Ethnic AF
And proud of it.
I’m a first generation son of immigrants from Baltimore. Our three children were all born in San Francisco and we want to raise them here as well. Recently our family made a big move that hopefully keeps us in San Francisco well until our kids are in college.
As citizens we are committed to investing our time, energy, and soul into building and supporting what we love. Puneet has been working for the community in San Francisco, first as a social worker and then managing a team of social workers, for fifteen years. It’s extremely hard work and I don’t know how she still does it. It’s a testament to her strength and I’m lucky to be around her.
My life was forever changed after experiencing the arts, music, and events of the Bay Area. It’s been 20 years since I started producing experiences in 1998. And I’m still here trying, failing, and learning - but always working. Now the events I produce touch 10,000 people a year and through Up All Night we’ve purchased nearly a quarter of a million dollars of tickets for our members from independent promoters and venues in just two and a half years.
Our family is very fortunate and we are looking forward.
2018 is a big year for everyone in this country.
The upcoming House elections are the next best chance for progressives to regain power in our government. There’s significant momentum to support great people that have stood up to make a difference. Puneet and I were excited to meet people like @mikelevinca @daveminforcongress who are running to win California District 49 and 45 respectively. They aren’t career politicians. They are everyday citizens trying to impact the direction of this country.
Recently we have been working for Swing Left. @swingleftorg helps you find and commit to supporting progressives in your closest Swing District so that you can help ensure we take back the House in 2018. Whether it’s donating, volunteering, or spreading the word the time is now.

Invest your spirt into building where you want to live and impacting the change you want to see.
This is our home too and we aren’t going anywhere.
Thanks @theholymountain for the amazing 📸

Thanks to everyone for coming through and supporting The Do-Over last Sunday in SF. It’s easily the largest and most diverse Hip Hop and Dance music event in San Francisco. We had mad flavor with #realdjs including Jazzy Jeff, TroyBoi, Jubilee and more outside to Tony Touch and Jellibean Benitez inside.
Not everyone understands that closing a city street for a block party is both very special and technically challenging. We don’t get extra days to set up and tear down. We are up early in the am and then break down that night.
Our teams work so hard on the details to make sure the experience is on point - from working with the Fire Department so that everything is to code to stopping sales way early so our event isn’t too packed and guests have a safe and enjoyable experience.
Big props to The Flavor Group team for running production and marketing especially Shawn, Liz, Matt, Andy, and Alessandro. Also props to the Up All Night team for running ticketing and support including Rob, Ryan, Yulin and Joey. Can’t forget true SF heros Derek Hena, for his help with the city and production, and our family at Monarch for running the bars. My Do-Over brothers Jamie and Chris are some of the dopest people I’ve ever worked with. Thanks for letting my teams work with your baby. Last but not least thanks to my boos Puneet, for holding down the kids while I’m yelling at porto pottie vendors, and Fran Boogie for his endless Fernet-Branca shots.
I'm proud that 19 years later I'm still working to impact the culture of this wonderful city - the home of my children and all of my families. First three 📸Neil Yuzon. Rest is me.

While y'all be watching the eclipse I can't stop watching these moons 👀🌝🌚😂

Vibes. Off the charts.

I’m a terrible pilot.
2 of my first 3 flights resulted in some pretty epic crashes.
But I’m getting better.
Instead of purchasing a medium range Canon or Sony SLR I opted to purchase a flying machine with a camera.
It was an impulse buy and I was sweating in the store a little when I bought it on the company card. I filed it under Office Expense cause that’s what all the good CEO’s do.
I definitely feel like I’m living in the future with this elegantly designed flying machine with a 4K video camera that can fold up into the palm of my hand.
Did I mention it shoots in 4K and FLYS? That is insanely high resolution (this video is not as it's compressed). But back to the crashes.

My second time flying I flew into the side of my parents house in Baltimore and broke the camera. 2nd time! I love a challenge so bought the parts online and fixed it myself thanks to some YouTube videos.
Super excited about a successful repair job I fly again the next day and after a nice 30 minutes of flight I flew backwards into a tree at Jackson Park in Potrero Hill.
I had to throw its flight case 25ft in the air trying to hit the branch the Mavik was stuck on while not smashing the Mavik. Here I am late for work throwing a flight case at an Office Expense stuck in a tree while some company having an offsite at the park looked on laughing. After 40 minutes and 150 throws I hit the branch just right and the Mavik fell down into my arms with no major damage. Flying great !
My wife won’t let me buy a dog so for now this is our family pet.
Hit me up if you have any questions and I can tell you exactly what not to do given my illustrious experience.

Happy 3rd Birthday to Mr. Boss aka Ladoo Singh aka #6ftKumta !!
I know you like your Mom more but I'm working on ways to brining you over to the Prem side 😂👊🏾👶🏾

While being reminded of how fortunate I am, amidst so many incoming birthday messages from across the globe, I thought it timely to tell you a little story.
In 1999 I met this raver hip hop queen, and after the most arduous courting dance ever we finally started dating. In 2006, eleven years ago, we got married with four wedding ceremonies over two coasts totaling nine events. We are so lucky to have three beautiful children in our lives, the support of our parents and siblings, and the friendship of people we’ve called family for decades.

