Photographing America's 50 States

1343632_1514724[phone redacted]_funddescription.jpg
First and foremost I love to learn. I've always been curious and I've never hesitated to ask a question. I started taking pictures as a kid. I would end up breaking about 5 of my grandmother's cameras trying to film or take pictures. I'm a full time Creative. I have my freelance life where I get hired to create and then there's my creative life where I create for my own good. I could only think about something for so long before wanting to see it or hold it for myself. Balancing out theory and practice became a fluid habit for me growing up.  My mother never asked me for much. She asked me to please finish school, and I did. I graduated from Hyde Park High School at 17 years old and from St. Thomas University in Miami with a bachelors in Philosophy / Global Studies at 20 years old.  I wanted to go to Law School or Business School but I saw steady success online making videos and sharing my photos. My YouTube account became a place I can entertain the world and also teach them the things I was learning. I began studying careers, businesses, issues and started to translate those things into visual products. A few years ago I turned a road trip into a photography tour. I took photos in 15 different cities on a drive from Boston to San Francisco. I shared those photos with the world for people to experience. I love life. I'm fortunate to have been born with an urge to discover and explore. I want to continue studying the earth, its cultures, the languages and its food! I started with the United States and I'm almost done photographing all 50 states. This is what I've dedicated my life to and I hope to continue gathering Support...
