the duke spirit_roxy_12.30.10_10.jpg

in an effort to focus less on live music and more on portraiture, i promised myself that i would stop all the blogging and live show photos, and concentrate more on intimate photo session with musicians, people, kids, and pets. but without the blog to help me “chronicle” where i’ve been, i am at a loss as to WHERE I HAVE BEEN. i found out the hard way that i actually NEED this space to help me document what i do.

thus, i plan to continue to update this blog for my personal projects – my footprints in the sand, so to speak. it may include music, portraits, life, etc.

and so it unfolds…

the ABOVE photo was from my last live show of 2010 – the duke spirit with crash kings @ the roxy. such a great “last show” of the decade. and i even got to hang in the dj booth. review and gallery on BUZZBANDS.LA and PHOTO LINK!
