Summer Venture : Southeast Missouri
A lot of planning goes into these trips before we drive off. basically it comes down to gear and food, but how much to bring and what to bring is the planning part. We get the gear and food sorted out at least a day or more before we drive off. Then I am relaxed about leaving and have time to think about the one watch that I will take on this journey.
Photographing San Francisco
I wanted to book more time before and after the Wind-Up Fair to get out with my camera and explore this city that I have spent so little time in. I get a lot of inspiration and motivation for my work and future designs by getting out and living life, doing things and interacting with people outside of the watch world.
Five Day Venture on the Buffalo National River.
Our gear was minimal on the river, just the basics, and in these situations "less is more"... if you don't need it, don't bring it. This philosophy is similar to how I design watches. I often say "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should", or "keep it simple". These excursions give me time to get away from the office and field test a watch.
Photographing Kansas Bison in the Winter Fog
You don't want to get too close to bison as they are large and unpredictable, so I mounted my telephoto lens on the camera. The bison spotted us and decided to come closer to investigate. In no time at all we were surrounded and they were at an uncomfortably close distance.
