Thanks to Net Magazine for selecting NY Train Project as their Side Project of the Month for the October issue. This is my first time getting a write up in a major printed magazine so it’s pretty exciting. You can purchase the latest issue at any major book store or online here.
Last week I took a trip to Seattle for the first time. Despite what many people say about the weather it only rained once and the other days were pretty sun. Seattle has a great mix of mid-size city feel, surrounded by green lush, water and a ton of outdoor activities to do. The city is really walkable and is ranked 4th friendliest biking city in America.
If you visit Seattle, be sure to check out the EMP Museum (Experience Music Project). Contrary to the name, the museum also includes a Sci-Fi and Horror Film section which I liked. The architecture around the EMP is also really interesting.

There’s no lack of food choices in Seattle either, thanks to the diverse city the options are pretty comparable to NYC. Some of the places we ate and I recommend include Westward, Mikes Noodle House in the Chinatown, Pie Bar (Alcohol and Pies) and Taylor’s Shellfish, both in Capital Hill. The Seafood at Pikes Market is really good and while your there check out Oriental Mart, a small tucked away Filipino restaurant that’s amazing.

Shutterstock recently posted an article on 4 Things Recruiters Look for in Design Portfolio. I’m honored to have my site mentioned in this article. I’m constantly tweaking my portfolio to make sure it stays relevant and presented in the best way possible so I’m glad it’s paying off.
For anyone looking to spruce up their portfolio or gain more work leads, this is a good read.

Urban Isolation is a video that follows a skater through empty Los Angeles streets and highways. Those familiar to LA usually knows the city is pretty busy and rarely look this eerie. Think Walking Dead minus the Zombies.
Over the 4th of July weekend I took a trip out to Austin, Texas for the first time. We spent most of our time doing outdoor activities and of course, eating. The vibe of the city is really laid back and people are ridiculously nice. I guess coming from New York, I didn’t find the city to be that “weird” except for all the angled parking, that was kind of strange. Overall, we had a great time and hope to come back again sometime.

If you like outdoor things to do, Austin has no shortage of that.

Austin is the capital of food trucks and their literally everywhere you go. Here’s some photos just from 2 of the many ones we ate at.

This past weekend I took a road trip up to Syracuse to visit some friends. It was a nice to get away from the city for a couple of days. I was really fortunate to receive a loaner car for the trip thanks to Drive The District. The Cadillac ELR was insanely nice, definitely the best car I ever drove or rode in.
We spent most of our time outdoors at a farm and also picking strawberries at a field. Not my usual weekend activities but it was a good change of pace from the city life.
Thanks to Drive The District and GM for the amazing Cadillac ELR car loan
