First off, thank you all so much for getting me to 100 subscribers!! (now we're nearly at 200 and that's just crazy to me!) As someone who's been posting to various YouTube channels since late 2011, I've been dreaming of this moment for a long time.
I recently made some very significant life changes (I decided to move out of state by myself to work on a farm!) and that meant I had to leave my studio behind (other than the minimal equipment that can fit in my camping trailer). For those of you who are interested in music production and are curious about my gear / process, I thought a tour of my studio was a very fitting idea for my 100 subscriber special. Not only that, but I also wanted a memory of it myself since I don't know when / if I'll ever move back and have access to my full setup again. Up until now, these last few years have been a very unique time in my life that I'm extremely grateful for and I want to remember it.
I hope you enjoy this peek into my process!
Late last year, I bought an antique reed organ to replace my old electronic home organ with something acoustic. Because it needed a lot of work to bring back to life, I decided to create a full reed organ restoration series to help others learn everything I wish I knew when I got started as there are very little instructional videos available and many of the ones that are were filmed so long ago that the quality is horrible and it's hard to see what they're doing.
In this episode, I bought the organ and said goodbye to the old one that started it all many years ago and gave me my love for the organ as an instrument that I have today. I hope you enjoy. :)
In this super short vlog, I went along with my mom and Melissa to see a sloth at the aquarium for a photography project of theirs. You might also learn a thing or two about sloths while watching it. ;)
This is the third year in a row that I've vlogged my time at the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off and the second time I've done so with my cousin Noah. This was definitely one of the best years yet with many more balloons in special shapes at one time than I've seen in any of the previous 11 years that I've gone.
In this episode, my cousin and I attend the camera demo day at the zoo, hosted by Mike's Camera, a local camera shop.
I've been wanting to purchase a new camera for a while now, so this biannual event was the perfect time for me to try out and compare a few different cameras and lenses without having to pay to rent them.

I know it's been a little bit since my last post, but the wait is finally over. :) Here's part 2 of my trip to Franklin, Tennessee for the 2018 Christian Worldview Film Festival! This episode covers days 3 through 7 of the trip, which includes the end of the guild through the end of the festival.
Check out the Star Wars Teaser I mentioned and some of the winning films!

This was the second year in a row that I was able to attend the Christian Worldview Film Festival, but this time it was held in Franklin, TN instead of San Antonio, TX. One of the main reasons I went was because the production company S.C. Treehouse was holding an event directly following the festival where I announced a new TV show that I am collaborating with them on called Literal.
In this episode, my mom and I travel to Franklin and attend the first day of the Filmmakers Guild. There may or may not be some geocaching involved as well. ;)
Shoutout to Christian (you can see his back at 2:32) whom we had a great conversation with while flying to Nashville! Also, shoutout to Semenye (the girl on the right of the video thumbnail) who is currently the only person to recognize me from my vlogs. xD
In the final episode of my series of adventures at the 2017 Lamplighter Guild, I show the closing ceremony and my trip back home, complete with strange noises from the jet engine on my last airplane.
It was really sad to leave all of my new friends and return to normal life... I hope this edit carries across some of how I felt during those two final days. Although sad, this my favorite episode of the series. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it too.

Days 3 and 4 of my trip for the Lamplighter Guild were an absolute blast. Between going to Letchworth State Park for morning worship and hearing Andrew Peterson preform a concert for us, it was an awesome time!
