MTV | Ex On The Beach

What if you thought you were finding love in paradise…but YOUR EX JUST SHOWED UP?

Platinum rapper and actor Romeo is set to host the social experiment that features 10 romantically embattled reality stars from “The Bachelorette,” “Big Brother,” “Bachelor in Paradise,” “Vanderpump Rules,” “Are You The One?” and “Bad Girls Club” alongside everyday singles who show up for what they think is a run-of-the-mill love and dating show in paradise, only to be completely blindsided by their exes (in some cases multiple) face-to-face. A complicated web of hookups, deceit, revenge and drama unfolds against the sultry backdrop as couples decide if their love can be reignited, or if the flame of romance is gone for good.

Stand back and take it in. The BMW X5 is the epitome of escapism, ready to hit the road at a moment’s notice. With a quartet of powerful engines to choose from, a spacious interior, and unmistakably adventurous BMW style, this Sports Activity Vehicle® is your ticket to drive anywhere you want to explore.

This was probably thee most luxurious and top secret productions I have ever been on. It was a 7-day intensive BMW commercial shoot with months and months and months of preparation. Everyone played a crucial role. Locking down locations, keeping the picture vehicle completely out of sight and capturing the highest quality of motion pictures. Strong work team, till next time.

Special thanks to Connie Alicino and Austin Everette for the long hours and handling all production logistics, and to Greer Chaldekas for your hard work and helping me run a tight locations team.

Patagonia x Deep Water Surf | Hawaii Island

When you've got a solid crew to surf with, the shorter trips can be just as fun as chasing swell halfway around the world. In the latest episode of Deep Water Surf, Oahu big wave surfer Kohl Christensen and Brazilian pro surfer Danilo Couto link up with my mates Robert Patterson and Mikey O'Shaughnessy for a few sessions in rural Hawaii. It doesn't take long to see that the Big Island boys have the good life pretty well dialed in.

Immersed | Bodies of Water

Over the next year I will be collaborating with fine artist, Kristie Kosmides, on a project that explores connections between humanity and the ocean through figurative works in paint and photography. Our purpose is to express the importance of our relationship with the ocean and humankind in hopes to bring awareness to conservation and care for both.

Immersed - To plunge into or place under a liquid. To Involve deeply; absorb.

The Can If Can Jam Too!!

The Can If Can Jam (CICJ) is a concert, fundraiser and food drive for the Hawaii Food Basket and Hilo Skateplaza Coalition. Fellow musician, Scott Wagner, and I hosted the very first CICJ back in 2010 at the Hilo Bandstand. Six years later and here were are with more than double the amount of support and another chance to celebrate as we give back to our beloved community.

On Saturday, February 27th, at the Hilo Town Tavern, we were able to collect 186 pounds of food that was gratefully donated to the Hawaii Food Basket, helping to feed families in the Hawaii County. We were also fortunate enough to raise a grand total of $562.00 that will be used towards the Hilo Skateplaza.  

Mahalo to all of our sponsors and to everyone who helped and participated in this years event :)

NAK House | Hilton Waikoloa Village

The incredibly talented Wilfredo Garcia, Ricky Lesser and Zack Gemmell of NAK House teams up with the Hilton Waikoloa Resort to produce a compelling new promotional video for the newly renovated MAKAI luxury suites.

Saucony | The Running Astronomer

As part of our “Seeker Series,” we recently traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii to film Michelle Collins, “The Running Astronomer.” A Hubble Fellow at Yale University, Michelle spends her days studying the origins of the cosmos. Running is big part of her daily routine; Michelle not only loves the sport, but also utilizes the time while running to come at her work from a different perspective, think more clearly and maybe even have an “aha” moment or two.

Mitsubishi 4x4 | Adventure Hawaii with Carlos Burle

Brazilian action sports photographer, Alexadre Socci, invited me to Oahu's North Shore to help produce a short film about a family who won a trip to Hawaii with Mitsubishi 4x4 and Brazilian big wave surfer, Carlos Burle. It was an action filled week with good friends, great food and tow-in surfing at some of Hawaii's top outer reef breaks. It's jobs like these that keep me going. Mahalo Ale!

VOLCOM | Pufferfish Surf Series - Pohoiki 2011

Every year the Volcom Pufferfish Surf Series Big Island event goes off and I'm there to capture it all on camera! The forecast was looking pretty grim for Banyans so we were forced to move the contest to the beautiful and consistent Pohoiki Beach Park, on the East coast of the island. The word spread quickly, and Saturday morning was packed. The waves were a rippable 2-3 feet and despite the morning glare and downpours... the contest was on!
