Sloucher Turns Model

I never would have imagined myself getting into a situation that would require me to utilize my appearance in a project. Either hiding behind a camera or disappearing behind a pen, I wouldn't say I expect to get much work from my face. So it was surprising for me when I was approached by the lovely Audrey Kay to model her Fall 2012 line for her boutique.

We had been discussing doing videography of her winter event as well as several promotional videos so when she had the idea of me modeling for her website, I was slightly apprehensive. But hey, my inner attention seeker and beggar of praise was intrigued.

Come the day of the shoot with my friends in tow, I was blown away by the immense fun and creativity that was involved. Never once did my insecurities get the best of me (extra thanks to Audrey for cheering me on behind camera) and was surprised with how flattering my pal (and normally my cinematographer) Boa Simon shot me. Of course, my hair normally resembles the 1970's shag and would probably better suit a member of The Runaways, but Micah Embry saved the day without effort. It is times like these that remind me how lucky I am to have such talented and amazing people surrounding me. And hey, now when I become old and wrinkled I'll have proof that I was once young.

Riding a Lumberjack

What started as a joke regarding Oregon, this illustration is a visual representation of how I felt while there. It makes me giggle.

One of the things I enjoy most about new projects is the chance to collaborate with other talented people.

One such great experience was during post production on The City of Lights when I had the chance to work with a very talented composer, Brian Andrews. If you get a chance to listen to his music, please do.

I was so lucky in the fact that he understood my bizarre descriptions of how I wanted the score to make one feel.  Somehow he took my request of 'nostalgic' and 'balkan folk' and was able to create mesmerizing themes through out the short film, slowly interweaving them to the point where you would begin to pin point the themes overlapping each other. But don't rely just on my description, click here to enjoy.

And heck, if you enjoyed that why not just watch the entire short film by clicking on the title above.


After many years of deliberation and second-guessing, I finally have put up my website and have started a blog! 
I'm very excited to finally have a single place for people to view my film work as well as photography and art. I plan on adding some older photographic series in the next few weeks so please check back in!
Also on the horizon is a promo video for a very talented DJ but I can't give out the details just yet. 
I hope for this blog to be a silly mixture of doodles, film work, and random things that intrigue me. Hopefully, this will amuse you as much as it does me and that I will catch you later.
