1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I used to be in a couple bands back in high school. I would sing and play drums, we sold out the Subterranean once. I went on to make some raps later on in life but I’ve since then retired from my music career. Making music is always a good time though.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
My biggest passion has always been making photographs. I find such pleasure out of capturing the perfect shot. I usually just have a point & shoot camera, let rolls of film stack up over time, and get this unexplainable feeling when I get the photos back weeks, sometimes months later.
I’m also into Tarot & Astrology. As a Libra, it’s fulfilling to be able to listen & understand others and give them a feeling of clarity & guidance in their own lives. I started reading people I knew for practice, then other people would hear through word of mouth and started asking me to read their cards. When I read a strangers cards, that’s when I’m reassured the Universal Energies are on my side and relaying their messages through all my work. I currently have a monthly residency reading tarot at the Freehand Chicago.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I recently got into DePaul. I’ll be going in the fall for Political Science with a minor in Photography. I’ve always wanted to go back to school but have had too much on my plate, which is why I had to drop out of Parsons. (And also isn’t college like a scam or whatever?) I’d like to be able to balance my healing/art work with my school work. Ultimately, my goal is to be in a position of power so that I can help others.
4. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success is being able to do what you’re passionate about as a living, receiving both metaphysical & tangible rewards for your labor. Waking up everyday excited for fulfilling work and to be a positive contributing person of society.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
Lately I’ve been doing a series of super up close & personal portraits of the amazing women in my life. I also started a series of portraits with the seven different chakras. Mostly I'm just working on putting together my first solo photo show.
