1:45am quiet alone time on my patio. It’s a beautiful night in #NYC sometimes you just need a contemplative late summer night to stare at the stars. #rememberwhyilivehere #brooklyn #parkslope #gowanus #clearyourmind

I had a morning meeting in Dumbo today. And I had completely forgot how much I loved it in the park. Just had to sit for a little bit afterwards with a coffee and stare at the city. What a way to start the work week. #industrialdesign #consulting #itsagoodday #nyc #brooklyn #dumbo #downunderthemanhattanbridgeoverpass #rememberwhyilivehere

What do @prattinstitute #industrialdesign #proffesors do on their #summervacation Well... @designrider comes over to the shop today to machine and turn down his own tools. Why?...because if you can’t buy it...make it. #motofamily #brooklynmotorcycles #designschool #bridgeport #mill #southbend #lathe #precision-ish #solidworks

This is the most civilized 4th of July ever on Rachel @imavantgarde and Chef Ben’s private rooftop. Get a bunch of highly respected #NYC #chefs around and they have grilled chicken hearts on skewers and good #beer We’re kind of #merica hard today in Brooklyn fashion. Now...where’s the crap beer to fully capture the moment as the sun sets and fireworks start on the east river? Today it doesn’t matter if you’re in the plains of Dakota or NYC. I am proud to be #American and my family gave me a better life by moving here so I can be born here. No matter what you think of current affairs, my family came here to avoid genocide. So this is still way better. #nottoday #respect #grateful #motofamily #brooklynmotorcycles #brooklyn #family #neighbors #4thofjuly #america #madeinamerica

Oh shit. Really? Cause this looks like a freshly vapor blasted and ceramic coated cylinder and head for my #1956 #BMW #r26 it only takes years to put my projects back together. But soon! It will be back together and alive. And you can peek from my laptop a swingarm lug for a custom frame BMW airhead in the works. #brooklynmotorcycles #motorcycledesign #motofamily #motonerd #finallygettingthere

Holy hell. I came home to a surprise gift all the way from #sanfrancisco from @handsomeasiansmc thank you @pao_asuncion There’s even one in the package for @keinocycles haha! Check out @handsomeasiansmc #documentary on their #winning #dirtbagchallenge #rattler build. Our #motofamily is not only built on love and friendships but also far reaching and lifelong. #motonerd #motorcycledesign #motorcyclefamily #asian #motorcycle #brooklynmotorcycles

Look at me and @mix_dimmens being classy and optimistic. #professorlife #whatthehell

This plug and play tuning with @higginsnyc on his #Honda #cb1100 and it’s new #powercommander to accommodate his new #yoshimura exhaust is so much easier than fiddling with all the vintage crap. But alas...vintage is from where I came...so that is what I love. #brooklynmotorcycles #motonerd #motofamily #workingoutthekinks

Saturday morning adventures with @cosmeticcourt and @akashian hunting for #treasures at estate sales for #midcenturymodern #furniture and #turnofthecentury goodies. It’s only a matter of time before we end up buying a Sprinter van to kick it up a notch at this hobby...

I can always count on one of my best friends for 12 years Corinna @miss1932 for making me embrace my secret inner American carnie. And wonderful to see @jdwilkes and the @legendaryshackshakers with a side show with new friends @eli_rose_the_debonaire_mystic and @d.r.malfitano
