Had a lot of fun directing Niska’s music video for Reseaux Remix featuring Quavo and Stefflon Don. The first version of the approved treatment was cancelled due to some conflict. Luckily I was given a second chance to rewrite the treatment for animation. Thanks to the change, I was able to work with Ethan Redd again who killed it handling […]
I often work behind the scenes, but for this piece I had the chance to work in front of the camera with Champs Sports for the launch of the Puma RS-0. I was tasked with re-imagining the shoe by flipping it into a video game. Cinema 4D, Substance Painter, and Unity were the tools I […]
Made it back to Japan for my 4th time in a row. Each visit to Japan gets better and better, I don’t see myself getting tired of it ever. This time around, I spent a lengthy 20 days in Japan. Here are some pics from the trip(don’t forget to check out more after the jump).
Instead of being stuck in LA during a heatwave for Labor Day, my girlfriend and I decided that it would be cool to spend the holiday weekend up north in Seattle, Washington. Neither of us have been there before and being the adventurous people we are, we just needed to hop on a plane somewhere. Luckily, […]
I don’t really hide how much of a geek I am anymore. I enjoy building computers, developing apps, and I also work at a tech company. In addition to all of that, I’m heavily into the game Overwatch right now. I started playing on Xbox, but things got way more serious once I made the switch […]
Back in March I was contacted to see if I would be interested in directing a music video for Dutch EDM producer, Dyro. Having worked with Dyro back when I used to do stage production for music festivals, I jumped on the opportunity immediately and built out a treatment for his latest single ‘Surrounded’. Once […]
Here are some pics from my trip to Israel. I went out with my two best friends from high school for 10 days in the motherland. It was a good escape from being attached to my computer 24/7.
I built my own pc to handle the work I’m going to be doing in VR and 3d this year. It took me about 6 hours to put together and I’ve been stuk to it ever since I’ve booted it up. If you’re interested in the parts, feel free to check them out here.
Nike Sportswear sent me a massive LunarCharge package the other day and I’m literally still freaking out over what was inside it! I had no idea what to expect when I pulled this customized Pelican Case out of the box. There’s no way that this was gonna be JUST a pair of Nike’s LunarCharge shoes. […]
It’s starting to become tradition that I go to Japan every Summer. In September I took another trip back out to Japan for two weeks. Like my trip back in 2015, I was out in Japan alone just wandering around making friends while also finishing up a music video for the Glass Animals. Here are some […]
Since July 2016, I’ve been busy working with the super talented English indie band, Glass Animals. My management, I AM SOUND, connected me with them after hearing that they were looking for someone to bring their latest single, “Season 2 Episode 3” to life in form of a music video and an app. The ball instantly […]
Pics from my trip to Japan ^_^v
This week I launched my very first app I’ve ever developed called Drizzy Tearz. It’s was a super fun 7-month process where I worked closely with my good friend, Myk, who handled all the designs while I focused on the code. A lot of Drizzy Tearz was developed when I was in my hotel or […]
I spent my Labor Day weekend running the very massive Sunken Garden stage at the 20th anniversary of Nocturnal Wonderland. It was wildest 3 days of pixel pushing I’ve ever done!
I took a solo trip to Japan and was shown around Tokyo by The Uwaga Pies.
I went to the most beautiful place for work last week, British Columbia… I found myself back in Canada, but instead of landing in Toronto I ended up in Vancouver>Whistler>Pemberton. I was astonished by the wilderness! Being a kid from Los Angeles, I never really get to see much greenery. Another reason why I was […]
I’m totally cool with not being home these days. Being able to travel for work has always been a dream, but I guess it’s kinda really happening now. This time around, I stayed in the states and made my way out to Chicago to do production design work at Mamby On The Beach…
Spent 2 weeks running around Europe for work. Here are some pics I grabbed while hopping around 5 different countries… Ibiza, Spain Amsterdam, Netherlands London, England Toulouse, France Brussels, Belgium

