I STILL LOVE SUMMER

The freedom I feel during summer in the Pacific Northwest is undeniable. For the rest of the year, the weather can be downright depressing, but when the sun shines on that green and blue landscape, one can’t help but feel rejuvenated. Digging my new boat and motor!

I LOVE SUMMER

Refelecting on all the amazing things I’ve seen over the past months, this photo probably says it best. Going to car shows and meeting new owners and their cars is a constant source of reveal for me and my work. Here’s an unpublished shot from Luft 6. I’m off to another gathering today that’s sure to inspire me further on my journey.

R GRUPPE 20TH ANNIVERSARY TREFFEN

This weekend I attended the annual gathering of hot rod early 911 Porsches for the 20th time. Wow, did those years go by quick! So glad I could spend them following my passion and hanging out with my buds. I’ll be gathering footage and photos for a look back at this amazing two decade experience soon.

GRAY MAY

May is one of my favorite times to be in California. It’s not for the weather. Grey skies and fog enter the L.A. area for that month and the next, while Seattle’s climate is just starting to get clearer with warmer days. More

OWN IT

When I think of my life and the decisions I’ve made, a lot of it has come down to personal responsibility, doing the best I can in all circumstances and being true to myself.

Living in the moment and following your intuition helps. It keeps you aligned with your real potential by not dwelling on the past or what others might think. More

HAPPY NEW YEAR WISHES!

Hope you had a good 2018. It was tumultuous for sure. But for me, there were also too many highlights to count.

Certainly one must be my Proterra Electric Bus assignment in Seattle. Thanks to Sybil and her team for keeping it fun!

Gotta’ say, I’m really lucky I get to do what I love for a living (especially since I’m not a trust fund kid!).
