  • Website Rework

  • My end of 2022

    spent some time offline for the last few months. Or at least much time as you can offline nowadays, kept my head focused on my job. The situation there seemed to be in a state of flux and I wanted to do what I could to salvage it.

  • Updating and cleaning up

    It’s been a while since I really took a good look at this website, and it shows. I’ve been so focused on the current job that a lot of the creative focus I had for this site went by the wayside, along with my creative drive as a whole. I’m right now in the process […]

  • Wasteland Weekend 2018 Photos

    Here are the photos I took at Wasteland Weekend 2018. It took a while for me to get these published- my main computer died last year, and recovering these photos became the hardest part of the recovery process. On top of all that, these photos were meant to be part of my test run with […]

  • The return of this blog

    2019 has been an odd time for me so far. I planned to bring this website back in tandem with projects and content I had been working on, but life has a way to throw such plans sideways (and then some). My previous employer closed suddenly last February as the owner of the nonprofit passed […]

  • Thermal Selfie

    I haven’t written much in a while. Life gets the best of me, and work has been such a giant part of my life that I neglect to write. Or do anything but work related stuff. I hate that. I need to change that. I’m working on some more longform stuff, but before I go, […]

  • In Praise of Fountain

    I’m getting back to screenwriting. It’s mostly short film or small fun sketches I’ve been meaning to do more of, but I’m no longer writing screenplays in any of the traditional applications. When one considers the places you would usually see the screenwriter work in, one would probably name Final Draft, Movie Magic Screenwriter or […]

  • CMS Hunting

    Oh how I love CMS (or for the layman- Content Management Systems) hunting. Back in the day- you only had a few CMS systems to choose from. Early attempts at making a site a few years ago had me going absolutely crazy for the Mambo CMS engine. Soon after, Joomla was my pick for a […]

  • Infamous Photos

    I seriously love the PS4’s ability to snap photos at any time. It’s a godsend to have it capture footage or just a quick screenshot whenever I need to. Here are some of my favorites I’ve taken while playing Infamous: Second Son.

  • dj orta dot com.

    I’ve been holding off on launching my own personal website for a few years now. And when I mean launch, actually launch and use the fricking thing. I had installed WordPress on it a millennia ago, importing everything over from my livejournal upon it. I started double posting things on both livejournal and WordPress at […]
