another year older and just happy to be alive
Birthdays are the best time to reflect on how much you and the world around you has changed a short amount of time. I took a lot of risks this year and I can honestly say 20 was the best year of my life, mainly because of the people I’ve met and relationships that have grown. Connecting with people around the world this year has taught me how unique each relationship is and it’s important to be kind and loving no matter what. Happy with who I’m becoming and for staying true to myself. Some things I’ve learned and practiced this year are to pray, take care of your health, journal, stick to your morals, love everyone, let things go, be humble, take chances, and just be a good person. Do things because you genuinely want to. Putting meaning, purpose, and love into everything and sticking to morals is what I strive to do every day and I’m thankful for what it’s taught me. Truly grateful for all of you 🖤
Been an amazing week so far with @blakeyyyp and the @mvmt crew but this was definitely my favorite moment so far. Can’t really describe how beautiful yesterday morning was, truly an incredible experience.
We woke up for sunrise and drove to a beach with mountains surrounding it, swam out from shore and spent over an hour swimming around with these guys. There were way over 100 of them and it just felt so unreal. Thank you to the legend @nolanomura for taking us out and snapping this sick pic, been looking up to him and his work for a long time, so talented
Had the best trip ever to Vietnam, thank you @rorykramer for bringing me out and all the sick opportunities. There’s no one like you and I learned so much about life and myself throughout the trip. Grateful for the amazing experience and getting to travel to a new side of the world with a huge role model and friend of mine. The culture and people of Vietnam were unforgettable and I hope to visit again soon. Working on a YouTube vid with Rory from our time with Malibu Rum, @martingarrix, sleeping on a boat in middle of this bay, the millions of scooters, and everything else 🖤
only thing I can’t afford is to lose myself tryna be somebody, somebody else ~ @thechainsmokers •
Just arrived in LA for the first time ever but only here for a couple days before @rorykramer and I head off to Vietnam. So stoked to experience a new culture and side of the world I’ve never been to before. Can’t wait for an amazing next couple weeks 🖤
Stairway to Heaven ⛰🌄 .
Definitely the most rewarding hikes of my life. Stairway to Heaven really lives up to its name. About 4000 “stairs” pretty much vertical and broken at times to the top: above the clouds and overlooking some of the most beautiful views in the world. Honestly didn’t shoot much and decided to just enjoy the moment, eventually reaching the peak while the sun set with the boys. Even cooler getting to fly over it in a helicopter 6 hours later and see it from a different perspective 🚁
follow the colors, bring your energy 🌈
The last two trips together, @charlyjordan and I began creating a video that involved the colors of the rainbow and creating a visual story of bringing positivity anywhere you go and with anything you do. She is one of the most creative and positive people I’ve ever worked with and it was so cool getting to film and put together her vision for this project. Such a unique view on life and definitely has impacted mine 🖤 @charlyjordan

best place on earth
We had the opportunity to visit a cheetah sanctuary in South Africa that works towards protecting and preserving this endangered species, as well as educating the public. The cheetah population has decreased from about 100,000 to 7,000 in the last few decades. Once spending time and learning about this organization and their mission, I quickly changed my initial thoughts of the animals being kept in captivity. These kind hearted people are doing everything they can to preserve the cheetah species and release them into the wild. I am currently making a video about the mission of this organization and will be releasing it soon @timothysykes 🙏🏼 📸 @maggiekeating
