Work

(and real ones)

It’s been a long, long, looong year.

It’s been so long, in fact, that somewhere along the way I lost my love of writing. I lost my free time to cheer on my favorite sports teams with colorful shittalk. I lost my passion for waking up early to download political chatter before heading off to work. I feel like I lost some of my personality, honestly.

(But I didn’t, of course, lose my passion for drinking beer; if anything I just drank MORE of it, to lament the loss of all the above…)

The year is nearing it’s final chapter now, and I’m looking for a scapegoat for all this loss. Continue reading

H2

I’ve been doing my best to recharge my batteries for the second half of 2017. It’s been slow-going since coming back from summer shutdown; shockingly, I’ve been finding my usual 5:30 A.M. wake up time to be a wee bit less appealing than it was back in June…

However, the best part about my job is now kicking into high-gear, and starting in August I’ll be off on another crazy adventure that will reach its grand finale at Adobe MAX 2017 in Las Vegas this October.

On Friday, we announced the remaining Semifinalists in this year’s Adobe Design Achievement Awards:

In Style

One week into 2017, and I’m STILL not fully recovered from my holiday plague. Dammit.

That said, it didn’t stop me and my rad team at work from totally CRUSHING the 4th Annual de Youngsters Art Party at San Francisco’s de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park this past Friday night.

Just a little victory lap to end a long day (and project), right through our backdrop.

Chronic Creationism

I gave birth to a special baby this weekend. I named it Adobe Career Bootcamp.

I’ve been working on it for just about exactly nine months now (but honestly, I could have planned its arrival a little better; not gonna lie). Still, I test drove it in-utero while at Adobe MAX earlier this month, and I knew it would be a special addition to the world… Continue reading

1 x 2

One year ago: a fresher on her first day on the job (and the bus).

One year ago: a fresher on her first day on the job (and the bus).

It’s the one year anniversary.

OF EVERYTHING.

One year ago today – August 3, 2015 – I started my new job, as Community Engagement Manager for Adobe’s Digital Media business.

AND

Trent and I closed on our vacation home. Our dream a-frame mountain party house, on the Ebbetts Pass in the Sierra Nevada.

That was a big day. I had a lot going on. But believe it or not, one year later, I have even more going on now.

Like… evening art-making workshops on iPads with child cancer patients and Creative Collisions at The Tech Museum in San Jose and media rollouts for our new Adobe Studio and interview requests from national press and travel orders from my VP and travel orders from my family and my 20 year high school reunion (EEK!) and preparations for Adobe MAX and preparations for Labor Day at the cabin and judging weekend for the ADAA

In short, I feel like this:

LIKE A LIVE ADOBE LIGHT PAINTING AT THE TECH MUSEUM CREATED BY A HIP HOP DANCER DURING A “CREATIVE COLLISION” ON A TUESDAY NIGHT! WAY PAST MY BEDTIME!

A little wild.

But I look amazing, right?
