introducing wavves

I'm currently in the tedious, yet enjoyable, process of redesigning the brand-new Sailing the Sea of Style website. But, I wanted to stop and present my latest project, "wavves", a visual and moving diary. 

As a sailor, I've had a longtime love affair with the ocean, so I finally wanted to express that love from behind a lens. wavves is a multimedia collection of photographs and short films that capture the untamed beauty of the ocean with the reckless passion and uncertainty of youth.

May Moodboard & Mixtape

This is a hefty "M squared" post for the month of the May. My inspiration and creative juices were all out of whack last week, so it's nice to finally have some creativity flowing once again. I've been working on some more short films and videos, beginning with this super short video of mini moments that never surfaced the inter-web. Yesterday, I spent the day on the Hudson River watching some America's Cup racing. I can never turn down some AC boats, along with some hilarious commentary courtesy of friends and family. 


This month's moodboard is all about mustard, the 70s, skinny straps, and bright blue. My favorite blog, the Messy Heads has also been a huge source of inspiration for me lately; from their fashion & beauty posts, to Emma's snapchat story. Good vibes have been um... vibing all around?

For hair and makeup, think sun-streaked hair, messy copper shadow and barely any makeup. Bold brows and nude lips are still going strong in my beauty bag. I think it's fascinating how my film style has been influencing my fashion sense and vice versa. Per example, I've been gravitating towards grainy old film with warm undertones that create nostalgia and breaks through fuzzy memories. 


As for music, it's all over the place with some sick remixes on Soundcloud, to rediscovering Blondie's, "Heart of Glass". The favorites on Soundcloud have been this cover of Coldplay's, "Hymn for the Weekend", and the Steve James remix of ZHU's "Faded". Follow me on Soundcloud here to take a listen to those few, plus a hella lot more. As for those Spotify peeps, here is May's Monthly Mixtape. In the mix, we have some Beastie Boys, Sons of East, and a solid 80s tune from a popular 80s movie. Any guesses? 



Dreamland | Video

I tend to take a different creative route when it comes to directing and creating video content. Unlike the tradition planning and storyboarding, I'm normally struck with some specific idea and I can't stop thinking about it until it's done and dusted. Then half way through the post production, I completely switch ideas and mentally file away my original idea until further. 

Did that majorly confuse you? Sorry 'bout that. 

I wrote a short essay that sparked my OG idea, but alas have decided to save it for another time down the road. Without further ado, enjoy dreamland.
