Our Chief Strategy Officer Went To Burning Man
Virgin burner and former boy scout Jordan Garner, who daylights as Colossal’s Chief Strategy Officer, recently packed his bags and headed west to the Black Rock Desert.
“Nothing prepares you for the experience. You feel like you are living on another planet for a week. At its core, it’s a community”
“Don’t go without pickles! They are packed with electrolytes and help combat the alkaline levels in the dust.”
Breathable harem pants, bandana, and a hat.
Cowboy boots, snakeskin tights, and a leather jacket… shirt optional.
Experiencing my first night bike ride on the playa. Nighttime is an interactive psychedelic circus with the best soundtrack you’ve ever heard. I couldn’t stop laughing — and howling like a wolf.
Nugget of Wisdom
Burning Man renewed my faith in humanity. It showed me a sense of purpose, with humans getting back to our roots through rituals and the absence of technology. I learned that there doesn’t have to be a rhyme or reason for everything; it’s beautiful to see people just being creative for creativity’s sake.
