What got you started doing what you are doing?
My mentors played a key role in the reason I found myself in this career. In 5th grade, a very special guest randomly made an appearance at my school to talk on topics like bullying, magic and her book! That was my very first connection - I later found out she was the world's best lady magician and ran a VERY large marketing firm based out of LA. She was my motivation to step outside the norms and grow my brand early and proudly!
What drives you to be who you are?
I want to have a positive impact on the community. I do not want to walk this planet without having an impact and a reason. Boy Scouts and leadership also played a big role in why I am who I am today. I learned a lot about the world and what it takes to be a leader and I want to continue to pave the road for myself and show the world what it takes.

How do you network with so many people?
I started networking right behind my camera. Taking up event photography gigs and opportunities allowed me to come to events and really connect with people most can only wish to reach. Fast forward to today I piggyback off of previous connections and use resources like LinkedIn, Dust, warm/cold email, Twitter, Facebook to reach people who I want to work/connect with.
