WOW. So cool to see this project coming to life. Two years ago I was in a class at Art Center which was partnered with L.A. Unified School District, and the purpose of the class was to create an anti-gun campaign to actually be used in the classrooms of L.A. middle schools and hopefully go national. In the beginning of the class, we researched for 4 weeks or so and every student had to pitch 3 ideas to the classroom to figure out which ideas would be produced. We then pitched the produced concepts to the school district, where they will chose one of the final 3 projects. My idea pitched in the class made it into production then was the final idea chosen and is now an actual campaign. We had a great team that brought the project to life. It was so nice to work with a great film student Thomas Banuelos, photographer Rhombie Sandoval and graphic designer Alex Chang. Such a great experience. I wish Art Center kept us in the loop!! They ended up hiring a designer to see the project out for the classroom materials (Maria Moon.) We made the video, concept, posters, photographs, cardboard cut outs. I wish they gave us more credit.

New Project !

Here’s a preview for a new project with a new friend, Rishi Kumar, from my hometown of Diamond Bar. He’s a sustainable suburban farmer/educator who’s turned every usable foot of yard-space at his suburban home into food growing space, where they produce food year round. Rishi has also been working with the nearby Pomona Unified School District where he’s helping to build gardens at some of the schools and always working on grant proposals for more. 

Here’s a few photos from his home and two garden work days at the local elementary schools.

Top of the Mountain, Aspen  2013
In my holiday boredom I’m finally getting around to finalizing a bunch of scans from this past year.  Here’s a fairly recent one from Aspen.  Although I’ve never skied or snowboarded once in my life, when I was in Aspen for a couple days I bought a lift ticket so I could go up to the top, take some pictures, and come back down.  This picture was taken just outside of the restaurant up there, The Sundeck, around 10 or 11 in the morning.  

Daaaaang. So nice!
