Some thoughts on why I travel

June 20, 2013
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.

Run with Abe ( The 5k and Me)

April 15, 2013

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.

Georgia’s Photo Bio Collection

February 25, 2013

Last weekend I had the honor of being apart of Georgia Esporlas‘s Photo Bio collection in Vancouver, BC. This collection is a series of photos that exceed simple head shots and captures the true essence of the individual. This collection focuses of dynamic entrepreneurs. Each entrepreneur takes multiple full and body shots with three or four personal items that are close to them. These items are specific to the individual and are somehow significant to each person. The list of entrepreneurs include Executive Producer of Miss World Canada Andy Chu, Real Estate Investor and Restaurant Owner Desmond Chen, Fashion Designer Jason Matlo and more. Georgia’s collection will no be ready release for a couple weeks but when it’s done I’ll post it, until then enjoy these iPhone photo collage up top.
