SNOW TRAIN – This 2 minute music-video was excerpted from a 10 hour journey by train. The train is travelling north from Trondheim, Norway and by the last shot, it has crossed the Arctic Circle. The raw footage for this video is made available by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK)

MY TEA – Maté tea, a rather potent Uruguayan brew with a bit more zip than the black or green tea that you are familiar with, is the inspiration for the visuals in this video.

WATER WINGS – On one of my daily morning walks along the beach with my dog, I encountered this flock of seagulls hovering at eye-level near the edge of a cliff. I started video-taping and they just kept hovering and hovering, riding the thermals.

WATER SPACE, SPACE WATER – In 2011 I took a harbor cruise around Long Beach harbor. I brought along a pocket camera which I attached to a railing on the bow of the ship. The camera and I got quite wet due to choppy waters.
