Marrying My Dream Job [Part II]


Let me be honest, the Adobe Creative Residency is my dream job–I get to continue achieving my goals creating mindful design & quality products. The past month and a half has already been a gnarly flow of slide & grind.

I was flown out to San Francisco, twice (both trips in less than a month), without ever before stepping yoga-toes-in-skater-shoes on California soil. Flying from one coast to the other was a feat in itself, but then I was blown away by the culture, creativity, and color that consumed my vision like day-dreamed eye-candy.

My stars must have aligned in the most flawless way possible as my second visit to the west coast was just the start of some serious extrasensory perception. I was experiencing things I had only dreamed about… forever. No time was wasted as I met with the film crew in locations that were pure perfection–I worked in a studio with beautifully exposed brick walls and rode my longboard down a graffiti-lined alleyway in the sun. Stacy McClure was a make-up god-send who not only shared some girl talk to calm my nerves, but made me feel confident both outside and in. The next day I had a too short but totally rad portrait session with Sarah Deragon, when she told me of “the photo she dreamed about” and it took everything I had not bust out in fan-girl scream, as that was THE photo I have always wanted to embody. Seriously, major universal-energy is going on. Everything happens for a reason, but that is for another blog post not too far out.

This is officially the beginning of a life-changing experience.
The next twelve months are going to be one gnarly adventure.
