Motorcycle Diaries: Videos, Thoughts, and Meanderings

6 months + 15,000 miles + 34 states = 1 epic adventure

A screenshot from Google maps when I finished my ride.

Motorcycle Roadtrip Montage

An amalgamation of my favorite shots using the DJI Mavic around the country, a ride of 6 months, 34 states, and 15,000 miles on the back of trusty ol’ Bonne.

Key Biscayne Bridge, Miami

My first foray into the world of droning, video compositing and editing, and storyboarding a series of shots.

Point Arena Lighthouse

Cruisin’ along the pacific coast’s PCH, Hwy 1. Point Arena is the western-most point on the continental US, its underwater cables stretching to Hawaii.


Faith and I playing with the Mavic Pro in our favorite field.

Summitting Mount Evans, Colorado

One of the few 13ers in Colorado, I climbed to the tippy top, then across to another summit that looked very much like the Black Bridge of Mordor.

Ride to the Mount Evans Summit

A road scaled around the mountain to a lot at the top, with another few hundred feet to climb to the summit. My GPS boasted a 55 minute scramble to the top, I cut that down to under 30.

Spikeball Redondo Beach

Using the Mavic Pro’s “Point-of-Interest” Intelligent Flight Mode to perform circles around our Spikeball game.

Louisiana Bayou

Footage of a Louisiana Bayou before heading into New Orleans midway through a long ride from Tampa Bay to Dallas.

Riding Through the California Sequoias

Hwy 198 through Sequoia National Park has been on my Motorcycle Motivation List for a hot second. The ride was every bit as legendary as the hype suggests – lots of technical turns, mammoth trees, and breathtaking nature all in a two hour ride.

20K Wrenching at Moto Republic, LA

Getting some knowledge dropped on me for my 20,000 mile service at Moto Republic, Los Angeles.
