Long Time Gone
Still searching while walking the path.

It's been ... a time ... for some time coming.  There's been a storm swirling in the noggin for a while that's stood in the way of progress.

A little bit experiment, a little bit imagination, lots of that's pretty cool

If you're in the mood for some cool photo compositing...

I think "Cyberpunk" is my fave, but "Lady of the Lake" isn't far behind.

Here's looking at you, Blood Moon kid
Nice time lapse of the eclipse for those of us that wouldn't couldn't wake up to see it happen live.

Well we decided to rally and go up and try and catch the Blood Moon the second in a series of four. We ventured out to Antelope Island and found the deepest area we could on the western side of the Island. While everybody else was sleeping and waiting for the Moon to start its' show I was too excited and found myself wandering even further into the hills to try and find an even better spot. I like what I found. The show started around 3am and turned coppery blood color around 4:30 with the peak reaching at 4:55am. 

The Blood Moon as it begins it’s journey towards the horizon. It’s a site to see ! It makes me feel really small. The moon turns bloody red from all the particles of dust and pollutants in our atmosphere. If you were to stand on the moon you would see every sunrise and every sunset all at once. How amazing would that be! One day it would be awesome to take the opposite photo. But NASA needs to hurry up! #xt1   #fujifilmxt1   #love   #bloodmoon   #landscapephotography   #landscape   #hdr   #utahphotography   #utah   #moon   #love

A Walk To Remember
Or is it?

At least I saw no zombies in the woods.

Story
Tagline
I'm just a guy trying to enjoy the details of life.
Introduction
I'm a non-linear video and graphics editor.  I write (actually more type), draw, make short films, and enjoy my casual status as an amateur cellphone photographer.

I am a video and graphics editor by day... an artist all the time.

     Rule 1: Pay attention to the details.

     Rule 2: Be awesome and flawless.

     Rule 3: Bend all other rules as necessary.

     Rule 4: Spelling counts.


I'm a perpetual and relentless thinker and I find that this restless state fuels my inspirations to create art, video, or whatever.

I shoot my short films using my smartphone; I like seeing what can be accomplished using commonly available equipment.

I love knowing stuff: Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Edius, Avid, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe Muse, Lightroom, SketchUp, Cinema 4D, meaning of life

I'm an avid photo app user of Snapseed, Pixlr Express, After Focus, Pics Art and Streamzoo on Android.
Bragging rights
2 wonderful kids, 1 beautiful wife, & I'm pretty proud of my croutons ... damn good croutons.
