Tubing with the family.

January 4th, 2013 by

After getting tons and tons of snow we were getting a little cabin fever and decided to all go up to Mount Hood for some tubing. Here’s some photos from that day.

to Prague

I just got back from a quick weekend in Prague with my new roommate Johannes. We had an excellent time exploring sites like Prague Castle and Charles Bridge. I’ve got a bunch of photos from the trip on my flickr, just click on the link below.

My Adventurous Weekend

February 27th, 2011 by

I started off my Saturday by running down to Hauptbanhof to pick up my train ticket to Paris and London for spring break. Since it was the first somewhat spring like day in a long time I took the opportunity to visit the Tierpark Hellabrunn (zoo). It was pretty fun, even before entering the zoo I spotted a legit “organ grinder” lady, who was awesome even without a monkey on her shoulder. I got a picture of her but you’ll have to wait until I get the film developed. Once inside the zoo I spent quite a bit of time just staring at the chimpanzees watching their eerily human like movements. Other than that I saw some good old american bison, european wolves, and little curled up red pandas just to name a few.

The next day, Sunday I woke up early to meet up with a group going cross-country skiing in Bad Tölz. We ended up skiing for roughly 18 km with a break halfway through for lunch at this amazing Bavarian restaurant in a little town just off the trail. We all had amazing meals and I had my first Radler which tasted pretty interesting, a little too sweet for me though.

Sunbathing Snakes

February 28th, 2010 by

The snakes were enjoying the spring rays today.

On the same note my friend Adam McRae and I came up with a name for dad’s snake the other day. We’re calling him Neville which seems to pair with “Benji” the other snake pretty well. It only took about a decade to name two pets but I think the wait was worth it don’t you?

Valentine’s Day up on the mountain

February 14th, 2010 by

I convinced mom and dad to get out of their comfort zones and take a cross country ski class with me on Mount Hood. I’m still shocked that they actually agreed to do it, but in the end we all had a lot of fun. The class was only 2 hours long but we managed to take away quite a bit of knowledge. We even journeyed out by ourselves after finishing our beginner’s class exploring a few different trails.

a bike born again

January 7th, 2010 by

It only took 2 years to make it happen but the bike is finally finished. The process started long ago by taking the whole bike apart and stripping the paint off the frame. And after a failed attempt to paint the frame myself using good old fashioned spray paint I decided to go to the professionals to get it powder coated(the fork silver and frame a creamy white). I then put on the finishing touches such as silver brake lines, and silver colored fenders and rack. With the last and most important ingredient being two beautiful white and gray Ortlieb back roller classics courtesy of mother and father. (Thanks guys!)

Low Definition: a collection of self portraits

November 15th, 2009 by

I had the opportunity to design the poster for a show my painting class is putting on called “LOW DEFINITION”. Our paintings reference the Chuck Close style (abstraction via pixelation).
