Darren Hayes: Step into the light

Darren Hayes is best known for his time as Savage Garden‘s frontman from 1993 to 2001. But when the group abruptly dissolved, he continued his career as a solo singer.

Parody Videoclip: El Peregrino

My wife’s cousin is a woman of traditions. One of them is to sing a particular song during each family reunion: El Peregrino. It’s that kind of thing everyone knows will happen at some point of the party. And if she doesn’t start singing on her own, eventually people will demand that she does it…

Food Porn Pictures

Mmmmm… food. Who doesn’t like food? And who doesn’t snapshot a yummy meal to post it on Instagram? This is a small selection of my own favourite food pics. Normally taken & edited with my phone.

In other words, I like the immediate satisfaction of seeing my code come to life, I like the visual part of it.

So it made perfect sense to explore other was of creating visual works, starting with photography. I eventually discovered video production, and that blew my mind. I have worked in several self-founded projects, mostly documentaries and food-porn videos.

This video puts all that fun into images. It’s a really silly clip, but it shows really well why I love doing what I do.

Experience and knowledge have a price

It’s funny how we humans repeat the same mistakes over and over again. Our dishwasher was leaking water, so I used this random, hyped App to find a handyman who could fix it. I just let myself trust this application because it seemed legit, and therefore I kind of felt the same about every handyman…
