yoomsters Shout out to Shannon, the cutest bartender at Strange Brew Lounge Side, for the nicest note ever to come with a sandwich she paid for two nights ago . Made a great day an even better night.

Birthdays & cute, nice people make for a fun combination.

yoomsters 24 years ago, on this day, my mother brought me into this world in a hospital room in San Antonio, surrounded by my family. That little nugget in her arms is now a college graduate with two degrees, a published photographer, & an award winning filmmaker. That list isn't to toot my own horn, but the horns of my parents. Without them, I wouldn't be worth a thing, accomplished nothing. So I thank them for another year of life & achievement.

That little nugget is who I work every day for. The person I push myself to achieve my goals. I've become the adult that I am for that little nugget who had an awkward childhood & her share of bullies. I do my best for this baby to show her that things will always get better because she is in charge of who she wants to become, she is in charge of getting herself to the places she dreams of while growing up.

You've been blessed with another year, kiddo. Make the most & best of it.

yoomsters I've been doing a lot of photojournalism shoots as of late so this shot was really a welcomed one at the end of the night last week at #SXSW. Isn't it crazy how powerful music is? The camaraderie, excitement, & joy.

Let's go catch a show y'all.

yoomsters This is what #SXSW is all about. Acts coming into town and trying to make a name for themselves. Nice to meet you gentlemen.

Good luck this week.

Off-duty shooting is the best.

yoomsters It's finally here. Months in the making & only a few hours till the first shot of the day. Thank you to my best friend Evan for pushing me & making sure I actually wrote. Also, thank you to our cast & crew, there wouldn't be anything to look forward to without your commitment & hard work.

Let's make a movie .

yoomsters Congrats to my dad this week for being inducted as the first Asian-American President of the American Equilibration Society. Also the shortest president of the AES. He made that joke in his speech on his own I swear. Check his swag.

I am my father's child.

yoomsters Good news: the Korean BBQ in Chicago is pretty great. The authentic, mom & pop, hidden away places are always the best.

My stomach is happy .

yoomsters Leave it to me to be more distracted by these water dispensers than the snow outside in downtown Chicago.

Stay fruity.

yoomsters Happy Valentine's Day kiddos. May you always feel loved, no matter the day. Tell the important people how much they matter, and, if you can, hold them close.

P.S. My roommate makes amazing holiday wreathes for our front door.

XOXO
