When I was a lot younger and trying to figure it all out, the wisdom I'd receive was "follow your dreams." But it was always from people who never followed their own advice, who were just regurgitating something they read on a cereal box or a motivational poster in the library. Still, I listened. I became a photojournalist. Then I woke up one morning and realized I was broke, and that working as a photojournalist was the reason I was broke. So I quit and walked across America, against the advice of everyone, because it seemed like the right thing to do. And it was.
Now I make my money elsewhere, and take pictures occasionally. Photography is a lot more fun this way.
In my former life, my photos were honored by International Photography Awards, NPPA Best of Photojournalism and Renaissance Photography Prize, among others.
I'm just just going to have adventures for the rest of my life.
Thanks for visiting.
