Being Yourself is “OK”Cupid

How do you get the exposure to an online dating profile in a sea of hundreds of thousands without sacrificing integrity and a sense of self? When my dad met his wife via online dating there was a much smaller pool of people who knew what online dating was. Now it is normal for a profile to start with “My friend made me make this profile” Or “I figured, since so many of my friends use this,  I woul...

Why the poor vote for the rich

If you ever wondered why the poor will vote for the rich. JuanPa on twitter summed it up perfectly. Poverty is “shameful”. Capitalism and America promise you “One day you will be rich, this is temporary.” Your cubicle is not a set back but a right of passage! Your debt is not a burden but a badge of honor! Your struggles are not forever, if you just work within the system! ...

As a creator, how do you overcome “What if?”

Recently I was interviewed about being a director by the Superr app team where they asked me about my work. I told them this: I love how the Superr team captured my crazy while making it seem super artistic! The hardest part about being a photographer is not necessarily the photography itself, but more the freelance aspect of it. When you have nothing to do, being able to just go “breathR...

FINALLY, I have a Generation: Xennials!

Between Generation X and Millennials exists a tiny micro-generation of people who call themselves the Xennials. Maybe you’ve seen this group labeled Generation Catalano — a reference to ’90s teen drama My So-Called Life — or perhaps as the Oregon Trail Generation, but neither have quite the ring that Xennial does. The term was originally coined by Sarah Stankorb for Good in a 2014 feat...

Asexual: the invisible identity

In recent years, discussions around LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) issues have expanded. Media coverage primarily revolves around the homosexual (L and G) population. However, the acronym can be expanded to include queer, intersex, and asexual individuals (LGBTQIA), who see even less representation in the media. So let’s talk about asexuals! WTF does asexual mean? About 1% of...

Why can’t all Emojis be created EQUAL?!

Why the hell can’t I be confident in my emoji being represented the way I see it on my device when sent to a different device?! Imagine if a heart emoji sent from one person’s device showed up on the recipient’s app as a pile of poo. It’d be social suicide(first world problems). That doesn’t happen because emoji are standardized by Unicode to prevent such cross-platfo...

Better than a Fidget Spinner and WAY CUTER!

I don’t know about you but fidget spinners made me more anxious than not. Having to hold it steady so it keeps spinning not actually interacting with it just holding it steady with that high pitch squealing noise! Well I think I found the ultimate toy for people like me who chew the pen caps off pens to the point where I am pretty sure my insides are tattooed. I present to you THE SQUISHY MO...

Blub Blub

Goldfish are evil… You win them at carnivals, not by choice but because the 2 year old standing next to you is give you the poor defenseless eyes of I REALLY REALLY want a fish look, I will care for it and love it and feed it and love you for getting it for them… WRONG, NOPE, DEFINITELY NOT IT! Soooo you win the fish… Now it starts… You carry this dumb plastic bag around th...

It’s Just A Game…

In the early 90’s games were “just a game”.​ Anyone remember this: Or This: The games you could sink hours into on a long car ride or session sitting on a friends couch. Even though we seem to buck at the idea of repetitive actions in games these days, that was the same reason it kept us all entertain for hours on end. At the end of our play sessions we were no more or less engaged, but we will al...

THE “GAY”MER

Before World of Warcraft made gaming a worldwide cultural phenomenon and changed the way most people viewed gamers, i.e. not just something the “reclusive” and people without “social lives” participated in, I used to get a lot of slack from others for gaming.If I wanted to stay home and play a video game my friends would look at me cross eyed. Thus I even shunned myself from gaming and would go ou...

My First Spartan Race – The stuff you CAN’T Google

After my first Spartan Race in Mountain Creek Vernon NJ, “The Beast” I just had to tell people about my experience, from the search for the right attire to the experience I never could have predicted in a million years. When you finally shower and lay down in your warm bed you have a tiny moment of euphoria rush over you as you recall back to the hours before where you were fighting hy...
