I got the chance to sport this fashionable Godzilla suit made by Legacy Effects… I Love some good monster comedy… check it out as I breathe fire, destroy buildings, explore fight coreography, and sweat my buns off! The Nerdist was fun! …





Well, the VOLTO! “Tocino” video made it to Mtv.com … were like sell outs… (actually we are very happy it is getting so much exposure!)



2013 was a strong year for me creatively and professionally. Amongst all the projects and opportunities there is one that I am most proud of, One that used all the skills I have acquired, One that is probably my greatest collaboration.

The official music video for VOLTO!”s ‘ song “TOCINO”.

I co wrote, co produced, and co directed with one of my best friends Tas Limur. Tocino stars Jesse Gee and the Drummer Danny Carey makes a great cameo. Together, with an army of our professional friends  from the UNNATURAL ALLIANCE helping us, we delivered a video that the band loved and the fans… well the fans aren’t really sure what to think, but they are still watching

Love to love you baby

Did some makeup/ bodypaint and other assorted art for this Donna Summer remix video… it was cool because i got to play art producer for a second by bringing on makeup guru Cici Carla Andersen and super talented Chanon Noel,  who starred in the VOLTO!  video I co-directed with Tas Limur. Remo Camerota did a great job Directing and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

“After much excitement the Donna Summer Video is finally Live and direct and it is Spectacular!!!
It will be Premiered on Entertainment Tonight – ET! Tonight at 7.30pm with an interview with Donnas husband – Bruce.
It is also live on VEVO and various other outlets and its starting to get some great press.”

Whale puppet timelapse

Here is a cool time lapse Legacy Effects made of a life size whale puppet. There were some long hours spent on this one!

Captain America the winter soldier

Here’s a new trailer for Captain America 2. I worked on 3 different characters in this film at Legacy Effects during 2013.

Robocop reboot

As a fan of the original, I have to say that this Robocop is looking very promising! I was brought into the fabrication and paint dept. at Legacy Effects to help out on the build of the Robocop suit. I will have to catch this one in the theatre.

Cleatus the Robot

Do you like robots? Then take a look at this behind the scenes video from Legacy Effects. Oh yea, and you can also see me modeling the suit and acting goofy with my coworkers, all while wearing a spandex suit! Fantastic!!!

Iron Man 3

Brought my kids to see IRON MAN 3. They loved it, of course. Shout out to all the Legacy effects artists for building all the great armored suits. I was on the fabrication team for the Mark 42 and Iron Patriot characters. I also got a sweet little stand in gig for the Iron Man character in a couple stunts scenes. (although they were cut from the film)



I updated my WORK HISTORY with thumbnails of promotional art released for some films that I have had he opportunity to work on at some amazing studios I had admired as a child. They are all credited in my resume. And here is my IMDB page… http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3636714/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
