Why I Do What I Do
I have always considered myself to be a creator. From childhood, I would draw for hours and even though I never made anything successfully out of pencil and paper it allowed me to get my imagination out of my head and onto something tangible.
From then, I have chased after my dream to be a creator and had hoped that one day it would be something I would do full-time. Through the years, I have played music including writing original songs, provided “graphic design” support to various organizations, and now spend all my creative energy on photography and video.
Creating was something I wanted to do when I grew up.
Something that I want to do all grown up.
Sure, I wanted to be a super hero, a truck driver, a rock star, and a CEO of a successful company through my years but just being able to express myself and what I am passionate about has deep roots in my soul. It drives me everyday and my mind races constantly to figure it all out.
Today, I still don’t have all the answers and there are those things that I won’t be but there is one thing that I now know that I want to be when I grow up…
The authentic person and creator that I am that worries less about the end goal and relishes in the process of just creating. To be successful at being me and continue to strive to be a better version of myself.
To do things I have never done before.
To bring my imagination to life.
I encourage you to chase after your dreams and enjoy every step of your creative process. Let the unique you show through in all that you do.
Imagine. Capture. Create.
