“Nick Binkley is arguably another example of how music and business can not only coexist but even harmonize and complement each other.”Randy Patterson, Boomerocity (September 2022)
Odds are pretty good that, unless you live in the San Diego area (or have a knack for finding great music by talent who lives far away from you), you have never heard of Nick Binkley. In some ways, Nick is like you and me: We work our day jobs to finance what our true passion is. The late Charlie Watts was able to pursue his passion for playing jazz because of his income from the Rolling Stones. Ronnie Wood can paint because of the same reason. I work a day job to publish Boomerocity. And Nick Binkley? Well, he was an international banker, serving as Bank of America Corp’s vice-chairman and bank board director. He also partnered in Forrest, Binkley & Brown, the Newport Beach, California-based venture capital company. Additionally, he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. But his passion is music and film making.
