What is your passion(s)?
My passion is to create content through photography and film, inspiring people to live life.
How did you get started?
It all started a year and a half ago when I started go out more and adventure with some friends. I started to record every adventure we did, and compile them into video edits.
Shortly after, I joined Instagram and saw all these amazing creators, which inspired me keep creating. It started out as a little hobby, and quickly became my passion.
I quit my job to pursue it. I continued to learn and grow from it. I realized later that this wasn’t just my work, it’s my life.
If you could sit down with one person, living or dead, and ask them one question, who would it be and what would you ask them?
I’d sit down with myself and ask “am I living my life to the fullest and experiencing life how I want to?” This would ensure that I am always going down the right path, working towards achieving my goals.
Imagine you are now 90 years old. You have accomplished all of your goals – experienced everything you wanted to experience. Looking back at your life and all that you’ve achieved; what are you most proud of?
I’ll be proud of myself for how I developed over time from the very beginning of my journey. Getting up the courage to put myself out there, taking risk and pursuing what I love to do. If it wasn’t for every decision I made and in getting out of my comfort zone, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve all the goals and experiences I have had in life.
Look at your daily life…if you were to not change a thing, and do the same thing you’ve been doing for the next 5-10 years, would you become the person you want to become? If not, what would you have to do differently to build the habits necessary to become that person?
If I continued what I’m doing right now, I would say yes, I would become the person who I want to become because I know what I want to do in life, and I love the process of working toward it and perfecting my craft. My passion and drive is what keeps me going. I’ll will continue to work harder everyday to achieve my goals. With that, it’s all about the ups and downs. That’s how we learn and grow in life. Every mistake and failure is a pathway and process for growth.
If money were no object, what would you spend your life doing?
I would spend my life living doing what I love to do, with the people I care about and love. We would make amazing memories together, and help and inspire those who need it.
Over the last six months, when have you felt most alive and electrified? What were you doing?
I felt so alive when I quit my regular job to pursue my passion. Thats how I started living.
If you had 30 seconds on a radio that would be broadcasted to the entire world, what one important message would you put out, and why?
Life is short. Live your life the way you want to. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there over and over again. Learn the accept failure, heartbreaks, and the ups and downs in life. This is the way of growth.
What does it mean to you to Thrive?
For me, “Thrive” means to be able to take risks, to learn and grow, and pursue what you want in life with NO LIMITS.
