May 2013 in Photography

Just when I thought April came and went without a peep, May seemed to whiz by with even more turbo. Only after reviewing the photos I’ve taken during the month did I realize why that was. It was choke full of activities both on the work front, and in the various passionate endeavors I engaged…

Flourish

To flourish. I like engaging in all manners of creative activity. It is the water to my seed, my growth factor, my balance. Last week I had the opportunity to shoot some portraits with some friends. I met Fleur through a good friend of mine, Liz (a guest blogger of mine), over a year ago…

Balancing life with the weekend

And a healthy dose of balance. This weekend has been a treat. As you might remember, I wrapped my short film, JUST LIKE THAT, last week and I’ve been taking every opportunity to hang out with friends, watch movies, eat tasty treats and even catch a little theatre. Friday night was spent with some old…

The weekend was the truth

2Nai means true. (Pronounced) Tunay means true. But before we get into that, I want to send a shout to to Jeremy for being a cool-ass-guy; Hung out, grubbed, and just had a chill time over all. It’s nice to take a brief break from some of the pre-production tasks involved in my movie, Just…

Now Circa Zen

I went to work today. A Sunday. But I work in a performing arts theatre –working on a Sunday is not so uncommon, even if it just front of house type of work. March has been such a whirlwind type of a month that going in for a seven hour shift answering phone calls and…

Don’t mind the roundhouse

March. I can’t say enough about this month. Or maybe there’s just too much to say about this month that I’m immediately overwhelmed when I decide to write about it –hmm. Food for thought. This past weekend tossed me in the arms of several neat projects. Adobe Youth Voices camp. I can’t say enough about…

Being Hueman

HUEMAN. That’s not a typo. I first came across that word from an artist friend’s (Allison Torneros) Tumblr page. Being a fan of wordplay, I was instantly smitten by it and the transparent ideas it represented in human diversity, mind and body.. How insanely obvious it was that everyone has their own personality but so…

Five easy and practical ways to survive Black Friday

The sun is up, and I survived Black Friday. And I’m writing this entry to share these life saving tips with you. It’ll take a lot of practical application of common sense, crowd control savvy, and most importantly, caffeine. Coming out alive on a Black Friday is akin to the survivor’s journey depicted on that…

The Power of Collaboration

A few months ago I was offered an opportunity by a friend and colleague to write about my experiences and feelings in regards to working in the 48 Hour Film Projects. She wanted me to touch on my involvement with various teams within the community, highlighting the ups and downs. And while it took me…

Affair at the State Fair

Sacramento, location of the state fair. And my appetite. And I know everything in Texas big, but hey, Sacramento has its moments… It was my first time ever going to the State Fair and while it had a lot of the immediate look-and-to-dos as other fairs, there was the fact that it was a massive…

Swimming in Pool and Broth.

I can’t help but notice that my blog posts are usually about two things, mostly: Food and Acting. By today’s web-reader standards, I’m hardly a foodie. Just a fat kid who loves the simple pleasures of palette pleasing and passion seeking. I spent this past weekend in Sacramento, with The Mardens™ –at the State Fair!…

iWonderCon 2011

I survived WonderCon 2011 with both my eyes. But boy did they get a work out. I’ve always been a comic book fan and given the chance I’d probably start collecting comic books again. I have to thank my co-worker for reminding me that WonderCon was right around the corner. I made sure to update…
