Open Access – Nairobi

Here’s the latest video I edited for EIFL on Open Access from a student’s POV. Remember to watch in HD – you know, 2015 and all.

“Students and faculty at the University of Nairobi discuss how open access is transforming how they access and share knowledge at their institution.”

Co-Working With Nature

Co-Working With Nature

I’m really growing (pun intended) into our garden – front and back. My herb garden is thriving and being used. The veggies are slowly growing out of their planter size. The peonies, roses, wild flowers, jasmine bush, raspberry bush. The endless floral arrangements I can forage are so beautiful. What a gift from Mother Nature.

A Moment

A Moment

“I’m so sick of having this view”, said no one ever. This was yesterday’s sunset, being more distracting than the internet. I told Mother Nature to bug off, but the sunset morphed through many ombre colours.

Broadway & 112

112 & Broadway

This was my first Fall in New York City, in 2011. I lived a block away and walked passed this beautiful cathedral every day. When I lived in Gramercy the year after, I didn’t take as many photos, but I walked by Gramercy Park every single day and the Empire State’s colour of the day was the light that reminded me where I lived.

36 Hours in San Francisco

Dear lurkers, readers and digital trespassers: A few days after I flew back to Toronto, I was asked by Inspired Citizen to work on/film a project in SF. I had never been to SF as an adult so I was thrilled. We have now finished editing the profiles for Harmless Harvest and PAWS (Performing Animal Welfare Society) and am so excited for their launch.

Here are some photos from the inspiring and exhilarating whirlwind 36 hour trip. (YES IT’S TRUE — red eye ftw.)

Our beautiful Bay view.

Wise, Funny, Grumpy

“He was wise, funny, and grumpy, all the necessary character traits of great journalists.”

Read a great obit for fellow Columbia journalism school alumni David Morrison.

It’s a long read, but if you’re a fan of Hunter S. Thompson, you’ll marvel at Morrison’s life stories.

And the way he writes.

Boy was he good at it.
