California Inspires Me

I’m a huge fan of the work of Jack Black, which hardly makes me unique. I’d struggle to think of a production he’s in which I didn’t enjoy tremendously. I met him in person briefly, once, years ago, at a gallery opening in Culver City. He spent about 5 minutes entertaining my then-infant daughter, much to everyone’s enjoyment. She was in one of those Baby Bjorn type things so he was aiming his performance at my torso, weirdly. He was every bit as funny in real life as on the big screen, which I thought was nice. It’s not as cool as Jeff Hamada’s Jack Black story, maybe, but that’s life.


Last week, talented photographer/architect Brandon Shigeta shot me in my old Jordan 1’s for this #OnFeet feature on fashion news outlet and online retailer Hypebeast. Seeing your feet online is kind of fun, and I figured that was the end of that. Yesterday more photos appeared in this Streetsnaps feature. I was just supporting my former employer Jeffstaple – the shirt is a collaboration between his clothing label Staple Pigeon and gifted artist Naturel.


New Year’s Revolution

Yesterday I spent a few hours at the Agenda Show in Long Beach, catching up with old friends and making new ones. One highlight was spotting myself and lots of friends and contacts on the booth for The Hundreds. They asked several talented photographers to contribute portraits of people in and I was lucky enough to be photographed by John Pangilinan, along with Jeffstaple, Julia Huang, and Brandon Shigeta. We were also asked to give our names, where we live, what we do, and goals for 2015. Check them all out here.
