- Tell us a little bit about yourself and what an average day looks like.
Most people know me as just a photographer, but I’d like to think of photography and creating as just little parts of me. Aside from photography, a couple other things I also enjoy spending time doing are gaming and working out. On an average day during this pandemic, I would say I spend a good bit editing and completing projects or watching other creators do the same. I’ve also recently started live streaming my gaming sessions, which has resulted in gaming becoming a constant part of my daily routine as well.
- Did you receive any formal training or did you teach yourself?
No, I didn’t receive any formal training. I learned most of what I know about photography from YouTube university and personal experience.
- What was your first experience like trying cannabis?
LOL, my first experience was a funny one. To me at least. I smoked with a few of my friends but I didn’t get high. They kept insisting I was high and tried to convince me that they had trapped my head in an invisible box. Needless to say, I didn’t fall for it. I tried it again at a later date and now we’re here.
- How has Toronto influenced your creativity?
I feel like just being from here, it’s hard to not be inspired by the things going on and people around you in the city. I would say the biggest influences on my creativity in this city would be its hip hop culture as well as sports. Basketball specifically.
- Has cannabis helped you lock in and create more vividly?
Of course, cannabis definitely helps me create more vividly. I find that it helps me stay in my creative space for longer periods of time. The real magic happens when you’re in the zone.
- What are your plans for when the pandemic is over?
TBH, I don’t really have any grandiose post pandemic plans in motion. Personally, I’m currently focused on getting my business running smoother and more efficiently. After all that’s said and done, maybe a vacation day (very very likely).
- If you could impart one piece of advice on your younger self what would it be?
Trust yourself, you can do it. Stop trying to skip the journey, that’s where all the lessons are. Put your head down and work.
- Something that keeps you striving for more! ex. family, friends, better life, peace, tranquility
Honestly, my biggest motivator is a need for self improvement. I’m genuinely happy when I work on certain things about myself and I notice growth. I also strive for more because I don’t just want to live a comfortable life, I would like to be able to share that lifestyle with the people I care about as well.
