This year has been an interesting one...January 19
My niece, Elektra was born. The date is significant because it is Edgar Allan Poe's birthday. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge Poe fan. Two years ago, I created a Poe web site and this year it has become the most popular Poe site on the net -> www.poestories.comFebruary 15
My birthday was uneventful and a little sad. Jen, one of my best friends, moved to Portland, and another girl who claimed to be a friend, discarded our friendship for her new psycho jealous boyfriend.March 30
I had a very successful gallery show in Fort Lauderdale. It was a solo show and I made a time lapse film of the opening night -> youtube.com/watch?v=TpDA8uovTM…May 2
My close friend Amanda, died of a heroin overdose. She had recently moved to San Francisco to pursue a career in web design. She was an amazing artist, photographer, model, and philosopher. I had just talked to her the week before. She said she missed me and wanted me to come visit her. I wish I had. She was 26. Her myspace -> www.myspace.com/girlbeatnickJuly 13
While on my annual road trip from FL to NY, I spent the day with the most amazing person I have ever met. She is a singer songwriter poet dancer photographer gypsy hacker magician. Oh, and she loves Edgar Allan Poe. One day we shall meet again.September 4
Kiewit, one of the biggest construction companies in the world did a Google search for a time lapse photographer in Florida and found my gallery show time lapse from earlier this year. After meeting with them, they hired to me to do a time lapse film of a huge bridge construction project in Miami. It was hugely successful. I'll have it online at some point.November 22
My mom and I brought my dad home after he nearly died from going to the hospital for a voluntary knee surgery. After the operation, he was pumped full of painkillers and put in a room with someone who was very ill. My dad caught pneumonia and had to be moved to ICU. Stay away from hospitals- they kill people. Don't believe me? look it up.
