Happy Birthday to Me


Today is my 34th birthday. And as is my tradition, I snapped a self-portrait to document the moment.

The last few weeks have been some of the hardest of my life. Still, I feel lucky. I have people around me that give a shit, a loving wife and partner in crime, a world of opportunity ahead, and, of course, two funny dogs, a grumpy cat, and a house full of plants named Fred.

Ever forward.
