I'm a visual storyteller, working primarily in the medium of photography and photoshop. I listen to more podcasts than I can keep up with and enjoy gardening, cooking, reading, and am striving for a sustainable lifestyle. A big-picture thinker, I am always trying to put the pieces together, and though things are scary these days, I believe humanity will pull through.

BARCELONA, Spain--HP's new Slate 7 isn't just a repeat of HP's earlier TouchPad. This time, the smaller display and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS remind me more of the Google Nexus 7.
