Photographer of the Month: Daniel Burdett

Jordan Oram's picture

The most important thing any artist can have is the desire and hunger to create. This motivation gets you out the door, challenges you to learn new things, to go outside at ungodly hours of the day (or night) in all sorts of weather, to edit behind a computer for hours, and then to repeat it all over again. This month we travel to the West Coast of Canada through the lens of a person whose desire to create has seen him develop a stable of photography skills, and an impressive portfolio, through a few years of dedicated work.

I'm all for supporting good things, as our Wandering Educators know! And do I have a good one today - it's a smartphone app that is all about sharing travel experiences (read our tagline! We love sharing travel experiences!). It's currently in development, and I'm impressed. Here's why... it was created by a 15 year-old - and we know that millenials know what they are doing online.

Through the Eyes of an Educator: Melbourne, Australia

Last week I caught up with a former high school student who happened to be in San Diego, California for a visit.

Why We Should Stop Criticizing the Individual

Everyone has bias. Pre-conceived notions affect individual lives as well as the way in which individuals operate within a system; bias affects the life you are interacting with. Officer Darren Wilson worked in a system where he was entitled to the rights to reinforce the racial bias. Ferguson will go down in the history books as our generation’s civil rights movement. Although there is a heated debate over Wilson’s indictment, I believe the bigger issue is the structural problem of bias in America’s criminal justice system.

But let me suggest something that will be remembered forever, marked down in family lore, and be magical, to boot – stay in a castle.

Yes. A castle. How cool is that?!
