Today is the day I put all my things in a van and left San Diego for the East Coast – Brooklyn, New York. For a kid who was born and raised in the sunshine and cool vibes of Southern California, well, this is a big change… and the imminent winter may be telling of that.
I won’t tell you about how much I’ll miss everyone or about all the incredible experiences and people I’ve met over the past few years or any of that, all I want to say is that San Diego has been the perfect stomping grounds for trying new things and experimentation – to hone in and figure out what I love to do and what I want to pursue. Now I’m moving to New York to focus.
Today, I’m embarking on a 10 day roadtrip with my Dad and we are going to have a blast. I’ll keep everyone updated via twitter, instagram andfacebook. I plan to take a ton of film photos also, which I will upload to flickr at some point.
Around the 15th of November I’ll arrive in Bushwick and unload the van into my new apartment where I will be living with my girlfriend, Leah Goren. She is the most creative and ambitious person I know, we make a great team and I can’t begin to explain how excited I am for the things we will accomplish together. Our first task will be designing the apartment, building shelves etc. and making it feel like a home.
New York is a big place and I can’t wait to make it my own. I’m excited to start new routines, find a new coffeeshop, see new faces and most importantly, embed myself in a new community.
