Memorial Day weekend, 2001

Twelve years ago this weekend I moved to Los Angeles, ready to put my set design and drafting skills to good use in the film industry.  I don't know what I expected.  That I would be here a year?  Five years?  That I would be spending the rest of my life on set, or covered in paint and sawdust, or making blueprints?

with my dad and brothers at one of my early gigs.  (nice swag, guys!)

Well, who knows.  Whatever I expected, I don't think I got it.  I think I got much, much better:

You've been good to me, Los Angeles.  Happy twelfth anniversary!
