Sound System performance

One of my favorite adolescence hobbies was DJ sound systems, the louder, the better.

Abstract Innovations Designs

I was invited by Abstract Innovations, a Point Fortin Trinidad based interior/exterior design company, to cover their work at a high profile wedding in Tobago in early 2014. Now, I have been in the wedding arena for awhile, from working as a videographer fifteen years ago for different industry vendors to owning my own company today, so believe me I have seen all flavors of interior/exterior designs and there are not many executions that could move me.
