Journeys

The travelogue of someone who likes to travel. A journal of journeys, if you will.

  • Farewell, Pennsylvania!

    September 3, 2014

    After much thought and prayer, our family has decided to move back to Upstate New York.

  • 2013 in Review

    January 15, 2014

    2013 was relatively uneventful. There weren't any big events. I had such little recollection of what happened in 2013 that I had to reference my Facebook timeline to write this.

  • South Bye Southwest

    February 22, 2012

    South by Southwest holds a special place in my heart.

  • It’s Simple, Really

    February 21, 2012

    The river of life is twisting, unexpected and wild.

  • New Things and Blessings

    April 8, 2011

    This month’s challenge to do something new every day has been difficult given my busy yet monotonous routine, but I’ve already found it to be profoundly rewarding.

  • Meeting The Lonely Man of Winter

    July 1, 2010

    I listened to a song the other day that I’ll probably never hear again. I listened with four people I’d never met before in a place I’d never been and will probably never return to. There I was in the sweltering heat of a Brooklyn summer evening, drinking hot tea and eating chocolate chip cookies... Read More

  • Moving Fast, Missing Beauty

    April 8, 2010

    Since taking this new job, I’ve been riding the train in to New York City every day; a new experience for someone who has worked out of the house for the last five years. It’s all pretty much ritual: purchasing the tickets, finding the best seats, perfecting the timing of it all. One of the... Read More

  • Chasing The Rainbow

    March 2, 2010

    Well, it’s official. After nearly five years of freelance web design, I’ve been recruited to join the staff of Rainbow Media (Rainbow owns several large entertainment brands like AMC, IFC Films, WEtv and the Sundance Channel). Starting March 8th, I’ll be the Director of Product Development at Rainbow Media, responsible both for exploring new Internet... Read More

  • Our OBX Trip

    May 11, 2009

    Good friends of ours organized a trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The house we rented was beautiful and gigantic and normally very expensive, but splitting the off-season cost seven ways it only cost us a few hundred dollars each. We did so much during the week that I could ramble on and... Read More

  • Weekend Update

    June 14, 2008

    Well, now that blogging is a bit easier, I may just do it more often. It’s been a busy week, which seems more common these days. Between getting Simply Recipes running on the new version of Movable Type, finishing/launching the new Oxford Valley Chapel website and several other sundry tasks, I didn’t get much sleep....

  • Out And About, With Illustrations

    April 30, 2008

    Haven’t done a very good job at keeping everyone up to speed with our goings-on, so I thought I’d write up a little something and show off some of my more recent shutter-fication. We had to leave early Saturday morning to make it up in time for Sarah’s baby shower. (She’s due any day now.)... Read More

  • SXSW: A Critical Look At OpenID

    March 10, 2008

    Arguably one of the more interesting panels here at SXSW, A Critical Look at OpenID gave people the chance to ask a lot of question that as a non-developer I found relevant. The panel opened with a helpful comparison of OpenID to email. Your email address tells people something about you. (@gmail.com tells people you... Read More

  • SXSW: The Zuckerberg Interview Fiasco

    March 10, 2008

    I really wanted to see Anil’s presentation on Designing for Freedom. I had heard that Mark Zuckerberg’s speaking skills were lacking, and Anil had recently won Battle Decks. But since my wife has been a Facebook junkie since it’s near-inception, I thought we’d go and give her something interesting to tell her friend’s about. Boy,... Read More

  • SXSW: Day 2

    March 10, 2008

    Kick ‘08 The day started out well with Kick ‘08. (It didn’t hurt that we crashed early the night before.) About 150 people showed up in Palm Park, and almost everyone played. True to Anil’s word, no one was picked last. Team 1 picked some odd name and Team 2 (my team) stuck with ‘Team... Read More

  • SXSW: Prologue

    March 7, 2008

    Well, if I could boil the last few days down into a word: DELAYED. Our flight was rerouted from Dallas to Louisiana, where we had to spend the night because of a ice storm. We finally made it to Dallas, but we missed the new connecting flight they scheduled for us. Finally got there, only... Read More
