a summer of no bad days

i'm lucky that i got to spend 3 months in the middle of the texas hill country doing what i love most: playing, laughing, photographing, videoing, and spending time with the Lord. 

i'm also lucky that i was blessed with some ridiculously talented creatives (and friends) on my media team. this is the team i lead out at laity lodge youth camp and i'm convinced that it's the best job out there.

the other day, the lovely and talented claire schaper and i went and pursued a short passion project. we make a great team and like to see each other's visions come to life. i love claire so much and know she has huge things in store. i really don't know if i've ever met someone as empathetic, loving, creative, and hilarious (laughing to the point of tears most days) all in one. i'm looking forward to being friends with claire for a very very very long time.

enjoy the photos.

cool pool: david hockney

i am so ready for summer. i love everything summer stands for and everything it feels like. lately i've been inspired by david hockney's work, particularly his quirky details in the roosevelt pool in LA. what's inspiring you right now?

my thursday with geronimo

becoming friends with jihan zencirli has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. she has shown me what it means to be an artist and constantly inspires me. jihan, the original inventor of the frill balloon, has begun doing these giant balloon sculptures (NOT BALLOON ARCHES) that capture your attention and leave you feeling some kind of something. i joined her last thursday at soul cycle in downtown austin to officially become a balloon trooper & help her with an install. i love seeing it pop up all over my instagram feed and know that i got to play a role in making austin a little bit more beautiful.
