Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.

We Never Stopped Jumping

Zak Erving

Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina, has captured my imagination since I first learned about it. Stari Most, its iconic bridge, has made it one of the few establishments in the world that can be identified by a silhouette, though it lacks the size of New York or the energy of Tokyo.

But more important than the bridge is what it represents, and the people who lay claim to its heritage. When Stari Most collapsed from shelling during the Balkan Wars in the 90s, it was seen as the destruction of a monument to peace. The flavor of that war, if it wasn't sour already, was rotten with dispair.

So when it was reconstructed in 2004, it wasn't just another feat of engineering. It was a triumph of hope, and the realization of the immutable human spirit. And in true Mostar fashion, a centuries-old tradition picked up where it had left off.
