I Want to Be a Designer… Do I Need to Go to College?

Do I have to go to college if I want to be a graphic designer? This is a question that I hear on almost a weekly basis. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t as cut-and-dry as one might think. These days the rules are much different than those that governed the workplace even five or ten years ago. Do…

How to Work From Home Without Going Crazy

How to Work From Home Without Going Crazy

This past year I made the decision to leave Southern California and relocate to Nashville, TN. In doing so I left the 9-to-5 work environment I had known for nearly three years and became a remote worker for the first time.

Social media is not…

Learning is Not One-Size-Fits-All

What kind of learner are you? That’s a question that is rarely asked of a student or employee these days. Most assume that the traditional education model is sufficient for imparting knowledge onto others. The problem with that, however, is that most of us are unique in the way we interpret data.

Revising My Stance on the Apple Watch

Last week I wrote a not-so-nice piece about how Apple had “lost its way” with the release of the Apple Watch Edition. While this was precisely how I felt at the time, now that I’ve had time to reflect, research, and understand why the Apple Watch Edition exists, I’m revising my stance. How I Feel…

The Future of Apple TV is Bright, and I’m Excited

Several news outlets are reporting that Apple is finally ready to enter the TV business. However, the way they’re choosing to enter the market differs greatly from what was previously expected. Many speculated that Apple would actually produce a television, but that no longer seems to be the case. According to the Wall Street Journal…

The Apple Watch Edition Means Apple Has Lost its Way

The Apple Watch Edition Means Apple Has Lost its Way

The Apple Watch is finally upon us, and whether you like it or not, it’s probably going to be another astronomical product for Apple. While I understand the need for Apple to enter the wearable space, and as much as I want them to succeed within it, I simply do not understand the Apple Watch…

My Thoughts on Apple’s “Spring Forward” Event

Today was a big day in the technology world. Apple held a live event in San Francisco and unveiled two new products and announced a huge partnership with HBO. Since I’ve been getting calls, texts, emails, and tweets all day long about this, I thought I’d share my thoughts on the event here on my…
