Storytellers

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of storytellers and how they’ve evolved over time.   I’ve been a heavy reader since first grade when I taught myself the basics.  I never really learned how to sound out words, I’d point to words and get someone to say them and I learned to recognize the shape …

Why do I take so many damn pictures?

Good question! Glad no one asked.┬áIt’s definitely not to make money. It’s easy to assume that no one can make money as a photographer anymore with the proliferation of tools that lower the bar of entry, but photography has almost never been about the technical prowess of the photographer. ┬áInstead it’s about telling a story …

Memories

So tomorrow closes out my first week living in the Bay Area- coincidentally enough my cable is hooked up, furniture delivered, and my first delivery of groceries also hit tomorrow. I also want to go on record as saying that grocery delivery is the SHIT. There is no part of me shopping online and having …

On roots…

I’ve sort of been procrastinating which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone frankly. Writing is hard, mkay? Two years ago today I was on vacation in San Diego. At the precise hour of this writing in fact I was in my interview of a certain large Japanese gaming company; it had been bumped from …

It’s been a year already?

I was playing around with updating my site layout when I noticed it’s been over a year since I’ve posted anything. I didn’t think its been THAT long, but apparently my temporal awareness is as bad as my spatial awareness (ie, I’m a clutz). So let’s post something(s)! Something #1 – something old I’m turning …

I like pie!

That is some tasty, tasty pie you see there: apple pie ala mode with caramel sauce. Today was a pretty good day so I decided to celebrate a bit with room service. I’m up in LA for a few days getting to meet the development teams I’ll be working with and trying to absorb all …

Whoops

As I sit here in a dark empty apartment I find myself wishing that I had more lead time on the move. It retrospect, it probably woulda been better to pack/ship everything a week early and meet it here instead of being here a week before my stuff. Oh well. It’s pretty much camping with …

Twas the night before

So here it is the eve of my flight and all I can manage to feel is bone-deep weariness. I’ve been burning the candle at every possible end to get ready for this and now that it’s finally here I’m not even excited. I haven’t decided if this is good or bad; half of me …
