Kamran’s bio goes something like this-

Raised by wolves, or more accurately, raised by hippies, I’ve not done a day’s work since taking my clients advice to get into the swag business a decade ago.

Swag. Not Scientific wild ass guess- Stuff We All Get.  Swag. We put logos on stuff. But not just junk- ideally swag worth stealing. 

 

Shamelessly ripping off fight club, even down to the nine rules, I’m on a crusade to use swag to create intimate,authentic,&unexpected connections between tribes
