My Father and I

I love this photo of my father and I. It was taken after The Blood Arm opened for Franz Ferdinand at The Hollywood Palladium in 2009. It’s been missing for a few years now, but thanks to my friend Bekki Newton, we were able to track the photo down and I’m really pleased to have it. I can’t wait to explain the whole thing to my kids.

Thanks goes to photographer Timothy Norris for capturing a moment.

Happy Birthday, Ali Bell!

Happy Birthday Weekend, Ali Bell! We spent the evening with my in-laws at Piano Salon Christophori, listening to Nadezda Pisareva play Rachmaninoff, Chopin and Schumann. That was followed by a nightcap at Café Dujardin and then back home to the kiddies. All in all a great night and weekend and it was so much fun to spend it with family. Ali, I love you.

Happy 14th Birthday, Jackie!

You’ve led a life full of intrigue and adventure in Los Angeles and Berlin. You’ve been immortalized on a Thee Nathaniel Fregoso & the Bountiful Hearts album cover, in the German newspaper Berliner Kurier and even had your portrait painted. Marriage and kids didn’t faze you – you’re doing better than ever. Here’s to many more years of comfort, relaxation and togetherness. We love you.

Channeling a Spirit

I don’t really look like my father, but in this photo, I am definitely channeling his spirit. It was taken at Ryan Hays and Juliane Corinna‘s 2015 wedding in Italy. Perhaps there’s something Felliniesque about it as well?

Thank you, Kasper Ipenburg, for capturing a moment.
