1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I love to dance. I’m a pretty quiet and reserved guy. When I’m at a party or a wedding and people see me busting out the moves (very crappy ones) they’re often taken by surprise since they know me as the quiet guy.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
Videography and photography are passions as much as they are hobbies. Fashion is a big passion of mine, I started a menswear instagram last year and would love to start blogging, and making videos for that as well. I play the ukulele whenever I can fit it into my schedule. I love going kayaking, I’m also low-key a huge nerd when it comes to nutrition, nutritional information, and supplements. I guess that's something else that a lot of people don’t know about me because nobody really cares about that kind of stuff.
3. What are your goals for the future?
For the future I’d actually like to do more video projects rather than photo, particularly, shooting music videos, and fashion-based content. I've been doing photography for 7 years and videography for a year and a half. I’ve come to realize video is something I’m way more passionate about than photography, though I’ll never stop taking photos. I’d love to get into work as a wardrobe stylist in the future as well.
4. What is your definition of success?
I would define success as always seeking the next challenge. Success isn’t something that you achieve and then you can just phone it in. Once you have succeeded in completing one task or achievement it's on to the next one. Success is a never ending cycle. Though I think happiness goes hand in hand with success. If you're making achievements and you're not happy, or you're being successful to gain the approval of others, then you aren't going to be happy. Happiness is the ultimate form of success.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently working on.
I’m currently working on editing two music videos together for a local Chicago band, Golds. In addition to that, as always, I have a few photoshoots I still need to finish editing.
