About Me


I'm this close |----| (not to scale) to doing the things I really want to do, and working towards that every day.


I'm a very interested guy. Not of interest, but interested. There is a lot of things holding my attention, half of it could perhaps be enough.

I'm passionate about creative expression.

I miss the way I saw the world when I was little. I try to keep that in mind.

I like old film, silhouettes, yellow traffic lights at 4 am, reflections in puddles, foliage, crunchy leaves, being outside, the smell of rain, autumn, the stillness that autumn brings, the unknown and the unknowable, the calm before the storm, the storm itself, sand, landscapes, brightly lit nighttime greenhouses, the park at dusk, nighttime skylines in the middle of nowhere, specific locations, unspecific locations, old maps, the feeling you get when you explore places you know you shouldn't be, exploring new paths, road trips, the sound of rain, silence, the buzz of street lamps at night, when pay phones ring even though no one is around, walking for no real reason, possibilities, nostalgia, noticing the little things, escapism, imagination, inside jokes, the smell of book stores, big breakfasts, taking the back roads, building forts, being scared, climbing trees, laughing, the silence between lightening and the clap of thunder, (you), waking up slowly, finding old things at yard sales, peoples eyes in rear view mirrors, old books, randomly running into people I know, random acts of kindness, making anything, street art, urban exploration, doors in the middle of the city with no signs.
