I'm a designer and runner currently living in Minneapolis. I like solving problems, connecting people and running/biking around the city.
Music that makes ceilings shake, omelette flipping, websites and designery stuff.
Finishing that thing.
Initiative is a decision, not a skill.
People like Drew Wilson and Chase Jarvis. They ship the work.
DJing around town and dropping mad bass.
The last .2 miles of a marathon. The people, the screaming…it's the best.
How to prepare, cook and ultimately flip an omelette.
