Chase and I have started our journey to the west finally. It was a crazy hectic past few months getting everything packed for the road and getting the apartment cleaned out. It was really wonderful our first stop being Ellicott City. It's a really wonderful little city. I loved being able to see where Chase spent a lot of his time when he was younger. It's crazy how a place like that could be so close to a place like Baltimore. We both ended up getting Alpha tattoos by Leroy at Ghost town. Lee has been a really close friend of Chase's for a long time. He was a really sweet guy. I'm so glad I got to meet him and the shop was by far, one of the coolest i've been at in a long time. Yesterday was pretty long. I had two shoots in two separate cities. DC to Durham to Charlotte at 1:30am. Luckily my friend Nik and Jon were still up. The past few days have been somewhat surreal. Chase says he lives a surreal life. I am starting to believe him. In Charlotte, we woke up and had delicious breakfast at Zada Janes then heading to a parking garage to get a skyline view of the city. Luckily today there was no rain, just overcast. We went by a new bar called Hattie's as well. The bar owner opened it in October and named it after her grandmother. She was sweet enough to give me a t-shirt. Matt Hooker, about a month ago, contacted me about doing a mural of me on the back patio of the tavern. Of course I had to say yes! It wasn't started during this visit due to the amount of rain they have been getting but I absolutely am so honored and flattered to be a part of a mural in Charlotte at a tavern called Hattie's. So great! Tomorrow, we head to Savannah. I've actually never been so looking forward to it.
So here it is…
I am a freelance photographer and model currently based out of Philadelphia. This coming April, I will be embarking on a large scale road trip with Chase Lisbon across the United States, finalizing our move to L.A. Chase is a renowned photographer, film director and writer who recently released his first feature length movie.
This trip is to gather material via film and digital photography as well as short films and a documentary of all behind the scenes, to put toward future individual books and gallery shows. We will also be documenting everything extensively via all social media which, combined, will reach over quarter of a million supporters. Together we will be partnering with multiple companies that really believe in our journey. We will be traveling to quite a number of national parks and will be documenting each other and the feeling of a couple exploring and becoming closer to nature and to each other. I am still working on specific dates for each city but, if you would be interested in working with Chase or myself, please send all booking inquiries to the emails below or do not hesitate to contact us through one of our social media sites. Email is just always the quickest.
Today was the first day in a while that it hasn’t been blistering cold. Chase and I decided to get out of the apt and take Dracula for a walk. Stopped in at Steap n Grind for one of my favorites, a London Fog. Perfect winter tea latte. Pizza and tea were just what I needed. Chase treated me so well. Too bad we both regretted the pizza later.
