The holiday season is about to unofficially commence as millions of children dress up as their favorite princess, super-hero, cartoon character, or animal.

My phone is a pretty constant presence in my hand. I use it to check email, take pictures, share pics to Instagram, post updates on Twitter and Facebook, reference my grocery list, listen to audiobooks, text, make phone calls, look up passwords, check the weather, play Words with Friends…it basically has a function in almost [...]

Another year, another Super Bowl, another music-related controversy…
The 2014 Coca Cola commercial that aired during last night’s Super Bowl stood out to me for its beauty and simplicity. The images, the angelic tones of the voices—it was one of the few commercials that caused me to pause, listen, and enjoy. A contemplative moment.
