Today I turn 40, for me it’s exciting. I honestly didn’t think I would live to see 30, and for a long time I lived like it.   I am beyond grateful for the time I’ve been given and work extremely hard to make the most of it.  …

Usually, when something upsets me online, the typical and dismissive response from most is that “It’s just social media”. It is a bizarre landscape that you cohabitate with millions of other people. By design, it is both intimate and public. Since I’ve started sharing my art online, I’ve made…

While completing my 10,000-hour commitment to photography, I became obsessed with researching quotes by people I admire. I quickly realized that by following this path, I was the recipient of free advice from individuals that are often considered pioneers, innovators, and the best in their respective fields, which is…

     Five years ago I quit drinking, and my sobriety was hard-won. Three years ago, I had a painful relapse that I hid quietly. I’d like to discuss both. My addiction stems from a traumatic childhood. The earliest parts of my life were filled with neglect, violence, poverty,…
