Senior Director of Design @MailChimp. In my off hours, I'm an avid photographer of cities, streets, architecture and the people who inhabit them.
Photos of the gigantic (and abandoned) Norfolk Southern building in southwest Atlanta. This building, along with entire blocks of historic buildings in need of attention, were all recently sold to developers who intend to revitalize the area. So much potential here.
“You’re into photography? You should visit Pier 24.” Those were the words from a local in San Francisco, recommending I make an appointment with Pier 24 Photography. Not knowing what to expect, I went, and was astonished by what I saw — an entire gallery displaying huge prints from many of my favorites, including Alec Soth, Lewis Baltz, Robert Adams, Stephen Shore, Henry Wessel, Diane Arbus and more. These crappy iPhone shots aren’t even close to capturing the experience. It felt like my book shelf coming to life in glorious large format. #sanfran#sanfrancisco#largeformat
Dropped by @letterformarchive in San Francisco - a fantastic non-profit built around the preservation and education of typography and the printed arts. For the designers out there, worth a visit!
Stumbled across the “Painted Ladies” while in San Francisco - a row of Victorian homes similar to “Rainbow Row” in Charleston, SC. Can’t even begin to imagine what these are worth. #paintedladies#sanfran#sanfrancisco

Entering the Mission District in San Francisco, home to numerous street murals and “Mexicana” food spots.
One morning while in San Francisco, I woke up around 4. Feeling like I should somehow take advantage of the time, I left my hotel and ventured to Twin Peaks - a phenomenal hillside south-west of downtown with an unobstructed 180 degree view of the city. I sat alone in the dark for a while, watching the streets come to life, and waited for the sun to rise. This photo was taken just before the sun appeared. By this time, a few other people started to roll in to check out the show as well. One of those locals told me how rare it was to see the whole city so clearly without a single patch of fog. I lucked out, apparently! Wonderful experience. #sanfran#sanfrancisco#twinpeaks#twinpeakssummit#sunrise#sunrises#dawn
