Where I stayed
Flying Pig Hostel
My time in Paris and the education and training I received at my photo school Speos prepared me more than I could have ever imagined
Brea's best friend in NYC hooked me up as a PA, production assistant, on MTV and Nike's Battleground...It's a new tv show on MTV that choses the top basketball players in NY to play the best players in Chicago in a 5 on 5 game to see which city is the best. I got to work with some great people and make some great connections. We are living with my Aunt Debbie and Uncle John in Long Island, NY...It is a 45 min train ride into the city, Manhattan, which is not that bad. I get to relax on the train and have time to catch up on things before getting to work in the city. We will be looking for an apartment in September once we save some money.
Before we left Paris my best friends Matt, Vatsal and Melissa came to visit us for a couple of weeks... We went all over Paris and Matt, Vats and I took a train to Amsterdam for three days. We stayed at the Flying Pig hostel and had a blast walking the streets of Amsterdam and hanging out in the coffee shops. It is exactly what you would imagine it to be. It was my second time to go there and we all had a blast. I love the colors and energy of the city
My photo exhibition in Paris is still up at La Dolce Vita, an Italian restraunt...and my end of year photo expo on May 19 at my school Speos went great. I got a chance to work and study with some amazing people and photographers in Paris. It was sad to leave my friends behind in Paris, but I am counting my blessings and know my move to NYC is for the best. I hope all is well back home. Here is my new contact info and a website link with some of my new photography.
