2009 has been a blur

You know you’re busy when you cannot find a decent chunk of personal time to maintain your blog. It’s a chaotic feeling I welcome and it forces you to be a little bit more organized. What have I been up to…?

• Last Exit recently launched the new Piaggio USA website which I helped work on under the direction of Fred Wheeler and the rest of the LX team.

• A great video portal website which I’ve been heavily designing is in its building stages. I cannot go too in detail just yet but it is sure to be a great launch in the coming months.
• Just this morning, I received an email invitation to participate in the preliminary rounds of the Cut & Paste Digital Design Tournament here in New York City.

• OBAMA is officially our 44th President! 🙂
• Some freelance jobs were starting to pile up on my TO-DO plate. Things, a great task management application for the MAC has been a savior these past couple weeks. But now my trial period is over and I’m contemplating whether to use our dwindling economy as an excuse not to purchase the $50 software.
• We’re starting a new presentation forum next week at work called “LX Lecture Series” which we hope will be a nice platform for further discussion, collaboration and inspiration.
• And finally in the most important news… I tried my first 360 off a jump. I wrecked after only spinning 270 degrees but like anything, will pick myself back up and try again. 🙂

Happy 2009

Just recently came back from an amazing trip to Japan. Great food, great company and overall a great way to end 2008. With a new year comes new resolutions and new goals. I personally have about 10. Whether or not I accomplish them is another story.

My new year’s advice courtesy of a randomly saved RTF file from May 2008:
“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second. Give your dreams all you’ve got and you’ll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you.”

Vague? Yes. Sappy? Of course. Inspirational? Perhaps. Happy new year everyone.
