In April 2016, it was my pleasure to receive the Fashion 500 award for "Photographer Of The Year" from The Block Association. They are an event production company based in New York City that represent the movers and shakers of the fashion industry. The company is derived of nine members who have a total of 30 years combined experience producing quality social events. It is truly an honor to be recognized amongst my peers for all of my hard work and dedication. Its has been a long, but rewarding, road to chase after my dreams with no formal training. I have done several collaborations in order to practice my craft which also allowed me to secure professional connections in the industry while finding inspiration along the way. In this profession having close friends and family who support your dreams are the key to success.
