Powwow for Hope (PHOTOS)

I had the honor of attending the 5th Annual Powwow For Hope: "Dancing for Life, Love & Hope" at Fort Snelling in St. Paul, MN, my first experience at an American Indian powwow. I hope to attend more in the future and would encourage everyone to consider attending and learning more about the spirituality of our native brothers and sisters.

I'm extremely excited to share this music video I filmed and edited for Portland-based indie rock band, Amos Val for their single entitled Breath Mantel:

You have to admit it's getting better. All the trees are coming alive and I couldn't be happier. In the midst of all the chaos and distractions in this modern age, there isn'y anything like the undeniably sacred passage from darkness into the light. Thank you spring for reminded us that life is a process of change and renewal.

I recently ventured out west to visit family and friends and to shoot a music video for my brothers band Amos val in SE Portland. I used to only make these kind of vacation videos and I really enjoyed getting back to my roots on many levels. The song - We Need Help by The Album Leaf - has been on my list to use for a video for about 9 years. It just felt right with this one. 

Rock the Garden 2015 - Modest Mouse, Babes in Toyland (PHOTOS)

This year at Rock the Garden at Walker Art Center, Modest Mouse opened their set with my favorite song of theirs - World At Large - and it was one of the most enchanting moments I've ever experienced at a show. I was in the photo pit between the crowd fence and the stage, about 10 feet away from Isaac Brock, the only thing separating him from me was his monitor and mic stand. I'll never forget it! Thank you Minnesota Public Radio for having me once again as a volunteer photographer, this made my summer!
