hey friends, the last couple days I've been working on transcribing my "10th grade" sci-fi story. I really don't remember the story at all, so it's been fun discovering it as I go along. here's a few things I've noticed. • there's a LOT of cross-cutting between...

hey friends, quick post today - I wanted to share my most recent "Found in Kitsap" essay with you all. "Early Mistakes & Lasting Lessons" is a recounting of the rough start I got off to with the project. often I feel like people, myself included, present...

hello friends, I hope you all made it through tax season okay. for me, it was a breeze - but that’s in large part due to lessons I’ve learned… the hard way. but this blog isn’t about taxes, it’s the next installment in the “jobs I’ve...

hello friends, sorry for the lack of posts recently! I was just back home in Bremerton, WA and while going through boxes of old stuff came across a bunch of fun stuff that I wrote in high school and junior high. here's an essay that I wrote...

hey friends, quick post today - my short CERTIFIED is part of a new zombie-themed anthology. please be aware, it apparently VERY gory and not for the faint of heart. that being said, if you like your zombie movies - you should check it out! here's a review. and...

hey friends, recently I started a new side job editing a collection of poetry. it’s something that I never would have guessed I’d be doing professionally. first, I can’t say I know that much about poetry. second, I’ve never edited a collection of anyone else's work....

hey friends, a collection of my some of my favorites from last year. all were taken on an iPhone or a 35mm Holga - it should be pretty clear which is which =) want to see more? the entire gallery can be found on my Flickr page. do...

hey friends, today’s post is a call to action. not only am I going to be challenging each and everyone of you to make a change - but I’m going to be embarking on that change as well. instead of merely being “outraged” by an injustice...

hey friends, quick post today, it's an animation from 1914 called "Gertie the Dinosaur". kind of interesting that one of the earliest examples of "character" animation wasn't with a person, or mammal, but with an imaginary extinct creature. KPCC wrote a post that goes into greater depth...

hello there! this morning a friend sent me this short video on the science of "productivity." it's actually a pretty accurate description of how I manage my time and motivate myself to write. check it out! what about you? do you have any tricks, tips, "life hacks,"...

greetings friends, ever since I started working on “Found in Kitsap” I’ve become more and more interested in 35mm film. there is something very special about the photochemical process. it’s a fascinating mixture of solar energy, organic material, and chemistry. the results aren’t always predictable and...

greetings friends! once again, I’m sorry that my blogs have been less frequent over the last couple months. it’s a curious thing having a “normal” job again. I’d really gotten used to the freelance lifestyle of editing, writing, and snowboarding… and not always in that order. so,...

hey friends, sorry for the long absence. working on a new script collided with the World Cup, and then bled into getting a new full-time gig. I'll write more about that later. but in the effort of getting back into the swing of blogging, here is...
