Drink City consists of interviews and portraits of folks in DC involved with drinking in DC. Seems self-explanatory, right? Good.
I’ve started writing for DC Focused, a mostly photography-oriented site that also covers random goings on in Washington, D.C. My first piece is about an interesting and semiannual phenomenon in D.C.: D.C. Henge. It’s like Stonehenge, with its purposeful solar alignment, but instead it happens with modern building aligned on a N/S/E/W grid.
Uxmal, the ancient Maya city, is one of the most important archaeological Maya sites. I had the fortune to visit it in December 2014. This is the main temple.
I managed to sneak away for a long weekend in Delaware. Here are some photos I took, including an incredibly rare selfie (or two).
Shenandoah National Park and the Shenandoah Valley are beautiful any time of year. These pictures are from a quick weekend trip in November 2014.
There is an expensive school a few blocks from my house that has beautiful landscaping. It sits next to a nature conservancy in the city.
Resolution: take more photos in 2015.
I’m doing a photo project involving night photography of people in otherwise empty places. A DC photo site has been kind enough to repost my Craigslist ad! Check it out: http://www.dcfocused.com/2014/11/07/volunteers-needed-for-mount-pleasant-photo-project/
If you’re in DC, come out Monday night and join in. After, meet me at the Raven and I’ll buy you a beer if you tell me “beauclaus.”

PS – is anyone else having issues getting links to work?
Over the past few years, I have cut back significantly on the number of concerts I play. I’ve also added a couple of obstacles to ensure that my performances remain interesting and challenging to me. One is that I use a different setup at each show. The other, which is much less sustainable, is that I’ve used a new homemade synthesizer for each show. After this year, I’ll retire both concepts.
Until then, however, I have two solo shows coming up. The first is the Baltimore Electronic Music Fall Fest at the Electric Maid in Takoma, DC on October 25. The second is an all-day show at the National Electronics Museum in Linthicum, Maryland on November 8. More details, and flyers, to come.
I visited the Montgomery County Fair this past weekend in Gaithersburg, Maryland. It was great for quasi-street photography.
