Video I edited for Strife TV with Bboy Fantum! Shot by Michael Reiken (Aristokat Media) at the Youtube Space LA.
Next week, I'll have the honor of teaching as an industry expert at the 3rd Annual CTE Regional Symposium at LA City College. This year's theme, "Your Career I Your Talent I Your Choice," was designed to inform students in a way that moves them into career-oriented action in the creative fields. Super excited to be speaking on a panel again and helping students find ways to work in the creative industry! I'm very passionate about inspiring people to embrace their passions and build a sustainable and fulfilling career out of them - everyone has something to contribute and we all can benefit from each others' skills and knowledge :)

For 6 weeks, I taught a course on how to navigate through the Creative Industry which included how to create an online portfolio, look for jobs, and behave in the workplace. This was done for the ICAP program at LA Mission College with CreatorUp!
Here's a video I directed, co-shot, and edited with Rave Train for Autoerotique + Diplo's song "Waist Time"
This past weekend, I had the honor of teaching a workshop on Influencer Marketing for CreatorUp at USASBE - the biggest global organization for Entrepreneurship Educators.
Here's a video I shot and edited for the EDM Producer ZOLNGR for Rave Train!
Season 3 of Rave Train is finally here! We had a blast filming this season at Thunder Studios and had a stellar cast of Dj's, Producers, Dancers, and Crew. This episode is with Jack Spaidz spinning techno, psy trance, and hard trance. Soul Train with EDM Music - enjoy!
Shot and edited an incredibly fun video for Camille La Vie and boy band Emblem3 in New York!
I've had an incredible year of teaching, instructing, and consulting. From mentoring students at LA Mission College to consulting Ad Agencies for Youtube, I'm grateful to share my experiences and knowledge to those who need it. One of my favorite programs is Youtube's Nextup program in which I was the co-lead TA and mentor. I was once again able to help Youtube creators with 10k subscribers and up how to use basic filmmaking techniques to improve their channels. I've taught and mentored at a total of 3 NextUp programs this year and all of them have been filled with amazing creators that I can now call my friends :)
I'm so grateful to have mentored and taught in Sao Paulo, Brazil for Youtube and CreatorUp's business building workshop to teach Brazilian creators how to create businesses out of their channels. To see creators and experts excited to work together to help build their businesses was absolutely heart-warming and inspirational :)
Was absolutely honored to teach for Google and Youtube's Brand Partner Program in Sweden and Norway through CreatorUp! I spent a week in the Nordic countries to teach Ad Agencies how to work with creators and use Youtube's tools for advertising through the platform.
I was honored to be nominated for 2 videos I shot and edited with my producing partner Desi Javon for the World Choreography Awards this year! We were nominated for the category "Digital Content" for our videos for High Flyer Scooters "Dancing King" and "Date Night"
I had an incredible time teaching 3D Printing at Wildwood School in West Los Angeles for Innovated.LA for Eezitec! Ray and I taught children how to do basic CAD Design and how to use a 3D Printer with other organizations for a day filled with tech workshops.
For 6 weeks, I taught at LA Mission College to a group of students for a course called "Getting a Job in Creative Industries: You, Your Skills, Your Portfolio" which was developed in collaboration between CreatorUp and LACC for I-CAP. I had the pleasure of sharing my experiences and knowledge about my life as a creative in the creative industry to help them launch their artistic careers - another passion of mine that came to fruition this year!
Had another amazing opportunity to be the Social Media expert and consultant at the Youtube and CreatorUp Business Building Workshop at the Youtube Space LA. The workshop helps Youtube channels with 100k+ subscribers create sustainable businesses with their channels - something that I have a big passion for!
I had the pleasure of teaching an online 360 Video Course for Oculus and Digital Promise's VR FOR GOOD program! The online course was used to teach instructors how to create 360 videos with ten rising filmmakers who work with ten nonprofits to tell their stories through VR :) Taught through CreatorUp, the course dived through how to use a 360 camera to how to tell a story through the technology.
Here is the Season 3 Trailer of Rave Train! A webseries I co-created, produce, and direct, this next season will be featured on Apple TV via EDMTV, Revry, LessThan3, and Youtube! Stay tuned :)
I've been shooting and editing a lot of 360/VR Content lately with my Ricoh Theta S, from Breakdancing and Wedding Videos, to Behind the Scenes and Travel Videos. I've also shot on the GoPro Odyssey and will be releasing footage soon. Want a 360/VR Video or need a director/producer with experience? Contact me! I've also been asked to teach an online course on 360/VR Video and am currently consulting companies and individuals on the technology :)
