Here are some of my favorites images from a recent trip to California last week. It's always great to come back and visit some of the spots I used to frequent growing up.

Thank you, Los Angeles and the Marina del Rey Film Festival. That was an incredibly special and unforgettable experience sharing my film, Maddie, with you on the big screen. A big thank you to everyone that came out and supported our film. I'm forever grateful and look forward to doing it again soon!

I'm so excited for the LA premiere of my film Maddie next week at the Marina del Rey Film Festival. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this film and many of you know that this is a very important, personal story that is near and dear to my heart. Please come out and support our talented cast and crew. We look forward to sharing it on the big screen out west and hope to see you there.

\ HOME \ 
 These are the colors of my youth  Shared with friends and lovers  They draw me back here  Where nostalgia finds me  And I learn to love more each time  This is where I discovered adventure  Uncovered hope  Dared to dream  And found my courage  Where my soul longed for the universe   Home is not where you grew up  But where you grow to find yourself

These are the colors of my youth
Shared with friends and lovers
They draw me back here
Where nostalgia finds me
And I learn to love more each time
This is where I discovered adventure
Uncovered hope
Dared to dream
And found my courage
Where my soul longed for the universe
Home is not where you grew up
But where you grow to find yourself

This is Greg, who used to be my boss. Almost 5 years ago, I filmed myself tendering my resignation to Greg in a conference room, and here we are stand up paddling nearly 5 miles around Dana Point, my old stomping ground. The water is freakishly warm, and we’re pretty happy to say the least.
