Me. I have always been one to break the rules. Seriously. Just ask either of my parents. Hell, the apple and the tree, ya know? There is a long history of half-cocked, living-my-best-life moments behind me. I am a sayer of the word, “yes” more frequently than perhaps I should when it comes to doing things most people would advise you shouldn’t. Sometimes that’s gotten me into trouble. Other times, its pulled me out of trouble. I’d be lying if I denied both hadn’t delivered a sense of amusement and satisfaction in their own right. I’m honestly not one for the limelight. Never have been. A conundrum, you could say, for someone who decides to take on entrepreneurship from ground zero. I am always thunderstruck when I see my photographs, my story, my name shared with others. I hope I always will be. Buckets fo gratitude to my friend Elana Frankel, who I met very early on via Instagram in my transition from a sometimes-pro portrait photographer to a full-time cannabis photographer and photojournalist. When someone takes a genuine interest in your work, it’s the best damn feeling in the world. There are some days only breaking the rules can fix. Here’s to making all kinds of good trouble.
