Volunteer TripSo my little sister is raising funds to go on a volunteer trip to Kenya with her college. While in Kenya, she'll help build schools in the rural country, dig wells, so that the locals have access to water, and planting trees. She'll also be learning about traditional Maasai culture, exploring the local villages, and engaging the students.

This is an amazing opportunity for her, especially since she's going to school to be a teacher. And I would hate for her to miss the opportunity due to not being able to raise funds, so I figured I'd share it my internet family. If you can spare anything and would like to help out, it would be greatly appreciated.

You can find out a bit more and donate here.

Set lifeSo it's been a whirlwind month for me, been crazy busy with projects.

From November 21-Dec. 8, I was the 2nd Assistant Camera on a family feature, called The Adventures of Pepper and Paula, down in the San Antonio area. I joined the project on day 11 of 22, It was a lot of fun and I got to work with some great people.

From Dec. 11- 13 I was the 2nd Assistant Camera for an H.E.B. commercial. We did 3 spots and shot it all in a studio out near Bastrop. It was a very interesting experience since before then 99% of my work had always been on location. I also got to use equipment that I haven't used before, so I was able to expand my working knowledge. Being that it was in a studio it made my job a bit easier as I was able to set up a work station.

Then from Dec. 15-17 I landed my first union show. I was the Camera Utility for this project. The project filmed mostly in Europe and only 3 days here in Austin. This was a huge break for me as I made amazing contacts, got to see first hand how union shows are run, and once again got to learn more and expand my skill set. I feel that its always important to keep learning and that there is always something new for you to learn. Having always worked on lower budget stuff, it was a nice change of pace having everything you could possibly need and a 10-ton camera truck with 7 camera carts.

As much as I love working on films, It'll be nice to slow down and spend some time with @izzi, @dimono, and @shadowsflame when they get down here on friday for the holidays.

9 years, 400 journalsSo today I'm a year shy of being a member of the site for a decade. A lot has happened in my life over the past nine years and I'm thankful that the RT community has been a constant. Recently I moved to Austin, the main reason was to work in the film industry, but being closer to community members is an added bonus.

Here's to 9 more years
