Tonight I had the unique pleasure to sit down to dinner with Chris Brogan. Chris and I live near each other and a little while back around Affiliate Summit East we met for the first time. We realized that we lived and worked close to each other and so when an opportunity came to connect I asked him if we could meet up. Chris had a window of time tonight and so after a bit of traffic I met up with him at Landmark Center. We met at Fresh City, but being both carnivores we opted for Longhorn Steakhouse for dinner.
One thing that you notice when you are with Chris Brogan is that he is present. Chris has a way about him that makes you feel that you are the only other person in the room. He’s fully engaged in the conversation even when his Droid buzzes over and over with Tweets, texts and phone calls. We talked for a solid hour and a half about so many things online and off. There is a reason why Chris can speak on the Overnight Success Series and also why he was featured in the Beyond Blogging program and that he is a best selling author. He gets it. He gets people and he genuinely cares.
At the end of the meal I asked him if I could shoot a photo of him for his blog and also for my Photo-A-Day post. He gladly agreed to it and we went out to the street. My intention was to get the famous Boston Citgo sign in the background but I liked how this came out, nice and sharp with some interesting back lighting and also Chris is smiling. That is the Chris I have come to now know, an open approachable guy who makes you feel instantly at ease. I look forward to catching up with him again.
