One Epic Eclipse Trip

One Epic Eclipse Trip Heat and lots of hippies. These were my first impressions of Ferne Clyffe park, the location we had elected to drive eight hours to totality. I slept most of the way down, my mom, ever the matriarch, driving our SUV overflowing with people across Southern Michigan and through Indiana. After eight... Continue Reading →


Three Flights, Two Layovers

The wire of the bench pressed into me as I shifted to move my arm draped over my backpack. A British (or Australian, or South African) couple chatted by me. For a second I realized how bummish I looked, and then decided I didn’t care. I was on the first layover of a trip that... Continue Reading →

I Love Lansing Video Film Shoot

Some would say a giant lugnut is not noteworthy. Indeed, my DP dubbed it “incredibly underwhelming”, but it is one of Lansing’s claims to fame. Thus is my challenge. If you google ‘World’s Biggest Lugnut’ Lansing Michigan will pop into your browser, along with a blog post from 2007 and pictures of this national marvel... Continue Reading →

I Love Lansing Film Project

I live in the most perfect place. This is a simple fact. I grew up on a farm, but the city of Lansing was close which gave me the perfect combination of country and city life. Lansing holds a special place in my heart. It is the capital of my beloved Michigan, but is much... Continue Reading →

This weekend, however, I had the privilege of working with a talented crew of people creating beautiful art. Sassy Women is about Callie, a wild young thing with a tongue as sharp...

Film Noir Shoot

My latest project, which I'm very excited about is a short video I am completing for one of my last film classes. My original plan was to film a short in a car, but underestimated the difficulty of doing this without a steady cam. Due to time constraints, I threw together a quick film noir... Continue Reading →

Travel Tips 101

While I have not been traveling for very long (my first time on a jet plane was a year ago), I have traveled very far. Last March I spent over two weeks in Shenzen, China and last summer I spent three months roaming Europe and Britain (spending extensive time in Kosovo and England). I backpacked...

Mural Work in Kosovo

As mentioned before in my post on Workaway, I spent six weeks volunteering at a hostel in Kosovo. I'll post more on the actual city on a later date, but I want to dedicate this post to one of my tasks while I was there - painting a mural on the outdoor bar. Buffalo Backpackers,...
