Hello Reader, It’s been a while. There’s a lot that went on the last few months, I wish I could write about it all here but at this point it’s really way too much. So I think I’ll start this first post of the year with a video I made all about my 2017 creative video projects. Then, I’ll sprinkle in some of my favorite photos from the last few months in my writing. Enjoy: The life of a starving artist was just that: starved.  I think I lost close to 15 lbs while unemployed last year.  I did end up finding a job.  IRead More →

Hello Reader, Been a while. Three months in fact. This post has undergone more than a few updates within that time as a draft. I think I will go ahead and post this and write another post right after because of all the content I have to share. Back in August I had the chance to meet a bunch of new people and took a trip by myself for a week to another country. It was an all around exciting and inspiring time, and I’m going to write about it all now. First off, I had the opportunity to hangout with my old friend PatrickRead More →

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.” – Bruce Lee Hello Reader, For Jamie and I, this past week has been a stressful emotional roller coaster for certain.  Monday night, we packed our bags and got ready to leave for our two week trip across Europe.  Due to some complications (very, very long story) we left the terminal at LAX after watching our flight leave without us.  Disappointed, frustrated, and drained we left the airport and began our unplanned stay-cation in the City of Angels.  Good thing we packed. The next few daysRead More →

“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see.” – Muhammad Ali Hello Reader, I never knew the second half of that saying until very recently.  The quote itself is obviously in reference to boxing technique and style, but that second half holds a lot of deeper meaning. “The hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see”.  Sounds pretty obvious right? You can’t hit what you can’t see. But think about how this can relate to handling our own problems or reaching our own goals, hitting our own targets.  How many people can you think of thatRead More →

Hello reader, Looks like this was becoming a regularly occurring monthly thing until now. When I started writing this post back in March it was intended to be an introspection about my future, but now it’s also about love, friendship, and rocks (yep, rocks). I’ll need to back track a bit now to get started. It’s already the beginning of May now, but March is my birthday month and my wedding anniversary month. March is a lot of things for me. I got married literally days before my 21st birthday. I could start off by saying that getting married that young wasn’t easy, but in truth, itRead More →

Hello Reader, Los Angeles has always held a special place in my heart. So many memories with old and new friends. I’ve come to know it as a place where things really come in focus for me. I’ve had a lot of moments of clarity and inspiration during our little trips. Not to say that every day there has been a creative epiphany, but there have been the few times that have really allowed me to grow as an artist in some way or another. This most recent trip really helped me grow in my confidence with my street photography. I say this so manyRead More →

Hello reader, There is a lot on my mind at the moment. Lots of photos this month and memories made. As we inch ever closer to the end of the year it’s only natural to start to reflect on what has come to pass.Read More →

Hello reader, I’ve been doing a bunch of portrait photo sessions lately so I figured I should make a post of some of my more recent ones.  Funnily enough the last two ladies I shot with both had blue hair.   I was lucky to have met Helen Chung earlier this year when we were both working on a music video in LA.  She’s a very down to earth person and she’s got jokes too (check out her instagram @helen.chung). I had heard a lot of good things about the arts district in downtown Los Angeles so we met up there and walked around.  Read More →

Hello reader, Normally I don’t post too much of my street photography photos, but it’s honestly one of my favorite styles of photography.  Street photography, in it’s most basic form, is the taking of candid photos of people in their everyday actions.  There’s no real rules to it. They can be remarkable instances in time caught by chance or totally out of context just to tell a story.  Most people shoot in all black and white but I like to add some with color that I feel tell the story better with color. I fell in love with the style over a year ago afterRead More →
