The Neutral Density (ND) filter was something I’d always heard about but didn’t really understand why I would need one considering software can apply filters in post-processing. It wasn’t until a recent trip to Hawaii which I really put the ND filter to use. I did some research and realized if I wanted those soft […]
what happens when you get 15 people in one house for one week to go snowboarding at Breckenridge? unfortunately, this is not a rant on cramming people into a house, there was no Real World-type drama, but rather an awesome awesome trip with a ton of new friends!
6 years ago, we visited Mont Tremblant in Quebec, CA on a spring break trip made for college kids. it was definitely an experience – we rode the 12+ hours in the Jack Daniels tour bus, the conditions were mostly wet, and we learned quickly that we were easily the oldest ones in the club/bar […]
6 years ago, my two friends and I went on a spring break trip to Mont Tremblant to snowboard for a week. there were a few things we learned really quick about this ski town located 2 hours outside Montreal: (1) ski town food is really expensive and (2) the Canadian drinking age is 18 […]
This is a late post, but still something worth sharing. 4th of July was particularly special this year. I was invited to go to a lake house to celebrate and be with new friends.

I may have revolutionized packing without using a traditional semi-hard wheelie suitcase. mostly because I don’t own a wheelie case (except my snowboard bag), but the situation is I was packing for a wedding and vacation for two weeks in taiwan and my travel bag was my gregory palisade 80. This presented two major problems: […]
I just came across this article where WaPo reports DC is being looked at by NY restaurateurs as a good area to expand, citing the stable economy and cheaper leases. I and definitely a fan of this, as it should make our 2-3 year food trend gap a little shorter as restaurants look to DC […]
