2019 was an interesting year for me. It was a year of reconciliation and at the same time lots of personal growth. It was a year when I learned to lean on others and ask for help as well as rekindle relationships that had fallen to the side. There were new friends that came into…

The Art of Our Surroundings

Simplicity and simple situations that makes me stop and look again often make up my own versions of art. Innocent moments that meant something to me without really thinking about what that meaning is, but having captured it, eases my mind a little with the knowledge that its beauty didn’t go unnoticed and will be…

A 10 Year Chronicle of Being Sober and the Impact of Change.

On December 13th, 2009 I woke up to a bottom that I hadn’t experienced yet in my life and it scared the hell out of me. So much so, that I began the process to stop drinking that very morning, clean up and change the course of my life not fully understanding what that meant.
