My favorite music of 2014

January 2nd, 2015

This past year has been one of the busiest of my life. We had a daughter turn 3, moved from one house we’d lived in for over 10 years into another one, and I had some of the largest, most complicated work deadlines ever. Having said all that, I somehow managed to listen to more […]

2008 Mix Extravaganza!

December 29th, 2008

In addition to creating the usual mix of songs for the year, I decided to give myself a little design challenge in the process just to see what would come of it. Instead of simply placing the cover art from each respective album into the timeline of my mix, I thought I’d instead try to […]
