Henry Visits Chicago 2014

So my kid brother got to visit for his spring break. We’ve been sharing friends, music, foods, and giggles. Also, we’ve taken some pictures:

Parker Headshots

Parker is a hilarious, warm, compassionate storyteller with a gift for improv and music. He came to Chicago to be a part of the service year program my partner belongs to, and now has plopped himself into the thick of things here. Parker is about to audition for the Second City conservatory and knows how to pose. See here:

Raych Jackson “Dragon”

Raych Jackson is a phenomenal spoken-word artist, 3rd Grade teacher in Chicago Public Schools, and all around super human. Here is the first of hopefully many collaborations to come:

Jordan Rome

As a young professional, I am always excited to partner with others who are beginning their careers. Jordan and I went to school together and through random connections realized that I could take some headshots for her and she could give me some cool clothes, fine wine, and a spa treatment at her day job in return. I love circumventing capitalism when possible.

Look out for this face.

Slow Flowers Indiegogo

Debra Prinzing came into my life as Ben’s mom and has now become one of my greatest inspirations. She is arguably the greatest advocate for locally grown flowers, writing books and publishing a weekly podcast (which I have the honor of editing) to gain momentum for this movement.

She is working to raise funds for a new website, Slowflowers.com, that will act as an online directory of sustainability-focused florists and farmers across the country. Please consider contributing to her Indiegogo campaign here.

My brother Luke and I created the informational video on the Indiegogo campaign page as a promotional piece for potential donors. At this point, the campaign has already raised more than $1000 each day since it launched. What a fantastic reflection of the flower community!
