I have been thoroughly blowing it on updating this blog. Here is a few details on what/where I’ve been lately.
I moved out of Queens in September to move in with a friend in Los Angeles. Van Nguyen saved my life, mentally. Scooped me up from my friends apartment and took me under her wing for my last three weeks out west. She is one of the raddest humans ever. Super psyched to have met her. Thank you, Van.
During this California “move” I had been living out of a suitcase and didn’t really have access to my iMac, or an area to set it up. Sooo, I just resorted to my iphone. : ( I honestly have been using my iPhone and instagram more than my DSLR. This cannot be a good thing. It’s just sooo easy.. God, that sounds pathetic. Well, at least I’ve been “shooting?”
On Dec 11th, I flew back home to Tallahassee. My hometowns skate shop was having a 20yr. anniversary. Not to mention, it was about to be Thanksgiving and my mom has to be the best cook/baker on the planet. Had an amazing time back home with friends and family. Matt and I secured an Apartment and began our cross-country trip towards Long Beach.
Due to finally having Internet, here is my instagram filled post. Other photos to follow.

Flew into Tallahassee on Saturday morning because my grandpa passed away. One of the happiest and funniest men I have ever met. Gonna miss his jokes with no point and his goofy behavior. RIP John..
Here are some photos from the weekend. Got to see plenty of friends and family. A really good weekend despite the bad news and the continuously awful US Airways.
Drove up to Phaze in my dads van to surprise whoever was working. Parked in front of Retrofit Records next door which ended up being my friends new record store. Jerry and Sharod were inside, and kept looking into the van looking super confused.. they didn’t think it was me because no one knew i was in town. Surprise fools!
