Bend, Oregon Bliss

Breathing in the pine air, I lay on my back floating lazily down the Deschutes River on my paddle-board, any crisis worth losing sleep over, forgotten. The world went mute as I watched the birds fly across the sky, and the clouds morph into imaginary animals across the sky. At this moment, I realized the best medicine lies beneath our feet and stretches endlessly before us, and today, I found the key.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a force of nature that followed her beliefs until her dying breathe. She was a class act that pursued opportunities when there were none. She's not immune to hardships: her sister died when she was young, and her mother died of cancer while she was in high school. She put herself [...]

Here are some examples of her past work - it's quite exquisite. She's also making [...]

Adventure Awaits

Y’all - we’re going on a road trip. We’re packing up our lives in NY as we know them, placing it in storage and heading into the great unknown. We decided last weekend after riding our electric scooters around lower Manhattan and surveyed the future of NY. She’s a great city, and she’ll be great [...]
