CG Life Likes to Unwind

At CG Life, we believe that life is as much about fun as it is discovery and work. That’s why we recently hosted our sixth UNWIND life science networking event in our San Diego location. What is UNWIND you ask? Oh, just what happens when ten organizations and 350 executives, scientists and friends get together over live music, street tacos, craft beer and science. The result is new friendships, collaborations, careers and adventures. Whether you were there or had something better to do (uh, whatever), check out our photo album to relive the fun!

Why You Should Add Video to Your Marketing Campaigns

Pre-Facebook feeds, I was known as the go-to curator of funny YouTube videos. I was the first to introduce my friends to now-classics such as, Charlie Bit My Finger and Dramatic Chipmunk.
