New website, new blog, new year!

Uploaded the new website - and started the blog! CHYEA!!

In theory, this blog is a sister-site to, where I can post more detailed updates on what I'm up to professionally. However, I anticipate the "Big Blog" will also serve as a vehicle for more casual blog-fare, like "ranting" and "plugging things my friends are doing." Who knows, who cares...

So, it being the new year, what better time to commit to e-paper the things I want to accomplish in 2010. They say writing down your goals makes them more tangible, more official (more disappointing when you fail?). So here are some things I want to do this year!

1. Get back into writing. Seriously what happened in 09? I feel like I hardly wrote anything! Or maybe its that I hardly finished anything. No matter, this year I'm gonna get back to taking classes, having dedicated writing days, and just being more creative. Which leads me to...

2. Write and direct 3 spec commercials. This is how directors "break in" right? RIGHT? right...

3. Get back into comedy - sketch, shorts, or whatever. 2009 was a spectacularly unfunny year for me. And with such an abundance of funny people in my life (and in LA!), NOT writing and directing idiotic videos would be criminal. So, let's say shoot at least 5 sketches! I can handle that.

4. Direct at least three new music videos. They don't need to be crazy ambitious. I don't need to lose any sleep, weight, or hair over them. They just have to kick a little bit of ass. Punt a small amount of tooshie.

5. Produce a new web series. Something along the lines of GEMS... mostly unscripted, somewhat educational, borderline entertaining...

6. Also, further develop GEMS. Bi-weekly content with 500 youtube subscribers by the years end, and/or find some sort of sponsorship. Ambitious, but necessary.

7. Find another "Jamba Juice." For those of you who don't know, I did a lot of work shooting videos for Jamba in the last few months of 2009. It was a great gig, lots of travel, lots of fun... and I'd love to get another just like it!

8. Get a life. No explanation necessary.

That's enough. If I manage to accomplish all this in 2010, I'll be pretty jazzed. So, here's to a new year and a new decade! Now, let's get to work!
