Stance approached me to animate their 2016 Zodiac sock collection. We created a short film that features each of the zodiac signs. Each piece of paper was painstakingly cutout by hand and it took about 3000 images to create the complete stop motion animation. Editing by the handsome Kirk Dianda and soundtrack composed by the talented Dana Dianda. Check out my Instagram for more BTS photos and time-lapse.
Mr. Dianda and I had the privilege of directing and shooting the global campaign for Oakley’s Olympic Green Fade eyewear. The campaign rolled out with an Olympic athlete commercial and then continued during the Olympic blackout period with a BTS commercial with non-competing athletes and three box videos featuring Oakley’s Olympic garment line and matching Green Fade eyewear. It was an absolute pleasure working with some of the world’s greatest athletes for these pieces, and we’re so happy how it all rolled out. Special thanks to our incredible team.
I had the opportunity to shoot some behind the scenes for the Adidas, Away Days film directed by the super talented Matt Irving. Matt had organized a special visitor on set to surprise the boys, and lots of laughs and mischief ensued. Check out Away Days on iTunes!
Oakley gave the keys to the Dirt Lab to BMX dirt jumper extraordinaire, Mike “Hucker” Clark, and let him create the jump line he’s been dreaming about. Hucker is hilarious, which made this such a fun project to work on and an awesome experience having the opportunity seeing a BMX course getting built from the ground up. Thank you to everyone involved!

We had the opportunity to travel to Japan for work this month. I’ve always loved the equal amounts of tradition and technology that you find in every aspect of life in Japan. The reverance and passion for food, aesthetics, architecture, nature and cuteness is contagious. Here’s a photo journal of our explorations.
We recently took a road trip up to Northern California to visit family… We drove along Highway 1 north of San Francisco into Humboldt County, and got to see wild ocean landscapes, rolling green hills of farmland, and the otherworldly old growth Redwood forest. Here are some of our favorite memories from the trip.
Every spare second I have, I’ve been learning how to play with ceramics! I can’t believe it’s taken this long to find out how much i love it. Here are some cheese platters I’ve been working on. Can’t wait to experiment more. <3
