Video: Comin’ In Hot

I made a music video.  Not my first one.   I’ve done the Fox Music holiday videos, one for my friend Paula’s band Lonnie Starlet and one for Eleanor Dubinsky for a song Dave wrote called “Love Is”.   The Fox videos are getting to be bigger and bigger productions every year and they are a lot of […]

Video: Lonnie Starlet “D S G”

I made another music video.   This is my second one.  My first one was pretty much a spur of the moment thing – at least the shooting of it was.   This time I actually planned it and we had two shooting sessions.   The whole thing is such a big challenge for me.  I really like […]


I am so lucky!   Beyond lucky.  I have my health, a great job, I live in a great area, have loving family and friends but last night I got a jolt of super luck. I got to go to the Musicares event last night.  Ive been to this event many times in the past and […]


I have no real business at the NAMM Show but I go almost every year.   Our print publisher Hal Leonard gets passes for us.   NAMM stands for the National Association of Music Merchants and it puts on a merchandise convention every year in Anaheim.  It’s wild.   The Anaheim Convention Center is huge and every square […]

Happy Holidays from Fox Music 2011!

So, as I’ve posted here and here and here before I pretty much took it upon myself to create an e-card for the music department every year.  Last years was really cool.  I rented a tilt shift lens and Emily painted posters to create a stadium card trick.  It came out really nice and everyone […]

That Time Again

It’s that time again!  The holidays are encroaching!   Today was the Fox Holiday card shoot.   A lot of work and a lot of fun!   Wewere super lucky to get to shoot on the Newman Scoring Stage.  So iconic and historic.  You could feel the history in the room.   It was set up for a session so we […]


Oh man have I been busy.  Seems like months, days, weeks, hours and minutes.  Busy busy, work, busy.   Hopefully it will start to wane after mid-November.  What the…. Mid November?!   Jeez.   It’s cool though.  I am not complaining,  I am just stating a fact.   I like being busy and I like my job so it’s […]

Video: Love Is

I shot this quite a while ago when Eleanor was here for an ASCAP event. I kind of forced some of the shoot but wanted to experiment with shooting video. It’s much different than shooting stills. Especially with the Canon 5D mkii. It’s hard to hold the camera steady if doing handheld, it’s hard to […]

Chocolate Seastorm

Dave, Alanna and I had a band.  Dave on guitar and bg vocals, Alanna on bass, trombone and vocals and me on drums.  We met at a pumkin carving party and played some gigs.   Even better, we recorded a ton of songs and put out  3 albums!   Get them on iTunes.
