ABGT100 At Madison Sq Garden, New York.

My “real” job is the Media Director for Force 12 Media.com. Last month I was in New York City shooting another web series: Inside The Team Room for our viewers. I had the opportunity to stroll around the city on my off time and wanted to capture a specific photo I had in my head. This photo was of Manhattan from the Brooklyn side, but NOT under or around the Brooklyn Bridge like I had shot last year. My friend Charlie and I made our way over one night for sunset found ourselves on the Manhattan Bridge just as the sun was setting with beers in hand. This was a success in my book regardless of the outcome of the photos. I also connected with a friend of mine who’s a producer at Sirius XM Radio and requested a little tour around the studio. Two of my friends were in town for Above and Beyond’s ABGT100. Naturally we were really excited to be standing in the same studio that so many talented artists have also stood and performed in. We unfortunately missed Above and Beyond’s live broadcast by just a few hours… Luckily their performance was filled with memories at Madison Sq Garden. Here are some photos from the... View More »

Burning Man is like nothing I’ve ever experienced

Burning Man is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I’ve attend EDC, an annual 110k person party in Las Vegas. I’ve traveled to Belgium to rage at Tomorrowland, a 15 stage global music festival. I’ve partied in the wild streets of Bangkok, Thailand. I’ve shuffled at club Amnesia in Ibiza, Spain…. … yet still, none of these events compare to Burning Man. Burning Man is everything you want it to be and more. You create the experience. You choose which activity to join, or which art piece to interact with, or whom to mingle with. The book of activities are vast and creative to say the least, ranging from morning yoga lessons to afternoon tantric sex methodology sessions. The playa is decorated with interactive art installations – there is more art there than you can fathom! There are streets lined with endless bars less than 100 feet from each other. Your cup can always be filled, your stomach always full! No one goes thirsty nor hungry in this place. Burning Man operates on a gifting economy, which is often confused with a “bartering” system. A gift doesn’t need to be elaborate or expensive, a genuine hug can be exchanged as means of gifting gratitude. I carried a Polaroid camera and gifted instant photos to whomever I crossed paths with. Friends gifted: wine, brownies, gemstones, lavender scented potpourri bags, candy, and more. The only items that require money in this community are ice and coffee, everything else is essentially gifted and free of charge. Burning Man is 100% judgment free, The best part about Burning Man is that it’s filled with 70k like-minded people who all journey into the middle of the desert to create a city that is unlike any other. They travel from all over the world to end up in Black Rock City, Nevada and endure the harshest weather conditions the desert provides. This art “festival” isn’t something you attend to simply observe as a viewer. Everyone is encouraged to participate through their self expression, but nothing is required of course. Participation includes: wearing funky... View More »

Rebelution

Rebelution is a “new to me” group of musical artists that know how to put on a performance. I was blessed to hang out with them in the back and get to know the guys for a few minutes before the show. Then when they walked on to the stage they were amazing. The instruments were perfectly tuned and everyone was playing perfectly in sync with each other. It was clear I was in the presence of some fantastic musicians.

Basscamp

I’ve had the pleasure of working with PREntertainment for a few different music related gigs. I’ve always had a great time working with the staff, entertainers and of course enjoying my time “working.” This event was no different… well it was slightly different. The venue was new, and it was a full on festival rather than a single headliner that everyone went to see. I worked with two familiar big names: Candyland and Kill Paris while adding a few new big names to my list while connecting dots with many local DJs that I’ve been meaning to meet. The overall experience was wonderful. Basscamp had two stages running all day and into the night with well tuned sound systems between the two. As the final entertainer, Datsik, came on stage and began to wow the crowd my beautiful girlfriend managed to get plucked up onto stage to perform with her LED hula hoop – an experience that will last us both a lifetime of smiles. Thanks for the photo of her Dan Dunn!

Slightly Stoopid

I’ve listened to Slightly for a few years longer than any other types of music. Connecting dots between music that I grew up listening too and my work/pleasure is a very fulfilling feeling. View More »
