It's All About Flat-Front Pants: Out For Work founder Riley Folds, and Nick Verreos Last weekend, I had the privilege of giving a lecture/seminar at UCLA as part of the "Closing Day" of the first ever West Coast Conference for Out For Work, a non-profit organization that educates and assists LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender) students in making the transition from college to the real working world. My topic was about "Dressing for the Work Place" and all that encompasses--depending on what kind of job or career the students chose to go into, as well as how important that "first impression" is.

I had a great time with all the students and meeting Riley Folds and the Out For Work board members who devote their time for this very helpful organization.
