A year ago, I took a bizarre leap. I left a job situation that was near perfect in many ways. I was surrounded by intelligent, principled and talented people, I earned a great salary and benefits, and I got to do what I do best—be creative—outside of the typical “churn and burn” corporate agency environment. So why did […]

My Trip to Guam

My Trip to Guam

Posted on Apr 15, 2015

In February 2015, I had the opportunity to travel to Guam for an international volleyball tournament. Eager to play with one friend and reunite with another, I packed my bag and flew across the Pacific. The editor of Volleyball Magazine took me up on an offer to share my story with her readers and the article is now here for all to […]

Lauren Fendrick is one of the very best pro beach volleyball players in America. She was an alternate on the USA Olympic team in 2012—that won both the gold and silver medals in London—and she’s fighting tooth and nail to be one of only four American women to make the 2016 team in Rio. When […]

The Vol-B-Que Events

The Vol-B-Que Events

Posted on Oct 27, 2014

For years, I’ve heard people all around the sport of volleyball complain about attendance numbers at big matches. While elite volleyball players are rockstars in countries like Brazil, Poland and Italy, they just don’t draw at home. So I set out to change that. Taking a cue from USC tailgates, I invented the “Vol-B-Que,” an all-day volleyball festival […]

No one does the exposé-style documentary quite like Participant Media. If you’ve seen An Inconvenient Truth, The Cove or Food, Inc., you know what it’s like to feel an urgent need to change your life habits to save the planet and yourself as the credits roll. Well, a few years ago, producers at Participant took on the global water […]

I’m used to being behind the camera. It’s usually a fun day when I get to be out of the office and on production, whether it be for a print photo shoot, TV spot or online video. There are worse places to be in the world than video village, where catered meals and fancy coffee […]

In late 2011, Volleyball Hall of Famer Jon Hastings reached out to me for some content for one of his publications. Jon is the editor of Volleyball USA, the quarterly “official magazine of USA Volleyball” as well as DiG magazine, beach volleyball’s premiere publication. Jon needed an illustration to accompany an article about coaching juniors. […]

The best feeling in advertising is seeing one of your ideas produced. The worst feeling in advertising is having one of your ideas passed over…then seeing it fully produced by the same people to whom you pitched it without your knowledge or participation. I’m not talking about “oh, we had that idea like a year […]

I fell in love with volleyball somewhere around the age of 16. I started playing jungle ball with some Marines in front of the U.S. Capitol steps and, miraculously, ended up at the far end of the mall—near the Lincoln Memorial—playing with a handful of California & Hawaii transplants like Roger Morris who taught me […]

The Story of Poster Pete

Posted on May 13, 2010

In the Fall of 2008, with the world still drunk on Obamania, I designed a poster to take with me to USC games. I figured I’d sell some and hope the photographer who took the original shot wouldn’t come looking for me (see Shepard Fairey later.) Then, I recalled an afternoon spent at the Rose […]
