belgium part ii

i promised thomas we’d go to bruges
before he moved back to the states to settle down, find a nice girl and start a family
and before i do whatever it is i’m supposed to do.

but our daydreams of a little fairy tale town felt more like a disneyland cesspool of tourists.

our last day there, jason had to spend some quality time with his family

so cristina took us around the city for the day.

we’ve named our squad #teamhoodies


 

and sometimes #teamchucks.


 

seriously, how can you go to belgium and not try a waffle?
it’s like going to new york and not eating a pizza or philly for cheesesteaks.


 

a cute goodbye.


 

you take me by the heart when you take me by the hand

cristina, thomas, jason, little annabelle and i scaled walls, hopped fences and crawled through cracks
– the second most perfect way to spend a damp, dreary saturday.

happy birthday to me.

my friends are scattered around the world,
but i found a way for twenty of us to do something together for my birthday this year.

the request was simple.
1. blast wreckx-n-effect’s “rumpshaker”
2. hit record on the camera
3. dance
4. send me the footage

location scouting

last night,
jason and i went location scouting in manhattan for next weekend’s shoot.

we decided to edit the footage for fun and to see how well we work together.

i think i’m gonna like working with him as my director.
