I am blogging again.

Some of you may not know this, but I first started blogging a while before it really became mainstream… around 1998 when I was only 14 years old. I wrote under the pseudonym “CMYK iNK” (or CMYK_iNK), and believe it or not, it was a photo blog!

The site grew in traffic and became quite popular, but I closed down the site 6 years later after I graduated University and started my first real job in the video game industry. I started blogging again briefly, but never anything with substance as my blog was tied to the video game company’s image.

So here I am, 10 years later, returning to the blog scene. But this time, it’s different. I’ve changed a lot. I know who I am.

I’m only going to be writing about topics that define who I am — and that is, the West Coast.

If you continue to read this blog, you’ll uncover posts about the city, the video game industry, snowboarding, surfing, hockey, golf, food, business and travel. And I’m going back to my roots. I’ll be including my photography in the posts.

I hope you find my blog useful, insightful, and fresh.

Thanks for reading,

    Hockey is stupid. Just like girls. Mostly because they hit me.

    You don’t want the fish. You need something a bit longer and with a wider waist. The fish pretty much sucks on anything but powder.

    Interesting blog. I think you’ll soon love Sundin. Think of Linden but with speed and scoring talent.

    Stumbled across your blog as a recommended read on Google Reader. Congrats on the new move (welcome to my South Granville ‘hood – coffee at the Wicked Cafe is amazing) and nice work on the photography and surfing posts (that Nikon setup with the housing must be $$$$!!!).
