There is always a bright side to everything. Whatever you’re going through at the end of the day, keep your head up 🙏🏼 you’re never alone.

Is it stupid that I love you? Excision and Illenium finally dropping their new track giving me all kinds of feels and inspiration. I have bunch more of these double exposures im sitting on. Thought id share one with you guys finally 🙌🏼💘

Let us be the sirens of the sea 🔊🎶 🌊 Still to date one of the craziest trips to SF!

My photos are my memories, and sometimes the only memories I will have of certain places. They mean more then whatever gratification I can get sharing or posting on social media. They are a very personal thing to me and most of the time I don’t like sharing stuff for various reasons. Something upsetting happened the other night that put a lot of things in perspective. Maybe I should share more photos, journeys and thoughts I didn’t want other people to see or hear. There is a lot of personal conflict I have being an artist and sharing things but maybe it’s time I try and change that. I really do appreciate those who have supported me in my efforts and still push me to this day to be not only the best artist I can be, but the best person.✌🏼

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” Crazy how relevant this still is. Happy Birthday America! I love this country and I am thankful everyday for being blessed I am here. Enjoy this shot I took of @6amlosangeles last year at a what is now demolished bando 🙏🏼

Attract what you expect, reflect what you desire, become what you respect and mirror what you admire ✌🏼

Keep your head up kid you’re gonna be someone someday. My hardest piece when you got nothing else to say. Feel the power ⚡️

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain. You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today...

I was walking when I heard a violin and came across this beautiful soul. This guys smile changed my day, and sometimes that’s all it takes. #bekind it costs nothing✌🏼

This is probably one of my favorite photos from last year and I decided to finally share it. I was taking @6amlosangeles home one night after a long weekend and I caught something flickering in my rear view mirror. I looked and didn’t see anything and noticed it again. It looked like a small fire but was busy driving. I asked Ray to look and see what it was. He said it was it definitely a fire of some sort. I pulled off the freeway and turned around immediately for some reason. We headed that way and caught a fire truck speeding towards where we were heading. As we pulled up to the end of this neighborhood we saw a fire quickly spreading and heading towards these peoples homes. It all happened so quickly and the fire was spreading rapidly. I shot this photo of a firefighter during the chaos only to notice it was a Los Angeles Fire Department Photographer. Tons of firefighters went through the houses and up the hill behind the homes and were trying to stop it. A helicopter came no more than 10 minutes later and was able to control and stop the blaze. It was crazy seeing this unfold and happy it ended safely for these peoples homes. Swipe for a video of right before the helicopter put it out, you’ll see how quickly this thing spread. Be safe and shoot everything 🙏🏼

These days burn fast. Got to make a good thing last, but it’s hard when you feel alone. Stardust memories thinking of the way it used to be... Thanks Zeds Dead for giving me feels that not even the closest people could give me ✌🏼

No gimmicks, no tricks or overplayed themes. Just late night creating with my bestfriend. Composition is always key and lighting is the essential in capturing a great shot. Been holding onto a lot of killer shots and this dude been itching to share some stuff, so thank him for making me post the goods @6amlosangeles #hypebeast
