I’m a lover of many things. Color, jazz, festivals, men’s cologne (reminds me of my Dad), coffee, my nieces/nephews laughter, love, authenticity, vinyls, sunset, sunrise, fall afternoons, Low End Theory. You get the picture (pun intended). It’s a lot.

Also, I love to share my passions with anyone that will listen/see/read. (Sharing device/best friend: my iPhone 6 <3)

A budding iPhoneographer, here’s a journal of captured moments i’m building.

pursuit(S) http://sdotekeste.com/pursuits/ Tue, 30 Dec 2014 06:16:08 +0000 http://sdotekeste.com/?p=69 Read more about pursuit(S)[…]]]> #girls | #Ethiopia | #running | #badass.

These girls have inspired me for years. They’re fearless, determined and driven. On their very own pursuit. In 2010, I was introduced to The Girls Gotta Run Foundation and it’s been all love ever since. A non-profit org. investing in girls to empower themselves through running and education, GGRF get’s “it”. A volunteer-fueled effort, I initially had the pleasure of collaborating with the folks at GGRF to offer digital marketing services in order to build up their social media presence and overall online visibility. In 2013, the GGRF website was the focus of my digital media capstone project and I worked to improve the on-site user experience by updating the site to a responsive website and enhancing the visibility of the brand with a social media package. Check GGRF out on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

I implore you to explore just a step further and read about these amazing girls.

project(S) http://sdotekeste.com/projects/ Tue, 30 Dec 2014 05:52:37 +0000 http://sdotekeste.com/?p=63 Read more about project(S)[…]]]> We’re all made of stars.

“With chemical elements forged over 14 billion years in the fires of high-mass stars that exploded into space, and with these elements enriching subsequent generations of stars with carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and other basic ingredients of life itself, we are not just figuratively but literally made of stardust.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

That’s about as close to believing in magic as I’ll ever get. Below is a fun little star-inspired interactive media project I created.

The goal is to continuously and unequivocally be expansive.

sound(S) http://sdotekeste.com/sounds/ Tue, 30 Dec 2014 05:04:31 +0000 http://sdotekeste.com/?p=55 Read more about sound(S)[…]]]> sound (n). magical vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person’s or animal’s ear.

One of the things that inspire me the most is music. Drawn to many different sounds and genres, I’ve tried to get into the habit of exploring different styles and being as open minded as I can. I use my music as a form of escapism as well as for sheer enjoyment. I’m also very compelled to share my favorite sounds with the rest of the world.

After all, what’s the point if  someone else can’t enjoy it too right?

With that said, I would love to hear some of your recommendations 🙂
