Maniac In Palo Alto photobook now available

Maniac In Palo Alto is a photobook with a collection of images taken in Palo Alto. I played the part of “The Maniac” in a short film. While on the set I took a lot of photos, the film was shot at an artists residence in Palo Alto, CA. There was so much that I learned about displaying your collections, this artists had an eclectic mix of items ranging from succulents, crosses, antique tools, and various other items.

Most of us artists have varied collections which inspire us. Sometimes it can get a little overwhelming with the amount of junk we have in our studios, garage, or living room. We might even just get to the point where we wonder what we will do with it all. This residence gave me various examples, i recorded it for ideas, and inspiration for what to look forward to after decades of hoarding… yes come on admit we hoard not collect.

You can buy it from my shop on Etsy lagunacave.etsy.com

Pictured below is the first customer of the book, debuted at a zine fest

My photography now at Cafecito Organico

My favorite coffee shop in Orange County now has two of my photos. Go visit them when you want coffee. I love their Iced Coffee. They have plenty of nice areas to chill nearby as they are inside The Lab Antimall in Costa Mesa, CA.

The photos here are part of my collection “Strange Music, Strange Thoughts” which is about two things that inspire me; music and coffee. The shot of the coffee was taken in the Summer of 2015 at Cafecito Organico in Costa Mesa. The shot on the right was taken at a record shop in Santa Barbara in the summer of 2014. I was there to watch Bad Suns in concert