I’m starting to get used to traveling. I’m nowhere near being a full-blown jetsetter, but I am slowly becoming a monthly regular at LAX. This time around I flew out of the states over to South America to do some production work in Colombia. I know that sounds suspicious, but I give you my word that everything […]
I was invited to chat with my buddies Jason Stewart(Them Jeans) and Nikki Jagerman on their podcast Tall Tales. Had a lot of fun talking EDM, dating, Social media and Snoop! Check it out here.
Nothing gets me more inspired and excited to work than seeing another creative walk through their process of executing a project. Online education site, Lynda.com, challenged creator of Field Notes, Aaron Draplin, to design a logo in 15 minutes. Not only did Aaron design a logo, but he also broke down his workflow and explained it […]
I finally got the chance to upgrade my bedroom battlestation for 2015. When I’m handling client work outside my job, most of it usually goes down here. Now I’m 100% ready for any all-nighter project thrown at me thanks to my new Mac Pro setup.
Being 24 I’m starting to experience and embrace being an adult. It’s weird… I don’t really consider myself an adult. Yes, I have a full-time job at a marketing agency, pay my own bills, own a car that I bought and haven’t asked my mom for money since I graduated from high school. But I […]
For the Halloween weekend I was hired by visual arts studio, V Squared Labs, to handle live production at HARD Day of the Dead, a 2-day music festival out here in Los Angeles. Here are some pics of the stage setup I ran that weekend.
An iPad Air 2 arrived in my mailbox the other day and I’ve been full hands-on with it. One of the main apps I’ve been spending a bulk of my airtime with is Keezy Drummer by software studio, Elepath. Keezy Drummer makes building percussion patterns easy and fun for anyone!
Last weekend I was flown out to The Netherlands to do some live production work for Deep Dish at a massive show at Amsterdam Dance Event. ADE is the biggest EDM club festival in the world, with 300 events in five days… Spent 9 hours flying to Amsterdam via KLM. The highlight of my trip was taking a […]
If I didn’t have a massive fear of heights, I would be doing exactly what On The Roofs is doing. I’ve always wanted to dominate skyscrapers and hijack a billboard. Catch the vid of their daring adventure below…

This past weekend I took to the Hollywood Bowl with thousands of fans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons. The longest-running prime-time animated series remixed the Hollywood Bowl as Springfield to experience the show live. It was mind-boggling seeing the voice actors perform on stage as their characters, but that wasn’t the best […]
I recently discovered a new addictive game from Method of Action that helps you master the pen tool. This is like Flappy Bird for graphic designers. Check out The Bézier Game.
I’ve been meaning to purchase a new pair of headphones for a while now and it finally happened while I was going through an Amazon binge the other night.

I was brought on by my buddy Calmatic and Donald Glover to handle VFX for Jhene Aiko’s for here latest music video “The Pressure.” Besides from waiting on the footage to work on, I made sure to drop by the set to make sure each scene was shot properly, so that it would be easy […]
I’m just now starting to travel a bit more. I recently got the opportunity to do some live production work out in Toronto at Digital Dreams Music Festival.

I’m back in Los Angeles and fully recovered from SXSW. I was out in Austin, Texas to handle live stage production for my job’s showcase, Respect The West. This was my second time attending SXSW, and it was nonstop the whole time… Once I landed, I took a taxi over to meet up with the […]
This week I was featured on MySpace. It’s funny, because it kinda all started on that site. In high school I used to make silly videos and post them on MySpace for my friends to check out. That’s pretty much how I built a following. Last week the social network connected and interviewed me to […]
I may have gone on a pretty ridiculous mission to get the new Retina iPad mini that Apple made quietly available today. It all started when I was in my office and my coworker, who is also an Apple fanboy, convinced me that we should pick up our minis. We called around to multiple stores, […]
Are you guys on Vine yet? “Vine is a mobile app that enables its users to create and post 6 second video clips.” It’s currently one of my favorite apps at the moment and it’ll only take at least 6 seconds of your life away. Here are some of my most recent loops from my […]
A bit late on posting March’s Mobile Flicks… Sorry about that. ^^CLICK^^
I went out a whole bunch in October. Click the pic below to check the gallery behind it all! ^^CLICK^^
2008, 2009, and 2010 were amazing to me, but 2011 definitely hit the spot when it comes to me reaching my life-achievements by the age of 21. I couldn’t thank my friends and family more for the support… Hanging with Dan – One of the bigger projects I started off with in 2011 was a […]
Earlier this week I received a package from OWC(Other World Computing). In the box was 4x4GB modules for my computer. I recently purchased a high-end iMac for my bedroom studio and I didn’t max out on RAM because purchasing RAM from apple is WAAAAAY too expensive. Instead I got my 16GBs from OWC… If possible, […]
I had no idea Insomniac was going to drop a movie for EDC. I’m actually super stoked because I worked on this when I was apart of the production team at EDC 2010. Stoked to see the turnout of a rave in a movie theatre… Awesome.
Today Rachel and Kellen took me to a candy shop called “Rocket Fizz”… Candy+Angry Beavers+Carmegeddon = AWESOME SATURDAY!!!
Currently in the studio with 12th hanging around and listening to some epic sounds. Borgore is also somewhere around here.
At work we gathered around GoogleTV to watch Obama answer questions from users on Twitter.
Hope everyone had an eventful 4th of July. My GF took me up on a roof of a random USC building to view the festive-warfare that was going on in the skies of LA. It was awesome!!!
This is what I do at work.
I had a pretty great 21st bday last week, my mom and brother got me an iPad, all my friends kept my phone buzzing all day via social networks, and my GF took me out to a nice dinner + had some pretty cool gifts for me. I was more than satisfied and had no […]
Nothing like a nice Saturday that’s dedicated to film/new projects!! Dropped by my old film school’s orientation. It was great to see all my old film buddies there!! After the orientation, I headed over to Mollie’s place to go over the documentary that she’s working on. Mollie is a recent LMU grad and a killer […]
It kinda blows my mind how I’m finally 21(it was official June 12th). To be honest, I’ve been 21 since I got ahold of my older brother’s i.d. when I was 18. That turned my whole life around, I got access to places and met friends I would’ve never met if I didn’t have that […]
My job had me choose a drive for me to work on for projects. Decided to go with a DIY(enclosure and 2.5″ Seagate HDD) drive from OWC… I was pretty stoked to get the package, I’ve never put together a drive in a enclosure before, though I was really familiar with the process. Tried to […]
My GF and I kiinda are a reeeaaally creative couple. With her being a USC business major(design minor) and me being a digital media artist for a marketing firm, we’re always talking about design, concepts, kerning, Photoshop vs handwritten pieces, color pallets, and anything pleasing to the human eye. With that being said, we’re bound […]

