Happy 2017.

As we ring in the new year, there is a wave that washes over me calling for a fresh start. But before I look ahead, I want to take a moment to look back at 2016. I see multitudes of growth, both professionally and personally. From earning my Masters degree, to moving across the country with my dog and my close friends, to working on movie sets, 2016 was a great launching point year for me.

As 2017 begins, I look out to this ocean of opportunity and wish nothing more than 2017 being an even better year. I hope to continue to grow as a cinematographer and a photographer. Thus far, 2017 has been great. I kicked off my year surrounded by family in Miami, FL and now i'm writing this in my best friend's living room in Atlanta, GA. I'm thankful to be able to fly and visit those who mean the most to me. In 2017, I hope to continue to travel- both locally and internationally. There is a lot of the west coast I have yet to explore and I'm yearning for the opportunity to do so.
