The Challenge of our Age
The Challenge of our age is an in-depth digital & print series, originally published in the Portland Press Herald/ Maine Sunday Telegram, detailing stories about hunger, elderly abuse, alzheimer's disease, caregiving and more. The web presence was designed to integrate the beautiful and meaningful photography and video with the stories.

Fine art for modern living, handcrafted in Maine. Ida Collective products are a blend of modern design and an ink transfer method akin to pronto plate printmaking, which means every piece is unique. Inked onto blocks of treated pine wood, ida collective products make for an interesting and personal touch to any home.
portland indie band & brotherhood
Hidden in the northeast corner of Portland, Maine, the members of Pinsky have quietly been making not-so-quiet emo music for the last 7 years. With 2008's Two for the Road & 2011's Losing Touch, the band drew comparisons to Hot Rod Circuit, Braid and Jimmy Eat World. With there final release Weekends , the band touts the emergence of a group that has outgrown comparisons and has grown into their own full-throated sound.
