  • This image is one frame of a timelapse.

    It's from a video I created that would ultimately transform my view of life and help me understand my place in the universe.

    It was almost 4 years ago my life changed.

    I didn't know it at the time, I thought it was just another personal piece that would live life in the ether that is the internet.

    But it wasn't.

    With the help of the wonderful words of Carl Sagan, a vison I had came to life.

    What vision?

    The limitless possibilities of us as humans. The understanding of how small we are, how little space we take up in the universe and at the same time the unbelievable potential that each one of us hold inside ourselves. If only we could all appreciate it.

    So this single piece birthed my purpose. It made me understand why I am here.

    I am here to tell stories, to convey to people how wonderful life is, even when it is so hard for me to see it.

    So I continue to speak my language, and convey as much as I can to as many as possible.

    To see the wonders, to understand our gift, to never give up and to strive for greatness.

    So I continue.
