Big foiling sailing boats are back in San Francisco! This is the second stop of the new sailing circuit Sail GP.

In the last few months, I refined the different steps from sealing the wood panels to mounting the images and varnishing them for UV protection. I am […]

This is another project started by Ben Davis, the man behind The Bay Lights. While I was there, technician fine-tuned the lights, colors and patterns. This will be a cool show and […]
La Patrouille de France is the French equivalent of the Blue Angels. Currently they are on a US tour with their Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jets and an accompanying Airbus A400M. They criss-cross Northern America and had a Golden Gate Bridge flyby here in San Francisco, something I couldn’t miss. The Alpha Jets flew all over the […]
