2016- 20 Years Old 

After following my heart and dropping out of college, I quickly turned my attention to creating artwork. I was burnt out. I hated college, I felt like I was wasting my time having people tell me what I needed to be focusing on. Not making any money. Watching my student loan debt increase more and more each semester, book after useless book. The classes that intrigued me the most were the ones people didn't take seriously. Modern Culture & the Arts, History of Rock and Roll, Art History, the list goes on & on.  In 2016 I really turned my life around having no direction at all to becoming a professional photographer & artist.
