I would be a liar if I said I don’t want to change the world. Because the fact is, I really do. But I have lived my life in a way that has been completely unique when compared to my peers. I want to change the world one pixel at a time—through my photography. My passion is to make people look at the world a different way after they see my work, to make people realize the beauty that surrounds them every day, that they may be simply too caught up with the hustle and bustle of life that is passing before them. If I could make a living out of this passion, it would only solidify that I’m preparing to spend my life the right way. However, that is not my sole motivation! My drive comes from seeing others look at my work—to get their reactions, their thoughts, their considerations, and their questions that come up from seeing what I do. If one person were to see my work and forget about it moments after they step away, that means I have failed. I look to challenge those around me, to make them stop and think, to consider what little pieces of life they have been missing all along. These little thoughts are the way I want to change the world. After all, all huge movements have to start from somewhere.
