Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Goes Virtual

By |January 28th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Goes Virtual

Ok. Not the same as being on the North Shore in Hawaii but it was cool to talk to Jack Robinson and Cliff Kapono. The Vans Triple Crown of Surfing is a 35-year long tradition on the North Shore. But unlike everything else that had to go virtual, the change this year may have actually been good for the event as it allowed flexibility around swell/spots, gave the women a ...

Started off the year getting a piece on a conversation with John John Florence published at Men's Journal. The first time I spoke with Florence he was about 13, coming out to surf the Belmar Pro. His mother is from Ocean Grove and he still has family there. The next time we met he was 15 and we chatted in his treehouse, out behind his Mom's place at Pipe. This ...

Oystex by Jetty video

It's amazing when you work with your friends creating content around projects that match your own beliefs.. This fall, Jetty launched their new Oystex apparel, made of recycled plastic water bottles and oyster shells. It diverts two products from the waste stream to create some fantastic threads. And of course, the oyster bit is an amazing fit since they support an oyster reef project in our local waters that also ...

Guide to Skateparks at the Jersey Shore for New Jersey Life

By |September 12th, 2020|Categories: Commercial Work, Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Guide to Skateparks at the Jersey Shore for New Jersey Life

Every once in a while, New Jersey Monthly taps me for a little piece on things happening along the coast. They use the term "Jersey Shore," more than I'd like but all good. This one was a round up of the Skatepark of the New Jersey Shore, on offer north and south. There are a few that have opened in this time. Kind of a roadmap for me and Archie ...

America’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm for New Jersey Monthly

By |August 30th, 2020|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on America’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm for New Jersey Monthly

Renewables! I wrote this feature story that appeared in the June issue of New Jersey Monthly. This was one of those "dig in" kind of research pieces, which was kind of nicely timed with quarantine. While there are some new concerns about the underwater power lines and fish migration, I have been told by my best sources that it shouldn't be a reality. That said, I am very proud that ...

Jetty // Welcome Mia Gallagher

By |August 18th, 2020|Categories: Commercial Work, Video Production|Tags: , , , , , |Comments Off on Jetty // Welcome Mia Gallagher

The crew at Jetty are longtime friends and I love every project I get to do with them. When they signed young surfer Mia Gallagher of Ocean City, they had me produce a fun little video welcoming her to the family. Really seems like a great fit. We had some waves and ice cream on a summer day. Is there anything better than that? Shot by John Gilman and Tony ...
