3rd Degree Black Belt Test. Can't believe this was a year ago already. Made time to come back one more time to tackle another giant. I never want to ask "What If?" Develop the habits of people that want to accomplish their goals relentlessly, to succeed in your craft. Develop habits of those that don't, to continue wondering what you could truly achieve in your lifetime. We don't live forever. #TickTock
Sideshow Bob! Cold and rainy. Perfect day at Universal Studios for no wait times and riding every ride! #universalstudios
Divorce the concept of perfection and being ready, and embrace the reality of what you truly have, and where you are.
Always appreciate recognition for projects in all forms. This project represents breaking all of the conventional "rules" of creating a film. I never understood why some artists need an over abundance of toys and money to complete a project. Just hunt down a motivated team and go. There's no time to waste. We don't live forever. Make it work.
PARTY HYPE available on AMAZON PRIME.
This, my first feature, was a loose and fun re-telling of experiences in my early 20's. A good test of what we're capable of accomplishing. But best believe I'm cooking up something new with a darker and more serious tone. Can't wait to finish writing my next project. Feels like I'm sitting on a gold mine with this next one in my pocket. #dreams
Universal Studios Hollywood. Come see the Special Effects Show! And bring me some Thanksgiving food. 🦃 Or tacos 🌮. I wouldn't be mad if you showed up with tacos....or fries 🍟. #hungry

Getting that itch to create again. Next year I want to assemble a team built out of discipline, come back to Dallas for a few weeks, and shoot our second feature. No egos, just hardwork.10+ awards 20+ selections in the U.S. and Internationally for our projects overall.
Our last project, first feature film, took us to Amazon Prime. I can't imagine what's coming next. It kills me to see the talented artists that stopped creating. I get that extra motivation seeing you guys work, but i have to keep going the distance. I'd go crazy if I didn't. Just keep writing. Just keep writing. #Create
Making a living in Cali performing stunts and live performance fights. I'm loving it, but I'm also missing the real contact. Not trophies or shiny ribbons. Just the love of fighting and taking your day out on each other. Trading blows and figuring out each other's strategies. Full contact chess. Here's to good times on the mat/concrete, the ones I can post, and the ones I can't. #fight

Putting on some size. Feels great! Nothing beats getting my hands dirty and doing the work. Not concerned with "right" or "wrong". Only concerned with right now. Make it happen. Theories are fleeting. Actions are undefeated. Time waits for no one. #2018
PARTY HYPE music! Shoutout to the artists that provided music for the film and set the tone and mood for that crazy world. From the bass bumping wild nights downtown, to the calming ambience during hungover editing, and even the dark synthesizer sounds when it all becomes monotonous. I was super proud how the music turned out.

I usually blow past milestones and focus on what's next. So I'm doing my best to appreciate the process and the journey. We've come a long way from running around the neighbourhood with camcorders and getting the entire police dept called on us. 😂
This was pulled off with extremely minimal backing. I can't imagine what we could do with a true budget, a bigger team spreading the workload, adding their creative touch and expertise.
Who's going to help us create?
PARTY HYPE is on AMAZON PRIME. Available in US and the UK!
My first feature film. Produced, Written, and Directed. We don't wait by the phone. We threw everything we had, at the time, into making this project. It was time to upgrade and stop running in place. Super proud of this project, and it opens the door for so many possibilities and ideas. Please go watch and support!

There's no weak artist. I envy the professional athlete's schedule. They know exactly when their next game is, who they're up against, and what they need to prepare for. In the entertainment business, we have to "stay ready" on all fronts, with no promise that there will be a next game, that we truly value, to play in. There's no weak artist. #StayReady
