This past weekend I was a part of the CONTAIN IT! art show at the Dunedin Fine Art Center and boy, did I have a great time! CONTAIN IT!, art installations made of PODS storage units, were part of a two-day event that also included the Trashy Treasures Art Auction, food trucks, craft beer, and an art supply sale. I got to show off some of my art, met a lot of great artists, and came home with a few trashy treasures of my own. Click the link above and check out the photos I captured as well as Julie G’s fantastic article.

Check out the photos I took here.

B is for Box. J is for Jumbotron.

At Thursday night’s Lightning game vs the Ottawa Senators, the Tampa Bay Lightning Organization honored me and my artwork during the 1st intermission. Back in October I placed fourth out of over 350 artists who submitted artwork in their 2nd Annual Celebration of the Arts competition. The jurors were from The Tampa Museum of Art, The St. Pete Fine Arts Museum, The Dali Museum, The Ringling Museum, and also included the owner’s wife who is a strong supporter of the arts, Mrs. Penny Vinik. I am more than honored to have been presented an award two years in a row!

Almost everything was shut down from Boston to New York during the frozen-fury the Hercules Blizzard blew in. The snow started just before midnight on Wednesday night and ended Friday around noon. Thursday evening Highway 84 was shut down. This major road connects Boston and New York. Friday’s temps hit a low of -8 degrees without the windchill. Brrrrr!

Reflecting on 2013 and remembering everything that made it such a fantastic year! Excited for more traveling, more art, and more new friends in 2014.

Bassnectar NYE 2013 Recap

New Year’s Eve 2013 was one of the most epic New Year’s to date! I rang in 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee at the Bridgestone Arena, documenting Bassnectar’s 360 degree show of pure insanity! Brendan Donohue, Matt Miller, Kelly Hite, Robert Bragdon and Jonathan Gaynes were a tremendous crew to work with. I was so proud to be a part of the Break on a Cloud team and put my time lapse and video skills to the test. Lorin put on one memorable show and I cannot wait until we get to do this all over again!

Music: Bassnectar’s remix of “Rez” by Underworld (as heard at midnight during the NYE 360 degrees set Decemer 31, 2012)

Humungotron + Zamboni + Me = Best Night Ever

Last night was EPIC and one of the best nights of my life! I was honored at the Tampa Bay Lighting game on the largest jumbotron (or as I like to call it, the humungotron) in all of North America for winning 1st place in their inaugural Celebration of the Arts competition. Back in October a reception was held at the Tampa Bay Times Forum for the artists whose work was accepted into the show. The jurors were from the Tampa Museum of Art, the St Pete Fine Arts Museum, the Dali Museum and Mrs. Penny Vinik. Over 300 artists submitted work and 41 artists work are now displayed (and available for purchase) around the suite level at the Forum. Check out the stories and videos from that memorable evening:




Not only was I on the humungotron last night, but I also got to cross something off of my bucket list – riding on a Zamboni at a Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game! Man, was that a blast! While Thunderbug and I couldn’t convince the driver to let us take the Zam for a spin, he drove us around the ice for a night I will never forget. Check out my view:


Having attended the very first Lightning game in October 1992 at the Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds as a kid as well as all of the joy and excitement the team has brought me in the past 20 years, made winning this award that much more of an honor. I was there when Manon Rheaume became the first woman to play in an NHL game, when the team outgrew the Expo Hall and moved to play at the Florida Suncoast Dome, for goaltenders such as Daren Puppa, Nikolai Khabibulin and Johan Holmquist, I’ve watched left-winger Dave Andreychuck, current captain Vinny Lecavalier, veteran Marty St. Louis, and many, many more all make history. I witnessed John Tortorella lead the Bolts to the Stanley Cup (which has now been bumped down to be my second favorite game) and I was even one of many kids to help name Thunderbug. Merging hockey and art couldn’t have been a more organic experience for me and am privileged to have been recognized.

Here are some of the photos I captured on my iPhone at last night’s 5-2 win over the Panthers, as well as a link to my interview shown last night on the HUMUNGOTRON! I must also mention that the Panthers racked up 37 minutes of penalties. Pretty sure that’s the most I’ve ever seen.

Many thanks to the Tampa Bay Lightning for providing me with this opportunity. Scott Audette, thanks for the photos and your support. Kelley Cureton, you’re fantastic at what you do. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done and all of the hospitality at the games. To everyone else, thank you for your continued support. I wouldn’t be here without all of you. GO BOLTS!!