Hope everyone had a great one. I know I did.
Being stuck in post-production most of the time, I always forget how much I love being on set contributing some labor. It’s always rewarding. Don’t get me wrong, being stuck in front of a computer editing, comping, tracking.. etc is amazing(it’s magic!), and it’s where my heart is… But being on the production stage surrounded […]
No matter what kind of artist you are, you will always have work of yours that hasn’t been fully finished. That could be because you missed deadlines, lost inspiration, or you just got caught up with other work. I’ve had a couple projects unfinished. They usually start off with full of inspiration and a clear […]
This is the last bit of 2010 I’m going to be posting, then I’ll be letting go to the amazing year I had. Here’s the last of 2010 via my iPhone. Make sure to also check out the Mobile Flicks archive HERE. ^^CLICK^^

Slowly but surely getting started on a project, can you guess what the theme is? More info coming soon.
Lately, I’ve been making sure to stay as busy as possible.

I’m stoked to say that I’m successfully […]

Lazy Tuesday has been so good… Stayed out until 4am the night before then woke up in the late afternoon and kicked it with some buddies.
It’s that time of year, that’s right, It’s the holiday season. I’ve always been a fan of the holiday season, there’s tons of joy and people are happier than usual. To be honest, I’m posting this while listening to the Jackson 5 Christmas album… Today I went to Toys R Us to purchase 2 toys […]
In celebration of The Simpsons’ 20th anniversary, artist Bill Mudron put together this piece. The drawing above consist of all the main writers/producers/directors. I bet you guys didn’t know that Conan O’Brien was once apart of the show way back, yup!
My day started around 8am. My iPhone’s alarm went off 2 hours before and I completely ignored it… I was late and had to be in downtown at 9, but I was lucky because I only lived ten minutes away(driving). Once I noticed what time it was, I jumped out of bed and headed off […]
So I’m here in the office in downtown and I was just shown this amazing video. Glad I’m not a baby, it’s hard. Check out his live performance after the jump!!!
More to come soon…
Paul Devro and I had some minor beef in the club…
Woah, I haven’t been out on a Tuesday in a whiiiile!!! Well, let’s start. So this amazing Tuesday started off with me in Hollywood, I was there to meet up with Jessica for a screening of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus at the Mantalbán. If you didn’t know, this was Heath Ledger’s last film he […]
For the past 4 years I’ve been emailing my mom my Christmas list with a link and why I want it(or some type of explanation). What’s on your Christmas? This is my list for this year… ^CLICK^
Usually my plans start with a text message asking me if I’m going to a certain event, of course I have no idea what the event is and embarrassingly have to ask what it is, where it’s at, and who’s DJing/performing. After I receive all that info, I send out a text or two to […]
I want this DIY arcade button midi controller. Don’t know if I should buy it, or just wait for Christmas…. Click image below for more info!
That’s why I made this^
I got a nice package from YouWorkForThem. I don’t really buy clothes anymore but getting some warm sweaters for the colder season was definitely a must… YouWorkForThem isn’t actually a clothing company, it’s more of a graphic designer’s paradise. They offer tons of tools for the everyday artist. They also have an awesome blog worth […]
The beginning of my night was AMAZING!!! I was actually in West Hollywood to kick it with some friends at Voyeour, a club off of Santa Monica, unfortunately they didn’t allow cameras which sucked. But I did happen to meet a really chill guy at the Fountain Liquor & Market. Hilton Hammed is the owner […]
Though I couldn’t get in to the grand opening of the Hello Kitty gallery, I decided to take the second trip out to Royal T in Culver City. I was pretty excited to check out all the art in person, it looked pretty awesome(from what I saw online). Check out the pics below! I really […]
This is something I made just because I was bored. It’s a poor render, but I like it!
To celebrate The Simpsons 20th anniversary, Marge Simpson will be celebrating by MILFing it up on the cover of the November issue of Playboy magazine. Being a huge fan of the show myself, I will make sure to get a sealed copy.
A couple of months back I posted that I saw a picture of DJ Mehdi with the perfect shirt for me. During that time, I had no idea where to get that shirt and I posted that if anyone knows where I can get it, to please contact me… Several emails/tweets/comments from the lurkers of […]
I can honestly say that I ‘look up’ to him.
