will hopefully be a way to fund this project, but the message and content are what I’m most focussed on.
Part of what gets me high, so to speak, is creating, mainly storytelling with writing and videos. I enjoy the feeling of connecting with people through sharing stories. I’ll be using this Blog section of the site to write about whatever, in a more personal voice than the rest of the site.
You can read more about me here, where I share my story and explain what I would like this site to be.
I want Live High to be a community.
For a while now, I’ve had this vision of how social media can be used in a way to unite humanity— to inspire us to create real change, together.
I don’t know exactly what that looks like, or how this can be executed. But what I do know, is that it takes compassionate people coming together.
I have this vision of a “good news revolution” so to speak. A community of people on the internet creating and sharing meaningful, inspiring content. A community of people supporting one another, learning and growing together.
I’m sure this type of thing already exists to some extent, but I am looking to create community around the idea of following your passion and simply spreading love and kindness.
I put together a Facebook group here for anyone interested in joining.
I’d like to link up with other storytellers to make this blog a collaborative project.
For the last few years, I’ve been profiling people who embody the message of Live High. Basically following around people who do what they love and then interviewing them on what it takes to live a life of fulfillment. You can check out those stories here.
I am looking for other content creators who want to create stories that work with the Live High theme (passion, love, joy etc.). Above all, I am looking for quality stories. It can be as simple as sharing a personal story and something you learned from it.

Find the Others
I feel like there are other people out there who want to be a part of something like this, or who want to contribute in some way.
There’s this quote by Timothy Leary that really gets me. It sort of makes me stop and remember that I’m here for a reason. Or at least it makes me feel that way. You’re probably curious now, so here you go:
