I love playing experimenting with gear and tools.

Video & Photo

Panasonic HMC 150: for run-and-gun shoots and event videography.
Azden condenser shotgun mic

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens

IFTTT: automation is a beautiful thing.

Art & Etc

Sakura Pigma Micron pens. For now, I just use these for writing. Someday soon, they will also be for drawing…

Midori Traveler. This year I’m testing the weekly planner insert in lieu of my usual Moleskine. I am an absolute sucker for quality notebooks — seriously. A beautiful notebook is my catnip — the Midori is customizable and leather. 😍

Graph Paper Pad. My brain frequently feels too full and cluttered to process or problem solve on a computer. In those instances, I turn to the trusty pad o’ paper. Where lined paper makes me want to write in tidy lines, graph paper allows me to freestyle while still retaining some structure. Mind-maps, lists, long-hand essays, doodles or combinations thereof.
