I’m not sure why but for the most part of my daily errands I carry my camera or I phone in the ready position and ready to capture anything that might catch my eye. Below are a series of snapshots from Dallas, Watts, Venice and various dj gigs around town. All shots caught on my I phone 6 Plus or Nikon D90.
A lot has changed since I started this blog. I was much more active but with dj gigs and shooting dates with Crate Diggers/Live Alive on FUSE, my time is very much limited. Yet I still love sharing my adventures with you. I always make it a point to carry a camera or keep my I phone close for these snapshots.

The past few week’s have been a cooler coaster. Getting re tweeted and grammes by Rosario Dawson was kind of cool but attending Manifest Justice and hearing Trayvon Martin’s mother speak was tough. Also tough was the vigil for Brendon Glenn who was shot and killed by LAPD. Following all this was our KCRW Pledge drive and hanging out with mother was kind of cool. Hope you dig!

It’s been a crazy few weeks planning the Kamasi podcast, kicking off the KCRW Pledge drive, etc etc. But here’s a glimpse of what my life looks like through the eyes of.. my I phone!
Here are some random snapshots around Venice, The Alabama Shakes Apogee session and late night taco run somewhere off Sunset and Alvarado around 2 am.
Here are a few of the snapshots I took with my phone from my recent Toronto trip as well as some local shots around LA and in some hiking areas. Follow me on Instagram for real time snapshots of my adventures.
Behold shots that were taken this past week across LA, my home, my love and my center! All shots taken with my I Phone 6 Plus. To keep up with the adventure in real time follow me on Instagram!

All shots taken with the I Phone 6+ or Nikon D90 around Venice Beach or Highland Park.
Last week’s snapshots are just about all over. Took some great walks along the boardwalk in Venice before the rain and managed to get some cool arial shots over the desert. Some shot with the 6 plus and a few w/ the Nikon D90. Hope you dig! Ps! Can you spot Tony Hawk somewhere tucked away in these pics?
Vegas, K Town, Dog Parks and I Phone. Hope you enjoy!
Here are this week’s snapshots from last week’s adventures. From dog walks to sleepless nights at airports, the I Phone 6+ and Nikon were in hand do document. Make sure to follow me on Instagram for all the visuals. Hope you dig these!
The adventures never stop as witnessed on my instagram account (see for yourself). This seems to be the most ambitious and adventurous time in my life and Im grateful to utilize technology to help me capture it. Hope you dig!
Follow my adventures daily (or hourly in some cases) on my instagram account. From airports to nightlife and simple walks with the dog, you really never know what you might come across (as displayed below). I also house some of the content on my Ello page as well. And if snapshots are not your thing, no worries, you can catch me dropping sounds tonight (Monday) on 89.9 FM in LA. That’s all. Have a great day! A few of these shots were snapped by Holly Port but 90% of what you see is from my I phone.
Every Tuesday I like to spend some time on the computer and post up my KCRW playlist and then walk on over and grab coffee. So I head over to Menotti’s and grab an almond latte. Walking over there is always an adventure along the Venice Boardwalk. I get inspired by all those strangers who travel miles and miles to walk along the path that most locals take for granted. Anyhoo, today I broke out the iPhone and snapped some shots. Totally random!
All shot on my incredible and fun I Phone. Anyone else trying to wait in line for the 6? If you are in Las Vegas this Friday come hang with me as I attempt to wait for it’s release early in the morning. Come bring some coffee? A McMuffin? Some OJ? Also follow me on Instragram!
All shots taken w/ the my I Phone and uploaded to my instagram. Follow me!
If you follow me on Instagram odds are you know how much of an oddball and weirdo I am. It’s the place where I sometimes channel my inner 13 year old ands make fun little clips or catch life’s randomness with an I Phone. The past 6 months have been personally challenging, crazy, adventurous and amazing all in one for me. These are some of my favorites (some made instagram and some didn’t). I encourage you to document all that surrounds you, all that inspires you and all that challenges you. Hope you dig! And follow me on Instagram!
Was today in LA not just the coolest day ever? Made a couple stops around Abbot Kinney, Kreation, TOMS and around the back streets of Venice. Saw some cool police activity too. Hope you dig these snapshots.
Big thanks to Sole Bicycles in Venice for the new ride! The El Tigre is the perfect ride to help me get around Venice easily especially during those crazy holidays when the streets seem to be flooded with tourists. Today I managed to break out the camera and take some snapshots along a ride to the pier. What I love about these guys is that they are more than happy to help and answer questions regarding their product. I love my bike and the ability to move around very easily on it. Check out their cool bikes and fixtape series here.
Took Smedley to Grand Park in DTLA and did some photosnapping at the dog park. The city began to grow busy with the Grammys so we headed back to Venice for another walk. It was a super crazy week in LA at the residencies so it was nice to take the day off and explore with the pup.
Hey! New week and new list of thing’s I’m digging. Volume 3. Every morning I wake up and check out blogs and find interesting things that I love sharing. So this is my wrap up. Ps! Did you listen to last night’s radio show? Did you peep the podcast with this week’s guests? Have a great evening!
New Disclosure production working with NYC’s Bishop Nehru! Nice to hear Disclosure work in a slower bpm format on this. Looking forward to hearing more of this! I’m on track 3 of his Nehruvia mix tape and pretty solid. Download more of Bishop’s work.
Damon Albarn returns with this great track and video for his solo debut release. All these years with Blur, Gorillaz and various projects you would have thought he might have had something out. I’m digging this cut! The utilization of keys and strings are nice!
I’m not sure what’s going on below but the font’s are on point and perfectly spaced. By no means am I promoting this show. If you go, cool. Let me know how it went but the spacing of the letters are on point!
Big thanks to Nikki Jean for swinging through the basement this past Monday and hanging. Future guest on the podcast? Hmmmmmmm… Maybe? Peep her new video!
Breakfast at Zelda’s in Venice was cool. Living here 5 years and just got hip to the mini donuts. Super good! If your in the area make sure to stop by and pay them a visit!
Hurry Curry is no joke! Heavy on the tummy even though. I geeked out on the Chicken and Nan. Pretty cool little spot on Venice Blvd. But this shot pretty sums up the vibe. Not exactly sure how tho’.
2013 is gone! I snapped these prior to NYE 2014 and was not sure what to do with em. Hope you dig! From DTLA to Venice.
Shot these snapshots around LA this past Sunday. Random moments and random folks. Hope you dig! All shots taken with the Nikon D90.
All the shots are pretty much self explanatory. Snapshots taken at Venice Beach, Chinatown, Skidrow and DTLA. Met some really cool folks. Peep my instagram for some video which includes one of the gentlemen pictured below hitting some high notes at the bus stop off 5th and Pico. Hope you dig these snapshots!
