While in Oahu, Hawaii in December 2012 I had the opportunity to go on several incredible adventures including a helicopter tour of the island, snorkeling at Turtle Bay and Hanauma Bay, and scuba diving at Koko Crater. Of course, I brought along my GoPro and captured some of the action…
For the shark cage snorkel trip I booked it through North Shore Shark Adventures. It was awesome, but I got lucky and only had six people on the trip with me, whereas they usually have up to 24 people on the boat at a time. I heard that another company on the island only brings six at a time maximum, so I’d keep this in mind if you are planning a trip.
For my scuba dive, I went with Island Divers Hawaii. I didn’t find the staff at the shop or on the boat to be particularly friendly or helpful. If I decide to go scuba diving again in Oahu, it won’t be with this company.
It’s always a treat to shoot with my close friend Terry Adams, so when he asked if I was down to film some new combos at one of his local spots, of course I jumped at the opportunity. Here’s what we captured in an afternoon at the SLU campus in Terry’s hometown of Hammond, Louisiana.
This past weekend I had the privilege of heading to my home state to hang out with friends from all over the world during the Flatland Voodoo Jam weekend. It was an incredible contest with an amazing vibe, and I couldn’t have been more stoked to be a small part of it. Big congrats to my homies Scott O’Brien and Terry Adams on all their success with the comp!
I wrote up a press release for the event and shot some photos that were sent out to a bunch of BMX media outlets, and I also filmed and edited two videos—one for ESPN, and one for Freegun Underwear. On top of all that, I shot some photos for a German BMX magazine, but you’ll have to wait to see those until the magazine is printed.

I’m really stoked on this video! I filmed this one on a really fun trip up to Woodward West with some great guys.

Behind The 2012 Flatland Voodoo Jam
I met up with Terry Adams and Scott O’Brien to get some behind the scenes info on the upcoming Flatland Voodoo Jam that’s going down in New Orleans, Louisiana, on June 9th. Be there! I can’t wait for this one in my home state!
Here’s a video I filmed and edited of James Foster for MADD Gear and KHE. I’ve known James for several years now, but this was the first time I worked on a specific project with him. He’s super consistent, really easy to shoot with, and an all-around genuine good dude. We are both pretty excited about how the edit turned out!
Up next is a house check I did with Terry Adams for the ESPN site…
