David is a high-functioning eccentric who thinks in stories, speaks in aphorisms and wields a passion for storytelling that’s unorthodox approaching idiosyncratic.

Then he left to turn his side project, a wedding video company named Bokeh, into a marketing agency. David now develops campaign strategies and content for brands like Google, Instagram, Airbnb, WeWork, DoorDash, Visa and more. David is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, and currently lives in San Francisco.

Today we have an interesting topic to explore as we chat with Johnathan Grzybowski, is the Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of Penji, an on-demand graphic design service that delivers fast turnaround, simple, and affordable.
 
Some of you listening might have shivered a little when I said that, and some of you might have been energized... and it's that contrast that I'm hoping to explore further today...
 
Penji has been named as “top startup to watch” according to Philadelphia Magazine and mentioned in major publications like Success Magazine, Huffington Post, Forbes, and Inc. Prior to Penji, Johnathan founded multiple marketing related startups and worked for Apple.
 
You may notice in the audio that I call this "118." Originally this was 118, and I didn't circle back to re-record the audio saying 119, or a different MilesHerndon credit at the end. Sorry about that. We'll do better next time.

Mark and I got to chat on his show a few weeks back, and with any luck, these two episodes might go live at similar times... fingers crossed.
 
For the past few recordings, I've been experimenting with different ways to record these interviews... I'm loving Zoom for the video side, but not loving the audio... so I'm not sure I have this quite nailed yet. But if you'd like to check out the video, that's available over at YouTube.com/joshmiles, and the audio isn't amazing, but sometimes I have to remind myself that I'm video chatting live with a guy in the UK, five time zones away... and that still blows my mind.
 
SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, Please enjoy my conversation with Mark Hirons...
