Photography

THOUGHTS:
It is something I really enjoy doing. I started taking photos in 2007 while I was still in high school. The cameras at the time had such a poor resolution to what you can find in today’s cell phones, but sure enough it was enough to get me hooked.

Photoshop CS3 was the most recent version my school had and I took full advantage of their multimedia program. It just so happened that I could combine my love for 2-D Design and Digital Media to create some very interesting illustration.

Some of the accomplishments are a Best in Photography Award in 2014 from San Jose City College, an internship with a very reputable fashion design in Los Angeles, and an amazing career for a prestigious non-profit.

The work on was shot on my 2012 iPad.

GoldGauges

“Where do I begin– I’m still figuring out design. Yet, as a design student it just so happens that I make more than concept models, mock-ups, and sketches.. I also make songs about my own life– or GoldGauges is my other half. Don’t think too much about it, it’s just my platform for everything else.”

GoldGauges is just one of his personas as an active west coast artist and sonic visionary. He calls San Jose, CA his hometown and is a native to that part of the South bay.

Composing music that evokes a sense of reminiscence of the Bay Area’s respective 2006 Hyphy Era has enable him to take part in what is now the new wave of bay area music. Alongside local produces, he seeks to create a new interpretation of what it means to grow up in the shadows of the Silicon Valley’s tech elite. A hard struggle to determine if he should stay or move away from a city where “nothing ever really happens” and synonymous with the suburb, he shares his motives to what really drove him to abandon everything in LA and return with high hopes to his roots in the City of San José. What we find in these few compilations is a genuine drive from a 24 year old male making use of his technology, design, and knowledge of trends and pleasing aesthetics to create new contemporary music.

Here is his whole discography.

Seldom Industries

About

Seldom Industries was founded on the principle “where we live is a reflection of where we want to go in life”. After we began uploading videos, blogs posts, and pictures it was decided that it would need a bit more funding and friends to continue forward. That being said, why do we exist?

We simply want to share new music, art, and visual content relevant to the City of San José, California, and maybe attract some more creative collaborators, partners, and sponsors.

We hope to inspire the incoming generations of creatives through our photos, videos, and music.

Stick around, let’s get to know each other.
