A point of view

A New Way

Okay, so things kind of exploded at work this week. My director, Philip, quit this week and it’s had the company a bit on edge on strategy going forward. I’d been contemplating on leaving as well and today it looks like that is coming to fruition.

I wish New Media well in their endeavors and the people I worked with over the past two years are very talented, they should do great things in their new direction, I just need to go in another one.

Crested Butte, Colorado

I’m going to Colorado for a little getaway. I fear my attitude has spread around the workplace and all are standing on the cliffs, some waiting to jump, some waiting to be pushed.

Get busy living or get busy dying. I need to go find my smile.

Palm Springs, CA

Spending the next few days at the LaQuinta Resort in Palm Springs for work. Our client Williams Energy is hosting their annual performance review and I’ll be help running the show and presentation. The most interesting part of this trip was the flight here; Mike and I rode in Williams’ Corporate jet from Oklahoma to Palm Springs.

Australia Bound

After nearly a lifetime of wanting and planning to visit the land down under, Paula and I finally planned our trip to go. It was compacted into Sydney, Cairns, and Uluru, all less than a week total, but it was worth getting a feel of all that Australia is. I’m pretty sure we will be back to visit again in much more detail.

Ackerman McQueen

After running Outland Design for the last several years, I have taken a position as a Web Designer for Ackerman McQueen New Media, the largest Advertising agency in the mid-west with national clients. I’m really looking forward to working with the group of talented designers and developers, some I already know and have worked with.

Happy Birthday Nathan!

Nathan was born today. It was a moment I will never forget. He was small and red and the nurse scrubbed him down hard. I was thrilled to see him alive and healthy. It was the first time I ever cried from being happy.

Welcome to the world, kiddo.

Graphic Arts PrePress Lab

Back from Hawaii and ready to join the job market, which brings me to my newest employment adventure starting this week at Graphic Arts Prepress Lab. Night shift. Yup, I will be the night time output technician doing your film projects at 2am.

Azores Layover

Okay, so, on a stopover back to the United States, we landed our plane on a small portugal island that the US Air Force has a base on called Azores, somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s actually weird that you can look in every direction and see the water.
