The shooting star that destroyed us

Sat down tonight with some nostalgic tunes from my high school days (think Senses Fail, Finch, and more). Thought about all the fun I used to have jamming out until the sun came up, creating image manipulations and digital paintings. It’s been well over a decade since I got lost in photoshop just creating artContinue reading “The shooting star that destroyed us”

Nā Pali Coast on the island of Kauai, Hawaii

Spent an afternoon hiking around Ke’e Beach and the Nā Pali Coast on the Kalalau Trail. Incredible sights to be seen as this part of the island is a rainforest

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars toContinue reading “Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.”

Famous quotes without attribution

I love quotes. I love quotes because they’re often short phrases I can use to help both myself and others make sense of certain situations. They can help others know that what they’re thinking about or experiencing is often something that others have experiences in the past. We aren’t alone in out plights, and youContinue reading “Famous quotes without attribution”

Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia

Of course, the Appalachian Mountain Range isn’t the tallest or most extreme in the world, but they’re still amazing and IContinue reading “Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia”

Waiting to be known

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. – Carl Sagan Star trail photography really fascinates me. While it looks like the stars are all moving at different speeds, what we’re really looking at is the rotation of the earth on its axis. The axis point is the spot where you can see little toContinue reading “Waiting to be known”

Frozen Night 02

Spent some time driving around late one night after a snowstorm in southern New England. The snow had ended and sky cleared up just after sundown so all the snow froze on the trees. An absolutely gorgeous night. This was taken right on the border of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, in Adamsville.

Both myself and my cat Marv, kinda got roasted by Jesse

For those who don’t know, I work at a distributed company called Automattic. Once a year, virtually all our employees descend on a central location (like locusts) to work together and have a blast. At the time of this post, I believe we’re a little over 400 people strong making the web a better place. Also atContinue reading “Both myself and my cat Marv, kinda got roasted by Jesse”

Big Ol’ Blue

Spent some time with some of my Automattic colleagues exploring the Canyon Resort in Park City, Utah. Can’t get enough of the sky, especially when one can experiment with so many different foreground elements.
