Buttercup here needs a home if you’re looking to adopt here in New York City or the surrounding area.

Babes and puppies on the streets of New York City. Perks of the job, and I can’t complain.

If you love puppy love comment 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️ below!
.
Because who doesn’t love some puppy love?
.
Yesterday I had the privilege to do a pro-bono shoot for @animalhaven in Soho New York. They are an animal shelter here in NYC that has beautiful little pups like this one up for adoption.
.
Don’t live in NYC? Head over to petfinder.com and rescue one where you are.

What’s a creative outlet for you that’s not your normal medium? Comment below!
.
Making hats has become a new art form of play for me.
.
These are my favorite hats of my hat collection so far. .
I became obsessed with hats a few years ago after meeting my good friend @satyatwena.
.
For me it’s been fun to just play in another medium. Light them on fire, paint them, find random pins to put on them in places like Cuba.
.
Also, shout out to @teressafoglia for the blue one on the top left for letting me come play in her awesome hat shop in Industry City in Brooklyn. Definitely worth checking out.

Throwing back to one of my favorite images that I shot at #BurningMan2012 of @crystal__wuwu.
.
This is by far one of my favorite costumes ever, let alone a unicorn.
.
She’s created her own line of costumes like this for all those bougie burners out there. Check it out at @wucreations

Ever get the feeling someone is looking at you?

I’m loving this photograph from my shoot with the musically talented @stellibelli. Not only is she super talented, but she’s a vibrant human!

Photographed in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, 2018.

Wishing I was in some tropical place sipping on a coconut right now. Anyone else with me? Comment 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️. .
I keep seeing everyone on their epic vacations right now and wishing I was on one myself but sometimes the hustle requires time and focus at home in the office.
.
The creative hustle requires a lot of evolution and re-invention and that takes discipline.
.
So for now, I’ll be sitting in my office appreciating this photo of me sipping this coconut and the time I got to do it.
.
Happy Hustle Monday!

Happy 4th!
.
I’m grateful to be living in a country with such freedoms as we have. I’m also grateful for capitalism because it allows me to do what I love and create for a living.
.
Seeing the print of this film shot I took on a Diana camera framed over at @fecastleberry’s curated home reminded me to pull it back out.
.
Much Love!
