Tour Films….

Here are a few of the videos I edited and filmed.

I hope they convey some the feeling of tour and a small sliver of the beauty of this world. This last year has been one part motorcycle exploration adventure, and two parts (literally two in every city) incredible shows. It couldn’t have been better, thank you all.



The End of the 15 year Anniversary Tour 2016

Thank you to everyone who came out to a show, road around with us on motorcycles or spent time with us in some other way this year.
The 15 Year, Self-Titled / In Love and Death Anniversary Tour is over. It’s impossible to comment on all of the incredible things we were able to do and all of the amazing people we meet. All I can say is that we are a lucky group of gentlemen. 

Thanks also to our crew, without which tour could simply not go on. You really are the best.

Blink-182 Canada Support Tour

Maxx242-Blink-182-Saskatoon-Poster-2016Last night with @Blink182

It must be said that @markhoppus@matttskiba and @travisbarker are class acts. Nowhere is it reflected more keenly than in their crew. Never have I met or seen a more accommodating, approachable, helpful, and sweet group of people as the Blink-182 crew. Every night they struck the entire stage—lights, cabs, drums, everything. And not once did I ever see someone angry or being anything less than awesome. Thank you, it was a privilege. I hope you guys have an incredible US tour.
Also I want to thank @handroll @dilznic@seansatfoh @harmonbeenlightin and @tmsteve for being the best crew a guy could tour with.
Last but not less, all of the Blink-182 fans from treating us so well and with so much love and The Used fans for being loud and making yourselves heard, you are incredible.
Thank you. 



15 Year Anniversary Tour Spring Edition, coming to an end.

Thank you to David ‘Suge’ Jun, Danny Payne, Sean Plamer, Justin Kionsyek, Dave tumblr_ny4lmkFSod1r8ngiro1_1280Chappman, Ben Harmone, Mark Nielson and, of course, my incredible band
mates for such an incredible tour. These two months have been a real pleasure. Some many firsts, first time we have taken our motorcycles on tour, first time I’ve ridden in most of the states we’ve visited and first two nights in each city tour. Each show was filled with such enthusiastic fans you could feel the love.
Thank you for such a warm welcome.

I can’t wait to do it again!!!!!



News—The Used & Saosin

2015 has been an eventful year to say the least.

Above all else, I have been welcomed into a family of individuals who are more caring, inspiring, cooperative, and more supportive than I could’ve ever imagined. I started working with The Used in January on a temporary basis and, in a nutshell, it has turned into something more serious. Their new guitar player, I am. I couldn’t be more excited or feel more fortunate to travel and write music with this group of guys. Over the past year of touring, fans of The Used have treated me with an incredible amount of respect and love. It was truly touching and I really can’t thank you enough for the welcome thus far. As far as Jeph, Dan, Bert, and I, in addition to an incredible year of shows, we’ve been working on new music and putting together a bunch of ideas that I think are going surprise you in the best way possible.

In light of this news, after years of writing and waiting to produce a new record, some of the members of Saosin have decided to end our 13 year relationship for questionable reasons. This was a shock to me. Even though all of this happened a few months ago, I’m still processing it. I’m sure I’ll discuss this in greater detail at a later time. One thing I can be sure of is that I could not and would not have done anything differently over the past years. The shows were some of the best we have ever played. It truly seemed as if everyone was happy and positivity was at an all-time high. I was proud of the new music we were creating and to be turned away right before we tracked the record that we had spent years writing and our entire career working towards is saddening at best and angering at worst.

If anyone’s heart or commitment to Saosin could have possibly been in question, it certainly wasn’t mine, ever.

C’est la vie.

To all of the fans that have seen Saosin play, listened to our music, shared in the emotions, supported us or in any way—shared the ride, thank you. Thank you for everything.

Experiences: some joyful, some tragic, some trivial, and some life-changing. Saosin has taught me a lot, Thank you.

Back to present and—The Used. Never have I met a group of individuals that have inspired me this much, not only in the vein of music but also to learn more and do more for the people and world around us. I hope, as a group, we can inspire that exact sentiment inside you.
