Just over 4 weeks ago I decided to deactivate my Facebook account. I’ve had an account since freshman year of college (5+ years ago) and this was the first time I ever deactivated it. I used to be an avid user of Facebook. In fact, up until about 12 months ago, I would spend probably […]

Ben Birk Photography Site Launched
For the past few months I’ve been casually working on a new website for my friend, Ben Birk. He is a snowboard photographer who I met a couple years ago during my involvement in the Pennsylvania ski/snowboard scene. He spent this past winter in Lake Tahoe, snowboarding and shooting photos every day. Ahhh, the life! […]

Why Do Baseball Players…
I’ve been spending a lot of time during the past two weeks watching baseball. This is pretty unusual for me since I’m not typically a baseball fan. There’s just something about the playoffs that gets my attention. Since I’m not a huge fan, there are still a lot of things about the sport that are […]

Pontiac G6 or similar…
I’d say that I’m fairly new to this whole rental car thing. I rented my first car back in January when I was in Salt Lake City for a ski trip. We were able to upgrade our car to an amazing Infinity G37x sedan. Epic car. The 2nd car I rented was back in May […]

When It Rains, It Pours… Into My Sunroof
Last night it started raining around 9pm in Raleigh. It was a hot day and thunderstorms were forecasted for the evening hours. Caitlin and I had just returned to our apartment from a massive trip to Walmart a few hours earlier. This was before it started to look stormy. We had dinner and I began […]

Dirt Jumping @ Lake Crabtree
This afternoon a few of my friends and I headed out to Lake Crabtree for some biking after work. We generally go biking 4-5 times a week and Crabtree is one of the most popular spots since it’s so close to work and my apartment. The park has a fun line of dirt jumps that […]

Why I Hate CitiBank
Let me start by saying that I consider myself a very responsible credit card user. I never spend more than I have and I always pay off my card in full each month. (Thanks for the good advice, Dad!) So, my current issues with CitiBank aren’t related to increasing interest rates, or other issues like […]

Red Bull Rampage 2008
After talking with @nevko about his recent trip to Moab, UT and doing some serious mountain biking lately, I decided to spend some time browsing the interwebs for exciting things. The other day I came across this incredible video that blew my mind. I suspect that even if you aren’t into biking, you can appreciate […]

My New Bike!
So as many of you know (or will soon find out), I’m pretty obsessed with mountain biking. It all began when I moved down to Raleigh, NC a couple years ago for my first co-op. I’ve been getting more and more into it and now I’m borderline obsessed! It’s so much fun and such a […]

Camera Dump 1
I’ve been taking a bunch of random pictures lately with my Canon Rebel XTi but nothing has been interesting enough to warrant it’s own gallery or blog post. Generally the photos are unrelated to each other and just cool (or depressing) moments that were worth a picture. Last night I got the idea to do […]
