final tribute for FDOM

A recap of what I was fortunate enough to pick up from this course.

I feel we had so much ground to cover in such a short amount of time. Some of it, unfortunately has already left me. There were a few assignments that I neglected, but overall I learned so much. From self branding and tools to establishing yourself in the world of social media, we really were pushed to dip our toes in nearly every outlet! This upcoming semester I’ll be taking an advanced coding class, which terrifies and excites me all at once. I’m really looking forward to developing my interactive concept skills. After all that is the world we’re a part of.



thoughts and what not.                 my brother was 10 years older than

me. we were pretty great friends.

it took a while… but we were close. 

He would have turned 34 this upcoming December.      

                                                                           I understand that we all have tragedy

riddled into our past, some a little more worn in than others.

I stumbled upon this gem of a tune the other day…

and it stopped me in my tracks. I

took these lyrics to the depths of my cerebrum…and thought about the struggle my dear brother had to face. A struggle so difficult and so grief stricken his solution was to depart. There’s really no point to this post, click play…listen to a good jam. And maybe…ummm call your mother, father …brother or sister today.

New Discoveries

I love discovering all the creative souls out there. We’re so fortunate to be able to have every answer to any question or research the history of any person or thing all within a few seconds…maybe minutes depending on your wifi connection. It’s just so fun to be able to find so much talent and creativity with a few key strokes. I hope you enjoy these lovelies

Whimsical Worlds: Artists to Follow Now.

living on memories

I recently took a trip to see my dad over the 4th of July, it was an eye opening trip to say the least. This is a man who really hasn’t been around to share many big events in my life, so to take a trip to “hang out” is a little foreign for me…unfortunately. His 70th birthday was in June as well…and I just entered my mid 20’s.

I get we all have or family dramas, but there’s no rule book on how to deal with an absent elderly mentally ill father. My dad is the one farthest to the left, whenever we talk he shares all these memories of his friends as if I was there too. It’s so special yet incredibly tragic all at the same time. When I get frustrated with him I think of what it must be like for this man who was once this lively little boy to have quite a difficult life to ponder.


FDOM Summer: Mobile App

I created a horse health tracker. Many times when I’m with my horses I’ve wanted to look at their anatomy, or read/watch a video posted by a veterinarian that could potentially help me diagnose an injury. This is just the start of an app that would be able to do that. Click this: mobile app link to see my little idea. You could add different horses, along with their weight, maintenance schedule, you may even sync your vet reports or farrier service etc.

It would be a little information sheet in your back pocket. After all these animals are pretty expensive hobbies, might as well ensure that you have all resources available to care for them as best as possible.
