Q: What do you like to take photos of the most?
I like to take photos of buildings, because they never change form. It’s up to the photographer to make the building look different, and I do a good job at that.
Q: What inspires your photography?
Having an open mind, and trying to see things differently from the Average Joe.
Q: What are some of your future goals and aspirations?
I would like to be a photographer for Sports Illustrated or National Geographic. I would also like to own my own studio and photography company. To give back to Chicago, I want to open up a photography school for the underprivileged Black youth that live there.
Q: Describe your style in 5 words.
Nonchalant, willing, extra, ecstatic, chill
Q: Who is your favorite photographer? Why?
I like Neil Leifer, because he always gets the shots that people talk about for a lifetime.
Q: What do you want to communicate through your photos?
Timing is everything.

What 90s cartoon character helped you become who you are today?
