Reflections of Yesteryear

A 180° shift is how I view the space between one year ago and today.

I think back to my marriage ending, still occasionally floating in my mind’s eye of what came before, during, and after that time. And that particular shade of black; that feeling of darkness when the tears…

Circa Survive, Imaginary Enemy

We all have them: songs, spreading the genres, that we return to for shifting reasons over the years. An earmark of another time. A musical trance that once meant something completely different, but still sticks with us in a fit of melancholy wrapped around new meaning. Its gravity was just…

Remote Working, Take Two

I recently returned from a two week trip across Japan with my good friend. There’s no showing off here: it was an incredible opportunity and I’m endlessly thankful for being able to tag along. While we were traveling, I was dabbling in design work for my business when time (and…

Kaki King, Neanderthal

Sometimes it takes a certain musician’s meanderings to fit the mood just right. For dinner parties, to work to, as background music.

Experiencing Design

As we walked in, I immediately noticed the shop’s clean, indie-inspired typography. You know the kind. Something that could come right off of the Hipster Branding Tumblr blog. But it seemed promising enough and the crisp smell of roasted coffee beans pulled us in. It was hip and kicked-back,…

El Ten Eleven, Transitions

I turned 30 years old this weekend and rang in the festivities with El Ten Eleven at my favorite local venue, the Bluebird Theatre, in Denver. A must see instrumental band! They opened with this song, the title track off their 2012 release titled Transitions.

Authentic Relationships

After a year that held deeply personal relationship strife and struggle, I’ve found myself in multiple discussions over the past 12 months about relationships. Relationships that are intimate, romantic, polarity-charged, and lasting in nature. Topics revolve around what they mean, how we find them, and perhaps the larger quandary of…
