Small thoughts that won’t sit still

New York Subway

The train's young black boys are the most powerful things in the world. They only know this truth vaguely. Their awareness infiltrates the way they tie their laces, or lift their collars, or call their ladies "Miss". They vibrate, these boys. A rhythm naturally jiving with the simple frequencies of the universe. Young idols....

The Road

The world is not round, man, not at all. It goes on, from mountains to canyons, undulating like a frequency—the rhythm of grand living. You can feel it. Smell it. A lesson learned where the white pines stand back to make way for grass uncivil and flowers with colors but no names. You’ve seen it....

Futerra Couch

The red couch is the oldest object in the office. Other things are made to seem old, as this is the fashion nowadays. Neoindustrial lamps turn up at every street corner as do tabletops made of reclaimed wood. Still, nothing in the office owned space in the world beyond a few years, save the...

The Wonder of MisfitCon 2015

The chairs sat empty on MisfitCon's last night, as did the gin bottles and mason jars. The music that beat the walls for 5 straight days fell quiet. The last of us, only a handful, huddled close together against Ecce's second-floor window, ready to challenge the night. Swimming in our thoughts, we reflected the...

Most Spun Albums of 2014

While most people do the "best" albums of each year, I decided to give you the ones I listened to the most because, well, I hardly ever listen to new stuff just because it is new. I like music that feels timeless to me, regardless of year, and I honestly find myself discovering music...

Misfit Retreat 2014: Cagayan de Oro

I saw a woman standing near the edge of a road in Cagayan de Oro. She clutched her baby as a car packed with foreigners attempted to share the same narrow space. To be true, it was hardly a road at all, as squatters by the hundreds built shanties out of tin and shoelaces...

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...

Made by Few, Made My Week

So, I am right now driving back from good ol' Arkansas (listening to Donnie and Allan talk about buttholes), where I attended Made by Few, a brilliant design conference hosted by my good friend Arlton. The speakers included the likes of Mozilla superstar, Crystal Beasley, the redunkulously talented James White (seriously, check dude's portfolio),...

My Decision To Make the Move to Rails

If you know me, you know my philosophy on the web is all about learning as much as possible in order to fully complete anything I am working on...that means concept, design, development, programming and promotion. Although most of my peers scoff at the notion of working to learn all these disciplines, I have...

10 Places I Will Visit Before I Die

Everyday, I sit at my computer and hammer out as much creative stuff as I can in a day. Most days, that is no problem. But, sometimes, I need a change of scenery, some movement, some action, some newness to stir me. Traveling is my favorite way to get things shakin'. Even if it...

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.
