Even though this is the shortest month of the year I feel that I have made some real progress towards a few of the goals I have set for myself. Goal 1: I have been good about keeping up with reading. This month I have read four books (and am about half-way through another). Three […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: February"
I meant to get this out before the end of January, but better late than never. The first month of this New Year seemed to fly by, and pass painfully slowly all at once. The last ten days of January have seemed a little surreal, and it is still hard to believe all that has […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: January"
Yesterday, January 21, 2017, was just the beginning. Protests and demonstrations took place in over six hundred cities around the country but also took place in cities on all seven continents around the world.

Whether you like it or not, whether you voted for him or not, and no matter if today has filled you with excitement, despair, or nothing at all, our nation has undoubtedly entered an entirely new era. The day has weighed heavily on my heart. This morning I found myself not looking forward, but […]Read more "Where I Come from and Where I am Going"

Sometimes life is all about the little things. This year has been an emotional rollercoaster, and the one way I am able to keep myself grounded is to take pleasure in the little things. About a week ago, a good friend of mine from high school and I got together for the first time in […]Read more "The Little Things"
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, black and white photography is without a doubt my favorite kind of photography. There is just a timelessness about the style and, for me, it always evokes emotion and thought. As I prepare for another trip to Haiti this December, I have been wanting to […]Read more "Experimenting with Black and White"
Just a short post: This weekend I got to spend the day out by the river with my grandfather and my mother, and I actually got to snap some pictures of them. My family is probably the hardest to photograph – they neither like to have their picture taken, nor are they entirely photogenic. It was […]Read more "Pops"
So, for the last month or so I have felt that I have been in a sort of Limbo state. My life has felt relatively static, with not much going on and my future pretty uncertain. I am a planner. I love to have my life planned out a few months in advanced – or […]Read more "Limbo"
My grandparents have always been my biggest supporters – not matter what. Knowing that I love photography and I will be traveling out of the country soon, they decided to get me an early graduation present: A BRAND NEW CAMERA, LENSES, AND BAG!! I was able to all my new gear from B&H (which I highly […]Read more "New Year, New Camera"
