    I made this Band of Horses clip for Columbia Records a few years ago when Infinite Arms came out. As far as I know Columbia never released it anywhere. Chris is one of the coolest people I’ve ever met. Likewise for all the dudes in BOH. The few years I was fortunate enough to travel […]

    Why I Read…

    A couple weeks ago I had an exam in my program, Fiction Laboratory. One of the questions was: If you were one of the readers in the library at the end of Calvino’s novel If On A Winter’s Night A Traveler, how would you describe your reading experience? …write your description to fit into that […]

    A Slice of Nick Ackman’s Life

    Gaining understanding of another person is one of the most rewarding aspects of being human. Creating slice-of-life videos, photos, or writings provides me with a chance to engage someone on a level that a usual relationship or conversation might not allow. From this activity, and the subsequent editing process that demands my full attention, I […]

    Northwest Tattooer

    A vintage celluloid tattoo stencil mounted alongside a photo of Fred Marquand hangs in a frame above Nick Ackman’s workstation. Marquand was a Bellingham craftsman who tattooed from the 1920s through the 1940s. Nick developed his craft as a tattooer in Bellingham and feels a connection to Marquand. The connection extends beyond the shared region, […]

    Portfolio 2013

    These photos were taken between January 2010 and December 2013. I photographed quite a bit of live music during those years. 2010 was the last year I shot any surf related imagery. I miss it. The photo of the sun setting behind D street in Encinitas, CA is one of my favorites. I shot it […]

    Blue Letter Books

    My buddy Nick Ackman collects artwork and memorabilia from early twentieth century tattooers. He recently published part of his collection in his first book out of his newly formed publishing company, Blue Letter Books. Here’s a time lapse animation I made for Blue Letter Books and a video promoting the first book. If you like […]

This website is a collection of my photography, writing, videos, and music. A lot of what's here was created for the programs I am taking at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. Or just fun projects I made with my friends.

I like writing a lot, especially fiction. I hope that someday I can write well enough to have a story or two published in a respectable literary journal. Photography has been a hobby of mine since back in the 90s. For a better part of my life I made videos for a living. My music is pretty bad, but it's fun for me, so I do it.

Hallow Notes

Gas fumes!!!

My buddy Skinny and I set up his drums in my garage earlier this year. The garage had been closed most of the winter with my broke down 1964 Ford Ranchero, half taken apart, slowly saturating the garage with the dense flammable fumes! We were able to play just long enough to come up with this […]

New Blue Letter Books Website!!!

I just finished rebuilding my friend Nick Ackman’s new website for his publishing company, Blue Letter Books. It was my first time using Adobe Muse and it was pretty fun.
