holy update





I'm making this quick because I really should be asleep right now.

What a last few months!

I worked my butt off working in Pasadena with Dave, building up portfolio work, finishing paintings, and putting together my first makeshift reel. All this paid off...

I'm now employed at Brand New School, a design studio in Santa Monica.

It starts as a paid intern position for 2 months and who knows how many doors this will open for me.
I'm actually designing for the first time in my life, something I've always wanted to do. ... (design, not sell my soul to the devil in advertising).
This is my 2nd week there, and so far it's felt like CS4 Boot Camp. By the time I come out of there, I know I'm going to have a friggin arsenal of skills under my belt. Plus, I figured if I can handle the ridiculous speed the advertising industry in southern CA moves, I can handle anything.

My life starts now.
Bring it.

live from Seattle!





Hey guys.

So I'm in Seattle for the next 2 weeks working at Superfad studios.
Superfad? More like SUPER RADDD.

...(ahem)
anyways,
I'm working with Creek and Dylan on a commercial for Sharpie which should be wrapped up by the 29th, but may push a few days more.
In the mean time, I'm enjoying my super plush room at the Silver Cloud Hotel.















King size bed to myself? Sounds like a whole lot of WIN to me.

Gonna explore the city this weekend, if we don't get called in to work that is. The weather's supposed to be nice.
When this gig's wrapped up, I'll be headin back down to Portland for a week or two to tie up loose ends..aiming to be back home in LA by mid/late June but WE'LL SEE.
Time to tuck myself in for a night of Deadwood then off to sleep.

an ode to Patrick Daughters

As if it's not obvious by now, music videos are a huge inspiration to me. They have been since I was very young.

I recently learned that several videos that I've really enjoyed in the last few years were all done by the same director.
Patrick Daughters.
The stills I'm posting here don't do justice to the actual videos, which are so full of movement, emotion, rhythm, and energy ...not to mention exquisite lighting.
No other music video director's work has evoked so much emotion as Daughter's videos has.
I salute you, sir.
