Estoe And Jim

Being 24 I’m starting to experience and embrace being an adult. It’s weird… I don’t really consider myself an adult. Yes, I have a full-time job at a marketing agency, pay my own bills, own a car that I bought and haven’t asked my mom for money since I graduated from high school. But I still eat candy until my stomach hurts, watch cartoons religiously, have crap grammar, own every gaming console and can write an essay out of emojis(wait what?) – So technically, I’m still a Toys R US kid.

Though I don’t really consider myself a grownup, a lot of my close friends are starting to jump right into adulthood. A couple weeks ago I confirmed my attendance to my friend’s, Jimmy, wedding. As the event neared, I realized that I was in no way shape or form prepared. I asked around my older friends for help on what I should wear and what I should bring as a gift. I was overwhelmed, but completely up for the challenge…

Keezy Drummer

An iPad Air 2 arrived in my mailbox the other day and I’ve been full hands-on with it. One of the main apps I’ve been spending a bulk of my airtime with is Keezy Drummer by software studio, Elepath.

Keezy Drummer makes building percussion patterns easy and fun for anyone!

36 Hours in Amsterdam

Last weekend I was flown out to The Netherlands to do some live production work for Deep Dish at a massive show at Amsterdam Dance Event. ADE is the biggest EDM club festival in the world, with 300 events in five days…
