My Second #SEANOUNS video is of a person named Brandon Foy AKA phnk. Brandon is an individual with a great story and a excellent sound. Check out this video to know how this musical artist works in his Seattle based studio and also about his inspirations.
Sound Coffee and Morsel is a new local eatery and coffee shop located in the University District of Seattle. Even though this “place” has only been around for a few months they’re already known for their delicious big biscuits, fresh ingredients and community atmosphere. For information about them check out their Facebook page or Instagram
Even though I’ve traveled around the world I still love Seattle. I love it so much I want to highlight fun Seattle people, places and things. Each artistic highlight will be displayed in a short minute or so youtube video.
If you would like to nominate a person, place or thing to be highlighted, please let me know before July 19th. If you have questions feel free to ask. Contact me through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on twitter @AntonioCDSmith #SEANOUNS
Some thoughts on why I travel
Saint Augustine is quoted by saying, ” The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” I feel there’s something about going traveling that changes you. When you travel to different places you are exposed to different ideas, concepts and ways doing things that might not be your own. After being exposed you might find this alternative ways of doing things might be better, thus changing your outlook and perspective on life. I believe a lot of cultural acceptance can be obtained by visiting other cultures and understanding why they do what they do.

Vlogger Fair 2013 was fantastic. I had a great time getting introduced to popular vloggers around the U.S. and also being interviewed for S4SC. Check out the video for highlights of this great event.

First I want to say congrats to Run With Abe for raising over $3000 for LLS. As promised I put together a short video of some of the things I saw and did during the Run with Abe 5k. For information on the 5k visit this link Run with Abe 5k. I hope you enjoy it!
First let me start things off by saying, I am not really a runner. I think the most I’ve ever ran in one sitting was something like 2 miles and that was pushing it. Last year was my first time doing the Run with Abe and let me tell you it was a bit more challenging than I thought. Even though the 5k was not super easy for for me, I did realized it’s was less about where you placed and more about the experience. In the end I placed in the middle of the pack and I felt good about donating to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This year I will be registering for The Run With Abe 5k. I’m planning on bringing my camera and documenting my experiences at the race so expect a video soon. I hope to see you there.
