11 Years Later, A Pleasant Surprise
11 years ago my friend Kyle Pahlow and I released our east coast surf film, A Pleasant Surprise, with premieres at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ, a prime time slot in the burgeoning New York Surf Film Festival, and a limited DVD release. Since then it seems most everything has gone online, as […]
Amidst lockdown orders and the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic I found a silent and slow pace of life that was unusual.

Once I opened my eyes the plastic started revealing itself between my toes. It was beautiful and tragic at the same time. Let’s all try to buy […]
Good Morning Internet – Special Edition: Net Neutrality!
Ok…this one is for the internet! The FCC is voting to end net neutrality on Dec. 14th. Congress can still stop the vote, but only if we make them. Go to https://www.battleforthenet.com to #StoptheFCC and defend net neutrality before it’s too late. Then, join me in “breaking the Internet” by adding a new job position […]
