About Me

I am a photographer, writer and social scientist...this is my forum for creative expression. I am using this blog to document my days and nights in the city that never sleeps...all the photographs, unless otherwise credited, have been shot by yours truly. If I offend you...good...I hope you begin to think more critically about the world in which we live. I am here to discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly...and there is a whole lotta ugly out there!!! If you have a problem with anything that I write or photograph, let me know. It will not change my opinion but I appreciate and welcome discourse. One little bit of advice...don't do stupid things and let me photograph you...it will turn up on my blog.

XXL Party for Datwon Thomas

Last Thursday we (my girlfriend and I) attended a party for Datwon Thomas in honor of his new position as Editor-in-Chief of XXl Magazine and to celebrate his birthday. The event was sponsored by Hennessy and was hosted in the Penthouse Suite of the Rivington Hotel. Free drinks, one of the dopest views of city imaginable, and did I mention free Hennessy?!!

Attendees ranged from broke freelance photographers to the likes of Video Vixens.
