Brick in Liberty Station was the venue that the 2016 Chew The Scene event took place. 

The Pacific Arts Movement’s Chew The Scene Event is a sign of two things … good food and the annual San Diego Asian Film Festival is just around the corner. ‘Chew,’ which took place on October 11 at Brick Event Center, serves as the official kick off event to the festival, now in its 17th year.

Price Philanthropies Holiday Party - Museum of Man San Diego

Uplighting creates a dramatic effect on the high ceilings and exhibits at the Museum of Man in Balboa Park.

Price Philanthropies held its annual holiday at the Museum of Man, located in Balboa Park, on December 27, 2015. The party was attended by staff, supporters and current and former members of the organizations Aaron Price Fellows Program.

The program gives opportunities for San Diego area public high school students to learn about their community and develop leadership skills. 

The Museum of Man is both a unique and beautiful space to hold an event. With it’s concrete floors, high ceilings and towering exhibits, it’s a feast for both the ears and eyes. In fact, since I was playing an open format set of music, I slipped in a few acoustic tracks just to hear the sound of a raw voice filling up the entire front section of the facility.

Also, this space is made for uplighting and no event should go without it.

Blake and Allison’s Dance Party - Levyland Estates Carlsbad Wedding

Allison and Blake's vibrant wedding party walk up to Levyland Estates in Carlsbad, California.

Levyland Estates in Carlsbad is the location for an ultimate house party. And if you think you can't put together a full on dance party in a garage, well the, you just haven't been to a party at Levyland.

Blake and Allison were an amazing couple that I had the pleasure to meet and spin some tunes for. I played a mix of 70s, 80s, 90s and plenty of current hits.
