Chi-Town Rising Photos

2 01 2016

So I had the awesome opportunity to photograph the inaugural Chi-Town Rising New Year’s Eve event in Chicago. The photos are up on Chicagoist.com Their write up pretty much nails the event on the head. The TV broadcast was great, the actual turnout and hype not as much. My biggest complaint, there was no where to warm up. That is unless you paid the top dollar price, then you had access to a warming tent with tables and a private bar.

Check out the Chicagoist’s write up and my photos!

2015 Chicago Marathon Costumes

14 10 2015

Check out the slideshow of the Best Costumes from the Chicago Marathon on ChicagoMag.comBYW_9093





Things I didn’t expect at the Chicago Marathon:

11 10 2015

1. Having a runner run up and hug me! A friend I haven’t seen in over a year, looking all good at mile 18!

2. Eminem to be “spirit music” on the loud speakers.

3. Over hearing a runner explaining an episode of Friends to another runner, also at mile 18.

4. A guy from Chicago Fire Department running the whole damn thing in full gear, and I mean tank and all.

ComicCon

25 08 2015

My Wizard World ComicCon photos are up and ready for viewing on Chicagoist!

It was my first Con and I loved it. The creativity and craftsmanship of the costumes and the arts for sales were impressive. I did not get a chance to take part in any panels, or attend the costume contest due to my regularly scheduled programming, aka the day job, but I’m still super glad I got to go!





The Growling Rabbit

The Growling Rabbit – A Cafe is a place I love. I worked there for around 3 years and now I still stop in at least once a week. Laura, my former boss and a generally awesome person was featured on The Native Society as a successful small business owner/entrepreneur. She enlisted me for her portrait.

If you want the world’s best cinnamon rolls, stop in on a Saturday or Sunday for brunch. Any other day of the week, check them out for a variety of Bombwiches (giant brunch sandwichs) or killer chorizo omelets, spinach and mushroom crepes, or vegan breakfast burritos. They’re extremely vegan and Gluten Free friendly, but never fear meat eaters, they also  have juicy delicious carnitas and other meaty eats available. Not to mention if you need a customer flavored and frosted birthday cake, they’re also a full bakery. You really can’t go wrong.
