Our Friends & Family Playlists showcase the musical interests of friends of BRL Coffee Co. These Spotify playlists give the much needed pep in the step to get our contributors' days off to a great start! This week we're excited to feature a playlist from one of BRL founder Neil Jackson's best friends: Jeremy Po

Jeremy's morning playlist is curated with songs that evoke memories of the past and songs he's into right now. He usually listens to music that's a bit more upbeat and with a funk to it and to him, these songs channel that vibe perfectly! He would probably start his morning with this playlist if he was about to go on a run or if he wanted to dance in the shower.
Work that shower shimmy, Jeremy!

Name: Jeremy Po
Hometown: San Diego, CA
Occupation: Design Director for Oyster Holdings & Creative Director for Bluebird Creative Group

 How do you take your coffee? Through trial and error I've realized I enjoy coffee black the most.

What does your morning routine usually look like? I usually check my phone and emails, stretch, run 3-4 miles, and walk our dog Desmond with my wife, Jackie. Then I shower, eat a light breakfast, then drive to work.

When did you start drinking coffee? I started late, around 2007 after I met my wife. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but I enjoy a cup sometimes.  I do like the nuances that coffee has, like wine. 

Do you have a childhood memory that includes coffee in some way? I remember the smell of coffee after church ended when I was a kid. They would have snacks ready and I would always wonder what coffee tasted like because it smelled so good. My parents wouldn’t allow me to drink it since I was so young.

What’s your favorite thing to do on a day off? I love doing food & shopping tours. Checking out restaurants, food trucks and doing some shopping or thrifting around LA. 

What’s something you want to do or do more of in 2021? I want to be able to travel internationally again.
We appreciate you sharing your playlist with us, Jeremy. Here's hoping for more stamps in your passport in 2021!
