What is Colabo?

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Is that true?

“Colabo” is short for collaboration. The definition of Colabo is as follows:



collaborative effort


others best interest

in mind.

Investing sweat equity

in projects you

believe will benefit

millions of people.

Making Innovative ideas come to

fruition through collaboration

and love.

I used to think Colabo was a brand, something that was marketable and worth investing my time in. It used to be a team. That was a cool time. But now I’ve realized Colabo is a feeling, or even a verb. Colabo is a quintessential part of who I am so I’ve decided to call my new show exclusively on j1Japan The Colabo Show. I’m always down for collaborations, always.

Time will tell what the future holds but what I do know is I want to interview forward thinking members of society that aren’t bound to the status quo. It seems obvious as things unfold where The Colabo Show (in my own head anyways) is going but that’s what makes it fun. For me it’s always been incovering the unexplained and helping others think differently about concepts ideas that are broken. Come along for the ride. It’s gonna be interesting with the show being produced by J1.
