Love is a Song
There’s nothing more beautiful than the blend of mathematics, emotions, melodies, harmonies, and instruments (vocal and otherwise) that is the gift of song. I do not share in that gift. Both of my parents studied music in college, sing and play instruments. I did not inherit this gift, but I appreciate its imperceptible ability to sway the human spirit.Continue reading “Love is a Song”
Throwback Thursdays are that time of the week where I look back at something – either from long ago or last week – to gain perspective. 2006-2019 I have worked at CityChurch for nearly 13 years. I have shot and edited video, designed graphics, drawn pictures, led teams, balanced budgets, written copy, and a handful of other things that I never imagined doing when I … Continue reading Appreciate the Ride
Welcome to Wednesday Wisdom, where I try to get us over the hump with a huge kaboom idea to motivate you to make the rest of the week the best it can be. Continue reading We’re all Scared (Wednesday Wisdom)
Change is weird and not at all comfortable, and, therefore, not what I’m about. But there are times in our lives where we do have to face changes head-on. I think I am at one of those times now.Continue reading “Changes”

I like to measure my life in projects. There was that time I worked on a zombie board game with my friend Andrew. There was the season of time where we were developing a Neo-noir tv serial based on a pulp fiction character we made up named Jack Sterling. I probably should’ve measured this time in terms most people would understand, like my sophomore and junior year of college.
I didn’t use those terms because I hated school at the time. I now realize I didn’t hate school; I just hated that school. But that’s not really what this post is about.Continue reading “Life Measured in Projects”
This is my 2019. Hold onto your butts.
I’m going to write out my 2019 as if I’ve already done all this crazy stuff. Join with me and think about your 2019.
Rob started 2019 by not giving a crap, and taking as many open 3’s as he could get. He said yes to projects and made bad ass art. He decided he was going to read like 40 books because that’s what you do when you are magnificent.Continue reading “A 2019 List”
