Caribbean Cruising

I spent the first five days of November working on a Carnival cruise ship commercial in the Caribbean, which sounds great in theory. In reality, there's nothing romantic about running gear all over a ship full of guests and working 12-14 hours a day. It was just like a normal job, except that the ground was shifting and at the end of the day I went to sleep in a windowless room. Fun, right?

Up to Speed

Its been a REALLY long time since i've updated, I know! There has been so much going on, its been hard to keep up. A quick bulleted recap of the past month:

* We bought a house! It was a long and difficult process but we closed about 2 weeks ago.
* We're renovating a house! Its a long and difficult process that just began. Wish us luck.
* Lots of work! I've gotten really busy and exceeded all of my expectations for what might happen when I move to New York. Its been all different kinds of gigs which is fun and fast paced, but sometimes stressful. I also finished editing the Artisans pilot and sent it off to the network for finishing touches.
* Weddings, events, holidays - filling the gaps between work and house stuff

I haven't shot a roll of film in a month, and that is a tragedy. Here's a collection of iphone photos from various recent gigs.

San Juan del Sur

Earlier this month, I went down to Nicaragua to do some work on a reality show shooting in San Juan del Sur. I've spent a lot of time in Nicaragua (probably almost a year's worth of time) but never made it down to the south because I try to avoid touristy spots. I ended up having a great time and being blown away by the contrast from the north of the country, I may actually have to plan a surf trip there sometime (in the off season).
