A selection of articles written for various internet publications ranging from fighting robots to modern architecture.


Easy Render

Easy Render is a freelance job hunting service that connects 3D rendering artists with architects, engineers, and real estate marketing teams. I’ve written more than 30 blog posts for the company describing the fascinating ins and outs of the digital arts.

“She studies light, shadow, form and shape. She understands colour and adjacencies and depth of field. She knows how people occupy space – how they move through it and perceive it. Behind every high-resolution 3D image is years of education. Not only of the powerful 3D rendering software and tools required to construct such masterpieces, but of the human condition and what is desirable and what is not. The 3D Artist has mastered composition and perspective, framing and angle. She studies her subjects with a watchful eye in order to replicate what we see on a screen to what we see on a sunny summer day on the Champs-Elysées.”

Best Web Firms

Easy Render is a freelance job hunting service that connects 3D rendering artists with architects, engineers, and real estate marketing teams. I’ve written more than 30 blog posts for the company describing the fascinating ins and outs of the digital arts.

“When Sklar Furnishings realized their website needed the modern facelift their products and services deserved, they turned to Evoke Solutions to overhaul their 10 year old site to bring it firmly into the modern era of web design. For the most part, they’ve succeeded in providing Sklar with a clean, minimalist interface that effectively mirrors the image and personality of the company. If there’s anything to complain about, it’s a missing layer or two of polish that could have taken the redesign to the next level.”

BusyBoo

BusyBoo is a popular modern architecture and industrial design blog. For over a year I’ve been contributing 5-10 articles a month focused on contemporary homes, offices, and mixed use architecture.

“The Newberg residence skips softly over a serene pond in the middle of a quiet forest in Oregon. It’s connection to nature isn’t simply visual – it’s deeply rooted in the conceptual force that allowed Cutler Anderson Architects to bring this vision to life. The client wanted his home to reflect the emotional connection he’s always had to the living world. The home’s modest stature, in all it’s spindly glory, reinforces this symbiosis while standing on its own as a remarkable achievement in residential architecture.”

Third Law Sports

Third Law Sports is a blog that covers alternative sporting events including robot fighting, drone racing, and general remote-controlled mayhem and competition. I came on as a freelance contributor last year as I wrote episode review for the past two seasons of ABC’s hit robot fighting show, BattleBots.

“And with that toss of the profanity laced gauntlet from Son of Whyachi driver, Terry Ewert, Episode 2 of BattleBots is officially underway! With an extremely high bar set by the opening episode last week, episode 2 felt a bit like the leftovers peeled off the editing room floor and pasted together in a collage of rivalries, would-be interesting match ups and bizarro-world intro sequences (looking at you, Mobius).”

The Self-Aware Man

I started The Self-Aware Man in 2015 as a way to share my personal growth with whoever might listen. I wrote and wrote and then wrote some more about the kind of person I was striving to be. While I don’t contribute to the blog much anymore, it was instrumental in shaping my preceding life and career transformations.

“We weren’t in Mexico, but we might as well have been. If you squint your eyes and tilt your head southern Arizona auspiciously resembles the Hollywood-painted vista of weathered cantinas and drunk drifters in sombreros and horse blankets. On the day of Mexican independence it gave every irresponsible college kid in Tucson a reason to skip class, gather in droves and find the nearest pool to desecrate and dilute with seventeen different kinds of salsa.”

Miscellaneous

A collection of various articles sprinkled throughout the world wide web.

“Open since 2006, the OSP displays a progressive take on public gathering spaces. It creates decidedly unique processions depending on how you are moving through it. Whether by vehicle, bicycle or foot, the experience changes with distinct and deliberate glimpses of the parks offerings, all in an attempt to draw you into the fairy tale. Works such as the aforementioned Calder masterpiece, along with Claes Oldenberg’s Typewriter Eraser, Scale X provide car commuters with a tantalizing taste that screams, “park your car and explore!” And explore you shall.”
