Beeing Cool (no more puns promise)

So for the three people that have read some of the other posts, you might remember the post about me beekeeping in NYC.  Through that meeting of a beekeeper, I hooked up with a guy here in DC.  Besides a beekeeper, Pete is also a veteran who is starting a non-profit called Fields for Valor […]

One Time Beekeeping in NYC

So there was the one time I found myself standing in the sculpture garden holding beekeeping equipment at the Museum Of Modern Art in New York City.  First things first, you need to say MOMA because that’s how most people refer to it and it makes you sound extra cool.  Side note, The Metropolitan Museum […]

Nashville In a Day

I was asked if I could take some headshots in Nashville, so I thought I’d take my assistant/faux daughter for the day to see what we could come across.  I started with trusty Facebook to ask friends what they recommend.  Fifteen responses and all related to food.  I even made another request for non-food-related items.  […]
