This began as a contest entry on the Adobe Photoshop Facebook page. They had an open call for submissions, which collected hundreds of entries from around the world. My image made it into the top 10, which were all printed, framed and hung on the walls at the Adobe Corporate Headquarters in San Jose, California.
Abduzeedo hosted a design contest on their website to help them find a new Facebook cover photo. My image joined around 70 other images submitted to the contest, which then went through a round of voting, eventually landing in the top eight finalists.
taking a photo of a lightning bolt striking the shore in Florida, I posted it to my Flickr account. After a few weeks, someone with the television show, Bang Goes The Theory, contacted me to use the photo on their website. Once it was on their website, it was used again later on, during an episode of the show on TV.
After attending a Colorado Avalanche vs. Columbus Blue Jackets hockey game, I posted a few photos on my Flickr account. Eventually, the author Stephen Cole contacted me to use the photo in his book, Triple Overtime - a book about hockey stats, facts and highlights.
Phlearn, one of the internet's leading resources for Photoshop and Photography tutorials hosted a contest to design a shirt for their company. My entry was selected as the winner and later turned into a shirt, available on their website.
