I need to write again

The gist... writing is good for the mind and body.

Goodbye, Summer
It was good while it lasted.

Okay, I don't like summer so I'm glad it's going away.  But I do like the wisps of summer.

Almost Missed This

Yes, can be considered gross.  BUT it's something most of us don't even look down to notice.  It's a matter of survival for ants and part of the life cycle, right?

Good Riddance Summer

I'm no fan of summer.  Sure it has it's merits.  Chasing the ice cream truck. Chalk drawings on the driveway.  Flying kites.  Standing outside in T-shirts.

Cons?  Heat.  Humidity.  Sweating standing still. Headaches from squinting.

Story
Tagline
I'm just a guy trying to enjoy the details of life.
Introduction
I'm a non-linear video and graphics editor.  I write (actually more type), draw, make short films, and enjoy my casual status as an amateur cellphone photographer.

I am a video and graphics editor by day... an artist all the time.

     Rule 1: Pay attention to the details.

     Rule 2: Be awesome and flawless.

     Rule 3: Bend all other rules as necessary.

     Rule 4: Spelling counts.


I'm a perpetual and relentless thinker and I find that this restless state fuels my inspirations to create art, video, or whatever.

I shoot my short films using my smartphone; I like seeing what can be accomplished using commonly available equipment.

I love knowing stuff: Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Edius, Avid, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe Muse, Lightroom, SketchUp, Cinema 4D, meaning of life

I'm an avid photo app user of Snapseed, Pixlr Express, After Focus, Pics Art and Streamzoo on Android.
Bragging rights
2 wonderful kids, 1 beautiful wife, & I'm pretty proud of my croutons ... damn good croutons.
