My New Ride

When I was a kid my Grandfather used to say he didn’t want any “Monkey Business” out of me. Now that I have a son I find myself calling him a little monkey and, saying the same thing. So “Monkey Business” seemed like a great theme for my new board. Check it out Graphics By Me- Shaped by Michael Mauri at Fundamental Surf.

Happy Valentines Day 2014

Blog, Facebook, Google+, Home Page Update, Twitter 25 Comments

6 years ago I started a daily ritual of meditation. During that meditation I would spend several minutes “Visualizing” Rachel and I raising children on the beach. 5 years ago in April we moved to California. 4 years ago in May we purchased our home in Oceanside. Yesterday I took this photo of our newborn son Daniel in a hammock on his first trip to the beach. Today I am living the dream. Happy Valentines Day Rachel and, Daniel. I love you both more than anything in the world.

Daniel Grey’s First 30 Days

Blog, Google+, Home Page Update, Twitter, Video No Comments

I made my first home video back in 1986 with a Commodore Amiga (computer) and, a VHS deck. People were amazed I could superimpose a computer graphic over the top of live video. That setup cost me $3000 which was a lot of money back then. I bought my DSLR just over a year ago. I bought it because DSLR’s now offer HD video and perform far better in low light. Since buying my DSLR I have been so stuck on photography that I haven’t made ANY videos. This is the first home movie I have made with my DSLR. The footage could be better. It’s a little harder than the point and shoot I was used to. It will get better with time but I am happy with this video. I know it’s not a photo but, I hope you enjoy it anyways.

Rachel’s Car Crash and our Baby

Blog 12 Comments

17 Weeks Pregnant

Many of you know that my wife Rachel is 17 weeks pregnant with our first baby.


We share the belief that community service work is very important. This Sunday morning Rachel had a commitment to do some community service work which required her to travel form our home in Oceanside to meet a friend in La Mesa,  about a one hour drive. From La Mesa she and a couple of our friends drove all the way out to El Centro. This took another couple of hours.


She said “It was a beautiful drive and we had so much fun on the way there”. They did a couple of hours worth of community service work and then jumped in the car to head back.

My Labor Day Weekend Project

So I have a shoulder injury ( AC joint separation ) that has kept me from surfing for almost 4 weeks now. So I spent my downtime doing my very first surf board graphic design. I think I did pretty good for a first try. Bought this board on Craigslist- took it in for ding repair. Designed the top & bottom graphics. Sanded and painted. Check it out.

Rachel’s Master Graduation Ceremony 2011

Video 1 Comment

Rachel has been attending school since before we started dating. During that time she has always had a job and managed to do some type of volunteer work.

One thing about Rachel is she is a very hard worker and I couldn’t be more proud. She graduated with a 4.0 GPA!!!

I brought my camcorder to this event and unfortunately the battery wasn’t charged so I had to shoot this short video with my iPhone. It still came out really good. Hope you enjoy it.

Awesome! The guy who filmed this for me did a great job. On November 1st, 2009 we were married at Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach California. Many of our closest family and friends joined us to celebrate. Stand By Me is a wedding classic and Rachel has wanted to use this song for her first dance since she was a little girl. It seemed only right that I use it to soundtrack the wedding.
