What Ever You Do, Own It


New Years Day 2013:  It was cold out, I was slightly hung over, and in about 3 days I was going to make one of the biggest moves of my life; New York to France with a pit stop in Germany. My life is usually a balance of good intentions and bad planning but somehow, I make it through! The night before, I bumped into my really awesome pal Mr. Pete Monsanto. He is a phenomenal photographer in NYC. I mean he can absolutely murder a shoot.


We were at the same Party for New Year’s Eve hosted by cool guy Xilla of Marrid2theblog.com and Global Grind. Pete asked me if he could do a photo shoot with me before I moved for a project he was working on at the time. It’s main focus was to celebrate women (yassss). He interviewed them about their motivations/goals and packaged it into a profile accompanied by a photo shoot. I was ecstatic that he was interested in working with me so of course I agreed. New years morning, after about four hours of sleep, we met up in Harlem and Pete did what he does best, killed it.
