Some of the first attempts at portraits I ever took, good times. It was painfully cold for the shots at Messiah.

Photo and video shoot for the original "Felly" hoodies, sporting the wave and 2273 box logos on the sleeves. Shot in the backyard of the Ivy.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS & Gelber.

Behind-the-scenes of the official music video for Felly's "Cella," directed by Ray Nicholson and edited by myself. The low light photos came out a bit rough, I admit. We actually got to film on Jack Nicholson's property which was pretty badass, definitely a highlight.
Featuring: Felly, Zac Jones, Gelber, Natalie Jackson, CJ, Danny, Nik & Easway.
November 22 & 23, 2014
Our first venture up to the ski house. The elevation made the turn up real. The snow storm was honestly the worst I've ever attempted to ski in, we were pretty sure death was imminent several times going up the lift. Beautiful drive home though.
Featuring: Lindsay, Marco & Tyler.

Behind-the-scenes of the official music video for Felly's "Top of the Earth," directed by me. This is one of my favorite videos we've ever made. The simplicity stands out, as well as the spontaneity of pulling over randomly on Mulholland and filming a successful music video.
Featuring: Felly & GYYPS

We actually shot the album art for Milk & Sugar during this trip, but I'm not sure where the original file has gone. Shot around my apartment building at the time, the Lorenzo...I don't recommend it.
Featuring: Fel & GYYPS.

Some revolutionary tech at the time. The boy Gabe invited me to come through to shoot a practice delivery of chipotle by a drone. Sadly the drone broke down soon after, and these ideas never came to fruition.

Sunset trip to the beach with some friends sophomore year. Got some awesome sunshot shots.

I shot a video for USC artist Easway on the rooftop of the Lorenzo, which never saw the light of day. I think we were both a bit ambitious with our work at the time, and the attempt to build something around a Weeknd-esque aesthetic was unrealistic, but that's the come up.

We made a little beat-making video to show of Chris & Nik's new spot. Check it out here.

We go to the beach too much. Or I don't go enough anymore.
September 5 - 7, 2016
One of the most exhausting weekends of my life. Kaymann and I actually got evicted from our Air b&b, leaving us stranded with dead cellphones in San Francisco. Fortunately Sarah came to the rescue and let me crash at her spot. I still have nightmares of being in the A Chi O mansion hearing overly excited USC kids blasting the fight song at 5AM. The culture.

These are the earliest photos I can current locate that I attempted to edit in Lightroom. Pretty surreal going back and looking at the progress. It was almost more fun when I didn't know what I was doing?
Featuring: LIndsay & Tyler.
Family trip to Europe + NYC. Might have edited these in my phone or something, not sure how much post work was done.

Whole squad heads to PV for the sunrise before heading home at the end of freshman semester.
Featuring: Felly, Gabe, Riley, Danny, CJ & Tyler.

Hanging out on the gateway rooftop. Relaxing.

Behind-the Scenes of the official music video for Felly's "Low Low," directed by me. This was my first real video production ever, and I probably had more fun making this compared to any video afterwards. We filmed at SC, Manhattan Beach and the "Bike District?" This video is at 300k+ views as of today, which feels surreal.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Eric, Gabe, Riley, Fraher, Easway and Danny.
Tyler and I printed a bunch of 2273Records stickers and stuck 'em everywhere we went. Brought em on the trip to Boston for the show with Madlib. I think if you want some Tyler might still be printing more. Shoutout Tyler's dad.

The whole squad was turning up at Riley's house in Hermosa, when he somehow convinces us to walk to the beach with him. Little did we know "just a few blocks" to Riley means several miles to the rest of us. It was also pretty cold, shoutout Riley for hosting us. We also hit Good Stuff in the morning so it was cool.
Featuring: Tyler, Felly, Riley, Gabe, Danny, Jack, Fraher & List.
March 21, 2014
Felly's first live set, opening for Madlib in Boston at the Middle East. The whole CT squad came out, but the crowd still kind of iced us. I trained up from NYC for the show, we wandered Cambridge for like an hour and almost died of frostbite. The Come As You Are shirts are hilarious.
Fall 2013 - Spring 2014
I was going to create separate albums for these events, but I decided they were more enjoyable to view holistically. We had some lit times in the dorms man, shoutout to the original 2273. Those were the good days. Everyone's got short hair and looks kind of normal. List is always passed out in someone else's room. Hell yeah.
Featuring: GYYPS, Felly, List, Gabe, CJ, Eric & Tyler.
