2014 Highlights

As I sit here, typing from a hotel lobby in a third world, I can't help but recall the places this past year has taken me & the faces it has introduced to my own eyes. I can't help but notice how far my friends have come & gone & how much they've all grown in their own respective existences in this universe. When I look back at my own work, I can notice & pick out influences, philosophies, & most of all love from dozens of this world's beautiful creatures, all of whom I am honoured to call my friends - my family. In this post, I'd like to share with the world the love that I received & captured in the year of 2014 while simultaneously displaying a year's worth of growth.
