I get by with a little help from my friends

To put things simply, I have truly fantastic friends! I really feel like I cannot say enough about how important friendship is to me and, as of late, I've been blown away by the love and tremendous level of support I find in my friends.

Just a few days ago, two of my good friends Mike and Luke, with whom I stayed while traveling abroad, returned home after a lengthy expedition throughout Australia, Japan, and much of Southeast Asia. It has really been a pleasure to have them back!

In The Studio With Blueskyreality

I spent a day in a recording studio with Blueskyreality, this past Wednesday. Though I've been witness to a handful of recording sessions, it is always amazing to see how dedicated people are when they're working so intimately on their passion-projects, and the limits which they push themselves to.

As of late, I have been lucky enough to travel for work. I have noticed how at home I feel in an airport and how well I sleep while at cruising altitude. This blog has mostly revolved around traveling because, to me, it seems to be the one thing that is totally worth writing about. I lament the fact that this blog has sat stagnant for so long, but still it's nice to come back to. Hopefully I'll be returning before too long.

Though not much has been going on here, on my blog, lots has been going on in my life. I've experienced some pretty significant changes in the past couple of weeks and I'm in a completely different place in my life.

I graduated college about ten days ago which was a huge accomplishment for me; looking back at my choices at various forks in the road makes me glad that I stuck it out and finished right on schedule! It was great to complete my goals and I know that it meant a lot to my family; which is one of the most important points for me.

I live in Downtown Los Angeles now! I moved into a loft with a couple of friends, on the first of this month, and here I am a week later; still trying to adjust and get settled in. Yesterday was my first day feeling like a local; my roommate Chris and I rode our bikes down to skid row to visit my grandmother (Gwams) who works at the Catholic Worker soup-kitchen; it was cool to see her in her element in the hectic grind that drives that area.

From there Chris and I rode up to the LA county library, signed up as members, and gave ourselves a self-guided tour of the place. It was HUGE! They had several floors, fantastic architecture, tons of historic documents displayed as art and they even had a Yousuf Karsh exhibit! We came back home after that, so that I could get ready for a shoot and when that was through a few of us went kite-flying on our roof; it was awesome!

Later on in the day my good friend Adam and I walked through the fashion district, the garment district, on down to Santee Alley; it was hectic and fascinating and it was cool to see where all the materials, bits and pieces come from that drive such a huge industry.

The night ended by signing up at our local video store, Old Bank DVD, which had a great selection, good prices and a rad vibe! From there we headed back home to watch a movie and unwind.

All in all, it was a fantastic day, it's been a fantastic couple weeks of transition and I have so much more to look forward to!

Factual Facts


The bicycle film festival will be in town this weekend and I'm super pumped about it. This will be my second year going so I've only had one year of experiencing it, but I can wholeheartedly say that I really enjoyed the experience. I like bicycles (a lot) and I like artistic imagery (a lot) so it's only natural that the merging of the two would be an awesomely amazing experience for me. You should go! check out this site and make some time to experience this event.


In other news (and this pertains to the tittle of the posting a lot more)...

On a whim last night, a few friends and I agreed it would be clever and silly to start a fact-posting blog and so we did!

Really quick....

I haven't blogged in a while so I thought I'd try to quickly blast out an update.

I'm about to graduate college in TEN days! I'm super excited that I stuck it out and finished school; I'm really happy about completing one of my biggest goals to date.
I'm moving to Downtown Los Angeles in TWELVE days! I found a loft in the exact building that I have been wanting to live in and I'm going to be sharing it with two really rad dudes. Also I will be living directly above my good friend Adam!
I've recently gained some much needed clarity on my life! I was fortunate enough to get to spend some quality time mapping out some scenarios of what moves I could make, just after graduation, and how they might play out; I did some serious thinking and wrote out a short (yet effective) list of goals and I really gained some momentum in a definitive direction.

I am really looking forward to the future; the immediate weeks that follow, as well as the years to come.

I'm really stoked on life right now!

Figuring Life Out

I'm officially twenty-one days away from being a college graduate and I'm finding my mind wandering all over the place. Doubts, hopes, insecurities, dreams, wants, and desires all make up the whirlwind of emotion that I'm feeling. There's no set course of action, which is both liberating and disorienting. I'm maintaining the belief that I'm going to land on my feet and that I'll be fine, I just really have no idea what I'm going to be doing three weeks from today.

These images have little to do with the major context of this post, except for they were shot while hanging out with some people who I love and in a building which I'm considering moving into, in Downtown Los Angeles.
