I have decided that I’m going to start writing about some of my client communications here on this site. I’m under the impression that I need to speak my mind
Folake, Sidney and I just returned from a 6-day vacation to see Mark and Francesca get married in Padernello which is west of Treviso and north of Venice, Italy. We
After nearly three years on the farm, Brian and I have decided to hang our saddles up on the barn wall. Go Farm is shutting down, and I am starting a new position with a local firm here in Beverly Hills (to be named shortly). I have been working for myself for the better part of seven years, after leaving my post as creative director of Media Temple back in the day. I had a brief stint down at Juxt in Orange Country, but have been on my own (or with a partner) for a long time now. And I have to tell you, I'm a bit apprehensive about working for someone else. I'm leaving for Italy in about 18 hours to see one of my best friends off into marriage, and when I get back, I have about 3 days until I start the new gig. That being said, I'm going to be completely forthcoming about the variables in my decision, and about the things that went through my head. In no particular order, here are a few of the thoughts, both pro's and con's:
Don’t have a whole lot of time to write, so this is just a short update to say that Thailand is fantastic, the food is great (albeit interesting at times),
It's comforting to me that I can recount my bachelor party with full recollection, free of regret, and with a story lacking all conventional the seemingly requisite strip clubs, decadence and chicanery. No fights. No strippers. No blood.There were plenty of guts shared. Emotions revealed. Prayers given freely and graciously. And damn, my ass got roasted...
When you drive for an hour each way to work every day commuting, your mind wanders. The drive is nearly the same each day, except for lane changes, dodging poor
I tell ya' man, I'm lucky. Four weeks from now, I'll be married, Insha'allah. (If you haven't met my fiancee Folake, or heard about her, I'll tell you in a minute.) I'd say that four weeks is still a good ways off, but the last 9 months of engagement have kinda screamed along. Perhaps that's due to the fact that six of those months have been spent preparing for a little one. As it is, June 16th is the day I've been preparing for my entire life.
I've always been very particular about grammar. Sentence structure, punctuation, appropriate usage, correct spelling, rules and guidelines; these things have alway stuck out to me as supremely important. That isn't to say that I don't break the rules from time to time, purposefully, and even by accident occasionally, to boot.

I’d love to say that a new design will be forthcoming, but that would be overzealous and ultimately a promise that I cannot even attempt to keep. Over the coming
I’m an anthropologist by nature and education, a writer, swimmer and runner by passion, and an art director by accidental occupation. I never had any intentions of having a career
Things are still just slammed over at the farm, but that’s a good thing, right? Soccer games start for my fiancee’s son Sid in a week, and USC’s season opener
