Yup, it rains. It was actually pretty cool to run around the few days I was there. Mind you I had to get a better jacket and used a scarf liberally… Read more
With Fly Espresso I’m trying something different. Rather than the ramblings of a kid, the crazy ideas of an online magazine–this is just going to be me. Now a lot of the main topics will include Travel, Cycling, Academics, Business, Design and most of all Photography. There will be essays, travel logs, design taredowns, galleries, links, and just about anything that floats into my mind. I think everyone will like it a lot, nothing like getting inside my head right?
I got the idea for the name Fly Espresso a while back while watching Mad Men (has nothing to do with the show at all though). Even though it stuck, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with it. At the same time a lot of things came up in my life, both medically and personally–a lot of my projects and even who I was got put onto the back burner. Things are different now, and for the better too!
All I ask is to bear with me while I get this going and to keep stopping by, my plan is to have at least put 3 or so things up a week. Also be honest, feedback is welcome and I will undoubtedly post things to have a dialog on them too! Maybe my English will get better to…
Stay tuned, this is Fly Espresso, some of what is coming up is after the break! Read more
Hurtling through the sky at 39,000 feet I’ve encountered some of the most profound moments of my life. I left Japan by jet when I was only 5.5 years old, only to return again 7 years later. I would later leave from SeaTac airport after graduating High school once again heading again to Tokyo—unbeknownst to me I’d later be on the cusp of working in Seattle. When all these moments occurred, I had no idea that they’d linger with me. My life and who I am is a byproduct of my passion for adventure—for the grandeur of flight.
That leaves me with where I am now, a Southwest flight on a brand new Boeing 737-800—heading to my last semester of my collegiate career. I’m listening to some great tunes, many from my time in Tokyo along with the new (Parov Stelar’s Booty Swing, check it out). It has hit me that I’ll be working for Boeing, supporting the company that indirectly made me who I am. I’m finally comfortable with that—it somehow just fits. Read more
It has changed quite a bit since these photos, but the backdrop of Downtown Denver, along with the Rockies is just too cool. The 2011 Fuji Cross 2.0 truly is an amazing bike, I can not complain one bit, I’ve changed a few things since this shoot but I’ll have to go over those at another point. I just really wanted this on here!
