We had multiple sell outs, an encore presentation in the 1100 seat California theater, and two standing ovations.

“East Side Sushi won the audience award and received a 9.7 out of 10.0 average score from a sizable number of surveys at Cinequest Film Festival 2014. The film’s average score was a 10 and the lowest score it received was a 7. Remarkable results.”

Florecer CD cover design

Here is a CD cover I designed for talented musician and producer Mark Baum. It was a great honor to work with such a wonderful human being. It was a tight deadline and a lot of work to do. I really enjoyed working with him and hope to again in the future.

The recording of Florecer began in April 2013. They had finished eight tracks when they lost their friend and collaborator Rafael Manriquez in a car accident.  They had intended to include several of his songs on this CD, but unfortunately they hadn’t been recorded yet. They dedicate this project  to his memory.
