• Sunny exploring
    An adventure in progress
    Bouncing on tiptoes
  • Hey it’s your birthday
    You’re a little bit older
    And just as awesome
  • Bright reflections dart
    Across rippling glass panes Looking to warm you
  • Flowers are squeezing
    Peaking their heads through hard ground
    Only to find snow
  • Dancing shadows stretch
    As they awake with the sun
    Soaking in the warmth
  • Bustling people
    each with a different story
    on their way somewhere
  • The birds are deceived
    They chip because it gets warm
    Then they freeze and die
  • The birds are chirping
    Spring is around the corner
    The snow is sighing
  • Before you forget
    Which shoe goes on left or right
    I’m in it with you
  • A wise old owl
    once told me to be patient
    but I wanted lunch
  • Mongoose or mongeese
    This is a confusing name
    who is there to blame?
  • The sun in shining
    Birds can’t wait to start chirping
    Snow confuses them
  • Sometimes it's sunny
    And sometimes it's dark and grey
    Unless I'm with you
  • White sand on bare feet
    Gently massaging your toes
    Waves just out of reach
  • To get lost with you
    Lost in your laugh and smile
    I love being lost
  • Swift wings flutter by
    Sweet nectar and bright colors
    You’re a butterfly
  • Sometimes you don’t see
    What is right in front of you
    It's just a snow bank
  • Dry dirty canvas
    Heavy and unforgiving
    But it smells like home
  • When the dust settles
    A lonely ant will ponder
    and ask where’s the rain?
  • Snowy white crystals
    Glisten and gleam, the sun melts
    Puddling in sighs
  • On Sundays it rains
    So waffles are usually
    The best thing for me.
  • Twelve angry ants stomp
    Only crumbs quiver slightly
    But still the ants stomp.

Happy New Year!

New Year. New website. I’ve had a lot going on recently. I graduated from Mobile Makers Academy in Chicago, IL. What an amazing experience. I learned so much! Since I’ve been back on on the east coast, I’ve been expanding on all the learning I did while in Chicago. I’m also looking for full-time work as an iOS developer. Know of something? Shoot me an email.

I’m using Github Pages for this new site. The look and feel is very similar to my old site, only I’m using Jekyll for my blog platform. It took me a little while to teach myself how to navigate the structure and figure it out but now that I’ve got it down it’s great. Jekyll makes blogging nice and easy. All I have to do is write this post in markdown and save it in my site’s _posts folder. Push to Github and it’s up and running.

For developing the site Jekyll is great as well. To run Jekyll’s built in development server just run the command $ jekyll serve in the directory of your site. The server will run at http://localhost:4000/. This is great for previewing changes before you make them live.

I’m going to use this blog as a place to share projects I’m working on, tips I might have and the occasional haiku.
