Happy Holidays from Fox Music 2015

!FoxMusicCompiled_posterframe_4Here we go again.  Another year another Fox Music Holiday Card!  This is the 8th year that I’ve shot an e-card.  The productions keep getting bigger and “hopefully” better.  Actually, last year was a huge production that took about 2 months to complete.   This year was different but still a big project.

Grain Bowl Obsession: Dream Bowl G

DreamBowlNot sure what prompted me a few weeks ago to stop by Food on Pico.  Maybe it’s just that there was a parking spot. I was running errands during my lunch break and saw a parking spot right in front so I decided to run in and grab something to go so I could take […]

Happy Holidays from Fox Music 2014 H

Poster Fox Holiday 2014 v2I’ve been making e-cards for my department at work for years.  The past 6 years however I’ve really stepped it up.  With each year the pressure is greater to do a better card.  After each card is complete I inevitably get the comment “This year was my favorite.  How are you ever going to top […]

KCRW Pie Contest

I love pie.  Especially the filling.  I do love crust but only when it’s really good.  Making pie crust on the other hand is a whole other story.   It’s the Holy Grail for me. I took the Professional Baking course at the New School of Cooking in Culver City just for the pie crust part.  […]
