Failed Actor! Role: Quarterback Punk

This was my intro to the acting world and I nailed it. If I would have stayed on track, I’d probably be on the set of Fast & Furious 6 or something. I’m stoked to be in the video for a song rad enough that Wade Speyer skated to it. If you’re having trouble recognizing me, I’m the quarterback fetus with the giant head.

Hot Shit!,

Who do you think you are!? I am!

I will be quoting Pete Weber today, tomorrow, and everyday there after.

Yes! God damn it, yes!
That is why I did it! I… number 5! Are you kidding me!? That’s right!
Who do you think you are!? I am!
Damn it, right!

Food Fight by Eric McHenry

I’ve been wanting a talented artist to draw me a picture of a pig using a giant piece of bacon to fight a chicken yielding a giant hot wing.  Luckily, Eric McHenry hooked it up.  Can’t wait to frame this original and hang it on the wall.  

Thanks, ttusk.

Skate Mental – Shane O’Neill Commercial

Brad Staba, the stone-cold psychopath behind Skate Mental, forced me to roll up and play Director of Photography for this fucked up Shane O’Neill commercial that played during Street League Finals. It’s probably the best commercial in the planets. Directed by crabsalad.

Best Trip Ever

On the last day of the best trip ever in Oahu, Sarah and I walked down to the sand in front of the Loulu Estate at 8:45am and whipped up this little diddy first try.

Thanks to everyone who made this trip possible. It was a blast from end to end for 1,000 different reasons.

One Day with Brandon Biebel

I’m a huge Brandon Biebel fan. I’m psyched every time I get to film something with him, so I said “hell yeah” when Transworld called. I’d say this is a pretty accurate snapshot of a normal day with Brandon.

Failed Actor! Role: Rollerblader

I had probably the most embarrassing failed actor career possible. Some of the movies and commercials I had to do were pretty embarrassing but this one takes the cake! A rollerblader!? Worst role I could get.

Throughout the audition process everything said “skate” not rollerblade. Even at the audition the director said, “So you can skate right?” It wasn’t until they asked me to bring my rollerblades to a test shoot that we realized the miscommunication. I borrowed a friends that were 6 sizes too small and tried. I sucked. A guy at the advertising agency even said, “This guy can’t rollerblade!” and walked back inside angrily. Icing on the cake? They buzzed my head and I looked like a 14 year old for awhile. I was a 21 year old skateboarder who looked like a 14 year old rollerblader on national television. Rad. The clip cuts to a real rollerblader eating shit. I just had to do the mad dash.

And for the record, I do not regret any of it. I learned a lot and it paid real well. Now, let’s all have a little laugh at my expense.

When in Rome, Film Rome

bud-in-romeI recently had the pleasure to capture Rome and Ostia, Italy for the Red Bull Manny Mania series. I explored most of Rome via skateboard and had a blast. Felix came in after a few days and we had some fun too. Coincidentally, Dave Duncan and the WCS was out there for another event so we met up with them as well. I was out there for the 4th of July so I made sure to find a couple of Budweisers to drink at the Colosseum. Thanks to Red Bull and Beth for making it happen.

¡Me Gusta! – Active in Costa Rica

I’m psyched on this one!  I shot & edited an epic Active trip to Costa Rica with Figgy, Slash, Nuge, and Clint Walker.  You can read all about it in the August 2011 issue of Thrasher Magazine or click here for the article pdf.   If you’re ever in Costa Rica to skate, make sure to link up with Diego Espinoza and Bryan Gutierrez.  They’ll take care of you.  Giant thank you to those guys, Sonny Nigro, and Corey Cady.

Brad Staba Interviews Brad Staba

I’m very proud to say I shot and edited this little number promoting a Skate Mental contest. The incredibly talented Erica Yary dropped by Brad’s to conduct a little interview, but as you’ll see, Brad Staba does as Brad Staba does.

Watch, laugh, buy Skate Mental, enter the contest.
