Workout Book

Ξ November 9th, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Life |

For the last few years I’ve had a pretty active lifestyle. I usually workout at the gym 3-4 times per week for about 45-60 minutes per session. I don’t do any weights—just cardiovascular exercise. I know I should do more strength training, but the gym is usually packed and busy, and by the time I’ve done my cardio I just want to get out of there. I do love hiking as well, and when I get the chance I like to go out on the weekends for a good 2-3 hour hike. The last 2 months I haven’t been to the gym once. My life has pretty much consisted of working on my book, which I finished last night! So now that I don’t have to spend every waking hour working on my book, I’ll be able to start working out again.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I was approached at work to model for an upcoming workout book. The author—Sean Foy—is an absolutely fantastic person. He’s one of the nicest, friendliest people I’ve met. I don’t really like being in front of the camera, but for him, I agreed to do it. I got to get a whole bunch of new workout clothes for the shoot, but at the back of my mind the whole time I felt somewhat guilty just because I hadn’t been to the gym in a while and also because I don’t do any weight training.

James Maciariello was our photographer for the shoot, and Brian Tong art directed it. We took shots of pretty much every exercise Sean details in his book. The shoot was about 2 hours long, and afterwards I was pooped! I only did about 2-3 reps of each exercise, yet even that kicked my butt. I’ve been thinking of getting back into yoga. Ashtanga is not only a great workout, but it really strengthens and tones your muscles. Since I hate lifting weights, this might be a great alternative.

I got a comp of Sean’s new book a couple of days ago. I believe it comes out next summer. I look so pissed off! James kept telling me to smile, and I totally thought I was. I think I just hate being in front of cameras.

My Typographic Wish List

Ξ October 28th, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Life, Graphic Design, Fontography |

I am in love with typography. I want to surround myself with beautiful fonts and typographic ornament. I thought I’d keep a list of all the items I want to (eventually) own and conferences I’d like to attend.

It’s Time for Fall

Ξ October 23rd, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Life, photography |

I think Fall is my most favorite time of year. The air gets crisper, leaves turn beautiful shades of orange and red, and there are lots of fun events to look forward to. I love taking photographs during this season just because I’m so captivated with all of the colors and people. I’ve posted some of my Fall photographs from the past, as well as a link to my online photography portfolio (just a Flickr set for right now). Enjoy!

Maverick

Personally I’m leaning towards definition 1, but 3 might fit for which ever country McCain picks a fight with if he wins.

–noun 1. Southwestern U.S. an unbranded calf, cow, or steer, esp. an unbranded calf that is separated from its mother.
2. a lone dissenter, as an intellectual, an artist, or a politician, who takes an independent stand apart from his or her associates.
3. (initial capital letter) an electro-optically guided U.S. air-to-ground tactical missile for destroying tanks and other hardened targets at ranges up to 15 mi. (24 km).
