I started this blog in 2009 as a way to explore and hone in on my artistic eye. By 2011 my blog was being read across many continents and had a small but faithful following which led me to be quoted in the Wall Street Journal for my views about Instagram. In 2014 I finally had enough of my dead-end job at a coffee chain and quit it to pursue my artsy projects (blog, youtube, photography) and moved into the Warehouse Artist Lofts which actually ended up pushing me towards giving it up to work full-time again.

After trying some new things, new jobs, new people, and new websites, I’m back to where I began and it’s 2018 and all I want to do is write about what’s on my mind.
