There’s a saying, “what man builds a tower, without first considering the cost to finish it?” – the saying is really applicable to the first part of my career. Back in my 20’s, I built a literal tower, soaring over 100 feet in the sky, without having a single customer to buy the services I […]

I’ve been practicing “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses for over a year now. This morning, I finally hit a milestone that I’ve been wanting to achieve ever since I started playing; playing the opening riff without looking down at the guitar. Having finally attained that goal, I realized something about playing guitar. Part of […]

When I was a young boy, I never really knew what I wanted to be when I ‘grew up’, because I wanted to be everything. Let loose to explore the Columbus Metropolitan Library as a child, I found endless books and magazines that showed me the world at its best. I’m deeply appreciative to my parents, […]

Over the last few years, I’ve been posting photos of a Porsche 944 my mentor, Nate, has been restoring. The process has been one helluva journey, and it’s taught me a lot about life, love, and the effort that goes into making something perfect. It all began some three years ago when I was walking […]

“I could tell you my adventures—beginning from this morning,” said Alice a little timidly; “but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” – Alice in Wonderland In 2019, I found myself watching a beautiful sunset over tiled rooftops in Bali, Indonesia. The call to prayer echoed in the distance, […]

One of the most beautiful transformations to occur in nature is the morphing of the caterpillar into a butterfly. The transformative process is known as “chrysalis”. During the chrysalis process, something incredible happens inside of the cocoon; the entire body of the caterpillar transforms into liquid before reassembling itself as an emerging butterfly, which can take between […]

In a diversion from my usual ramblings, this blog is intended to give a small snapshot into the mind of a creator. My entire life, I’ve loved creating things purely for the love of seeing something emerge from the nothingness. Artists, creators, etc. have all been blessed with a gift – and a curse – at the […]

When I was a child, I remember playing the game called Barrel of Monkeys. The idea of the game was simple; use one monkey to hook the arms of another. Repeat until the barrel of monkeys is empty. As the game progressed, it became increasingly more difficult to grab the arms of another monkey, because […]
