The Modern Honolulu is by far one of my favorite resorts. This place was a dream and while I was out in Hawaii last month I shot this short film in the suite featuring RVCA. This 2 piece knit set was the coziest little number to lounge around in.



Back in October I filmed the runway shows for LA Fashion Council.

Local Los Angeles based designers showed their Spring/Summer 2015 collections a few months ago. Here's a little taste of the action with behind-the-scenes shots, along with the glamorous runway shows.

A lot goes into not only putting together a collection but also organizing a runway show. So much time, effort and energy put into what becomes a mere 8 minute long presentation. As a designer myself, I know this type of feeling - it's excitement, anxiousness and a sense of accomplishment all rolled up into one. Being on the other side and filming such a day filled with anticipation is pretty awesome. I like using what I know and understand from the designer perspective and applying it to a video that relays that.



I got a sneaky peek of what Billabong has in store for Summer.

Gorgeous prints and colors on all types of amazing bikini's and apparel were displayed beautifully at the Mondrian on Sunset. As I scoured the goods I already had vacation on my mind and both combined put me into full Summer mode. I've been really into the idea of rocking a crochet bikini this season and Billabong has the perfect black and white one that I'm eyeing. I can't wait for the warmer days to be consistent and the longer sunlight hours to continue.



In case you were wondering what I was filming out in Hawaii a couple weeks ago, here it is.

A lot of projects went down while I was out there, but the main focus of the trip was to film the happenings of Pow! Wow! Hawaii. Knockaround sunglasses is a sponsor for the week long event and so we put together this recap vid for them. It was great working with the guys at Knockaround on this.

Being that this was my second time back at Pow! Wow! I was even more excited knowing what I was in for. The culture of the whole thing is really amazing and pretty much unlike anything else. There's a real sense of camaraderie, not to mention a ton of incredibly talented/creative people.

To witness all of the artists in action is an awesome experience but if I had to pick a couple favorites it'd be Kevin Lyons and James Jean.

Oh, hey it's March. To me it means that Spring is right around the corner.

Anyway, as promised, here are the snapshots from my iphone capturing the last month. I feel like the majority of my February was spent in Hawaii - I'm still missing it.
