This is what an inbox looks like at the end of a successful week


Furthermore, there were only 4 days to get everything done because Monday was Memorial Day.  This is not to say that I have completed all tasks, but rather that everything is accounted for. I’ve been using the new “Inbox by Google” interface for Gmail on the desktop browser, with similar […]

Voice


In my 20’s, I was acutely aware of the need to know my “voice”. As a director fumbling my way through film school, much emphasis was placed on expressing one’s thoughts with both gravitas and artistic merit, as though my self-understanding lay buried in the pages of French New Wave […]

6 Steps To Take Charge Of Your Career. Happy Birthday, Bro!


It’s my little bro’s birthday today. When I say “little”, I mean in age, for at 6’5, I am one inch his little bro. But, with nine years life experience on him, I’m hoping I can offer some insight about stepping out and taking charge of his work life. I […]

Waiting


Under a building titled 1930 Falcon Laundry, of red brick and a graffitied roller door, sits a man in a white long sleeved shirt, charcoal pants and dust-worn boots. He turns a magazine pullout over in half and straightens both his arms to support his weight on his knees with […]

Embrace the Remix


“Creativity comes from without not from within. We are not self-made. We are dependent on one another. Admitting this to ourselves isn’t an embrace of mediocrity or derivativeness. It’s a liberation from our misconceptions; it’s an incentive to not expect so much of ourselves, and to simply, begin.” Kirby Ferguson […]

Californian Chipmunk


In a harsh environment of rock and cacti, this fluffy rodent still finds the food it needs to thrive. It made me think about ways in which we adapt to our surrounds. Particularly if you’re in a concrete city, how have you designed your life to provide space for your […]

Back to New York


Suddenly I’m back. The icons of the New York skyline so familiar through recess of memory and the window of film, now examined through the window of a taxi sailing the BQE. Displaced. I want to find my notepad to write all this down, but my girl is nestled into […]

ANZAC Day 2014


Lest we forget. My parents and I rode our bikes down to the ANZAC Day ceremony at the Australian War Memorial today. My brother was playing saxophone in the military band for the royals who were only 20m away! I love how casual security details are in Canberra.

A brief stopover in Sydney


It’s a beautifully still evening back in Sydney. The view of Sydney Harbour from my balcony in Edgecliff is always changing: sailboats, ferries, oceanliners. Tonight I’m particularly appreciating the cool, crisp air after two months of humidity in Thailand! Travelling always makes for very sharp shift in seasons.

Hacky Sack in Surat Thani


Today I came across the best game of Hacky Sack I’ve ever seen: three netted hoops strung up over the square alongside the river in Surat Thani! (at Surat Koh Samui Pier)

Life’s a beach


In Koh Samui at Palm Point Village… Life’s a beach. As though I hadn’t had enough hammock time on Koh Tao, on Ko Samui I found another beach front hotel and chilled out.

Koh Phangan


Farewell Koh Phangan! I’m departing Haad Rin Pier on the ferry south to Samui. The boat is filled with washed up backpackers, recovering from the full moon party two nights ago.
