The City 🍎

We recently took a trip back to New York City, mainly to watch World Cup matches in country-friendly locations. In between games, we did nearly 40 miles of walking through the streets and parks of New York, along with the occasional subway and taxi ride.

I used the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal and DJI Spark drone to film the majority of this footage.

 
 

Golf ⛳️

After a trip back from the east coast, I grabbed the DJI Spark drone and DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal then headed out to a local golf course.

 
 

Come Ride With Me 🚲

Most days, I walk to work. There are days that riding seems to fit the mood.

This is short film 6 of 10 I'm filming in 10 days, shooting, editing and posting once per day over the 10 days. (I missed a few days.)

Meeting FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai stopped by our offices this past week. It was a terrific opportunity to learn about new policies and regulations, and to provide updates on some of our key corporate initiatives (in telecom and beyond).

A few things that still stick with me:

  • The man himself was incredibly nice, genuine, curious, welcoming.
  • Planning for a government official visit was a lot of fun (and a wee bit stressful).
  • The amount of hatred he endures is incredible; His Twitter feed (and ours, by association) was riddled with ludicrous and ugly comments.
  • His staff are incredibly gracious and supportive.

Politics aside (is that even possible anymore?), it was a terrific opportunity to meet Chairman Pai and his team.

Trains 🚂

We hear and see trains all day and all night.

Gin and a Record Player 🍸

We picked up a bottle of Whyte Lady gin from a local distillery and paired it with a Dean Martin record.

A nice way to cap off an evening.

Ⅲ Trefoil

I remember two pairs of sneakers of mine that weren't Adidas:

  1. Nike: In high school, my friend Jeff Thompson and I painted all kinds of silly words onto a pair of Nike soccer cleats. The words were in neon green, yellow and pink. I didn't have those shoes for long.
  2. Diadora: These were indoor soccer shoes, and boy were they comfy. They were a navy blue color with gold writing. My friend Mike told me I couldn't get the same pair again - they'd never live up to the first pair.

Other than those two pairs, the only sneakers I've worn are Adidas. I own 7 pairs currently.
