No Sleep Til Brooklyn

My web development program through the Flatiron School is September through December. After that Nicole plans to move back to the United States. Her and I are going to get an apartment together near Bank Street, her school. In the meantime, however, I needed a place to live. Luckily, I found a subreddit for NYC Apartments. I procured a…

Gators, Airboats, and the Occult

Back in Florida I got a chance to reconnect with my family who I hadn’t seen in almost exactly a year. They had recently become obsessed with the board game Settlers of Catan. We played dozens of games over the few weeks I was there. I got some dinner with my dad, had more craft…

Flying Through New York

This is my first post writing from the United States. I arrived from the Philippines mid August and spent a few days staying with my cousins near Union Square in Manhattan. It was nice to be back in the states with the endless possibilities that New York City provides. I went to a show in Williamsburg…

My last day in Florida

Waking Up I woke up around 5:30 to feed Mael, my parents’ golden retriever. I’d been looking after him leading for the past week or so leading up to my trip to Korea. He ate his food then headed outside to relieve himself while I busied myself in my room making all my last minute…

Final Thoughts on the cruise

I loved the idea of travelling to Europe by way of cruise ship, but at the same time I realize it was probably detrimental to my backpacking experience. After two weeks on a cruise, I became accustomed to 3 buffets a day and a fancy stateroom. However, my backpacking experience will be nothing like that….

Cruising to Spain

The next few weeks months are going to be filled with a lot of travelling for me. I’m going on a two week cruise with my family starting May 14th and arriving in Spain May 28th. The cruise is through Disney Cruise Lines leaving out of Port Canaveral travelling south to Castaway Cay, Disney’s private…

A couple weeks ago, Litewave Media, the video production company I work at, set its sites on Tongal’s latest video competition. Tongal is a video production site that crowd-sources video commercials as contests. One of their latest competitions was for a company called Wine Picks. Wine Picks is an iPhone app that helps its users…

Litewave Media and Ideal Image

My work at Litewave Media keeps getting more and more exciting. Everyday at work, my decision to work in production is reaffirmed. This week, Litewave Media filmed a series of training videos for Ideal Image Laser Hair Removal, about 40 in total. I was on set for three days as a production assistant, script supervisor,…

StarGump

I recently became an editor, production assistant, and writer for Litewave Media, a Tampa Bay Video Production company. As one of my first projects for Litewave Media, I co-wrote, acted, costumed, boom-operated, and PA’ed for our Sarasota 48-Hour Film Festival entry. Our prompt for the contest was to recreate Star Wars or Forrest Gump in 10…
