Why, hello there. My name is a Lou Lesko. Somebody once called me a polymath, I slapped them, and then looked up the word in the dictionary to see what it meant.

What I do for living is run a small company called BlinkBid. Actually, I don't run it all, my business partner Chantal does. She's the adult out of the two of us. My role is as founder. The company was born from the idea that creative professionals should have an easy to use yet powerful business tool to navigate the esoteric complexities of photo and commercial production. Which I did for the first twenty-eight years of my career. It all started with fashion photography at the age of nineteen, and then moved on to photojournalism, writing, directing commercials, and a three year stint at National Geographic. There's more to the story, including graduation from the writing program at the University of Southern California, a few published books, and a few awards, but rambling bios are like vacation pictures; they only mean something to the person that created them, and their mothers.
