I am finally blowing the cobwebs off of this site! I realized it’s been quite a while since I have updated seeloriwork.com. I’ve been lucky to be very busy, doing some very cool work. However, that means that extra projects, like this site, get neglected.

Recently, I shared my new desktop background on my Instagram stories, and I was happy to see that many of my friends are just as into organized desktops as I am!

I threw together a few less specific versions. I didn’t spend tons of time on them, so they all use the same family of swatches and typefaces. Each is formatted for a traditional widescreen, at 1920 x 1080.

There’s a reason the phrase “Somebody’s got a case of the Mondays!” from Office Space sticks around. If there anything harder than going to work after a gloriously relaxing/fun/productive weekend?

My commute to work varies by season and when I get up. Depending on the day, I might be driving, car-pooling or riding a bus. No matter the transportation, there’s always an audio component. Continue reading

IMG_0106In case you didn’t get the gist from my previous post, I took an unforgettable trip to the UK in April. I thought I’d share my view of London and beyond through random photos I took.

Last month, I was lucky enough to travel to the UK for 16 days. I went to visit a dear friend I’ve known since we were 11 and had a wonderful time in London, Bath and Windsor.

I managed to cram most of my “Absolutely Must Do/See/Experience” list into the time I was abroad, which means there are entirely too many things to list here. However, here’s a quick rundown of my favorites: Continue reading

I consider myself both left- and right-brained. (For this post, we’ll ignore the fact that it seems to be pretty much a myth.) While I love design, color and all things creative, I also thrive on logic, organization and … data. Continue reading
