Photography

This was my first real hobby, but it took me a while to put together an online portfolio. I’m mostly interested in travel photography – whether that’s capturing the epic landscapes of the Norwegian fjords or the street scenes of a cobblestoned square in an old Polish town. I now have a page that showcases my favorites, in addition to featuring the photography in my joint travel blog with my wife.

Travel

After starting archetypical.us, I found out that I really liked designing web pages. And what better way to combine my passion for travel (really my #1 hobby) with web design other than a travel blog? My wife actually had the idea to start, and after many iterations we finally decided on JetSetMonaco, where we  now document our adventures together. Currently I’m at 43 U.S. states and 50+ countries.

Architecture

I was always fascinated by the way that a building could make you feel – a Gothic cathedral, an Art Deco skyscraper – but I didn’t do anything meaningful with the interest until I started archetypical.us, a WIP website that allowed me to explore the different styles in more detail. It has since evolved into more of a general visual encyclopedia, but the core was and always will be architecture.
