Truth:
When I model on location and know there won’t be anywhere open that early to get coffee before the photoshoot…
I pack a little container of fresh coffee grounds to sniff when I wake up.

The communities of Bolivia rely on quinoa (keen-wah) production for their  livelihoods. What’s fascinating is how the life of the farmer revolves around the production of the crop, and the care with which they plant and tend to it. I’m so accustomed to seeing foods planted & processed through machinery. Something about this human contact with the Earth just feels right, and from this city-person’s perspective it feels like something we’ve disconnected from that we need to return to. Who knew that eating healthy helps more than yourself, it helps the world! There are real video clips inserted into the powerpoint presentation starting at the 1:37 mark, once they begin to harvest the crop – which is totally cool!

i was recently interviewed for this article on mid-air theft while flying… cuz my stuff was stolen on the way to a shoot.

I think it's human nature to let our guard down when we get in the air… So read and learn from my mistake.

"I closed up my bag, got up to use the toilet…came back, sat down, got a weird vibe because the girl in the window seat seemed a bit uneasy, but she was kinda odd (read: unwashed and crazy eyed) so I let it pass."

i have found some GREAT deals recently on orbitz. they must get exclusives with some airlines and hotels, cuz i dont find the same price on any other website.

TRAVEL TIP:
If you're going to LA, use orbitz to book a room at the Roosevelt Hotel in West Hollywood. Normally $700/night they sell rooms on orbitz for $250. Teddy's celeb-packed nightclub is in the lobby of the Roosevelt, and it's across from the Kodak Theater (American Idol-land).
Shhh

 

I've finally gotten around to posting my new tv commercial.
It's been playing in every taxi in nyc, in Europe, China… well, basically all across the globe.

(give this video a minute to load) 


Just a note: the actors are making, like, zilch off the residuals while Mayor Bloomberg announces the city has spent 30 $mil on the campaign. Where's the money? No wonder there's such angst in the actor's union. 

Regardless i am honored to be in the spot, selected out of thousands to represent the city!

 

Here's a pic of us shooting the commercial in times square. they closed down that area of 42nd street, just below MTV studio, from 6a-1p to shoot.

Major thanks to Mathew Cullen at Motion Theory for a copy of the director's cut!

Mathew and Jesus de Francisco directed the spot, and were a pleasure to work with. 3 days of chaos, floods, and crazy heat in nyc and we still got it done smiling. Sweaty, but smiling!!!
