Hermosa Nights

A long time ago, In August 2014, I was living in a garage in Hermosa Beach and shooting whatever content I could. On Labor Day weekend, I convinced a bouncer at a nightclub in Hermosa Beach that I was the club photographer of the night. It couldn't have been more of a lie, but I looked the part with the long hair and black V-neck. What ensued was 8 hours of documenting lights, music, drugs, and alcohol in roughly 4,000 square feet of space. I hardly participated in the revelry aside from a few drinks and some dancing because people in party mode are a sight to behold. They scream, sweat, drink, laugh, black out, and in general try to have sex with each other. It's ridiculous, and it perfectly encapsulates the South Bay lifestyle of Los Angeles, CA.

I hope you enjoy the chaos.

New Places... Fresh Thoughts

Getting artsy and blown away by how seriously big and climbable those cliffs are....in Parque La Huasteca, Mexico.

I've been in Mexico for 3 weeks. Every day has been filled with hard work, shooting, and editing, and that's not going to change for a long time. This is brand new adventure, and keeping it an adventure requires hard work 24/7. It requires a change, if you will... in lifestyle, career, and destinations. I couldn't be more thrilled.

Essentially, I threw out my old portfolio, trashed my first website, and bought a one way ticket. Everything is gone, and I'm starting from scratch. I like it.

Every day I get better and I learn something new, and each day is another chance to grow, create, and share. Not all images or moments will be perfect, but that is the way of artistry. You work. You analyze. You improve. You move on to the next one. 

I hope you, the viewer, finds this work to your liking and the stories therein captivating, and maybe, just maybe, we can share a rope and taco somewhere down the line.

 See you out there,
