A few years ago I was researching brand photography, striving to become more informed on brands, businesses, how the two work together. I was also wondering how I could capture and create a visual story for a brand. I came across a blog post SLR Lounge, Elements Of Your Photography Brand… , it was so helpful, so much so I still refer to it today for my brand. From that post I followed up with the author, Tanya, who I contacted upon learning she was also a business mentor.Read More

Teens love the on board features like neon lighting as well as the ability to stream their favorite Spotify playlists with the high quality audio systems. It makes for an unforgettable dance experience that gives everybody peace of mind when all is said and done!Read More

What habits do you feel attributed to your success?
Perseverance. I don't stop. Like ever. I may put things on hold since no one can do it all, but I pick whatever it is right back up. And, I push hard. I go that extra mile when others are giving a small percentage. I give 110% each time. I pride myself in excelling in ways that people don't expect from someone like me. I'm constantly educating myself, conjuring ways to reinvent myself or use my time more efficiently.
