My long term goals and daily inspiration are what drive me to continue to seek beauty for the right reasons, in the right way.


STAYING AVAilABLE

Personally, my favorite way to approach life is as one big adventure. I typically choose the best route over the common one, so I work best with those who share a genuine passion for chasing their own ideals. The more unique, the better, and if you love the outdoors we'll probably be friends for a long time to come.

The best advice I've ever gotten was from a role model of mine, Bob Goff. After talking for a bit I asked him if he had any advice for me and he simply told me "stay available". Staying available to me means staying open to new people, experiences, and growth but also being able to say yes to travel, grabbing a cup of coffee, or talking on the phone. This may mean driving long days to make it to a venue or staying up to work when everyone is asleep, but it has given me more than I've given up. Focusing on being available has also served as a reminder to think about every opportunity is an invitation. I have to sit back and think about what I want my response to be. When it's a yes, which it almost always is, it's an enthusiastic, all in, very excited, yes, please.
