After a Carmel High School student died in a drunk driving accident that shook the entire town, I became involved in that community’s cause to curb teenage drinking. The idea behind the Sober Teens Festival is an annual celebration of sobriety where students sign “contracts” with celebrities like Ace Frehley (KISS’ Space Ace), agreeing not to drink until they are legal age.

From 2003 to 2006 I donated my time in the creation and ongoing management of the official Sober Teens website which featured teen battles of the bands, podcasts, videos, photo galleries, forums, and Flash games. Unfortunately, the Festival has run its course and the site is no longer available. All that remains is the logo I did above and this SWISH banner (JK not really).
