Here’s photos from my first year allowed behind the velvet rope with a camera at the AVN Awards. It was awesome getting a chance to see my peers in their element on the red carpet. I tried to capture a little bit more than just celebrity; I hope my relationship to these incredible performers provides a different point of view.
Cardi B Headlined the 2019 AVN Awards and it was epic.
Above is the uncut footage of Cardi B inviting porn performers on stage, as is the AVN Awards ritual. Nothing beats the incredible social media that was produced from this moment in history, but I’m still glad I had my camera to document the AVN Awards first female musical guest.

It’s a shiny, sexy, heavy metal porno music video bringing G.L.O.S.S. and Chelsea Poe together for the first, and hopefully not last time. This was a fun experimental piece for me, inspired by some of the post porn films I’ve seen at Muestra Marrana and experimental shorts at places like MIX NYC. Thanks to G.L.O.S.S. and Chelsea Poe for letting me remix their fine, fine queer art.
