In My Bag

Came across this photo today I had forgotten about. It was taken in Phu Quoc, Vietnam in October of 2009.

Best of 2010: Travel

The memories I have made this year while traveling are without a question some of the best of my life. I spent a lot of this year in a city I never thought I would even visit, and learned that two weeks in South America isn’t nearly enough time to see even one country. From 5am parties in LA to river boating in the rain forest this was a good year in travel.

Best of 2010 - Music

For me 2010 was a year of listening to mostly sun-soaked, fuzzy electronic beats that make you crave bathing suits and warm summer nights. This was of course the big new genre of the year known as “Chillwave”. Not surprisingly 99% of the music I enjoyed this year was electronic. Including a lot of electro-pop, upbeat danceable stuff, IDM and genre-bending artists. Choosing only albums wouldn’t be fair as many of my favorite songs this year weren’t relased on albums. So I am listing both my favorite albums of the year and favorite songs.

bestof10

2010 is coming to an end. Not that it was a bad year, but it did have its ups and downs. I shared a large part of it with my favorite person in the world and had some amazing experiences with her that I will never forget. I also had some great times with friends and family, visited some incredible places, worked with some awesome people and learned some very important lessons. It makes me sad looking back at this year and thinking these times are over, but I will keep these memories with me always and look at 2011 as a new chapter in my life.

In the next week or so I will be posting my thoughts and memories of 2010 including travel, music, food and more. Stay tuned.

Yaya in the Clouds

I got a bunch more film developed from my trip to Peru along with one random roll from about a year ago. I am pretty happy with most of them. View them all here.

A friend of mine, Patrick Wack, was commissioned by French production company, Wemotion, to shoot the whole series in Shanghai. This is a beautiful portrayal of nightlife in Shanghai. It really makes me miss it. Nice work Patrick.

Peru Video Footage

I put together some clips from my trip to Peru last month. Excuse the shaky footage, it was all shot on a Flip Mino.

Time Spent With Contrails - Wallpaper Collection

Time Spent With Contrails

Time Spent With Contrails is a collection of wallpapers compiled of photographs shot by yours truly. They were taken and collected over the period of a several years and thousands of miles. From Los Angeles to Hong Kong, from Vietnam to San Francisco these photographs were all taken on 120 film and left untouched by Photoshop. The photos are now being offered as a collection of fifteen wallpapers that includes several sizes for different screen resolutions, iPhone and iPad. Every photo in this collection was shot on 120 film with either a Holga 120 CFN, or a Diana with a 38mm Super Wide lens. No editing software was used to color-correct or touch up the photos in any way.

Kewpee

Earlier this month I was in Lima, Peru… tomorrow I am going to Lima, Ohio. I will be leaving Cleveland heading back to Salt Lake City this Tuesday, and before I left I wanted to check out small town Ohio. We found this small town called Lima that sounds pretty strange and unique. Apparently there is a Kewpee burger chain and the flagship store is in Lima (if you don’t know Kewpee click here, or here). Anyway, should be interesting.

Peru Trip Wrap-Up

DSC06332

I am back in the country after a two week adventure in Peru and things are finally calming down. It was a tiring trip with lots and lots of traveling via plane, train, bus, taxi and boat. That being said I saw some of the most beautiful countryside and landscapes I have ever seen. Peru Is a beautiful country and two weeks was not even enough to barely scratch the surface. We were able to visit Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu and an area of the Amazon called Manu. It was my first time to South America, but I can be sure it won’t be my last.

Check out a bunch of photos from the trip

Tomorrow Yaya and I have a long day of travel. We are headed to Peru for a couple weeks for a bit of a Summer journey before she has to go back to school. We have a pretty loosely planned itinerary, but at the moment the plan is to head to Lima for a couple days… then on to Cusco to see Machu Picchu… and then to the Amazon for some jungle adventures and to hopefully avoid any run-ins with big ass bugs, snakes or crocodiles.

I will be leaving my laptop at home, but should have access to internet occasionally to post photos and update on the happenings. Though I am looking forward to being ‘unplugged’ for a while.

On the Road Again

Earlier this week I left Salt Lake City again and headed back to Cleveland to stay with my girlfriend who has one more semester of school left here. This is my second trip to the now Lebronless Cleveland. I am rather impartial to the city, but I must say there are some good eats here. The first thing we did upon my arrival is head directly from the airport to Happy Dog. Damn good stuff.

Last night we went to see Delorean and Glasser play at The Grog Shop. The crowd was disappointingly sparse, but the show was as good as I had hoped it would be.

Later this month Yaya and I will be headed to Peru for a couple weeks. It will be my first time to South America and I am really excited for the food, Machu Picchu and a little jaunt in the Amazon for a few days. Just crossing my fingers I don’t get Malaria or bitten by one of these.

That Time Again

Packed Bags

I can’t really count the amount of times in the past few years I have packed my bags and moved to a city for an undetermined amount of time, but I am doing it again. The time to leave China has come, and although the past 10 or so months have been really good here I am glad to be going back to the States. This has been my fifth time to China, and third time living here. I have been bouncing around for the past few years and I feel it’s time to grow some roots. Now only if I could decide which city that should be. One thing I do know is that it will be in America. Home sweet home.

Best Trips - 2009

I traveled more this year than any other, and I hope this trend continues throughout my life. The people you meet and the experiences you have while traveling are invaluable. From being attacked by monkeys in Vietnam to DJing in Tokyo I had some pretty interesting travel experiences in 2009… here are my favorite.
