Just wrapped a 72 hour west coast all hustle, no sleep tour with Sean Forbes and Jake Bass. We performed in Salt Lake City for the first time, seeing an amazing turnout of about 350 fans. We then flew over to Reno to perform at the University of Nevada, Reno, with a tiger in the crowd. From there we flew out to Riverside, California to perform at a Deaf Awareness Street festival where the temperature was a cool 100 degree’s when we took the stage. It was nice to be back on stage with the band again after a summer hiatus.
The last four months of life has been absolutely crazy busy, which explains my complete lack of updates. Life has a funny way of taking you places that you least expect.
Since I last posted in May, I took a spill skateboarding on a halfpipe and fractured my wrist, which put my left hand out of commision for a month. While that was healing, I headed off to work my 10th Bonnaroo Music Festival which saw me clock in 82 hours of work in just 8 days. I took some much needed R&R and took off to Chicago to enjoy the Grateful Dead’s final GD50 shows. Followed up by a short 5 day vacation in Tamarindo, Costa Rica which was the last of my summer downtime.
In July, I was invited to LA to Assistant Direct alongside director Jules Dameron for a new online TV series that is currently under wraps and will be debuting in the New Year. After a week engulfed in Hollywood with a small crew of 25, I then took off to New York City with the D-PAN crew to Assistant Direct a soon-to-be released ASL music video for a band that is currently dominating the charts right now. This project saw me coordinating and scheduling a shoot with a crew of 50 and overseeing 80 people on set.
This summer also saw me working quite a lot of concerts, ranging from Lana Del Ray, Kenny Chesney and One Direction to name a few.
I’ll let the attached photos share my stories of summer. I’ve broken them up into 3 galleries;
1st: Rock n Rollers
3rd: Photos from the Film sets I worked on
I look forward to sharing all of my work very soon. Until then…
