London Surf Film Festival

I’m honored to announce that Party Mix has been selected to show at the London Surf Film Festival on Friday, November 1st, paired up with Taylor Steele’s “This Time Tomorrow”.  So stoked!  If you’re in London please check it out!



Board Shorts Recap

The Board Shorts Film Festival last weekend (yah I’m a bit late in updating here, haha) was a blast.  It was Jenna’s birthday too, so there was a bit of extra fun involved.  The event was packed out.  Apparently it sold out two days beforehand, and there was a wait list of over 100 people.  Not bad at all, gotta hand it to Michelle and Liz for promoting the event so well.

I was really stoked to see a New York film in the festival this year.  That, along with Chris Grant’s little bio pic on Danielle Burt were my two favorites of the bunch.

After the show as we were getting ready to leave, I saw Linda Benson outside.  She gave me some really nice compliments on my work, and I was so humbled and stoked.  She’s not one to throw around false praise.  Plus, she is a legend!!  So rad.

Party Mix was also selected to show in the San Diego Surf Film Festival in May!

Thanks to everyone for the support, and look for Party Mix to make the rounds on the internet very soon.

Party Mix


I’m stoked to have a short film in the Board Shorts Film Festival again this year, held on March 9 at Bird’s Surf Shed.  Come check it out!

The title is “Party Mix”.  I really like this one – it’s a bunch of footage I’ve taken over the summer and into this year.  I haven’t been shooting as much so it’s not as long as By The Way, but it still weighs in at about 12 and a half minutes.  I just had fun with this one.  It’s in three sections – summer surf footage, Canada road trip B roll, and the last section is “long story short” which has already been out.

You do need to get tickets, and last year it did sell out.
