To a lot of people this is just a car, but to me this is a milestone.

I’ve wanted to get an A5 since I was in school, it was my realistic dream car. But I knew to be able to afford a car like this I’d have to put my head down and work till one day I’d be able to do it. 
Last Friday I made it happen. What’s just a car to some people to me is an accumulation of the work I put and a symbol of my ability to envision something and make it happen. If I set a goal, I know there’s nothing that can stop me from reaching it, other than myself. This car is a reminder that I am able to do anything I set my mind to and it’s just the start. I’ve come a long way from where I was and I know I’ve still got a long way to go, but I’ve learned steady progression is the only way to get there. Nothing comes easy, nothing comes fast, there’s no free hand outs. The only thing I know is to focus on where I want to be then put my head down and work to make it happen.

I don’t ever post long captions like this but this still feels surreal to me. Every time I see the car I have to remind myself it’s actually mine, the other day I just sat inside it and took it all in.

For everyone that’s supported me over the years, I appreciate you and everything you’ve done for me. For everyone who’s working towards something, just remember it’s only a matter of time till you crush that goal. ✌🏾

Usually I would’ve only posted the second image, but I think taking a wider perspective to show some context is a better way to visually tell a story. -

The Temple of Hercules at the Amman Citadel, at one point there was a colossal statue of Hercules here but apparently it was destroyed during an earthquake.

Back when Amman was a Roman city called Philadelphia this amphitheatre fit 6,000 people.

Amman felt different yet familiar at the same time, there was characteristics that reminded me of both Dubai and India.

But the way the architecture was set into the landscape was different from anywhere I’d ever been before. Especially with the mix of the older Roman architecture, this style in the photo and then the new contemporary  buildings that were starting to come up.

Pulled the face edges of a mesh structure to use as a base for this exoskeleton structure.

I like the simplicity of the first image more but the second illustrates how adding levels of subdivision add complexity to the structure.

Got back from New York with new energy. Time to make moves and do the things I’ve been planning to do for a while, no more procrastinating.

2019 NBA Champions. 😏

The Toronto Raptors from the city referred to as the 6 bring home the Championship for the first time ever by winning a game 6 of the finals, now that’s a narrative that’s going to last a long time. 🏆

Been a minute since I’ve done some 3D work, had this concept in my head for a while felt good to finally get it out and executed.

Sometimes taking a step back puts things into perspective for you. Lately I’ve been going to the Candid Conversation talks at @launchpadtoronto and one of the things that’s come up consistently is the importance of narrative.

For the last few years I’ve been using this platform to share my work but I realize it’s been detached from any context. I’ve been playing with the idea of putting out some more process work on here; a look into who’s behind the work and how it comes to be. Would that be something you’re interested in?

I’ve realized that working on your skills and building your self is only part of the equation, you have to create opportunities for yourself to apply those skills to see the outcomes you desire.
