6th January 2011 HAPPY NEW YEAR

Crickey! Its been a while since i posted anything on here, i will be adding a few updates over the coming week and also there will be new work on the site very soon. The reason for the silence is that most of my free time over the past month or so has been spent getting www.civicdaze.co.uk live. Civicdaze is a skateboarding film that i am making (filming,editing, directing, desiging, promoting...). This is a labour of love for me and is something that i've wanted to do my whole life (well, since i started skateboarding 13 years ago). For more info on the project please visit the website (www.civicdaze.co.uk) and be sure to checkout the teaser edit that i've done at the link below.

Happy new year everyone, hope you had a good one.
