A year in review, 25 brought me new adventures that I could have never anticipated. From visiting Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Copenhagen, New Orleans, and North Carolina to relocating back to Chicago for the third time. It brought me amazing opportunities to grow in my career, both in photography and in working for the corporate world and even finding a way to merge the two. I found acceptance in myself and the things I can’t change. I was taught to be patient and that good things take time. I couldn’t be more thankful for the people that I have in my life, my friends and family are constantly pushing me to be better and never failing to make me feel so incredibly loved. Of course this day wouldn’t be possible without my selfless, warm, and loving parents. I will never be able to thank you enough for all that you do and all that you have done over the years. And thank you to everyone for sending me kind messages and taking the time out of your day to wish me a happy birthday, you sure know how to make a boy smile. So cheers to an amazing year of being 25, I can’t wait to see what 26 has in store.
