Adam FlandersHey! Sunny here. Check out my site and feel free to contact me. You’ll find links to my resumé, research, digital artwork, and much more. If you'd like me to create something for you, such as a website, CG animation, an LED-lit sign, etc. just ask and we can work something out - my rates are very reasonable. Please visit my company website, Seashore Design for more information and to view my work.

I’m very much a Romantic at heart: “marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealized; marked by expressions of love or affection.”

I've been living in California for a month now and I've been enjoying it very much. The first few weeks were very busy getting a California driver's license and registering my car (which is from here), finding a good gym membership, and taking care of all those other little details. I've been volunteering with the San Diego Zoo and I just started a cool new job in horticulture.

My timing was good - Orange County Pride kicked off last week and they had a fully loaded schedule culminating in the all-night Laguna Beach Party. I've made lots of new friends and I'm looking forward to meeting more!

To be honest, I miss my family and the poms a lot, as well as my friends in Maine and Louisiana. Home is always where the heart is (so maybe I can get them to move out here, hehe). It was a difficult decision to leave, but a big part of me feels like I belong here. I often felt like a square peg in a round hole when I lived in Maine. SoCal values align much better with my own - health conscious people, environmental protection, and science and tech everywhere, not to mention it's so much easier to be a vegetarian here. And no snow! Each region of SoCal has its own subculture, but I'm quickly adapting to life in the OC.

Caribbean 2017

March 9, 2017

I'm currently in the Caribbean with my family and a friend for a 12-night cruise on Royal Caribbean. I created a public Google Photos Album that I will update throughout my trip. We'll be stopping in for adventures on five different islands throughout the Caribbean and I've got my Canon DSLR, GoPro, 360 Cam, and some other cameras to record everything.

#WeAreOrlando

Thursday, June 16, 2016

Only a few days before the tragedy in Orlando, my home town of Belfast, Maine celebrated its first Pride event. As a teen, bullied daily for being gay, I never would have imagined Belfast having a Pride celebration, much less that I'd be marching with my company, athenahealth #gaythenista #athenaculture. I am looking forward to Southern Maine Pride and Bangor Pride this month as well.

Unfortunately the recent events in Orlando remind us that there is still a great deal of hate in the world and we must come together as a community if we ever hope to heal. Our community can't just be limited to LGBT people and our allies - it must also embrace the faith community, Muslims included. We cannot allow ourselves to become further divided by new fears and prejudice.

In the coming weeks, vigils will continue across the world to remember those we lost. The events in Orlando could occur anywhere and so it's critical that we present a message of peace and inclusion. Working together and understanding our differences helps us recognize we all share so much more in common. We must listen to one another and keep an ongoing dialogue. It is the only path forward if we hope to see an end to unrest and violence.

He drew a circle that shut me out-
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him in.
