At 2:30 today I was the fortunate recipient of a phone call from the nurse at Lowell Elementary in Wheaton, telling me that Max got the bad end of a fight with a pencil. He had stuck a pencil into his ear canal and when he pulled it out it was pretty bloody. My guess […]

It’s so refreshing how honest and simple kids can be. No games, no trying to dress up the message – they just get right to the point.

Pure joy these kids are. They are just so fascinating and entertaining to watch. They are so well brainwashed that they’re excited about peas and cucumbers. Literally, excited! You would think it was a happy meal.

Not to be left out, Sydney had her first dentist appointment this past Saturday with mom (photos by mom) while Dad was running errands with the boys. She passed with flying colors and had no cavities.

I know we’re late to the party on this one. Our kids have not been brushing daily and even though they’re 4 and 6 years old they’ve never had a checkup. We always planned on it but never got around to it. It was always just one more thing out of reach of our schedules. […]

The Langham Hotel – On Site Editing

The Langham Hotel (330 North Wabash Avenue , Chicago, IL) was my home for a 24 hour period recently. I was on-site to edit 36 short videos in about 12 hours time, and to deliver them all by 7am the next morning. While, on paper, it was a pretty easy job – it turned out to […]

Well 2014 is starting with a bang! Just when we thought all 3 kids were out of the woods, Sydney came down with the Chicken Pops (that’s what the kids are calling it and I laugh every time). And she has it way worse than Andrew did. But all things considered she’s handling it pretty […]

Today I’m working with a group of friends (it’s always great working with a crew you know – and this one is the A-Team) on a B-Roll package for Macy’s National Believe Day. It’s always fun coming to the city now and then, even with the traffic getting here.  It’s pretty nice being in the […]
