A first hand glimpse of my RAW Artist Semi Final look. A living Dia De Los Muertos
A big night for me as I was crowned RAW Artist Orlando Performing Artist of the Year for 2012.
I Am So Grateful. Thankful. and Proud and am sure this is only one of many things to come, if I can help it.
Thank you so much Emily Jourdan for this FANTASTIC shot. You truly catch the moment
Thank you so much to my lovely mother, without you I feel like nothing would come together,
And thank you most, to my ever wonderful, partner in crime, and other half TattooLou. The transformations you put me through are an art in their own. You are truly incredible, and I idolize you deeply still to this day. I am proud enough to be your best friend, but I am just as proud to be your canvas and truly show off YOUR talents, and our talents together.

Halloween Season is HERE! It may seem early, but my Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights Audition is tomorrow…ALREADY! And to make it official I had a new and improved headshot taken this weekend to go with and embrace my new and improved look.
I am VERY excited to be “back in season” with Universal since i have missed it so much in just the 4 short months since Mardi Gras has ended, and I cannot wait to see all of my co-workers I met there. But of course, I am ecstatic to meet new people of course as well. The people there are just SO fantastic, from top to bottom. I did meet my current “other 1/2” there after all.
I hope you all are ready for a fun ride with this one! Fingers crossed for a fun, full time, Halloween position. Be prepared, to get scared!
Just wanted to swing by and say, I’M BACK!
So many crazy things going on that have been keeping me busy and away…if that wasn’t apparent.
Just a quick “peek” at what I have been doing. And I promise I will be back to fill you in bit by bit in more detail! No more MIA for me.
- I have just completed a move, not far from the treehouse..but much needed. Now just working on getting settled.
- For my long time followers, I have been working as a seasonal stilt walker here in Orlando after all of my training! I am employed with Universal Studios Orlando, seasonally for some of their great events. Just finished up with Mardi Gras and Grad Bash in the last month or so.
- Keeping busy with my photography as well, hoping to post some of the projects I have been working on for you shortly. And thanks for all of the support on my Orlando series!
- And last for now, but certainly not least…I have made the cut yet again and donated 11 inches of my long luxurious locks…well not so long anymore. But check it out, it’s a great cause that I take my part in every few years! Not to mention, in this hot Florida weather…what a relief.
Since things have STILL not slowed down, that’s all I have time for…for now. Have to keep the momentum and conquer all that I have on my plate for today!
But you guys know..I cannot break a promise. I will be back with more as soon as you know it!

Back again, competing for the ONE spot for the 2012 Monster Energy Pit Reporter on Vans Warped Tour.
A grueling 2 1/2 weeks to go until I find out if I made the first cut! Check out my submission video for this year!
Fingers are crossed! Hopes are high!
…To see you guys in the pit next year

Part of my Orlando series, and one of my favorite spots which happens to not be too far from my “treehouse”. The Amway center here in Orlando is the home to the Orlando Magic basketball team. Which again it just so happens I am a huge, and when I say huge…I mean HUGE Magic Fan.
Which is exactly why this is the print that lives in my personal office at work. The building, for the most part is completely glass. Which made the sky look as if it extends off of the building which I am extremely happy with. However, I wish I had put a little more light on the Amway letters.
All in all, this shot makes me happy day in and day out..literally. I look at it everyday.

This is another shot, from my Orlando series for my office. A train that has been used many times for more than one shoot for me is now finally the centerpiece of this shot and will soon be the centerpiece of one of my coworkers office.
I also received news today, that the framer has completed them and they are ready for pick up. I am very excited to see the finally product of each shot I took that day and get them up around the office.
I think it will make work a little better being able to see them covering the walls somewhere, where I am the majority of the time.

I was recently asked to do an “Orlando” series for my office by my boss. He has decided he’d like to theme or new office with an Orlando theme…places around the city and surrounding the office that are recognizable.
This is one out of the series that will hang in one of the many offices, for the company I work for. This is also the city I live in and have grown up in for the majority of my existence. The City Beautiful….maybe in photographs.
The definition of “day-maker” is coming across one of my photos, on someone else’s page. Although seeing myself is a little weird, this is a much needed wonderful feeling.

Here is the beginning, a rough draft, if you will of my latest mimic shoot. Based on a photo I found right here on tumblr. Still in the editing process, and not really sure if it is going where I’d like it to. But you have to start somewhere…
Chances are it will be completely different by the time I am done with it. But just a sneak peek for now.
Stay Tuned Tumbleweeds!

This is the second self portrait from the series I took this weekend. You can see the original photo I based it off of here. Hopefully this is the beginning of many more. Just a quick thanks to everyone whose been helping motivate and inspire me to start doing what I am passionate about again. Sometimes all you need is a push!
