how we got started

My pal, the very talented Aaron Thomas, has just released his newest album Blues and Greens, with some of my favorite songs on it.  Good stuff, I highly recommend you check it out.

I was lucky enough to be a part of the music video for the single "How We Got Started" (directed by the fabulous Alonso J. Lujan - yeah, I know, I might be biased), both in front of and behind the camera.  Creative consultant and 2nd Assistant Director were two of the hats I got to wear, and then at the party I got to wear this hat as well. 

(Did you spot me?)


  1. Your friend is a very talented man and I genuinely enjoyed the track. I also had a fun time trying to spot you. I kept having to hit the pause button so I could see you properly. How do you get to do such cool things?

    This was made pre-haircut wasn't it? Does your hat still work with the hair? I can only wear hats when I tie my hair up or else it all looks really weird.

    1. Your comment made me smile a sweet smile of happiness. I am (knock on wood) lucky enough to be surrounded by extremely creative people who are open to collaboration and teamwork, and I often get to participate in unexpected ways. It's partly also because I'm going through a "what to do when I grow up... again" phase, and I'm saying yes to every opportunity that comes my way. So I get to AD and write and make puppets and choreograph and design and direct and research, and hopefully one day all this will settle into some sort of reliable free-lance work or even a full-time job of some sorts... We'll see. For now, I'm just devouring every opportunity I get!

      As for the hair, yes, this was pre-haircut. Your comment also made me run to my hat and see if it still works. Which is does, though now I look like Molly Ringwald. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just a new one ;)


Say what?
