Day 58 - New Room
Another day of errands. Hit up a few car dealerships for a possible tour van and then got some stuff at walmart for my new room. It was nice visiting a walmart that you didn’t feel like you were gonna get stabbed at. The rest of the night was spent practicing some new songs and catching up on internet world.
Day 57 - Universal
Met up with Lisa and Paige for some quick lunch and then headed over to a rehearsal space in Dallas. It was fun to get together and play in a live setting for once. Got some Taco bell and worked it off with a good work out at the gym and then ended the night with a midnight swim. Didn’t bring my camera so heres another edit ive been working on.
Day 56 - Happy Birthday
Thanks to all of you who wished me a happy birthday today! Its always such a great feeling to know that people care enough to take time out of their day to say happy bday. I really needed all the love i can get. My day started out in dallas running around doing some errands and when the evening rolled around we hit up bone daddys and had a nice dinner with some old friends. It was so nice to just...
Day 55 - Virgin Air
Caught a morning flight out of Los Angeles to Dallas texas. I never flew with Virgin so i was kinda excited cus i knew they had wifi on board. The flight ended up being ok except for the part that we had to do a emergency fuel landing in OKC because DFW didn’t have working radios when we were about to land. Im used to delays so i just rolled with the punches.
Day 54 - Michelle
Today was a crazy day. Literally ran around all day trying to finish up things before i left for texas. After doing errands and a couple meetings i met up with Michelle for my last shoot while im in LA. Michelle wanted some new promo photos to start up her portfolio. We hit up a rooftop location first and then rushed over to do some other shots. Heres the outcome!
Day 53 - Double Booked
Been super busy this whole week and i happened to have 2 shoots today. Woke up early and headed to old pasadena and did some headshots. Ive never been to this part of Pasadena but i loved it. There was a nice charm to the city. Later in the evening i met up with Delilah for a shoot. I met Delilah earlier this month at a show in silverlake. She wanted to update her portfolio so i was happy to do...
Day 52 - Lauren
Had a early shoot with good better proper finishing up some product shots leftover for there summer/fall line. Then i met up with Lauren (Mary Jane Watson) for our shoot to update her portfolio.

