SO excited to announce a new partnership today with @WeFilmPhilly that will showcase Philly from new angles... Over the next 12 months, WeFilmPhilly and I will collaborate on a series of 12 videos to be released monthly that document and explore Philly's incredible public art and architecture from above with aerial drone footage and sound from the ground... This is apart of WeFilmPhilly's new #PhillyMinute campaign, which you can learn more about now at!

Y'ALL: September's #StreetsDept2ndSat street art walking tour has been announced โ€“ we'll be exploring the #BellaVista, #QueenVillage, and #SouthStreet neighborhoods โ€“ and tickets are now aviable at the link in my bio! Also, quick shout out to the people who came to the two sold out walks in August exploring the Spring Arts and Eraserhood neighborhoods. I can hardly express how much your support means to me personally, and to helping to sustain Streets Dept! (Yarnbomb by @bindingthings) <3

Shout out to the universe, today, for putting me on the sunset train! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Friendly Reminder: Denouncing hate โ€“ denouncing Nazis โ€“ is not a partisan thing. It's a human thing. If you're not using your voice, your social media, your phone, right now to actively denounce the hate that was displayed this weekend by white supremacists on the streets of our country, you're setting a dangerous example for the people around you... People aren't born with hate, it's learned. What are you teaching with your actions this week?

Getting on rooftops, the original drone! ๐ŸŒžโ˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒณ
