When I moved to Austin 3 years ago I wanted to throw a bunch of great parties. I think the mission has been accomplished. It won't be the last time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d73g29XJBl4
I am an artist, entrepreneur, event planner, designer, photographer, and creative dreamer. I created and own a series of entertainment companies working in feature film, games, social media, creative education, and Fine Art.
I design, plan, organize and produce international creative events, bringing together musicians, dancers, acrobats, singers, fire breathers, pole artists, hip hop acts, dancers, performers, burlesque, fetish, models, dj's, traditional Fine Artists, and cutting edge digital performances--bringing the traditional and digital together as one. I am looking for cool people who are interested in inspiring others by doing what they do best, whether it be models, photographers or any other creative group.
To date, I have held shows in Amsterdam, Wellington New Zealand, Berlin, Austin(thrice), Dallas, San Francisco (twice), Montreal, Bucharest, Prague, New Zealand, Seattle and I have Shanghai, LA and Europe upcoming. At times, travel is included in such things.
Opening show for Siggraph:
My show from Nov 13-16 in New Zealand: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showth … ost2008711
My background is in the entertainment industry where I spent ten years making video games and building the online social network for artists ConceptArt.Org (a non-profit supporting international arts). Everything I do is related to art and international creative culture. I am an alumni of Ringling School of Art and Design and studied under master illustrators around the country.
At times my entertainment development company www.massiveblack.com
(games, film, tv, advertising) also requires models.
I throw the big opening show for SXSW each year and hold creative events around the world. Prague, Montreal, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Bucharest, Seattle, New Zealand, Berlin, and many more... I often work in a mix of art, fashion, hair, makeup, costumes, games, film, digital performances, dance, dj beats, hip hop, and culture and multi-cultural interactivity in general:
will show a vid from the fun stuff.
Wellington New Zealand was one of the workshop event locations: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showth … p?t=167782

Up and coming:
I have a beautiful venue and creative studio right in the heart of the downtown Austin music district which is now the home of my art gallery, creative venue, and art school. It is the top program for creating imagery from imagination through digital and traditional drawing and painting. My company will often need models to inspire the artists, who are of the most talented anywhere, as they learn to create the highest quality work possible. Hit me up if you are open to art model or do portrait work.
I will also be doing photo shoots for my own personal development and am happy to work with talented people. If you are up for doing a tfp shoot, I have time nowadays and am looking for collaboration on portfolio development as well. Just lemme know if you are interested.
I have venues and galleries in Richmond VA and Kansas City as well, whom works with figure models weekly.
Ideally, I would like to build a network of good, talented, interesting people, who like me, have a desire to do mind-blowing shit in the name of art and culture here in Austin and around the world. The only way things get done nowadays is when the creatives come together. I haven't been here in the music capital for long, but I know what needs to happen. Below are some different themed events I have done previously, both corporate and non-profit stylz. Creative people making things happen. Art rules. (Update 07-17-09 - This has been achieved.
Happy days. Always looking to meet new peeps who have talent, beauty, creative fire, and more. We are doing great stuff. It is awesome to be in Austin)
I am doing events similar to the Revelations Video above in Shanghai, and LA this year. I am looking for figure models for these shows as well. I am looking to connect with other creatives here in Austin and around the world. The world moves when we work together.
