- Killing Caves 1 of 2: So for the past month and a half I've been traveling through rural villages all throughout Cambodia learning the culture and history while doing work. Today I find myself at the killing caves in Battambang. In the 1970s the Khmer Rouge would line people up at that hole where the light shines through and club them until they were dead or unconscious. Then their bodies would take a thirty plus foot drop to finish the job if they were still alive. As I stand here taking this photo there is a heaviness I cannot explain.

- New year, new start right? The year is ending & those are the types of posts I see all over my social media. If 2016 didn't go how you planned and you want next year to be different then you just gotta GO for it. Nothing changes if you don't change anything. If you want 2017 to be your year you can't sit on the couch and wait for it, you gotta go out! Know what you want and take a risk! Make a change, love more, stare fear in the face and do new things. Throw away unhealthy things you've been holding onto, unfollow negative people on social media. Be grateful for what you already have and strive for more. Don't be an asshole and surround yourself with people that dream big (they'll be the ones that'll challenge you to go for more than you think you can handle, and hell, you know that's what you need.) And don't be afraid to stir up a little trouble, the ones that think differently are the ones that change the world. Easier said than done but who really cares, nothing good comes easy, I'm speaking to myself too. Much love. #typography #lettering

- About a year and a half ago, I got offered a position as a lead designer for one of my favorite brands. They offered to move me back home to California (except in Anaheim instead of L.A.) and pay for a year of housing to get me settled. When I got this call, I was totally blown away, a random dude with no degree receiving an opportunity to live out his dream and to be financially set for a good while. That had to be from God right? I was stoked because I felt like this was God's way of saying "hey dude, you've done a good job, here's your reward!" So I started celebrating, I called up the fam and told them about how I'm moving back to California, but as I did that I got this uneasiness. As I prayed for it to leave, I heard God tell me that I wasn't supposed to go and that I was to honor what He has asked me to do with the whole missions thing. And that really messed me up, I wrestled a lot with it (and I still do sometimes) and I tried negotiating with myself using the "God would love me despite the disobedience, so why does it matter?" line. Nevertheless, I stayed and slowly the disappointment faded away. I started telling myself that if I consider a job from one of my favorite companies to be a big deal then an assignment from the King of Kings is some next level goodness and I felt in my heart that He was up to something cool. I ended up going to Nepal for 3 months last year and during my time there I only saw one person come to Christ. Just one. Yet I wasn't disappointed because the moment that happened I felt like this whole journey was worth it. I felt there were 2 lists in front of me, one of the things I wanted to do and one of the things God wanted to do through me and I watched the list merge into one. At that point I came to the realization that I'd rather see one person come to Christ than to live a life of safety. And in 5 days I'll be leaving to rural Cambodia for 3 months and I know something rad is going to happen, whatever it looks like. So long live the adventure. #typography #illustration
