Hello

I am passionate about many things. Some of which include photography, motorcycles, design and discovering craftsmanship.

Some of the projects I have documented here: Kawasaki KLR 650 Rebuild.

There's some great design thinking and motion in here. I'm not a fan of the click+drag interaction on desktop, but overall it's probably one of the better Material Design™ executions I've seen.

Really nice juxtaposition of the design decisions the Google Maps and Apple Maps teams made.

The videos that Blood Knots are putting out are pretty high quality. This is a short teaser from their upcoming project "Our Two Hands" that was funded with Kickstarter.

I've always been blown away by the opening sequence of Alien. The typography of it is just amazing, and at least for me, sets a lot of the tone for the movie.

If anyone ever asks what the definition of craft is, have them watch this.

In the second installment of the XT500 project, I work on getting the sprockets, chain and tires up to snuff.

There's something about this growing trend of basing custom bikes off of dirt bikes that really clicks for me. But honestly, I wouldn't have expected anything less from the fine folks at Deus.

"If you want a shot at building a successful motorcycle business, I believe you need three traits: Creativity, flexibility and enthusiasm. All three. And although we’re talking about bike building, these traits probably apply to any form of self-employment. (And life in general.)"

Fantastic photography of their builds.

So far, I have done a terrible job documenting this XT500. I have already had it for a few months… Here's the first installment.

"Sites like Facebook and Google Plus have all sorts of features for uploading and sharing photos from all sorts of devices. For us, it’s really easy to share things. Snap a photo on your phone, click share, done. She, on the other hand, still emails me all of her photos."

"Part of being a good designer is having a hatred for inconsistencies, so I take the interface’s unevenness to mean a hurried timeline, rather than an unawareness of the inconsistencies."

"iOS 7 is not perfect; this new design framework will evolve and improve over time, just like iOS’s original aesthetic did. But it’s a conceptual foundation that corrects all of the excesses of the original iOS aesthetic."

Easily preview iOS icon designs on your iPhone or iPad. I'm really happy that someone made this.

Pretty inspirational. It would be absolutely insane to be apart of something like Tumblr from the beginning; seeing it grow into the huge site that it is now.

"We’re all familiar with products that are the result of misguided goals. That’s not innovation; it’s more like innobation:4 unproductive, aimless differentiation for its own sake. Onanistic design. Tail wagging."

Some really amazing and stunning photographs. Seems almost other-worldly yet surprisingly nostalgic.

Intriguing documentary about a secretive—what we would call today—street photographer whose stash of prints and negatives was discovered after her death.
