On March 22, 2008 I ended up with extra tickets to see Justice at the Ogden Theater in Denver. One of those tickets ended up in the hands of Nichole Berger. Five-and-a-half years later, I asked her to marry me in a gallery in San Francisco. In the months leading up, I commissioned 19 friends, including graphic designers, illustrators, tattooers, and craftsmen, to each design a poster that would be a single letter in the proposal. This group included friends from Boulder, Seattle, and San Francisco, capturing the landmark places and events in our lives together. In secret, I collected the art, bought frames, designed my question mark, printed and trimmed each poster, and approached galleries. I found the wonderful guys at Book & Job Gallery who bent over backwards to help make this event a success.
On August 17, 2013 I brought Nichole to what she thought was a poster show organized by friends and co-workers from my last job. What she found instead was a show called Love Letters. A show where I got down on one knee, and asked her to be with me forever.
She said yes. :)
