In an effort to show more work thats been hiding in my 20+ hard drives, here is an oldie but fun profile of Joe Driscoll, beatboxer, rapper extraordinaire. Big ups to DJ Afar as well. Missing the ‘Cuse today. Good times.
I BARTed it up to the City last night and ended up shooting two protests around the downtown area. They couldn’t have been more different. One was the Pro-Palestine folks vs. the Pro-Israel folks right across the street from each other! Everything was peaceful other than the chanting and arguing back and forth between the [...]
Check out this short Uniqlo pop up launch party event I had the opportunity to shoot some video for a while back. Music by the awesome and talented mr. J-boogie of Dubtronic Science!
I think Ron Wotus, the Giants bench coach said it best, “Giant cockroaches never die.” Congrats to the 2012 Giants World Series champs! Let’s start a dynasty fellas. Enjoy the pics.
Close to a half decade of shooting and editing is complete as the Lovely Day documentary made its world debut in Oakland. I was honored to be asked to take photos at the world premier. Directed by Kerri Gawryn and edited down from hundreds of hours of footage, the movie follows the story of youths [...]
Amazing barely describes today’s historic day when the space shuttle Endeavour flew just 200ft. above Moffet Field! Never have I been so close to an actual “spaceship” and I’m not sure I’ll ever see one again (crossing fingers). Wish I had time to video it too, but they only made one pass. Check out some [...]
I had been itching to get back to New York since leaving Syracuse. And even though it was like 100+ every day with crazy lightning storms, it was all worth it to see old friends and eat real pizza. I’ll see you soon.
The 30th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival is over, and for me the video work for the festival is all but finished with the release of a few new videos highlighting the Salons. You can check out the newest salon video here, with more to come soon. For now revisit the Gala Style [...]
And now for something a little different. I produced this video with the writing talents of H.P. Mendoza, director of the San Francisco themed Colma and Fruit Fly. This year at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, he’s here to promote his latest flick, I Am A Ghost. His first horror film. We [...]
I’ve been a hip hop head for probably 15+ years now and it was an honor to interview and shoot DJ Neil Armstrong, tour DJ for Jay-Z and current global music ambassador for Addidas. A humble dude, Neil shared stories about coming up through the game, seeing DJ Shortkut “kill it” on the stage, and [...]
So way back in Novermber of 2011, I had the privilege and honor to shoot my good friend’s last and final farewell to Distortion2static. The pics have been up for a while, but I took some video and finally put something together, check it out below. More videos and pics to come soon, including a [...]
Check out some pics from the SALT City Showcase thrown by one of the most prolific music video directors in Syracuse James Domroe. Eclectic evening of hip hop, alternative, and rock n roll. Hope to see more of these in Syracuse soon.
It’s good to be back home in the San Francisco Bay, and also to be a part of the inaugural SFNY Yacht Club party! Good folks, amazing weather, ample booze, and good eats. One more trip around the Bay?
The Mac Miller show in Ithaca was smokin… literally. Some genius set off the fire alarm and hundreds of college kids were pissed off and had to leave the building while the fireman checked out the scene. So no Mac Miller, but I got some spot news pics! Pretty cool show though, the crowd was [...]
Last week I got a chance to be a part of Project New Orleans with Momenta Workshops, and to learn photography and different ways of seeing from some inspiring coaches like Jamie Rose, Chris Usher, and Tom “TA” Smith. My challenge was to produce a multimedia video about Make It Right, Brad Pitt’s non-profit dedicated [...]
Amazing local Syracuse hip hop artists live at Sparks Gallery.
Syracuse University represents at Sparks Art Gallery!
Check out my final project from last fall semester. More videos and updates coming soon!
I’m still in complete awe and amazement that it’s actually real. My piece for the Fall Workshop for graduate school at Newhouse won the Momenta scholarship! I don’t usually toot my own horn, but this project was a month’s work of getting to know the Carter’s, and a full day of non-stop editing at the [...]
This weekend us graduate students at Newhouse have an amazing opportunity to attend the Fall Workshop, which promises to be an intense 3 days of non-stop shooting, editing, tearing apart, shooting, and editing some more. Sounds like fun doesn’t it? This will be really similar to my Missouri Photo Workshop experience, but instead of a [...]
This summer I had an amazing time visiting my homeland Taiwan. I hadn’t been back since 2002. Though the sights and smells (stinky tofu) were all familiar, my large family and cousins were slightly different. All the cousins I had known grew up becoming teenagers, and new cousins came out of nowhere. We also checked [...]
I’m just a bit late to posting the pics from Bay to Breakers #99. This year’s um “race” seemed somewhat tame. Until you ventured out to the Panhandle where it was no holds barred partying and deficating on trees, houses, and random fences that were no where near private. This will be my last B2B [...]
Pork belly sliders, check… Fries with mysterious fowl meat and cheese bits, check… creme brulee, check… AND chicken adobo, check. Yes a few of my foodie friends and I stuffed ourselves silly at Heart wine bar in the Mission. Food carts galore were packed into the loungey spot. Those featured were the infamous Creme Brulee Cart, [...]
