yearning to breathe free


I am speechless about one of the core principles of our nation so flippantly forgotten. The Statue of Liberty Monument is the New Colossus, and her name is Mother of Exiles. The full text of the poem stands as a reminder that so many of us who are "born and bred Americans" arrived here generations before. We…Read more yearning to breathe free

Monumental Network


I designed and updated broadcast-ready graphics for Monumental's many daily and weekly online newscasts. My screens, created in Photoshop, covered sports updates, standings, and statistics for D.C.-area teams. My infographics and screens had to remain consistent with both Monumental and team brand identities. One of my more memorable projects was isolating many images of Capitals and Wizards team members to…Read more Monumental Network

I was meeting a client in downtown DC yesterday, and on my way back to the Federal Triangle metro station, I enjoyed the beautiful stillness of this pathway at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

paw-nderous


yes, that is a really bad pun. one of the things i love about cats is their ability to switch from being adorable to contemplative in short order. for all we know, hubert here could be starting at a squirrel outside or reminiscing over the meaning of life. you just never quite know. at any…Read more paw-nderous

when it rains…


…cute pups like Guapa don morton salt girl raincoats and remind us that it can't be sunny ALL the time. thankfully, there are always cute things to make us smile when it's wet and icky outside.

it’s a beautiful day in america


...as craig ferguson (almost) says at the beginning of every show. and it IS a gorgeous day outside; unfortunately, i've been either inside or stuck in traffic for most of it. during my drive downtown, i ended up stuck in traffic at several spots; this being DC, many spots end up having cool monuments in…Read more it’s a beautiful day in america

"there's something red in here. what is it?" "it's a slice of red bell pepper, Sprinkles. it's yummy." "but what if it comes alive like a vegetable tentacle…Read more sprinkle the love around

Barooooo! some days i feel like this too,…Read more burrito.

happy fourth of july…


here's Dozer, a little puppy whose tiny little paws are roughly about the size of a quarter. yep, this little guy needs to grow into his wrinkles.  i realize Dozer has essentially nothing to do with the fourth of july, but I seem to have a dearth of photos invoking patriotism. but i figure EVERY day…Read more happy fourth of july…
