This is a very rare time that I'm actually going to use my blog page and post something more than new photos, videos, or a little story about the project I'm currently working on.
A year ago i was sitting at my house, trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life. I had dropped out of school and I was still trying to make sure it was a good idea. The first month after I dropped out I was booked on a few gigs for a little over a month. Fast forward a few more months and it was July. I was now about to embark on a whole new adventure, shooting with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. I had gotten the job partly out of luck but partly out of hard work and ambition.
It started with the White Walls music video, to touring in Canada to help finish the video, to touring around the world and shooting for the tour documentary. It was a blessing to say the least but a lot of hard work. During all that I also shot a pretty awesome short film that is still being finished called All Men Are Thieves. I worked on or shot all the Sage the Gemini shoots and I worked on some awesome projects with Google, Facebook, and many other tech giants.
My life changed drastically in a year and if it weren't for me dropping out of school, I don't know if any of this would have happen so soon. I don't write this to show my resume or say i'm the shit. I'm writing this because as I sit in my hotel room needing to go to sleep to get at least 5 hours of sleep, I can't help but just sit and smile. I've been blessed all my life but within the last year it has snowballed even more and has gone far beyond my expectations. I finished up tour with Logic and had 3 days "off" and have been shooting for Sonic every day. 2 weeks of shooting and catching a plane is exhausting and as much as I want to and do complain about the long hours, I'm lucky to be in this position.
The point of this post is to show people that with hard work, you really can do anything. A year ago I was in my house confused with what I was doing with my life and now I can proudly say I have traveled the world, expanded my horizons, and this year is going to be even better.
