Rhythm In Design Composition

Everything has sound. Everything. A lesson learned the summer after I nearly failed English over Tennyson’s poem, The Brook. My teacher challenged us to read the poem to ourselves. Euphony, my teacher professed, was the magic of the poem, and our final was to tell the class what we heard as we read it....

Experience is our true Educator

Specialization is the proudest form of oppression. Specialization fosters dependency. A man with a singular talent leans upon that mastery with all his weight, requiring the talents of others to give him balance. The engineer and his family need the farmer, the farmer needs the distributor, the distributor needs the businessman, the businessman needs the...

My Philosophy: It’s Either “Hell Yes” or No

Imagine that you have 1 million dollars to give to a worthy cause. It's your money, you've earned it, saved for it, robbed someone... whatever...and now you have to pick some charity, person or place to give that money. How would you make that determination? Would you give it to the person who asked...

Slow Down Buddy, You’re Doing Too Much.

The world can wait. Yep, I am talking to you. You have too much to do, so many people to please, so many deadlines to meet that you might as well be underwater. This is the point where you have to stop what you're doing and get a little perspective. You, my friend, are one person in...

5 Ways To Know If You Are Stuck In The Rat Race and 1 Way To Get Out

In2005, I worked the front desk of a hotel on Panama City Beach; a typical, thankless job with long hours and low pay. I toiled daily and believed, foolishly, that the brass would one day "promote" me. I imagined that I would be manager or something like it, where, salaried, I would finally wield the power...

Thoughts on Being a Startup Guy

I ran into a high school friend at lunch and among the obliging questions we volleyed back and forth, he asked me what I do. I told him about the business I own, about the different businesses I have started and some of the new business ideas I would pursue in the near future....

Things Change…

Man, so many things have changed as of late, most of which had no real catalyst other than evolution. When I was twenty, all I wanted to do was become a successful writer. On some level, I thought that would just happen; that the effort to make it a reality wasn't necessary because, well,...

Quit your job and go find a tree

So, the other day I had a thought: "If you no longer have a desire to go out on a limb, quit your job and go find a tree." That thought has been vibrating in my head so much lately. I think we all have a belief that at some point in our lives we will...

Interviewed Louis Stewart Today

Although, not many people I know could recognize the name, Louis Stewart (me either), I met him today and immediately thought, "more of the kiddos in my generation should know this guy." When I walked into the interview, mind you I had no idea what to expect as this was a last minute sort...

Ten Rules For Being Human

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period. 2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.” 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments...

About

I am often asked what I do for a living; the simple answer is, I make stuff. I make stuff with my bare hands, with code, with colors, with words. I aid in making the people around me realize their optimum selves. I make my mother proud. I try to make my kids happy and encourage them to contribute more than they consume. I make sure self comes first. I make money. I make my own luck. I make a pretty solid french toast. And I do all that I can everyday to make the world better than it was yesterday.
