This is the dvd cover (and accompanying screenshot) I created for my 1.5 hour video documentary, "Calm Waters Don't Make Sailors," chronicling a 770-mile exploration of the Southeast coast of the United States.
The video was completed on December 17th, 2009 and will be posted in chapters on vimeo or YouTube very soon.
Here's a glimpse at the intro. Enjoy!
I'm in the process of creating a set of spray bottle labels for our eco-friendly products.
This label will be screen printed on a 32 oz spray bottle. We intend to launch a full line of HumaNature products from Pristine Clean Planet, which will soon be available in the marketplace.
The empty white field on the right will provide space for the copy.
Miles for Mountains is a project I helped co-create with Will Harlan to raise public awareness about the issue of mountaintop removal mining.
"Be a part of a million mile march to end mountaintop removal.
Dedicate your next hike, walk, or run to ending mountaintop removal. It can be on the treadmill or the trail…a short hike with some friends or a long backpacking trip…a jog around the block or an ultra marathon. Our goal is to raise one million miles from hikers, runners, and walkers who love mountains and want to protect them from mountaintop removal mining."
The website is still in progress, but the cause is alive and well. Donate your miles (or watch the video) here: http://milesformountains.wordpress.com/
I wrote the cover story for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine's 2008 Green Issue.
I traveled to Kayford Mountain in West Virginia to speak with Keeper of the Mountains founder, Larry Gibson, about his endeavors to save the home of his ancestors from the treacherous effects of mountaintop removal mining.
I've written several other stories for BRO, but this was certainly my favorite.

Here are a couple screenshots from The Blue Ridge Cup website. With the help of editor and chief, Will Harlan, I created and administered this race series for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine.
I wrote all the copy for the website, and coordinated its layout and functionality as well.
I was the Blue Ridge Cup Director for two years, coordinating with participating runners, sponsors and race directors. It is now the largest running race series in the Southeast, and currently in its third year.
