smiley9.gif This is the second time I've been the featured user, the first was on Aug. 14, 2009, right before the very first RT Philly, which is the fan event that @jengaship and I created

smiley9.gif Speaking of RT Philly we're holding our event the weekend of Sept. 22 2012. Our event is a little different then the other RT fan event in that we highlight the users of the community. So if you would like to present a topic or peddle your wares, then fill out our Presenter/Vendor form. Or if you just want to attend an awesome weekend in Philly, pick up your tickets today.

smiley9.gif While we're on the topic of events, the next one I'll be at is RvBTO. So hopefully I'll see you there.

smiley9.gif I'm also the official photographer for RvBTO, so I'll be the one snapping the embarrassing facebook photo of you.

smiley9.gif I don't like RFRs and will very rarely accept them, pretty much to the point of never. If you want to be on that friends list, the best way is to meet me in person and leave a good impression, ie don't be a tool

smiley9.gif I'm single ... sup ladies

smiley9.gif I currently work for Temple University, although I'm transitioning into more and more freelance camera work. Mostly assistant camera work, but occasionally camera operating. I've yet to be paid as a director of photography.

smiley9.gif Neil Flynn (The Janitor) is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

smiley9.gif I'll be taking the camera union test at the end of July, if once I pass, then I can work on bigger productions.

smiley9.gif I talk about cameras a lot, just ask @matt

smiley9.gif I shoot on a Canon 7D, with a wide variety of lenses, but my go-to lenses are the 24-70mm f2.8L & 50mm f/1.2L

smiley9.gif I'm always open to give people advice on filmmaking or photography, I find it to be the simplest form of paying it forward.

smiley9.gif My 8th site birthday will be on October 13th. I expect cake.

smiley9.gif Here is my old demo reel (10mo old), I'm in the process of cutting a new one

smiley9.gif DONGS This one is here for Clem

smiley9.gif I keep a marble and onyx chess set on my desk at work. It classes up the place and gives me something to do when I'm bored

smiley9.gif If I ever win the lottery, I'm donating a bunch to Child's Play

smiley9.gif Jamie (from Child's play charity) and I are birthday buddies (June 13th)

smiley9.gif My one cats is colloquially known as Kitler.

smiley9.gif The following are possible names I will name any cat I get from now on: Chairman Meow, Meow Zedong, Meowmar Gaddafi, Fidel CATstro, Meowseph Stalin, Meowbarak, Thanom Kittychorn, Ho Chi Meow, NiKitty Khruschev, Meow Gorbachev

smiley9.gif Want to know something? Just ask. I'll answer them in the next journal.

    You totally should have mentioned that you have a drink named after you.


    I'm jealous just thinking about it.

    On the topic of RT Philly, I don't think I have a ticket yet because I wasn't sure if I could make it up that weekend. Now I just want to make sure I haven't bought one yet so I don't buy another when I already have one. Who should I ask to find out?

    Not sure what to make of it...but I'm kinda impressed you worked the word "colloquially" into a journal.

    I know you're an awesome person, didn't need to see you be FU to figure that out.

    ...but you deserve it anyway! smiley12.gif

    Yay, photos! I can never afford to go to these events, so I always live vicariously through the photos, haha. Happy FU!
