New Member Profile Feature on the GDC Website

The BC Chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada interviewed me recently after I became a CGD™ certified member. I recently made it a priority to get more involved in this professional organization after being heavily involved in volunteering in my other passion, BMX biking. For over 15 years I’ve been involved in groups like the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition and Vancouver Dirt Jumping Coalition to help get public skateparks and dirt jumps built in the Lower Mainland for all users. It’s time for me to give back to my profession. I started volunteering at GDC events, and have been getting involved with other design related organizations and events, such as the relatively new Creative Pulse group.

What I’ve been up to… June/July 2014

Here’s a little rundown of What I’ve Been Up to in the last few months… Since Instagram and Twitter have pretty much knocked my iPhone Photo Dump series out of commission, I want to bring back some form of a journal… Something I can look back at to see what I was doing and/or working on at that time. I shoot a ton of photos every month and barely any of them see the light of day, so I want to start sharing more of them.

What I’ve been up to… California Trip

We made the trip down to Los Angeles in mid-June for my good friend’s wedding; Jonathan and Wendy were getting hitched and we weren’t going to miss it for the world. We planned a vacation around their wedding; staying in Venice Beach where it would be central to where we’d be going. From Venice, we’d head up the coast through Big Sur and then fly out of San Francisco. A relaxing vacation with lots of beach time, then driving up the coast was exactly what Katie and I needed.

In Venice we stayed just off the famous canals at an apartment we found on Airbnb. It’s a great place, and we’d definitely stay there again. We spent the week lounging on the beach, meeting up with friends, and hitting a few amazing restaurants while we were there.

Colours of Nicaragua

In my last blog post about our honeymoon in Nicaragua, I mentioned that I wanted to put together a post just about the colours of Nicaragua. Everywhere that we went in Nica, no matter how nice or how poor the neighbourhood, the buildings were painted very bright, with mixed colour palettes.

Honeymoon in Nicaragua

A two week trip to Nicaragua over Christmas and New Years is exactly what we were looking for for our honeymoon. Katie knew someone from Whistler who now lives in San Juan del Sur, having built her own house as well as a rental place that’s listed on AirBNB, so we figured why not; when else would we ever do this trip?

Photo: Coal Harbour on a Moody Day

A moody photo I shot of Coal Harbour and downtown Vancouver from Stanley Park one evening in February. I was running around shooting photos for my nephew’s ‘Flat Stanley’ class project, and happened to catch sundown on this moody weather day. Just happened to catch this very blue-cast lighting at the right time, and I […]

iPhone photo dump February 2012

I suppose Instagram is making my iPhoto dumps obsolete… Even on Twitter I pretty much just posted photos anyway (nobody needs to hear my ramblings), so this is kind of a ‘best of’ throughout the month. A foggy evening of snowboarding on Cypress Mountain. Snack Day at work, strawberry & chocolate ganache dusted with chocolate […]
