Create: Road Trip 2021, Episode Five

The people you encounter on the way. So much of this experience is just that. Moments, glancing verbal blows. Making time and slowing down to LISTEN. Writing, taking notes, and recording as much as possible then sharing those items to … Read More

Adventure: Everyday Expedition Episode 5

This series is about you and me. People with jobs who aren’t pros who will probably never stand atop Everest or float the Nile. Everyday people doing everyday things in the outdoors. Trout on the fly. Yes, that was the … Read More

Adventure: Vanlife 6

Okay, better get used to this sort of thing. VanLife films that don’t talk much about the van. But do talk about random things like Mountain Dew and the Blurb bookstore. There will be much VanLife in the coming months, … Read More

BikeLife: BikeLife 14

We often live parallel lives. I know I do. There is the world of my mind and my belief that I am still eighteen years old, and then there is the reality staring back at me. As we get older … Read More

Adventure: VanLife 5

Remember, the van is NOT the thing. The van is the THING that gets you to the THING. This series is a sketch of my life away from the computer. If this film looks and sounds disjointed then you will … Read More

Adventure: VanLife Episode Four

We were on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. Just kidding. That’s a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by the one-and-only Hunter S. Thompson. A literary hero. But I like to … Read More

Adventure: Out on the Fringe

Two days in the field. Felt like I needed to move mountains to get this time but the moment I left the house the rest of my world just faded away. In two days I’ve forgotten passwords, forgotten to-do lists, … Read More

Adventure: Falling Down

As Texas endures the great, white blight we here in New Mexico just shrug. Contrary to popular opinion it actually snows in New Mexico. Yes, we have pointy parts that fly free to the bottom of the clouds. And yes, … Read More

Adventure: Everyday Expedition, Episode 004

Shout out to Kurt for the bumper. Much appreciated. Fifty-two percent of the state of New Mexico is now in what is considered to be “exceptional” drought. I begin to compile footage, stills, and copy in an attempt to tell … Read More

Adventure: The Space Program

Near Diablo. Scouting. Wind picking up. The hike, roughly seven miles, was complete. Washboard road ripping the van apart one click at a time. Heater running full blast. Last sun highlighting dust-filled gusts. One holiday over, one to go. It … Read More

Adventure: VanLife Episode Two

Enough about me. What about you? What do you think about me? Too much me here but simply continuing the great filmmaking experiment. Everything you see and hear was done in less than one day. Would I choose to work … Read More

Create: Everyday Expedition, Episode Two

Full disclosure. Not entirely happy with this but under the current life demand schedule it is what was possible. Now, this doesn’t mean I didn’t mishandle a few things. Creating work like this is often a balance between creating work … Read More

Adventure: Everyday Expedition, Episode One

This is a test. This is only a test, of the emergency broadcast system. So, I’ve had this idea for quite some time. “Everyday Expedition,” those excursions that people like you and I can pull off with a nine-to-five job. … Read More

Adventure: More Field Time

Getting away isn’t easy. And once you are away cutting ties with “home” is even more difficult. Once you spend enough time on the screen it feels like the screen is “normal” life when it is in fact the polar … Read More

Adventure: VanLife Episode 001

There is life before the van and there is life after. I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t drive a van until now but once that realization was made it became apparent this was going to be our vehicle moving … Read More
