So, there's a gap in my early photos of LA. I dropped my camera into the ocean while heading out to surf in Malibu. Nope. I hadn't backed the camera up either.
ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR PHOTOS IN TWO (or more) PLACES.
Once settled in LA with a job (doing a bit of everything on film sets), a place, and attending UCLA, I signed up for the AIDS Lifecyle in honor of 17 friends that I've lost.
The bicycle ride starts in San Francisco and ends in LA: 575 miles over 5 days. That year we raised $11M+ that year.
This was a group training ride from Hollywood to Malibu and back.
