My Face is on the Front Page of Giant Bomb

It was announced that Facebook bought Oculus VR today. When I did my evening check-in on Giant Bomb, I noticed something familiar about the promo shot Alex Navarro chose for his article covering the matter.

Let's zoom in on that...

Oh, it's me!

Oh, it's me!

I had a photoshoot back in September 2013 and took my Oculus Rift development kit with me to get a nice promo shot I could use for any future coverage of the device I might do. I uploaded it to the Oculus Rift page on Giant Bomb immediately upon receiving it, and it looks like Alex decided to use it! The photo was taken by David Pascua, who did a great job of angling everything so the cord and control box aren't visible.

One of my Favorite Modeling Photos

I went to Charlotte, North Carolina on December 20th, 2013, to hang out with a friend one last time before she moved to California. We were at the SouthPark mall doing some clothes shopping when I saw this at the Gap:

 The man on the left is Waris Ahluwalia, an actor and designer. The woman on the right is Quentin Jones, who describes herself as an "animator, director, illustrator... with a boy's name." on her Twitter profile. The photo is for Gap's "Make Love" campaign.

I rarely go to malls and hadn't read about the controversy that popped up around the photo back in November, but it immediately caught my attention and I took the above picture with my phone. The full version is below:
