Sweet baby Iver

On Friday, August 31 at 7:30 pm, we welcomed our 3rd little one into the world, our first born in CA! My wife Riley endured so much through this pregnancy including having to evacuate the area for a week due to wildfires while about 8 months pregant. She is the brightest light in the world and I'm so thankful for her. Our 3 sons are so blessed to have her as their mother. 

We had an amazing experience with the care provided by Mercy Medical Center Redding. Here's a little video I put togeher:

Twin Town Guitars (VIDEO)

I recently shot and edited a 30-second spot for Twin Town Guitars in Minneapolis. I've been a long time fan and customer of theirs and when I was given the assignment to shoot a commercial as part of an application process for a gig out in CA, I immediately thought of Twin Town as my first choice to film for. The owners were gracious and kind enough to let me come in and film and I'm happy with how it turned out!

A Morning Session with Nick Costa (VIDEO)

Nick greeted me early Saturday morning, barefoot and jolly, ready to film a morning session in his brownstone apartment in south St. Paul. “We can film anywhere except that room. I’ve been given orders, can’t film in there”, referring to the closed french doors leading into his (and her) bedroom. “No worries” I reply smiling, knowing my wife would probably echo similar sentiments. 

Costa is a Twin Cities-based guitarist and songwriter for bands such as The Person & The PeopleThe 4onthefloorThe Crash Bandits and Dan Mariska & The Boys Choir. After brewing some strong coffee and plenty of shop-talk about guitars and grocery stores, Nick and I settled into his living room, acoustic in hand, camera in mine, and he began to play some tunes. Here is that morning session with Nick Costa:
