London

11.09.2008 · Posted in Autobiographical

I’m in London. 29 and I’ve finally ventured beyond North America. I’m traveling with my friend, Fabian, who knows the city rather well – which has proven quite useful. In two days we’ve been to see Saunders and French at the Drury St Theatre for their farewell show. In fact, we saw it the night ...

My Directorial Debut

05.19.2008 · Posted in Autobiographical, Technology

After seeing Joseph Jaffe record himself on his fancy Flip, I had to have one. It was last month at an event organized by Tim Brunelle for his Future of Advertising class at MCAD. I put this together today after fighting with iMovie trying to figure out how to make the playback speed faster and ...

I was tagged by my friend Tim Brunelle, to post this meme. It’s been a while and this one looked fun, so I’ve obliged. Others in this storm include Matt Dickman, Valeria Maltoni, and Ann Handley. 4 PLACES I’VE BEEN In the shower of the Presidential Suite at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. Just ...

Me?

03.26.2008 · Posted in Autobiographical

I’ve never been a fan of school. I was always too antsy to sit through class. I was rarely interested in what the teacher was talking about, but tried desperately to convince them that that I was right there with ’em. In high school I used to go to an extra class in the morning, ...

My Last Day of Work

02.22.2008 · Posted in Autobiographical, Work

My last day at the agency is here. Emotions are running through me; each of them trying to squeeze their way to the surface. Excitement, happiness, fear, anxiety, nostalgia, remorse, gratitude. This is the first time I have quit a job in eight years. (I had been laid off from my previous two employers.) I ...

Design

Apple – MacBook Air – Design I’ve been a diehard PC user since I was four. I’ve used Mac’s here and there over the years, mostly in school and at the workplace. I’ve never felt totally comfortable with them. Either the software I need is available for the Mac or I feel like the options ...

Made in America

12.19.2007 · Posted in Autobiographical, Opinions

I don’t intend on getting into what it means to be “Made in America” as there are countless arguments and nuances in every position, however I heard something I thought was funny today while sitting in the service lobby at the Nissan dealership while waiting for my car to be repaired: “About the only thing ...

I’ve been Googled

12.11.2007 · Posted in Autobiographical, Technology

I’ve officially been Googled and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! Google Maps has released the Minneapolis area of their Street View functionality. I had noticed a car this summer as it approached me while stopped at a traffic light near my home. It had a funny contraption atop it. I remember at the time thinking ...

Home Office is the new Homo Operandi

10.01.2007 · Posted in Autobiographical

… at least this Homo’s operandi. I’ve lived in a two bedroom condo alone for the last nine months. Initially I had turned the second bedroom into an exercise area. I went out and bought a free weight set, an adjustable bench, and covered the floor with those interlocking gym mats. In those nine months ...
