Over the past couple years, I’ve traveled to some amazing places, and taken pretty neat photos. So far, they’ve been sitting on my computer, serving only my occasional enjoyment—hardly an appropriate fate.
Instead, I’ve decided to start slowing sharing these on here. Over the next few months, I’ll try to post the brief backlog of good photos taken in and around 2013.
This particular photo was taken in the summer of 2012, on a trip to Switzerland. It’s the Lac de Moiry, a glacier-fueled lake behind a dam.
I went crabbing for the first time today. Caught, cooked, and ate this crab, along with eight others. I highly recommend it, it’s a very rewarding experience, and tons of fun!
This was a project for my packaging design class, this past semester. Starting from scratch, I designed the entire story and identity. Illustration was done by the incredibly talented Brian Mutschler.
Scylla is said to once have been a nymph so beautiful that Poseidon, the great god of the seas, fell madly in love with her. Scylla, not reciprocating the feeling, fled to the dry land, where he could not follow. Angry at her betrayal, Poseidon cursed her and transformed her into a monster, to forever haunt the sea. Eons later, a mercenary of the crusades from Couvet, Switzerland got caught at sea in a terrible storm and wrecked onto Scylla’s reef. Scylla rescued and nurtured him and they fell in love. When another ship finally came to the rescue, Scylla gave him the recipe to an elixir which, when ingested, would instantly bring her image to life in his mind. To this day, his great great grand children distill this very same elixir.

This is the fantastic suit I stayed in on my first trip to Las Vegas.
So I got a lava lamp. Using the following image as a wallpaper right now:
I’ve just moved into a new apartment, and took the opportunity to act upon my love for minimalism in furnishing and designing it.
Working on Graphic Design homework again. This time, we’re supposed to take an object (I was assigned a belt) and a word (I got “social”), and modify the belt to become social. I’m making a belt that has a QR code to the wearer’s Facebook, its URL, and an RFID chip for quick automatic friending.
Another long exposure from last night. The Bay Bridge in all its golden glory.
Went out to shoot some pictures of San Francisco last night. Had lots of fun, froze my fingers, and took some pretty nice shots.
For Graphic Design 2, we created a stationary system for a fictional company. All companies were a combination of two somewhat random adjectives, and mine were Caffeinated Nomad. This is my solution.
Working on some Graphic Design homework…

I recently went on a small trip to San Diego. After completing my summer internship with Tapulous, I decided to take some vacation and go explore some of the other great American cities. So I flew down to the port city for a long weekend.
I visited the USS Midway, an impressive retired aircraft carrier turned museum. San Diego being one of America’s greatest Navy ports, it was host to three massive aircraft carrier when I visited, which you could see from across the bay.
Like any self-respecting tourist in San Diego, I made it to Seaworld.
Seaworld had some great shows. I especially enjoyed the funny sea lion show. They’ve got to be my favorite marine creatures, and they were very impressively trained.

Pretty good for an iPhone pic, wouldn’t you say?
A beautiful snowy sunrise at home in Switzerland.
