While reorganizing my files, I found these photos of me with the accordion in various situations and decided to post them here, just for fun.

The one above is from the karaoke competition at the 2015 edition of the GIANT Conference, a great UX conference in Charleston. I’m doing Young MC’s Bust a Move, and won an Apple TV as a result. I still have it, too!

The photo below is from a party held at Social Game Universe’s offices on Toronto’s King Street West when I found a unicorn mask and decided to try it on:

These final photos are from Year One of the accordion — the year when I first took the accordion out into the world, yielding some surprising results:
