My second trip to the East Coast this summer. I learned to pack less boots and more tank tops. I didn't want to like NYC, because then I would want to live there, but I am grateful for the ability to visit and dip into its vibe here and there. I had a fresh iPhone 6 camera to test out which translated into self-documentation style vlog. I was able to capture moments I wouldn't usually feel worthy of the added inconvenience of lugging around a DSLR. Folks seem pretty surprised to learn it was all shot on an iPhone 6. What do you think? Check it out below along with a few photos of some of the epic street art I encountered.
Long lost photos from my first time ever visiting the Pacific Northwest. We started off in Portland OR where we had three different tour guides providing a variety of perspectives on PDX.
Two good friends were married to each other over Labor Day weekend. The venue was an enchanted wooded location near Santa Cruz. They aimed to (and succeeded) create a fusion of their two heritages and cultures (Irish/Celtic & Ukrainian). I feel grateful to have been included in such a monumental and beautiful ritual. As an offering I created a 30 minute visual meditation on nature and life that was played on loop and projected in the background at the reception. I will share a taste of the piece in a future post.
Since the setting was outside, and the reception location and hotel accommodated pets, my dog Pichu crashed the party in my purse. Here are a few of my photos from the event.
Wedding Venue: Felton Guild in Felton, CA / Reception Venue: Scotts Valley Hilton
I met JCB around 2004 in Phoenix. We were both regular faces at the weekly drum and bass night and bonded over our excessive amounts of screen time. I met up with him years later when he opened up his couch to me in his Lower East Side studio in NYC. I got to play fly-on-the-wall while he worked on some tracks. You can check out his music on Soundcloud.
