Mar 29 | Céad míle fáilte

Funny, isn’t it, that there are certain places that make you feel more compelled to write than others. I just realized the only other time I’ve blogged away from home recently was again in Ireland. It’s sad, really, how little I’ve written in the past few months. Work has somewhat taken over my life. And […]

Aug 18 | A Letter to Ireland

As I wait for my Ryanair flight to roll out of Dublin’s airport, I have many reasons to want to come back. While the first two days of my time in Dublin were spent working deep within the walls of Google’s Dublin offices, I made sure to give myself ample time on the weekend to […]

Sep 1 | Magic Pudding

With my summer internship over I now have a bit of time to put towards writing and sharing some of my summer. Stay tuned for more frequent updates! 魔法のプリン- Magic pudding.

Aug 12 | The perfect Canon upgrade kit

File this under First World Problems, if you will: not being able to take a photo of your camera and kit because you don’t have another camera! As any fledgling camera addict would probably know, there comes a point in the whole camera-owning business where buying a couple of lens becomes a fun (and possibly […]

Oct 11 | Summer reflections

As it so happens it takes about a month for me to have the time to shift gears between one thing and the next, and as such it’s high time for me to put down to pixel the kinds of amazing adventures I’ve been able to have this past summer. I started my internship at […]

Aug 27 | 65 miles of Napa Valley

Sometimes it takes a couple of bubble teas and a week’s worth of rest to be able to muse over a weekend of pure awesomeness. Back in early August I decided on a whim to participate in the Eagle Cycling Club’s Tour of Napa Valley as a group of IDEOers would be headed to it […]
