April 24, 2018

Last week I had the unforgettable privilege of visiting western Texas for the first time. Not only to catch up with nearly a dozen far-flung friends in the renowned art capital of Marfa, but also to see a ton of underground music at Mexican Summer's Marfa Myths fe...

"How's your new life going?" is the kind and deeply personal question I got from so many caring friends this week. The answer is: GOOD. The real answer is: GOOD, and... 


I sat down this morning to do a little maintenance on the one-pony-show that my new life has become...

I am not a very good drawer. My drawing skills were last methodically tuned up while learning how to draw croquis (fashion figures) in my sophomore year Apparel Design courses, way back when I was still aspiring to move to New York and make my mark on the fashion scene...

It seems appropriate to climb back on the blog horse as this week, I quit my job. For the first time in many years, I left without another waiting in the wings and with no safety net in place. As a 34-year-old with a twelve-year-dusty bachelor's degree in French living...

The Talking Heads have influenced my life in multiple periods: from the cover band Houses In Motion that the coolest guys at my high school formed in the late 90s to the time my best friend screamed at me during an epic bar dance party "I WANT THIS SONG TO PLAY AT MY W...

Sometimes, the best part about living in New York is getting the heck out of town. After an extremely busy few weeks, Kirk and I promised to take a full day off together and make our way out of the five boroughs. I feel endlessly fortunate that that day came on one of...

If you or someone you have known is a human being or has used a human being brain to live on planet earth, you may be interested in the book I'm currently reading. If you are curious about how the unconscious decides much more of our lives than we may recognize, you ma...
