I have been meeting with high school seniors to promote the School of Visual Communications. During the last two weekends in January, our entire faculty spent all day Friday and Saturday in individual meetings with high school seniors who have applied to our program. In February I have arranged to visit a high school in Columbus to help students better understand what careers are out there for people who are passionate about design.

Recently OUMS took their annual trip to New York. Our group toured multimedia firms and connected with alumni all over the city. In the evening on Friday was a gathering of as many VisCom alumni and friends as we could possibly find.

In early September, OnSlot Productions called from New York and asked if I would help them with a commercial video shoot that they wanted to do in Athens Ohio. We spent three days filming five different sequences for an "I Heart Radio" commercial for Clear Channel.

Over the summer I traveled to Chicago for The Pitchfork Music Festival. Ikea and ReadyMade Magazine worked together to build a freestanding structure at the festival to feature their talents. I was asked to come and make promotional photographs of the event and the structure which was on display.

David Hostetler calls me to work with him in the creation of his art work from time to time. Recently he and Kate (a friend and model) and I got together to create some prints.

Documentary Story Telling in Europe -- Fredrick Lewis, Brandon Flayler and I spent 6 weeks of the summer working with 16 Ohio Universtiy students in Leipzig, Germany. While we were in Germany we worked in groups on short documentary films.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
