WHAT'S YOUR PERSONAL MISSION?

I live for unique experiences. I love life. I want to see as much of this world as I can before I die. Photography helps me do this and is a means of recording, documenting and instigating these adventures.

HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY? 

I'm a professional photographer, shooting for 14 years now. I've been artistically inclined all my life. First, it was sketching then painting, shooting and the latest, directing. I got into college with a painting scholarship and changed to photography. For me, it was all a really natural progression from one genre of art to the next.

WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT IN 2014?

This year was a very blessed one for me. I had a lot of great clients and great shoots; Esquire Network, Danika Patrick for Go Daddy, Kylie and Kendall for Steve Madden, shooting and directing a bunch of fun stuff for Oxygen Network but my most proud moment is when I went to Bosnia to document the mine clearing and flood recovery with More Than Nothing. After that trip, I had a show of the work that I made there at Kinfolk 94. We raised $6,000 from artwork sales, which went directly to the charities in Bosnia.

ANY PERSON YOU WANT TO GIVE A SHOUTOUT TO IN THE INDUSTRY?

I have a really great circle of friends. We support each other and inspire each other. Most of my friends are creatives. I want to shout out Chad Griffith, Brooke Nipar, Matt Salacuse, and Kwaku Alston to name a few. They inspire me daily and I'm lucky to know them.

HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT ADHESIVE?

Maybe it was Celeste Holt-Walters or Shab that introduced me to the event. I think I've been going to Adhesive from the beginning. I've always thought it was an amazing idea and I've had SO much fun at them over the years!
