This week a few articles have gone up on the website that I work for, (www.stagedivemag.com) I had the chance to photograph Hit The Lights, Modern Baseball, Major League, Brigades, Don’t Call It A Comeback and Eric Montgomrey. During my run in with the Skip School Start Fights tour, and this years MSM Fest in Morristown Indiana. Some photos can be viewed in my ‘portfolio section’ at the top!
Also, stage dive has graciously given me two articles this week, showcasing my work during the SSSF tour and my last trip to Baltimore for the ALLT with All Time Low and Man Overboard.

From the time we’re children, we are told that we can be ‘anything we want to be’. Well, what happens if that isn’t enough? What happens if what you want to be, isn’t paying the bills? How do you find happiness in the amount of chaotic sacrificing we must make to turn our ‘dreams’ into a reality? And is there a fine line between success and happiness? Or are they the same, depending on your situation? How many people can say they LOVE what they do, even if they’re broke? And if they’re broke, how often do they want to give up? And do they? But what if they don’t, how do they stay afloat? How do they compromise and find a happy middle ground? How do you keep your dreams alive, when the odds are against you from the start?
This documentary will explore all of the questions/topics listed above. Hopefully to bring light into the world of artists. To show audiences it really isn’t that easy, and that this is a REAL JOB. WE WILL BE ON THE ROAD WITH INDIANA’S OWN DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK (who’ve opened for bands such as the wonder years, and the dangerous summer). ALL SUMMER. CAPTURING THEIR TOUR(S), EXPLORING THE MEANING OF A REAL JOB, AND FINDING THE ROOT OF PASSION IN BEING A STARVING ARTIST.

Last night, Don’t Call It A Comeback had the chance to play at Bernie’s alongside some other pretty cool acts like To Kill A Monster & The Somewhats.
Columbus was by far better for everyone – including myself (from the filming aspect). There was a larger draw for most of the bands, and even a handful of kids drove a few hours to catch the show. Which is pretty damn rad. It made me happy to be a faithful contributor to the Columbus Scene.
Tour thus far is going well, everyone is sleepy, but they’re giving their all! Couldn’t think of a better group of dudes to kick my summer off with. They’ve got some serious talent, and mark my words, it’s only a matter of time before they blow up. I’m proud to be working alongside them for Dead End Dreams.
This is my first time being able to ‘blog’ from a computer, I’m currently sitting at a dunkin donuts in Pittsburgh, PA. I ordered a caramel iced coffee. There is no caramel to be found. However, it’s extremely bitter and that takes me back to the days of film school, which is fine with me.
Tonight the show is at:
The Mr. Roboto Project
5106 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15224
Come hang with us and be featured in Dead End Dreams!
Last night at a house show in Covington, KY.
Somewhat of a rough start, but we managed to make the best of the experience.
The guys who threw the house show were kind enough to let us sleep at their house along with another band from NY.
We are off to Columbus, OH tonight! Headed there early to do some self promo for the show tonight at Bernie’s on High st! Show starts at 9 and DCIAC opens! Be there or be squareeeee.
