Howdy! I'm Sam, I'm 20, I'm a student and I'm interested in a massive array of things. Mainly things that improve our lives, designs, products, I like things that make me go.."wow that is a really slick idea!" Like everyone else i have hobbies and interests.. i love surfing, music photography and generally impressive things, but remember it doesn't have to do 1000 things to be impressive, and it certainly doesn't have to be man made.
I guess this site is a record of my thoughts, findings and things i face in life that i think i need opinions on, or that other people should really take a look at. Knowledge has a lot of value in this world, i prefer it to money, its harder to loose!
This may be a little off topic but surfing is important to me, and this is such a clean and calm example of pushing the boundaries. If we go back to the mid 60′s and the endless summer, those boys would flip a lid at this move…and they were on a pioneering tour!

A slo – mo video showing an AK47 firing underwater is pretty cool in itself, but the science behind it is even cooler. Destin from ‘smarter every day’ explains to use why an oscillating bubble occurs, how the water is parting even before the bullet reaches it, and why there are two different kinds of bubbles caused here. Thanks Destin!
This eek I have mostly been working on my photoshop rendering skills, taking a sketch, importing it or drawing straight from Photoshop itself. I am starting to get a good feel for how I want to work and how to … Continue reading →
So I haven’t posted on here in over 5 months, and I have no-one to blame but myself! I apologize to everyone but now I am back on the horse and ready to ride.
The reasons for not posting are; I have been extremely busy with an internship that I landed in September 2013, at Skyline Displays in Eagan Minnesota… I have been coaching a youth soccer team which I enjoy thoroughly… I have also been playing in soccer leagues… I have been generally spending my time in this arctic winter reading and adding to my skills armory more as a designer, becoming more self aware and honing in my talents.
I also love to play acoustic guitar, and that finds its way into every day somehow!
