A Hand-Picked Sampling Of Some Of My Favorite Work


Ace Hotel: Palm Springs' Playground for the Cool Kids

There’s a scene that takes place every weekend at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs. Trendy, 20- and 30-somethings descend from LA and SD to take over the retro-chic property in search of sun and poolside cocktails.
