I mean, I literally have wild in my name.

Nostalgic, imperfect creative with a mission to memory-make.

For as long as I can remember I've always found myself trying to fit into a box that I had no desire to fit into.

As the years go on and I find my life flashing before my eyes, I'm becoming more and more desperate to seek out nostalgia and document everything.

I grew up with parents who videotaped and photographed our entire childhood with their old 80's point and shoots. They become more valuable every single day.

The thing that hits me in the heart the most is the fact that these pictures + videos don’t end there- it never ends.

They become part of your family history that very day.

They will get passed down to your children, who will pass them down to their children. Mind. Blown.

My mission is to bring back real life in a society where appearances are not all they seem on 'insta'.

Life is real and your memories in photos + film should be real too.
