What is the best paintball gift you've received?
Mine wasn't a Christmas gift but man was it such a memorable gift. My family and some of my team surprised me on my birthday with a sweet sweet LUXE! A dream paintball gun that would solve my problems of having to borrow guns for tournaments and give me the ability to focus on playing! I've been given so many guns in my life. I am beyond grateful and won't forget any of them, especially my LUXE! This marker sadly like all of the others is no longer in my possession because, well, life happened but I'll never forget how special I felt when I got this gift. Not because of what it was or how nice or expensive it was but because of the amount of effort and sacrifice that others went through in order to surprise and give me something they knew was an extension of my passion.
I will be doing nine sketches of 9 guns in my "paintball career" starting with the most recent and working backwards to my first paintball gun. Stay tuned and enjoy!
So I’ve been getting a lot of questions about sound effects lately, and someone messaged me last night asking me “how do you know what whoosh sound effects to use for your clips, or how do you know which sounds to pick for your videos...” and I told them the truth which was “I don’t know” lol then I said...
When it comes to your videos there are no rules. I chose the sound that I feel fits the clip, I don’t care wether others like it or not. As long as I like it and it makes sense to me and for my video I’ll use it. For example in my Dubai video there’s a part where a Lamborghini goes by and you think you hear the lambo’s engine but really it’s the sound of a Aston Martin that I pulled from epidemic sound... infact I searched for Lamborghini sounds but I didn’t like any of them, then I stumbled across the Aston Martin one and it sounded perfect to me. It was exactly what I was looking for. My point is no one will be able to tell the difference as long as it sounds good and it’s within ball park range of what your showing. One more example, I had a clip of someone putting on knee sleeves but I used the sound of someone putting on sweat pants that I got from epidemic sound. I used it because it sounded a little louder and more dramatic but still made sense with what I was showing. At the end of the day you just have to get creative with it and be willing to experiment with different sounds, the more you do it the more you’ll get comfortable with searching and finding those sounds you’re looking for.... ✌🏽🐺

#tuesdaythoughts brought me back to this gem. ❤️ I lived in Lake Louise for almost 2 yrs and I remember the shock that I experienced in those first couple of months having been a city person all my life. I was seeking the sounds of tires hitting the road, sirens, and honking. .
I couldn’t understand how a place can be so quiet. And when I wanted to recluse.. I could.. but in complete silence. Silence was so new to me that a lot of the nights I couldn’t sleep.
So sometimes I would play during the wee hours of the night/morning. Lol! Bless my roommate’s soul. Now I can just stumble in the basement and just get lost in music. Despite non-ideal (is that even a word?) circumstances then, I still made music work. It was my drug, my life, my voice, my confidante, my advocate and my love. A few years later and nothing’s changed..
So here’s me.. playing around 2am in my room.. staff housing in Lake Louise. Lol! Short piano cover of Diamonds by @badgalriri 💎

You and I.
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.”
Season of Giving 🎄✨
Do you know that something powerful happens when you help others? Why don’t you try something new this year
For example by making surprise dinner for your family or simply let someone go before you in a line at the grocery store. I’m pretty sure that it will make their day better and they will pass the happiness to others too💕
