I have come to a point in my life where I am looking for something more. I guess I look at myself and say I want something more, I am tired of being comfortable. I don't want to wake up sick in bed one day regretting not having taken advantage of my potential.
One of the most memorable things I have done, at least to me, was when I made a job hunting stunt and it got written about in a couple ad industry blogs. I actually liked making that project. I have a job and all, not the one I was after, but okay, I am fine and happy in that aspect, I will keep it. But I want to make dent in how we see communications and where I am in my life I can't make that happen. Where I am at, being comfortable is not for me.
I remember seeing Black Adder and laughing at Lord Flashheart, a fictional character, but remember one thing he said, something I tell myself more and more, "if you want something, take it." I have been a pussy for too long. So now I am working on a strategy to become the best damn designer I can be and have fun doing it. Maybe it's not what you think is to be done, but misfits don't listen to sense anyways.
I am going to create a portfolio of interesting things, of sorts, by doing a lot of little projects, some daring, some publicity, some looking for a critical response, some outrageous, some self improvement.
I want to create a popular twitter account, create some viral media, talk to my heroes, upset people and make others surprised. I want to create media I think is awesome. All in a journey to be a better designer. I don't have to do any of this, not at all. I could be content and comfortable and sit at my desk each night and be warm and hope I don't embarrass myself, but honestly, I want to be remembered for more than sitting and dreaming. 
So here I go again. Keep your eyes open, you will be seeing me in blogs and in other news media. I have done it before and will do it again, but this time for me because it's what I like.

United States
I am a professional graphic designer. I work at a newspaper.

Ever since I left college I have had professional duties ranging from photo editing to web site design. Soon I will be adding video editing to that list.
Over the last three years I went through some low points in my life, death of my parents and other things that left my heart in suspense.
I hope to start shooting more and and sharing more and re-visioning some of my old work.
