I've been elbows deep in work the past week, and it's just the beginning of school. The Daily Sundial is keeping me busy. I wrote a teeth-gnashing piece on the passing of the NDAA and have been assigned the student government beat. However, I've also been given the privilege of having my own column on food issues in addition to submitting a healthy recipe a week for the Arts & Life section. I'm insanely occupied, but I'm looking forward to the opportunity to get some more published clips out there.
I'm also leaving tomorrow to cover Five and Diamond, a San Francisco brick and mortar shop for Auxiliary Magazine. I have a short deadline, so I'll be hiking up to the bay area and turning around the next day to hammer out the photos and copy. I'm also in talks with the editor about interviewing Lacuna Coil on their recent album release.
I'm also producing a documentary project over the course of the next few months. I'm going to follow Flip Cassidy, an LA artist and his involvement with East Jesus, the small artist space within Slab City, a desert community near the Mexico-California border. East Jesus is like nowhere I've been. So colorful and surreal. In the middle of nowhere, it's an oasis of culture.
There are also a few potential modeling gigs coming up, so stay tuned!
