Moving. Again. Yes!
At the end of October we pack up our stuff and take the trek to New Jersey. We are extremely excited to be making this move. Exactly 3 years ago we were planning our move to Texas. Our plan initially was to be in Texas temporarily and make the move to the northeast as soon as possible. I never imagined what our time here would bring us. We’ve learned a ton. Work has been consistent. We’ve met great people and got involved with great organizations. I feel like our time here was meant as a portal to the future, perhaps just a glimpse of whats ahead.
The truth is though, I have no idea whats ahead. The only current plan is to get to New Jersey and continue to push pixels and put websites on the internet.
Initially we will be staying in a month to month rental while we figure out where we want to settle.
I’m looking forward to connecting with other creatives and organizations in the area.
If you either live in the NJ/NY/PA/CT area or know someone I should connect with send me a message – quinonez(at)gmail.com.
See ya on the East Coast, The Best Coast!!
A few months ago I was invited to a Hillsong concert that was scheduled for December 1 (this past Thursday). I was looking forward to it.
Up until the week of.
It was right after the week of ThanksGiving. We had family in town for the previous 2 weeks, we had barely been home. And that week we were incredibly busy. Between work schedule, projects, fundraisers, life group, meetings, phone calls and just life it seemed like it would just be better if we didnt go.
But the problem was we were invited and I wasn’t going to tell our friends that we couldn’t make it.

I don’t know what I’m doing. That’s something I tell myself often. Not just when it comes to doing something I’m unfamiliar with, but when im doing what I do day in and day out. The truth is most of the time I feel out of place. I’ve told Tara this a lot of times. I’m afraid one day I’m going to get found out.

, Love By Action
Earlier this year I met a couple of guys who were starting a new NPO (Non Profit Organization) called Love By Action, whose purpose is to serve those in poverty, specifically in a slum area of Nairobi called ‘Mathare’.

A note of warning. This post will probably be extremely long. You are more than welcome to read it. Some of it may not make any sense, this will serve more for me to be able to go back to and remind myself about my time in Kenya.
Im finding it extremely difficult to sit and write this. I think its because 1. it’s hard to go through and revisit the emotions i’ve experienced in the last 11 days and 2. by writing this update its like its officially over.
Starting from the beginning (before the trip)
If you read my first few posts you know that 1. I love to dream about things that seem way huge and bigger than anything i can do. 2. One of those dreams is to travel and tell the story of people and organizations doing work around the world. Read More

If you read my post here you saw that God is opening some incredible doors for Tara and I. Im a huge dreamer and its still surreal to me that when God gives you dreams, as crazy as they may seem, if you give your all to pursue them he will make a way for you!
I think i have a little experience about giving something up to pursue a bigger dream. We’ve given stuff up four times in the last six years! In February 2005 i quit a full time job to pursue media as my career, In June 2005 we sold everything we owned and moved to Denmark to work with Master’s Commission there. In 2006 we moved back to FL without knowing where finances or work would come from Read More

“A moment without technology.” Those words meant something to me tonight. By default because of my work and what im passionate about i’m always connected. Always on my phone, laptop, desktop, i can even log on to twitter on my TV through my blu-ray player.

In 2006, as i was helping a missionary friend with some media projects, God began to give me a dream.
Up to that point my biggest dream was to work full time doing what i had found to be my passion back in 2002, media creation (graphics, web, video).
So in 2006, almost immediately after landing my first full-time gig, it was time to dream again. This dream was a little… a LOT bigger… and i knew it would take time before it would begin to unravel.

So im definitely not a “writer”. I will usually think of something and think “i should write/blog about that” and when i sit to write nothing comes to mind. I do think blogging is good and i want to start putting stuff down so i can look back in the future and see the path ive gone down. This blog will be completely random probably.
As i write this tonight im in a hotel in Arkansas. Tomorrow i’ll be attending a conference (http://genesisconference.tv/), but im mostly here to hang with one of my good friends who lives in Europe and is in town for a few days. Its been cool to sit and dream about the future.
Im looking forward to dreaming the next few days while im away from home, and outside of my daily routine. I feel like God has been showing me snapshots of the future over the last few weeks. Things i have dreamed, prayed, hoped for are falling into place and it is crazy exciting! I really wish people would challenge themselves to pursue their dreams more often.
If your dream is crazy, expensive, takes more time than you have, more skills than you have and takes more imagination than what you can give….GO FOR IT!
