Brad Elterman 2010 Tokyo Reception party   Leave a comment

Got an invite to the reception party of renowned photographer Brad Elterman, who has shot such famous figures as Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan and many more. Free drinks and cool company plus a sweet converted warehouse space was a nice vibe. There was also a great performance by Tokyo Rock chica, ESIE. Biggups to MC Ayanee for the link!

Loved the warehouse space.

Me and the big man himself.

Saki Sugawara Video Shoot   Leave a comment

In the summer I was fortunate to be contacted to appear in my second music video. This time it was with model Saki Sugawara. This is her first video as she tires to break into the music scene here in Japan. I couldn’t upload the pictures until the video was released, so here it is!

I appeared on Nihon Terebi for two seconds (literally) in a small acting role for a mini-documentary on world-famous Japanese dancehall queen, Junko. Was a good experience! You can watch the entire video on youtube here. (Japanese only). I also attached it below.

Checkout the picture from my previous post about the TV shoot, here.
