Canada Trip

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. My buddies over at VT Production commissioned me to handle stage production for the recently reunited house DJ duo, Deep Dish…

I’m a Simpson!

I just want to start by saying that I’m a MASSIVE fan of The Simpsons. For the past 5 months, my friend Brittani, who works for the animated series, has been telling me that she has a belated Christmas present for me… I NEVER thought it would be THIS! Brittani partnered up with the Asst. Director of The Simpsons, Edwin Aguilar, to make me into a Simpson! Super shout to Brittani for this.

We Are NRG

I was sent down to San Bernardino by V Squared Labs to handle live stage production for Insomaniac’s sold out event, We Are NRG. This major EDM event was fueled by the top DJs with insane visual production to amplify the overall experience…

dsc02585-copy Before the event started, I had to make sure my pixel map was perfect. I tweaked around the mapping the night before, but made some minor adjustments once I was all plugged in the day of the show.

#SXSWhoop

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…

dsc01828-copy Later that I night I ended up at a Media Temple’s party that was filled with Def Jam artiss. I was actually in line to get into the event and ended up meeting two peeps from Google who were able to get me +3 of my coworkers in. It was a packed event – I saw Pusha T, Method Man & RedMan, 2 Chainz, and Schoolboy Q. I never knew Media Temple, a web hosting provider, could throw such an massive party.

dsc02430-copy Respect The West was the next day. We had a super early load-in time with multiple production crews running around. I was handling the stage production which consisted of 8  x 55″ vertical displays + 4 LED light bars(You can check out more on my stage setup on my Behance). Though we had a couple of hiccups, we did manage to pull off another successful event that consisted of awesome guests and performances.

dsc02469-copy My last day in Austin was spent meeting with my buddy, Sam, that I used to work with at Apple 3 years ago. Sam currently works as an engineer at Mutual Mobile, a consulting firm that specializes in building mobile experiences. I was able to check out their office full of standings desks and thousands lines of code being written.

dsc02470-copy Austin was exciting, stressful, and of course, weird. Can’t wait to go back.
