Everything But The Dog

I first interviewed entrepreneur Chris Kelly for the Topanga Messenger in May, 2012. Ten years later, I sat down with him again, as he reflected on how his philosophies of life, creativity, and mountain biking have built more than a business, they’ve shaped and sustained a thriving community. My story appeared in the April 29, 2022 Spotlight section of The Canyon Chronicle

“None of us are perfect, but all over the place in every community and field of endeavor, there are people who are working generatively with the challenges before us; meeting them, rising to their best human capacities — at least on their good days — and creating new possibilities and realities. They’re not publicized, they’re not investigated, but that landscape is as real and important as that landscape of everything we can point out as failing and corrupt and catastrophic. “
