Like so many other creatives, I’m indebted to Steve Jobs and the products he helped foster at Apple. Constantly going against the grain with his entire being, Jobs was the true “crazy one” and helped all of us seamlessly and simply adopt technology as a lifestyle and not just a vocation.

The moment I heard of his passing, I immediately felt the loss. He will always be one of my heroes, as well as a person I’ll continue to look to for inspiration not only in words but in action. As I was driving home the day I heard the news I thought to myself, if he lived in New Orleans, how big would that second line be? Here’s to you Steve, long live the dream!

Here's some of my favorite images and video found around the web...
