Else Bandiversary – Photos

Aug 30th, 2015

This past Friday I took some pictures at Else‘s Bandiversary show, to celebrate a full year with the current lineup. Also got to see Sweetalk, American Zer0s, and Amberstein for the first time. Here are just a few of my best shots. Comparing these to the shots I took last time I was at Fixture, I’m super glad I took that photography class.

A wedding gift for my friend

Aug 16th, 2015

Now that the wedding date has passed, I’m excited to share the gift I made for my best friend’s wedding. Her invite said that they didn’t want gifts, but how best-friendly does that sound?

My Awesome Bike

Jun 5th, 2015

Will you just look at this bike? I bought it five years ago from a guy on Craigslist, and in the past five years, I’ve loved it more than any bike I’ve ever owned. It’s a 1990 Peugeot. I bought it in well-loved condition, with the original parts, but decided to convert it to a single-speed. (Not a fixed gear; I can still coast on…
