Camera Obscura French Navy Video

Dominick shared this video with me. Not only is it my current favorite pop song, but it's also my life between 2006 and 2008 in pop video version. Enjoy!

Recent Reviews

I've been going to some great shows lately and Dominick has been taking some great photos! Just this week we saw Camera Obscura at the Bell House and they were breath taking. They were much better than the last time I saw them in New York at the South Street Seaport. They've really grown as a band and their new album "My Maudlin Career" illustrates this very nicely. Check out my review and Dominick's photos here.
We also saw the French Kicks not too long ago and you can read that review here.

Article about Aiko on

Earlier in January I wrote this article profiling the amazing street artist Aiko for I really enjoy talking to Aiko about her artistic vision, experiences, and projects. I always emerge from our conversations with new insights about living and working as a visionary and brave artist in a very male-dominated field. Please check out the article and let me know what you think!

Corita's Myspace!

As most of you may know, I'm in a wonderful post-punk, indie rock band called Corita with my friends Nick, Marisha and Aileen. We finally have a Myspace page to show for our efforts with three songs, a video and some photos. So please visit us here: and while I know Myspace is a bit passe, please do add us as a friend so that you can keep up with us, hear more songs as we record them and come to a show when we finally do play out!
