Looking for my tribe

Post by MonsterManJD » Wed Sep 19, 2018 10:52 pm

Another virgin burner, making their way to the playa, after many years of being on the fence. I’m finally at a point in my life where I’m ready. After some very transformative last few years, the plan is to make 2019 my first burn. I can not even express how excited that makes me, nor can I really say how I know it’s the right time- but I just know.

I’m an artist, and makeup Fx is my main gig, but I dabble in most mediums. I feel like I have a lot to give to and am looking forward to the opportunity to do so. A camp would be great, but it being my first year I could see going it solo/small group as a logical route as well.

I’m based in Los Angeles (on the west side) but my friends who burn do not live around here. Hoping to meet some locals through the next few months while my journey takes shape.

Here’s to making memories with you all.
Cheers- Jason
