We redeemed a gift from Leanne way back from Christmas. We took a boat cruise out on the harbor, and brought some nice champagne, wine, beers and cheese. Talks of travels, friendships, and the future….
[these were mostly taken by Paul Sargeant of Sargeant Photography, edited by me...it's hard being the only boy on the boat! hahaha]
My best friend turned 30 this last weekend, and a few of us got together for a French themed wine tasting party. It was so much fun, especially since everyone got in the spirit and dressed up. I even got Paul, who just came home from a 60 miles bike ride, to wear one of my striped shirts and be a french artist! The three of us [Kat, Leanne, and I] all dressed as Parisians of course, and drank the night away. I actually lost my voice completely due to this extravaganza but it was worth the sacrifice!!!
As for these photos, i cannot take credit for all of them. The camera got passed around many times and so this is just a collaboration of great friends and artists. I’m pretty sure a lot of these images were taken by myself, Leanne Roberson Sargeant of Sargeant Photography, and Amber Newsome, a great landscape photographer in her own right.
Leanne brought out her Goose, the best polaroid camera ever. We took some crazy shots, one of which I am waiting on to be scanned, because I totally photobombed it. The best thing about this camera is the old school way you have to pull out the film, it is just too fun. She let me do it a couple times and here is a shot of her pulling out the image from the camera!
I went to visit some friends last week out in Chino Hills. We went shooting, had dim sum, and then came back to the house for some much needed pooltime fun. I didn’t take the camera out until the kids got in the pool, but they didn’t loose an ounce of energy all day long.
I met a really vibrant kid named Nate the other day. I snapped a few pics of him for his Grammie while he was outside playing in the yard. He is such a ham!
My friend Johnny is going to find the cure to Alzheimer’s one day. He invited my cousin and I to San Diego for a weekend of fun since he is going to present his speech at the convention center. We had a wonderful weekend filled with some epic breakfast joints, namely Hash House a Go Go, and Snooze.

My friend Jaime is from Equador. He has an amazing real estate business in Long Beach. He is an incredibly picky eater…until he met me. I introduced him to Vietnamese food and we have a special bond with seafood. His wonderful girlfriend Adi threw him a great party. We ate the most amazing flan cake, drank tequila til i could barely salsa anymore, and partied til the wee hours of the night.
Yes, the kid wanted a birthday at the house…with bun rieu, one of my most favorite Vietnamese dishes. Logan turned 10 this year and he was such a good kid. He didn’t ask for much, just a dinner and cake. We gladly obliged.
