I know it has been a month since I posted. Sometimes, you gotta just enjoy your life and not spend the precious moments taking an insta. So, in a nutshell, I celebrated my 32nd birthday in the Sequoia National Park with my closest friends and spent 4 days cooking, drinking, laughing and playing spoons (that’s one dangerous game). Yep, that’s moonshine you see (I didn’t hate it).
It was National Donut Day and I celebrated by going on a pilgrimage to the undisputed best donut place in LA, The Donut Man. I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful their fresh strawberry donut was. So, if you’re ever in LA. Go here! (I brought back a box and ate them all with zero guilt)
I then went straight into production for the short film/music video I’ve been dreaming about for more than twelve months. It was a ridiculous amount of fun. A few months ago I met a director who clearly had a great sense of humour, knew how to shoot magic and was willing to go on an adventure. My adventure with Adam Franklinhas exciting, scary, challenging and nothing but fun.
I was lucky enough to shoot at some of my favourite places around LA (Astro Burger, Brookledge, Hollywood and Sunset Blvd’s, ) put on a clown suit and made balloon animals for the first time in 15 years, made a dove appear (the same on that was used in Arrested Development! – thanks Joel!), played with the coolest rabbit I’ve met (Hugo) and some incredibly gifted friends made cameos throughout (one even put a sword down his throat).
After our last scene at LAX, I boarded a plane for Auckland where I met a ship and was heading to Vanuatu before the roughest of seas changed our course and took us to Noumea. So that’s where I am now, having just finished eating what I think is the best chocolate croissant of my life (I’m getting another one the second I finish writing this) about to head to the airport to go back to Sydney for a few days.
I’ve updated the tour page, you can check it out here
I had the second croissant already. Definitely having a third.
About to board my flight to Sydney. Speak soon!
