Hello people, I'm a photographer located in Vancouver. I'm also a marketing guru, copywriter and food lover. This is my outlet for cool stuff, creative sparks of genius and other crap.

 

crazy shit happens when you’re not afraid to lose

Well here I am over a year later since my last post. Things were crazy a year ago, I was freelancing, I started a company that failed. I learned a ton of lessons that changed my life. One thing that I have always continued to follow was my gut, when it tells me something has potential I go after it. 

Now, I am living in Europe, Budapest to be exact. I’m the Creative Director at a medium size agency with a great group of creative talent from all over the world. If you would have told me a year ago that I would be here I would have said you were crazy. But my gut knew it.

Sometimes you have to jump in with both feet. Say what the fuck and leave your worries behind. One thing I’ve learned over my last 10 years of craziness is that you get through the deepest shit, no matter how in over your head you think you are. You get through it. Sometimes it’s not how you thought you would get through but you get through. Lessons are learned and you take the wisdom with you to your next challenge.

Keep pushing, don’t give up. Success only comes to those who truly want it. To those who are willing to lose everything because in some cases you will.

Until my next post.

Cheers

If change was easy it wouldn’t be nearly as gratifying.

For a second year, the German street art collective Mentalgassi has made photo lenticulars for Amnesty International.

They’re a little like visual illusions — when you walk by the photo comes into view.
