British Columbia is so beautiful!

I went to the most beautiful place for work last week, British Columbia…

DSC08217DSC08229 DSC08250 DSC08261I 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 shocked is because Toronto looks NOTHING like this!

Now that BC is on my radar, I will definitely be taking the 2 1/2hr flight up north to get away from the concrete jungle.

Beachside in the Chi

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 Beachchicago Continue reading

“GIRL” BEHIND THE SCENES

Syd and Matt of The Internet brought me on-board to work on their music video for their latest single “GIRL”. It was a fun one day shoot in a green screen studio with the band before I left for Europe…

Colombia and back

DSC07020 copy

DSC07024 copyI’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 that went down was 100% legal. I was just working the biggest music festival in Colombia, Estereo Picnic.

Even with all the traffic that clogged the streets of Bogota, my driver was kind enough to take the scenic route to the hotel I was staying at. This gave me the opportunity to see a bit more during my short stay in Colombia, since this was one of those work trips where I fly to a country for about 24 hours, then fly back home. Very similar to my trip to Amsterdam.

It was a struggle to leave my baller hotel room, but I had a live set to run for DJ/producer duo, Deep Dish. It was great closing out the festival and doing another successful show with them.

DSC07366 copy DSC07376 copy DSC07382 copyI thought the hotel was amazing, but I was astonished when I found out I was going to be flying first class back to the states. This is definitely the most fancy work trips I’ve ever been on.
