A few more words, if you’ve got the time:

The Julian Foundation

I’m currently serving as the Vice President of the Julian Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by a close circle of friends in honor of our late friend Julian Collender. Our mission is to create positive social change by supporting the pursuit of education, artistic endeavors and creative self-expression within the same diverse interests and passions as Julian’s. We focus on the outcasts and misfits, the ones that need a second chance or nice swift kick in the ass.

Long Beach Zine Fest

I was amongst a small group of fellow zinesters and zine enthusiasts who got together in 2015 to organize the Long Beach Zine Fest at the Museum of Latin American Art. On it’s second year, we hosted over 100 zinesters to showcase their work alongside bands and local vendors creating a whole day’s worth of fun for all ages. It has quickly become one of the museum’s largest events, with our most recent fest gathering over 3,500 visitors on the single day. I was responsible for the branding, marketing, and event design.

Freeways Collide

This is the collective studio where I work on selective creative projects with my wife, Sara Todd. With our diverse background in the arts, including shooting photos on both analog and digital for fashion and editorial clients, painting and drawing for fun, and writing for a variety of publications such as Metal Magazine and Space15Twenty, we’ve established a certain repertoire with our work that constantly evolves with our interests and our collaborations.
