Corpus Delicti

The tale of Joe Ball, Alligator Man of South Texas.

Corpus Delicti tells the true story of Joe Ball known notoriously as the Alligator Man of South Texas. During the early 1930s Joe owned and operated a popular saloon by the name of The Sociable Inn. His clientele flocked to engage with all the beautiful women Joe would hire, but most of all they loved Joe’s pet gators. That is until people began to go missing in town. Soon amusement becomes morbid suspicion. And when Deputy Sheriff Gray and Klevohagen begin their investigation of this strange case, the truth begins to unravel itself.

Happy New Year


It’s a new year, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an update :). Recently I’ve been working on some music related projects (should all post soon) and was on a hiatus from personal creative projects.
But  in the past few months I’ve been organizing a new collaborative project which includes many exciting talents. I will be updating more information regarding the new project, THE GREMLIN soon. Stay tuned :)


Happy Carrot Health Food Store


new video for Sonny & the Sunsets got dropped on Vice-Noisey.
Collaboration with mastermind Sonny, Black and White film Jim Granato and animation by me.
Stoked on how it came out. It’s an epic song, glad we got to do it. I had my doubts that we could pull it off, but I think we did.
I described it to some friends as a Sesame Street style video with narrative device switch ups.
The review on The Bay Bridged said basically the same thing. Haha. I could totally see Sonny having his own children’s show style thing

Cheap Extensions premiers on NPR


The new music video I created for Sonny & the Sunsets, CHEAP EXTENSIONS premiered on NPR!

Here are some other writeups about it if you are interested.

Thank you to Sonny & Polyvinyl Records for trusting me to tell their tale. I really enjoyed making this one.

Happy Thanksgiving,  and thank you to all those who watch and read my stuff

LA bound


whew! sometimes life gives you a crossroad out of nowhere and you just have to take a path. Well without getting into a long story, I’m making the voyage to Los Angeles by Halloween. I’m excited. I’m going to miss Oakland and all the inspiration it’s given me in the years but it’s time to try making art in a different environment.
