Besides being the managing editor of this blog, I'm also a drummer, a husband, and a father, not necessarily in that order. I love good stories, and great design, and I probably quote the Office more than I should but less than I could.

3 Simple Lessons from a Total Eclipse Adventure

Here at Fracture we were just as swept up in Eclipse-mania as everyone else. Homemade viewing glasses, NASA approved welding masks, and laminated solar eclipse charts in hand – we came prepared to fully geek out.

How Printing Photos Can Make You a Happier Person

Recently a study showed that eating chocolate could help you lose weight faster. Even more recently it came out that the report was in fact, bogus. We were sad. People are still finding it hard to believe that eating more Hershey’s will NOT help them shed those extra pounds any faster. We want so badly for the things we love most to be good for us too.

The Photo that Makes Kelly Smile and Think About Family

Fracture is lucky to have Kelly Logan as a photography intern this semester.
