The Chapters of Your Life

This started as a brief presentation about intent and photography that my good friend Erik turned into a short film as a birthday surprise during the pandemic.

Creative Mornings Talk

This video from 2013 is long, but lays out who I am and why I think design is awesome. I was nervous as heck through the whole thing.

Sam Smith Tiny Desk Concert

Just kicking back on a Friday night after dinner watching this performance and enjoying it immensely. Gave some applause to the TV when the last song finished but figured I'd extend the appreciation with a link. Thanks for being wonderfully lovely Sam Smith.
