A Video: The Beginning of YAY! LiFE!

My friend Amy and I have been working on this video for quite some time now. If you remember I did a little YAY! slideshow a few months ago. This is a video that tells the story of how YAY! LiFE! all began. I hope you enjoy it! We will be working with them on making more videos in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled and ready. The next projects will actually be more geared towards documenting individuals and their personal YAY!s. If you want to get involved, check out livintheyaylife.com and submit your own.

The Beginning of YAY! LiFE... from YAY! LiFE! on Vimeo.

The Halloween Skate Competition at Scott Carpenter Park in Boulder this year featured all sorts of crazies...a pirate, a Jedi, a pig...even Jesus was there. My pirate friend, Ryan Weilert, may not have won the comp, but he won for largest fan club! Twas a fun day event before the night's Halloween festivites.

From Fear to Fabulous

IMG_4764

I had the privilege of working with this inspiring young woman a few weeks ago. Erica wiglessly welcomed me into her house to take the second picture of her that would ever be published without her wig on. She shared with me her experience living with Alopecia Areata and how she had finally come to the decision to reveal herself in public for the first time.

Brave Erica stood up and gave a speech called "From Fear to Fabulous" at Front Range Community College last week in hopes to encourage others to be able to be real with who they really are. She believes that sharing this about herself has changed her world and can change others' as well.

Way to go Erica! I'm proud of you and encouraged by you.

Please read more of her story by Pam Mellskog at the Times-Call.

Circa Survive & Dredg @ Summit Music Hall

IMG_6124

Circa Survive came out with a bang of confetti to fill the sold-out Summit Music Hall Saturday night. Anthony Green's energy surpassed that of openers Dredg, Codeseven and Animals as Leaders, although Dredg dummer Dino Campanella played both the drums and keyboard at the same time, showing some mad skill. Overall, great performances by all four bands.
