Long Live Atelier New Regime

As soon as my ticket was booked to Montreal I instantly started thinking about what emerging labels based there I wanted to shoot with. The first one that came to mind was Atelier New Regime. Modern. Street. Well-designed. Socially aware. In my mind, this collaboration was a long time coming…

Life 101: An Open Letter to My High School Self

Every year around this time a new class of students completes their current level of education and must decide if they will advance to a higher level or enter “the real world”. I was 17-years-old when I graduated from the charter arts high school I had been attending in Michigan.

Let’s Go To The EX

I’ve been living in Toronto for about five or so years now and still had never made it to the Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto’s yearly end-of-summer carnival that childhood memories are made of. Luckily, I had a seasoned tour guide to immerse me in all the greatness the CNE has to offer. I sampled fine cuisine such as kangaroo meat sausage that kind of made me shudder a little bit and Oreos deep fried in red velvet batter with vanilla icing drizzled on top that made me want to consider a juice cleanse.

Puerto Rico 2015

Yucca Mofongo. Castillo San Felipe del Morro. El Yunque. Three things you may not be familiar with now but you will be once you read about my summer adventure in Puerto Rico.
