About Cabin text

For much of his unwaking life, Dakin has found himself inhabiting cabins. Whether perched upon the San Juan Mountains, tucked away in the shrubbery of Cape Cod, or nestled in the maple grove on Reber Rock Farm, such rustic abodes occupy much of his mind’s empty space. To these places Dakin retreats in times of wondering and wandering. From the creative space embodied in these lonesome places, Lost Cabin Productions was born.

When he isn't filming, Dakin is most likely to be found riding his bike, playing music, or eating.
