Adventure Videos



Your favorite Bearfriends are at it again! Hehe Bearfriends YouTube channel is on the way, but till then, you can enjoy the goodness here. A sweet little cover on our adventure trip to Yosemite and San Fran!

Once upon a time, I had a beautiful little band called Bearfriends going on with my then-soulmate. We started out as just us two for about 5 years or so, and in January or February, recruited some awesome folks to join us. We made a cute little cover in Matthew's musical bedroom (it only took 11 takes LOL).

Took a nice little road trip from LA to Chicago along Route 66! We made sure to pull off the business route and explore the classic route that was left behind by the interstate. All in all, we drove through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Illinois :)

Just a few trips with the drone (helloooo first time pilot! haha I am looking forward to practicing a lot more) and a journey down to San Diego for Matthew's birthday trip. :) Songs: Running In The Wind by Tomas Skyldeberg // All Of Us - Daxten

I need more experiences like this in my life! I love immersive art collectives like Ice Cream Museum--it just really makes you feel like a kid again! I had fun kicking it with fellow photog Vanessa :) Check out our adventure! Remix: It's Strange - Louis the Child ft. K.

Just a little fun adventure vid for my friend's bachelorette party in Santa Barbara! :) Song: Remix of Noche Nada by Givers

Whew! I'm getting caught up slowly but surely on my backlog. Here's an adventure vid dedicated to summer 2017 (yes, yes I know haha): I flew cross-country for the first time to Orlando to work for the amazeeee Hailley Howard, then did a lil mini adventure to the desert with Matthew, went to Universal studios for the first time, then went on a couple of micro adventures - one to the lake in Echo Park and another one taking the Metro out to Culver City just for fun.

Once upon a time, Matthew and I went to Coachella 2017. And it was great. And I've come a looooong way on my adventure vids since the first year I started making 'em (think, 3-5 songs separated across a few vids 'cas they got too long and too big...ha!).

Just a dorky lil' vid of a couple museum visits in the springtime :) Natural History Museum and the California Science Center Song: Wolf by Sylvan Esso

Just some personal adventures through Winter 2017. Includes: NYE! Cirque du Soleil! LACMA for free museum day! The Natural History Museum! And more shenanigans. :) Sound: Mini remix of Some Lovin' by Lenno

Yet another amazing adventure for the books! Matthew and I made the trek up to San Francisco for the holidays. As you can see... Most of my footage is of the drive up (or down), with little going on around town it feels like... ha! Didn't bring my camera along on the 20+ mile run around town we took the first day... Managed to bring it along a little bit the second and third days... Anyway! I love SF, and can't wait to visit again. This trip was a total 180 from the last time we went up there. I highly recommend the Zephyr hotel, suuuupa cute and hipster. Plus, a wax Leo DiCaprio. That is all. :)

Yessiree bob! OMG who even says that anymore? Ok, anyway, here's the Fall Adventures showcase #2! This one features a couple LA adventures with a few of my favorite people. The absolute artistic showcasing perfection that is The Broad is featured, as well as my 29th bday with a couple of the squad up at Angel City Brewing! I had never been before; it's a super cozy venue. :) Song: I did a remix-sorta of Breezeblocks by Alt-J... trippy, ya?

**FAIR WARNING!! Some parts of this adventure vid may be visually violent in the sense of bright, flashing colors and, like, fast movement. So if that gives you the ole jelly legs, proceed cautiously.** Yo! Time for randomized Fall 2017 adventures, part 1. This vid brings ya some goodness around town, the LA County Fair, The Dear Hunter up at The Glasshouse Pomona, and a KBBQ run to DTLA. Yurrrrm. Song: Island by The XX.

Just a handful of adventures from Summer, 2016. We've got a micro 4th of July in Palm Springs adventure, a lifestyle shoot with the gorgeous Laura, a trip to the Hammer Museum with the squad, and a small afternoon on the Santa Monica Pier. Enjoy, friends! Song: Lonely Cities by Tigertown

Alright, friends! It didn't turn out the way I had envisioned whilst running about at Coachella... And I totally thought I could fit the five day adventure into one vid, but... nope. Here's part one of the bearfriends' Coachella 2016 adventure. We were flying solo for this one! I aptly chose Miike Snow's Genghis Khan for this one (we heard him do his thang over the weekend). Keep the ole peepers peeled for part two!
Part two (and a half, really) of the 2016 Coachella adventure. Side note: this is not a Spielberg masterpiece, so don't expect my iPhone footy from far back in the sidelines to be the most amazing thing you've ever seen. It's still fun though! Songs - Let's Run Away by Matt and Kim and Jealousy by Robert DeLong

Yahoo! Here's a (rather long, sorry) video documenting my journey at Field Trip 2016, held in the El Capitan hillsides of Santa Barbara, CA. Blog post is to follow, but essentially Field Trip is a kumbaya of an event, spanning the length of 5-ish days, where photographic and other related creatives coalesce to shoot, learn, network, dance, and broaden their horizons. This year, I concentrated more on participating in photoshoots and taking some video classes. While video has been a big learning curve, it was great learning from some mad geniuses! I hope you take the 8 minutes out of your day and view the full thing. *Side note-- I participated in some boudoir shoots, so there are a few images that are semi NSFW, beware!* Not sure what the quality is going to be, since I had to resize down for Vimeo... At any rate, song credits to Phantogram (Don't Move) and Odesza (Say My Name ft. Zyra) Enjoy!

Alright, alright, alright! Here's a collection of mini adventures from Winter 2015 through Spring 2016. It includes Malibu-- December 2015, Mojave-- April 2016, and a show at Katz Alley in Riverside, featuring Those Folk and Don't Kick Jimmy. Check it out! I'm still learning about video, expanding my skills, and experimenting with new things. Enjoy! Excellent song - Good Mistake by Mr. Little Jeans (while you're at it, check out their cover of Arcade Fire's The Suburbs!! So good!)

I got the opportunity to explore the fabled murder mansion in Los Feliz. It's the setting of a grizzly murder back in the 1950s or '60s, turned abandoned mansion/hoarder case... I had a lot of fun editing this adventure video! This is one of my favorite songs, and I liked being able to play up the weirdness factor. You can check out the full set of photos on my Flickr account, and a summary will be posted on my blog soon!

I fit a couple of adventures into one video-- one spontaneous trip to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway this Fall, and another to Santa Barbara for my birthday! Both locales were beautiful. I had a little trouble with timing on this video, but had fun producing it anyway. In just a few short days, I'll be taking some video classes, so I'm hoping to come back with some epic know-how for better footage! In the meantime, enjoy the view and the music - Shining by Vacationer.

Little snippets of adventure from the summertime, including trips to Malibu for an afternoon, Palm Springs for the 4th of July, San Diego for my summer vacation, and Joshua Tree for a buddy's birthday (starry time-lapse alert!). Pictures from all of the trips can of course be found on my Flickr page at -- just navigate to the albums section and you'll be able to find them. Enjoy! Song - Gunk of Stars by Martin Crane

I got to take a fabulous road trip to Big Sur to celebrate my darling Matthew's birthday. While we were there, we also shot some promo pics for our band, Bearfriends. This is the second video I've completed now, and I'm feeling like I'm getting the hang of the basics. Enjoy! Fabulous music - What So Not (Branchez Remix)

My first video! Hooray! So on my trip to Tahoe this spring, I decided to test out the video function of my new camera. I still have a long way to go in video production, but it's not a bad start. The song is Local Natives'. You can find more pictures from the trip on my Flickr account: Enjoy!
