I was gifted a 6 page spread with the Southern California edition of @luxemagazine shot by @luisgfoto . I won’t lie and pretend this isn’t a big deal for me because it kind of is. It‘s a huge milestone in my journey since I’ve embarked on this art career.
It’s been a crazy 3 years since I’ve began this path to pursue my passion and it feels not so long ago that I was making only cutting boards as a creative outlet. I never imagined I would’ve made it this far, but I’m also hoping that this is only the beginning of my career.
Even though my work is done solo, I would be a fool to think that I’ve made it this far without the help from my family and friends. I love everyone who has supported the dream since the early days and bought my cutting boards, tables or anything else.
I do want to thank a few people who have played notable roles in my journey, though:
@coolricky003 for purchasing my first piece that I’ve ever made inside the wood shop. Your cutting board purchase has snowballed into something so much greater. I may have never gone down this path if it hadn’t been for you.
@docswagdanger for going on countless photo missions with me despite your hectic life juggling being a dad and doctor. My work wouldn’t exist in this world without your photos.
@thejeffers9 for always offering support and feedback throughout. Thanks for making sure that I always keep pushing my craft as far as I can take it and being the best sounding board. And for all of the heavy lifting.
I love all of you guys. Thank you. ❤️😘🌻
