What is creativity to you?

It took me the longest time to think of myself as a creative person. I felt like a fraud as an artist. But “creative living,” simply means living a life that is fueled more strongly by curiosity than by fear. And I do that everyday.

So I’m here to empower you - whether you are a creative perfectionist, not sure of where to start, or a little burnt out - here are some tools to get you inspired back into your creative journey.


fun apps to try


- VSCO //coloring
- MOSAIC //stories
- UNFOLD //templates
- TEZZA //film filters, templates
- SNAPSEEED //spot adjustments
- AFTERLIGHT //light leaks, film look

The single most important lesson these last 10 years have taught me is there is no magic pill. I progressed when I put my butt in the chair and start  D O I N G - weekend courses, shadowing creative friends, and searching for shoot ideas.

So many of us believe in perfection, which ruins everything else, because the perfect is not only the enemy of the good; it’s also the enemy of the realistic, the possible, and the fun.”
