Today, the buzzer will sound on what has been an unimaginable first step in my career. I can’t thank the Philadelphia 76ers organization enough for letting me tell their story for the past three seasons through social media, photo, video and design. I went places I never thought I’d go and worked with people who became like family.
If you told me two and a half years ago that I would be called upon to take flight with my favorite NBA team and capture every moment, I would have told you, “Never.” Well, it happened. It happened not because of me, but because of the support and trust of the 76ers, my family, and my friends.
I hope you’ve enjoyed their story as much as I’ve enjoyed telling it.
Like infographics? Like sunsets? Here’s an infographic that chronicles 24 hours (GMT) worth of sunsets across every world timezone. I found this little project pretty neat. Here’s a link to the complete post on dailyinfographic.com.
My neighbors are doing a bit of remodeling and in the process are trashing old doors from their home. I’ve been taking the doors off of their hands for my own DIY projects. My latest project turned out pretty sweet and it was cheap.
I simply wanted to create a door-top desk for my own childhood nostalgia reasons and because it’s awesome. Here’s how I did it:
I measured the space I wanted to place my desk. Using a circular saw, I made the appropriate cut across the base of the door. The cut was rough and it wasn’t even all that straight, but for this project beauty is in the eye of the beholder…I think. Let’s be honest, I just wanted to rip through some wood with a saw.
I cleaned up the door with a medium grade sand paper to remove any loose chipped paint or splinters. I also wanted to rough up the existing paint a little further, so in some areas I used a little more muscle.
I swept off the door to remove any excess dust or dirt, then I wiped it down using Murphy’s Oil and warm water.
