Remote Year Month #10 in Review: Medellin

    0
Medellin was truly AMAZING. My perception of the city before arriving was primarily created through watching Netflix’s Narcos. That said, it is so different today from what it was when during Pablo’s time. With flourishing tourism, the feel of the city has changed completely, with incredible restaurants, art and activities. I would definitely say somewhere worth going back to.I spent a lot of time working out...

If you’re reading this you’re probably a good friend of mine or maybe an old friend/classmate/colleague that I haven’t talked to in years save for a few Instagram likes and Facebook comments. You may even be a new friend trying to figure out where I lie on the crazy spectrum. It’s okay, I probably have stalked or will stalk...

Why We Have a Love Hate Relationship With Social Media

    1
Why is it that we love to take pictures, yet hate pictures were taken of us? Why is it that we are quick to point out the flaws of others but fight to defend our own flaws? Why do we seek friends and likes in social media, yet, we demonize social platforms?It is because we tend to love others and hate ourselves. We either put...

The Sun

    5
Mae Ra Moe, Thailand. 2018.  Today, once again, from a tent on a beach, at 6:42am, I watched with amazement, the sun presenting itself to the day, as each time is the first time. It reminds me of the opportunity we have as people to enter the day, brand new, with style and grace. There were hues of light blue, purple, orange, and pink that...

Side Tripped Out

Really the only kind of problem I’ve ever had is a first world problem. Maybe the one that sounds the most ridiculous is that I’m exhausted from side tripping. But looking back, it’s been an amazing two weeks. Joey visited (!!!), we went to Phuket & Phi Phi, and it was an absolute dream to travel together and explore these beautiful places. Ok, in reality...

Retrospective Feb 11 – 24

    2
  A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. — Steve Jobs Last week was missing a post because I decided to switch to a...

A DAY IN HIROSHIMA & MIYAJIMA

    1
Leveled by an atomic bomb in 1945, a visit to Hiroshima provides invaluable insight into the devastation the city and its people faced, while also providing a sobering reminder of the dangers of nuclear warfare, a reminder that seems more pertinent than ever in recent months. Just off the coast from the city, the island of Miyajima offers small town charm and is home to...

Food is a Journey

    1
Dining at Siete Fuegos last night was a beautiful experience for many reasons. Almost least of which was the food… A 90 minute drive from our home meant we had to be serious about it from the start. Our driver Fernando was the perfect person to share stories of the wineries, industry, people and landscape of Mendoza. He’s grown up here and has spent 20...
