When I was very little I was encouraged to do whatever made me happy. Aside from turning me into a massively messy person, it also made me question, extensively, what actually makes me happy. And that is the foundation on which I live my life: I seek my passion, and I promote passion in others.
When I was 16 I met my best friend and life partner. He has taught me invaluable lessons which can be summed up in these words: Refuse to settle for less than the life you want to live. Build the life you want to live.
When I got even older, and it was time to graduate school and choose a career path, I found myself with two college degrees: one in filmmaking, and the other in English. I pursued neither. Instead, I picked up a DSLR and became a photographer. At first I was just taking semi-creepy self-portraits and posting them on the internet…Well, that’s what I still do, technically. I also sell my work in galleries, teach, and license my images for a living.
Now I am also a writer (working on two books at the moment) and motivational speaker. If you had told me ten years ago that I would be speaking in front of big groups of people I would have cried and laughed at the same time. I was deathly shy. But that is exactly how I prefer to live my life: facing my fears head on, challenging myself, and every step of the way making sure I believe that my life is worthy of greater things.
When I’m not creating, you can find me hiking, doing charity work, watching Doctor Who, obsessing over my cats, cooking a wide assortment of vegan food, or jumping in a lake at 5am…because if you aren’t jumping in lakes at 5am, you’re just crazy.
