Alter Ego: Power up

It's always the same story. Something dramatic is taking place and there's someone or something in need of saving. Suddenly the hero appears after a wardrobe change or undertaking a transformation of some sort. Justice League But why? Why the alter ego? Why not just perform whatever task necessary without transformation? Obviously many of the [...]

Step Back: Leap Forward

I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend and fellow creator, Paige Ellis. Not long ago she left a position for another job. This gave her the flexibility to pursue her passion even further than she already was. She's a talented singer, performer and model that's making moves to position herself for success. Criticism: [...]

Being Creative: The reality is…

This blog will be focused on the truths of being labeled a creative. Being categorized in this group has it's benefits, but it also has its share of difficulties. Like when I was in bootcamp and "commissioned" to paint a mural for my platoon towards the end of training. This allowed for a short reprieve [...]

Ego: Becoming self aware

Everyone has an ego and some are more positive than others. Yet, having an ego isn't necessarily a bad thing. I could drop a Freudian bombshell and start talking about Id, Superego and Ego, but I'm not a psychologist. Neither am I a psychoanalyst or a professional behavioral detection specialist. I just happen to be [...]

A World Unplugged: At odds with creativity?

I’ve recently started a short adventure that will last roughly two months. I jumped out of the sates and have landed in Thailand prior to an adventure through India. Something that has become an issue recently is the wifi in my building. It should be fixed in the next day or two, but it’s brought [...]

Creative in Combat: Lessons from a war zone

First I want to say in no way am I intending to justify conflict or support any specific political agendas. This blog is solely intended to share an experience that shaped me as a videographer and aspiring photographer. All of the photos in this blog are those I captured in 2005 during my first deployment [...]

Over Thinking: All The Things

In business as in life I have to remind myself frequently not to over think it. There are many opportunities that will present themself in either of these categories. We can choose to over think every detail or just go with the flow and learn a bit as we do. Many times I find that [...]

Starting Over: Paint Your Reality

A blank canvas is a beautiful thing. There is unlimited possibilities to create and develop the canvas. Nothing is limiting your creation except what’s inside your own mind, aside from supplies. More on this later. However, if we were all given a blank canvas and the basic supplies to develop the canvas, we’d all have [...]

Confidence To Fail

I use to think failure was a bad thing, not anymore. I've begun to strive for failure and enjoy the feeling it gives me. It's similar to the feeling you get after you get into the gym and start your workout. Suddenly you'll go from feeling ok to being really motivated and wanting to crush [...]

Tasty Dangerous ™ is all about adventure, but not necessarily in the traditional sense that could commonly be attributed to travel.