The reality, however, is that the work that goes into two careers, three small children, and keeping the fire burning with your lover is immense and can be so hard. The last year has been really tough and the hardest in our eighteen year journey. It’s not something you’re going to see on Facebook or social media because let’s be honest, Facebook and social media, while useful with merits (especially on your birthday - ahem), can be a mirage of reality.

There’s a veneer of optimism shared to the world in the pursuit of getting likes, chuckles, hearts and wows. Everyone plays at different levels but the reality is that it’s still a game. Real life and death don’t happen with glossy photos of smiling children or majestic exotic vacations.

Real life happened to me alone with my partner where we made the decision I made when I first met her. The decision to put in work and do whatever is possible to stay together.
We have problems. Everyone has problems.
We are working to tackle those problems and I'm proud to admit that we’ve been speaking to a therapist as part of our journey of staying together. It’s the first time in my life and it wasn’t an easy thing. I’ve learned a lot about myself and it’s helping us look towards each other instead of looking away, helping us get through a challenging time, helping us fight to stay together.

Life can be a fight and getting help is not a weakness. I have no shame in my feelings that wether it’s by family, community, or yourself - do what ever it takes to get any help you can. Life can be a fight and getting help is not a weakness.Help each other. Help yourself. Let me know how I can help

@form was one of the best events i’ve ever been to. Why? Our festie crew was filled with pros from NoisePop, the Battery, Grey Area and Bowdoin (lol), you couldn’t make a better venue than @arcosantiarizona and the lineup had it all including Skrillex, Solange, ThunderCat, Omar Souyleman, Tycho, XXYYXX, Hundred Waters, Health, Moses Sumney and so many more. I was a bit skeptical (while intrigued) about applying to attend an event. But it worked. The most creative, diverse, and happy audience i’ve ever seen camp for 3 days in the desert hills outside of Phoenix. I live a charmed life. hashtag blessed , hashtag raver dad.

You never know who you're going to meet at a Rave above a Burger King. Be open to the universe and it can deliver your best friends. MAHALO ! Happy 40th my brotha @nihal to many more adventures....

Happy Birthday to my one of my oldest friends @brunch_life
You are a gift to this city and us all. Brunch at a Victorian mansion, pedicabs with a Silent Disco to Dolores, closing with an inflatable obstacle course and full bar. Amazing.

With 3 small kids, 2 businesses, 1 smoking hot amazing wife and a perfectly healthy addiction to raving … I don’t have a lot of time.
But as my man Anand said “we are now entering that third quarter of our lives” and I can’t escape thinking a lot about how much time I have left on this planet. There are those friends you are meaning to connect with who have passed on. There are successes you were sure you’d have achieved by now. Now add in a dose of thoughts of raising (and paying for) children while wondering how many really good years you have with your parents.

The whole concoction can cause a bit of a mind fuck.

At the beginning of this year I made a decision to be a lot more focused on time where i’m spending it and who i’m spending it with. I like to think a lot and I also have some good systems in place and a great wife that allow me to experiment.

So for my time hacks I thought about the following:
- what has naturally lined itself up to be taken advantage of
- what can compound multiple activities together
- how can I do this and not upset the delicate scheduling balance of family and business

Right away Snowboarding jumped the fuck up. How many activities can deliver the the joy of gliding across fluffy clouds, while drinking beers, and also be an unbelievable work out? Yeah. Exactly.
Click the link in my bio to read the rest.
Let me know what you think.
Hope this motivates you to try some crazy shit. Just don't send me the hospital bill.

After a brief hiatus we are back !!#FlavorGroupFriday
Beautiful park day. Getting it. Happy Spring.

Good weekend with Team Kumta.
9th Annual Satyanarayana Puja. With my natural inclination and attraction to chaos, semi regular cosmic alignment is always helpful.

For my man Jonathan Moore all I can do is celebrate your life and memory as being one of the most down, kind, and real brothas I have ever met in my professional career.
This photo brings back so much for me and includes Grand Wizzard Theodore, Jam Master Jay's Brother Marvin, and your partner back then Marcus at an Red Bull Music Academy event in SF. Looking back at this photo from 2003 it was really the beginnings of helping build Red Bull's entire Culture Marketing program - special shout out to the main with the plan Kurt Sonderegger.
We were brought together by RBMA which was still developing and had no global best practices. Interestingly enough our work doing our own global hip hop programs for the brand, Big Tune for you and Beat Riders for me, is what kept us connected in the beginning. We were always scheming and comparing our programs while talking about new hires, changing policies and more. This was a huge inflection point in my career of growing from a hustling promoter to a leader of an event marketing agency and I will never forget having that shared experience for you. My condolences to your family and our global community. We lost a real one. Until the next. Rest In Power. #tbt

Happy 2nd Bday Shaan. Hopefully you and Ishaan have stories as crazy as me and your Dad ... on second thought you are never allowed to hang out with him for the rest of time 😂😂😂

Time is short and you have to make it work for you. This winter has had amazing weather and we've been chasing the snow. You can see the untouched terrain and more importantly the massive smile on my face. #timeforyou
