I owe my entire glass career to this guy. @justincarterglass is one of the most caring human beings I know. As former roommates, he's seen me barely scrounging by to enjoying the fruits of my success. Always there with words of encouragement, always there with congratulations. With a work ethic like no other, Justin inspired me to drop out of school to pursue a life as my own boss. Thanks broheem . 2017

Naps and prison tats with India ink. Happiness isn't something one can maintain for long periods of time. Happiness comes in spurts, sometimes when least expected. I found myself blissfully happy this past July. It was short lived but made a huge impact on my life. I had let go of any money worries and adult responsibilities. I found myself fully immersed in spontaneity and was lucky enough to share it with another amazing person. Before it was all over, I told us to always remember those amazing moments... The rough ones will pass and be forgotten . 2017

I know right and wrong. Sometimes I  choose to make the wrong decision. It use to be fueled by rebellion but of late, it has been fueled by the yearning for experiences and adventure. Going against what is expected has put me in situations that I never imagined I would get to experience. In the end that's all we have right? A life full experiences and stories to take to our grave . 2017

@jidochris @hawtsaucedirt @loopsloopsloopsloops is a good friend of mine. He passed away a little over a month ago. I've been developing rolls of film from the summer and Chris shows up on every roll. These memories of us jamming and being idiots put a smile on my face. I miss him but haven't been sad about it. I know life is finite and unfortunately Chris left this world too soon. Knowing him, he will live on in spirit and will always bring happy thoughts through photos and his music . 2017

The Portrait Gallery in Penn Quarter is one of my favorite galleries to wander around in. This lady was in deep thought in front of stained glass when I entered the gallery wing . 2017

We met this gentleman at a random bar in SE. I am pretty sure his name is Geronimo. My memory is a bit foggy because we got hammered together.  He had done over ten years in prison and now trains boxers at a gym in Trinidad. Turned out it was his birthday. To celebrate, we took more shots, he taught me how to jab, we left  the bar to smoke a lot of pot and cigarettes on my porch, and ended the day with dinner at Tony's Breakfast. It was a good day . 2017
