The New Division - Lost Life

Probably my favorite segment of the music video I directed “Lost Life” by The New Division where a newly sentient android dances her way into oblivion. 🤖

Featuring the amazing Kiersten Dolbec. Costume designed by the incredible Ouget. PA/Grip Leo Martinez.

Had an absolute blast shooting this project for Betamaxx! Check out the official video below.

Music video premier day! I had the pleasure of working with DYNMC Creative on a music video this October. Little did I know how fun the process would be. I learned about the amount of effort it takes to make a great video a reality and met a ton of awesome people during this shoot. Everyone on this team are genuine go-getting hard working people that busted their asses to make this happen. After a lot of hard work, it’s finally here via our friends NewRetroWave 🎉 Happy new year everyone, here is “Never Sleep Again” feat. Vandal Moon | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsE7RFs7bHk

Top 10 Retrowave Music Videos of 2019 - NewRetroWave - Stay Retro! | Live The 80's Dream!

Extremely honored to take the #1 & #2 slot of the Top Ten NewRetroWave Music Videos of 2019! Of course, I couldn't have made it there without the help of the incredible Arkuma Hiyomoto for taking point on the insane visuals for "Left Behind" and Ollie Wride and Michael Oakley for their impeccable music. Also, to my team over at DYNMC Creative for making production a breeze. 🤩

There’s some amazing visual talent in the scene and I’m constantly inspired by all of you guys. Can’t wait to see what 2020 holds for everyone!

Excited to share some more photos from this epic shoot with Michael Oakley soon. 😎

Goodbye 2019... Hello 2020

With a new year and decade fast approaching I feel like it’s the right time to take a moment of reflection and offer some thoughts. I know that for many of you this time of year is incredibly difficult and positivity can be hard to find in the face of a relationship ending, bereavement, loss, loneliness, family arguments as well as financial difficulties. I know because I’ve struggled with each and every one of those at some point. Resolutions are helpful but right here in the now it can be hard to find comfort in the midst of feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, so let me offer some observations that have helped me in the past.

It’s not about where you are. It’s about what direction you’re heading in.

I know in the middle of feeling down that it’s hard to see ANY positivity but the only way out is to be moving in a direction that’s going to slowly pull you out of it. Even when you don’t feel like it. I remember all the times I was down and I wanted someone else to pull me out of it but it was always only me and me alone that could take action to change things. ESPECIALLY when I didn’t feel like doing it. It’s the only way to make progress in whatever you’re struggling with. So keep moving forward.

The previous 10 years saw me go through a long term breakup that was very painful, I lost one of my best friends, my little dog was sick aged only 4 and I had to let him go, I suffered ups and downs of depression and financial struggles here and there, fell in and out of love with life because of all the previous... But then in the midst of the worst crisis I’ve faced in my life I rediscovered my love of writing music again, I met someone new and wonderful who made me believe in love again and life felt great again. Looking ahead to the future I know there will eventually come struggles and things will happen to challenge me that will hurt and cause great pain, but there will always be the return of happiness. That’s the merry go round of life. We all struggle with the things I’ve been through. Each and every one of us. At the time it feels like we are the only person in the world struggling but every single one of us is dealing with something and working through our own sh*t. Try to be understanding and kind to people around you.

There are no justified resentments in life.

With 2020 coming around in less than 24 hours I implore you to take a moment to think about who you want to be moving forward. What would you like your life to be like? What makes you feel excited and passionate? Is there anyone you’ve fallen out with that you regret being at odds with? Make that call and forgive them. There’s no justified resentments in life. (I can already feel some of you saying “but you don’t know what this person did to me!”) Why? Because it’s like being bitten by a snake. The snake bite won’t kill you but the poison coursing through your veins will. In the same way holding onto resentment the anger and negativity coursing through your veins will slowly kill you and affect your relationships around you. You don’t need to let that person back in your life by forgiving them but I do encourage you to let the resentment go for your own sake and inner peace. Not for theirs.

Music updates... I’ve started writing again and I’m looking forward to possibly releasing something in 2020 but I never like to rush things. It’s early stages and I don’t set deadlines but I’m excited about what I’m currently doing after taking some time away to reflect and also look at optimizing/updating my sound palette to be able to create something fresh and new. Just know I’m back at it and very much loving and enjoying what I’m doing which is the most important thing.

Huge thanks to the following people for their invaluable help over the past couple of years in my music. Michael Oakley might be the name on the front cover of my albums but believe me when I say that I wouldn’t be anywhere near as good or where I’m currently at without these people helping me and lending their immense talents to lift what I’m trying to do to a whole different level:

NewRetroWave, Lynda Chatelaine Oakley, Ollie Wride, Brad A. Kinnan Photo + Video, John Kunkel, @Israel Medina, James Meays, Derek Elliotson, James Hein, Philipp Johann D'atri, Rowan J Parker, Pete Maher Mastering, Dana Jean and EVERYONE of you out there for your support.

BEST WISHES FOR 2020 PEOPLE! ❤️

Awesome cover video my man. If the need were to ever arise, I'd hire you to do videography just based on that!
