My greatest passion and accomplishment in life thus far has been becoming the program coordinator at a group home that serves at-risk teenage boys. Over the last few years, I’ve been able to work with young men who have experienced everything from abuse and neglect to homelessness and self-harming behaviors. Though I’ve always had a sense of uncertainty towards my future, I know that I’m doing the work I was made to do.
Whether it be through words of encouragement videos on my Youtube channel or casual everyday encounters, my goal is always to spread positivity and love. In everything I do, I want to be someone who encourages, empowers and educates others.
I guess those years of snapping candids on my cell phones and filming Youtube videos have paid off. I purchased my first DSLR camera in 2014 and have been moving full speed ahead with photography since then. Today, I’m a professional portrait and wedding photographer outside of my full time job. (I also do a bit of videography work as well!)
Not only have I been able to shoot amazing events and talented people in the midwest, but I’ve also had the opportunity to do photography work in Jamaica, Chicago, Houston, and St. Louis to name a few! I’d love for you to check out my portfolio and even work with some of you one day!
