MOAB

A quick trip to the desert for some camping and mountain biking September 2018.

Atlas Project

This is a project i worked on in school...a satellite phone, with nostalgic styling. It was fun to 3D model the outer ring, and then have it 3D printed in stainless steel. The wood inlay was stained using calligraphy ink, and coated with PU. Good times...

New Bike Day!

After selling my full suspension bike, I had the opportunity to re-assess my needs as a cycler. I wanted to ride faster, to look less lame and simplify the machine getting me down the trails. A hardtail seems perfect, and I couldn't be happier. With a box of new parts, this stumper is gonna be the perfect bike.

 

 

Nashvegas

A weekend trip down to Nashville, to see some old friends. It was a good time, a beautiful city, and a real honkey tonk of a town.

Erie Velodrome

Just around the corner, happens to be a really nice Velodrome. Full Olympic grade boardtrack...and its local. 

Chicago

After a week in Wisconsin playing on the lake, we took a train down to Chicago. A walk around lower downtown at night, yielded some interesting shots from the windy city.

Krause micro farms

Rockmont

The Left Hand Brewery Rockmont festival was pretty fun...grafitti competition, bouncy house, beer, bbq, funk & soul. 

Dead Porsches

There happens to be a master mechanic, specializing in Porsche for the last 40 years nearby...and the mechanics finishing up were more than happy to allow us to wander around their salvage yard. We were in flip flops, practically begging for Tetnis. At least we got to check out some rare cars, that were once precision engineered and sophisticated...now completely mangled. 

Skatepark Graffiti

The local skatepark has some very subtle graffiti, that I got a chance to shoot on a saturday morning with no one around.

Coffee & Cars

On the first Saturday of each month, a lot of really nice cars all get parked in front of a coffee shop. It is awesome.

Moab

I got the opportunity to head out to Moab with a client for some product testing, and a photoshoot. This is a bit of what transpired...

Changing Station

Having a baby is actually not as much work as you think...its more a use of common sense, and regular maintenance. Since we're expecting, were gonna have to tinker under the hood of the newbie. That meant that our changing table needed an update, since i built the original on the roof of our apartment building in San Francisco. The key features on this piece of furniture, are a solid surface top (for easy cleanin'), fabric "drawers" for easy reachin' during the oil changes, and a standing height of 36" (since mobility is key, when dealing with newborns).

Tile Work

The local library is a pretty nice place, and they have this incredible mural. Every time I see it Im impressed, but today i decided to get up close. This is the description i found of the installation.

"Mary and Lafayette Miller from their wedding photo in 1862. A composite photo of nine miners, including a tall young miner in a white shirt, Harvey R. Eddy, who was the only miner on the mural living at the time of the dedication. He attended the dedication and was interviewed on a supplemental tape, a copy of which is now in the Carnegie collection."

Autumn is here

This is my favorite time of year...Autumn. It marks the end of a great summer, and gets you anxious for the ski season. The colors are amazing, the evenings are crisp, and pasta gets put on the menu at our house a lot more often. Let it snow.

Working Class Cargo

This was a bike we built while we were in the Bay area. With a postal bike frame, and enough space on the front for several bags of groceries it makes a great utility bike. A front dynamo hub runs the headlight, and an internal hub gets the gearing right.

Sketchy coffee shop

A big part of my process involves sketching out ideas quickly in a moleskin. These are usually teeny, tiny, little baby sketches that I will re-visit in greater depth...if its a good one. Its a nice way to start the day too, since I spend so much time using one of my many apple devices. thanks steve...i think.

Lafayette downtown sculpture

Downtown Lafayette is chock full of street art, with a healthy dose of sculpture. These are just a few of the permanent installations on south public road, and they make me smile every time i ride by them. enjoy.
