I can't believe that I started this ONE year ago.. From a Steel Panther concert, to a website being built. I am so happy that I am able to share my experiences and photos with you all. Without the amazing people around supporting me, this website wouldn't be here. Since last year, on this day, I have been able to go to six more Steel Panther concerts. October was the first time, November three times during the KISS Kruise, December in Ohio and March in Pennsylvania! I am so thankful for these guys because I would not have such motivation to actually do the traveling I have always dreamed of and go outside of my driving range comfort zone.
Starting in May I received my first Press/Media pass with Get The Led Out (Led Zepp. Tribute) through smalltownrocker.com, then another Pass for Reverend Horton Heat and again with GTLO recently at Anthology! I got to see KISS on land in Niagara Falls, along with REO and Styx last summer. I also went on the KISS Kruise again for the fifth time, as mentioned above. During that vacation, I was able to see bands that I had never watched live before. For the new artists, I saw Extreme, Derek St. Holmes, Biters, Led Zepagain, Hard Days Night, The Dives, Ki and Bruce & Bob Kulick! For those that I had watched before, KISS, Steel Panther and Sophie Simmons! I am truly lucky to be able to be apart of such an amazing thing I like to call the "Music biz". Or.... So I think i'm apart of it?
I am super excited about the opportunity to photograph the 20th anniversary KISS Expo in Indy on May 12th & 13th. To ever think I would be "working" for KISS is absolutely insane. I do hope to see everyone there! Don't be afraid to come say hello! My college semester ends on the 11th, so this is a nice treat to myself to just get away and have fun with my KISS family. If you aren't able to make it to Indy, I do hope to see you on The KISS Kruise in October. I'll be starting my vacation off right on the 26th of October in Tampa and heading to THE PreParty™ at Blume Night club in Miami! There is going to be TONS of cool people and things to do. That's the only place to be! All are welcome, even if you're not on the Kruise!
I am coming out with shirts... They are currently in the making! I am stoked to offer some STR merch, and I know everyone will love it! Stay tuned for that, and head down to my subscribe button to get notified whenever I put up new content! Below is a little collaboration of the last year. Enjoy!
Thanks for supporting me throughout this last year while I have been figuring things out and messing around! Here is to many more years!!