After completely school in Denton, Tx she made her way to Los Angeles along...
Day 51 - Mayrna
I met mayrna about a year ago when i did a shoot for a salon in Pasadena. She found me through old emails and hit me up about a shoot so i was glad to do it for her. Recently graduated she wanted to slowly get back into modeling. After shooting outdoors for a while i couldn’t handle the heat so i decided to do some studio shots. check out the rest of the photos at...
Anonymous asked: as you're going back to Texas, my question is: are you playing music with Luis Dubuc again? :)
Day 50 - Late Shoot
Today was another movie day for me as i didn’t have any plans other than a shoot with my buddy Kian. Kian hired me a while back for a event in hollywood so i was stoked to do the shoot for him. He needed some new photos to update his website and since it was dark outside i decided to use my makeshift studio in my apartment again. This was one of my favorite shots. Im still doing shoots for...
Day 49 - Booking
Spent the whole day trying to book some shoots before i leave on the 26th to Texas. Its a weird feeling knowing im going back to where a lot of things started for me. Im still looking for shoots this whole week so if your in the los angeles area let me know! Also, i will be dallas area so if you live near there, let me know as well!
Day 48 - Headshots?
The weather seems to be cooling down just a bit. I decided to take advantage and skate around town for a bit. Got some lunch and caught up with a friend and then did some swimming when i got back. I’ve decided to do headshots this week for only $25 so if your in LA let me know if your interested!
Day 47 - GBP lookbook
Woke up and got started on this lookbook im doing for a good better proper. We couldn’t find a studio in short notice so i decided to just shoot at my apartment. Took care of some product shots and then all the models showed up. There was over 10 people in my studio apartment, definitely the most people ive ever had over. I can’t post any pics yet so heres what the chaos looked like.
Day 46 - Congress
Woke up early and headed out to my first political rally shoot. It was pretty interesting being around people who are so vital to the city of Los Angeles. Although i don’t consider myself very involved with politics i enjoyed the meeting and learned a few things about immigration laws that i definitely agree with.
Day 45 - Los Verdes golf Club
Shot my 2nd wedding of the year today. I was expecting the worse but the day went by faster than i thought which is always a good thing. We started the day in torrance and then finished out with the ceremony at the los verdes golf club. The weather was perfect! I have over 1800 photos to look through so heres an unedited shot.
Day 44 - Preparation
Spent most of the day watching The Office and getting ready for a wedding shoot tomorrow. Anyone who’s photographed a wedding before knows what its like and how horrible you feel after. I watched a movie called Warrior and i got so hyped up i did a crazy work out and ended my night skating around my neighborhood. Didn’t take any photos so heres a shot from older shoot.
Day 43 - Writing
It feels like its been forever since i wrote a full song. For me its always been a song either writes itself or i scratch the whole thing. Most of my best songs are literally written under 30 mins. I usually will know if a song is good within the first 5 min and if its a good song i wont stop till its done. Today i wrote my first full song in about 3 years, yeah i know…pretty sad. Maybe one...
Day 42 - Long Beach
Decided to take the pup out to the beach since shes been home in the heat for a couple days. Traffic was horrible and we ended up getting there at 6pm but it was still nice enough to go in. The ocean was so polluted with trash though, you can see trash and debris all over the place. Such a sad sight…
Day 41 - Squirrel!
Caught up on a couple movies ive been meaning to watch and spent the day at home today. I was hanging out my balcony and saw this little guy hanging out so i ran back inside and got some peanuts i had and i gave him some dinner. When it came to dinner time for me i decided to cook myself something rather than get fast food like i normally do. Pretty bummed the guys left cus no i have no one to...
Day 40 - Pool
Thought i was gonna spend the day at home but it was the guys last day here in LA so they picked me up and we decided to go swim at our friends apartment in hollywood. On our way there we stopped by fairfax and hit up some stores then got some pizza for everyone. Nice relaxing day by the pool.
Day 39 - Santa Monica Pier
Hung out drumming and playing some guitar at guitar center then we made our way to santa monica. Picked up a friend and skated through 3rd street prominade.

Today was finally beach day! Gathered up the crew and all hit up Venice. Got some pizza and skated for a while and then we all swam a bit.

Day 37 - Griffith Observatory
We all met up and got some food at glendale, then we hit up Americana and the mall to do some window shopping and kill time.

Did some obnoxious things and ended the night at house of blues to see our friend Sara play an acoustic set at Voodoo...

Got some food at 7/11 and headed out to our friends house. Played some tony hawk and people watched from his apartment balcony while the others got some work done on a new song.
Day 35 - Doctor
Started the day at the noho skate park, probably not the best idea considering it was over 100 degrees again and i was wearing ALL black. We couldn’t stand the heat so we hit up burbank mall to cool down for a bit then picked up a few friends over at union station. They wanted to renew there cards so we went over to Venice beach and skated for a couple of hours. After that we hung out in...
Day 34 - Hollywood Blvd
Had a late start but we made our way up to Molly’s place and had a fun jam session/pizza party. We then decided to get out of the house and hit the blvd. Jordan joined us and he fit right in cus he brought a skateboard as well. Definitely always wanted to skate the strip and i recommend that everyone do it once, seriously. Met a lot of interesting people on the way and we were by far the...
Day 33 - Food for thought
Spent the day home for the first time in a while. The day went by faster than i thought. So many things are running through my mind so i needed a break and i got some pasta to eat. The rest of the day was spent watching Conan and editing. Heres a edit for you bastards.

Day 31 - Busking
Almost decided to just stay home today but i knew i would drive myself crazy. So i went and did something i always wanted to do. We went to santa monica pier and played music for people passing by. The best part of this was getting people to smile. Wether or not they gave us change, we saw so many people with a huge grin, and that almost makes everything worth it. After a few songs we realized...
Day 30 - Roman Candles
Depressing doesn’t even come close to describing the day today. All i have is the glimpse of hope in the future.

We realized that we had some bottle rockets and we decided to shoot them off at...

Then we made our way back and picked up a bike and headed to santa monica pier to get some arcade...
