Sequoia Studio

My interest in writing about finance is at an end. It’s been an incredibly fun journey over the past 6 years. But the writing has been on the wall for a couple years now, as you can probably tell by the steep drop off in any kind of production around here. I’ve been in a comfortable place with our finances and investments for a long time now, but have never felt comfortable sharing many details about our finances or what you should do with yours.

I’ll be leaving the website up so all the articles up to this point are still around, but there will probably be no new articles related to finances and investing going forward. Maybe stuff to do with the business aspect of photography.

Anyways, I am moving on to other projects.

Photography has always been an important aspect of my life so I’ll be dedicating my time to photography pursuits going forward.

Here is a link over to one of the photography projects I’ll be working on going forward.

Some people need to take photos of animals, or cars, or sports. I’m drawn by landscape. These are some photos I’ve taken with the Fujifilm X-T2 over the past half year as I learn the ins and outs of the camera.

A Beautiful 10 Mile Run in Portland

We were recently in Portland for a little extended weekend fun (summer really has been a lot of fun, hence the sporadic posting around here lately). Portland is like a second home to us by now – we’ve been enjoying being tourists in the city for the past 3 years. The World Domination Summit was going on over the weekend, so it was fun to see all the attendees scattered around town with their name badges and backpacks. We went back in 2013, but have “un-conferenced” ever since. This year, we didn’t even end up going to any post-conference meet ups (we also ended our Guinness World Record breaking streak). However, we did run a stunning 10 mile run in Portland along the Willamette River that has been one of the coolest things we’ve ever done in Portland.
