1. What is something not too many people know about you?
This is a bit embarrassing and random, but I have this weird thing about butterflies. Not sure what it is and I wouldn't really call it a phobia either, but butterflies freak me out. Like sure, I think they are pretty, but I really don't like them flying around me. Anyway, I forced myself to do a photoshoot at the butterfly exhibit here in Houston to try to get over it and I think it actually helped a bit.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
My biggest hobby, which I would say I am very passionate about is photography. I've been into it for several years now, but it wasn't until last year when I really started taking it more seriously. I've gone through phases of trying to figure out my style, but I think I have finally figured it out. I would consider myself a lifestyle portrait photographer with more of an emphasis on youth culture.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I hope to one day do photography full time. Combining my love of photography with my love of travel and working alongside brands such as Urban Outfitters, Pacsun, H&M would be a dream for me.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success for me is believing that I can accomplish my goals no matter how far-fetched they may be. Self-doubt can be a dream killer and I want to crush that mindset. Not only in myself but hopefully in others as well.
5. Tell us something about the project you're currently working on.
I guess you can call this a personal project, but I am in the process of shooting more with film rather than digital like I normally do. That way I really have to focus on the details of my photo before I click the shutter. I feel like it will help me to become a better photographer, plus you can't beat that analog feel.
