Here is the first shot from the photo shoot I just did this past weekend in Wynwood, Miami's incredible art district. More to come.
My good friend Ann Hughes gave me the honor of speaking at her official side event on Youth Empowerment and Sustainable Development at Rio+20, with the likes of Laura Turner and several other incredible speakers. Here is the video of my short presentation on some of the projects i've been working on. You can see videos of the other speakers at the youtube page of the video.
There is a lot going on in my mind, and life right now. But that’s only sort of the point. One of my biggest struggles lately is to find what makes me happy. And I’ve found one of them. I need to be surrounded by other people who stimulate me. Intellectually, socially, culturally, whatever. Weird, brilliant, driven, peculiar, different, foreign, whatever, I need interesting people in my life. People that will teach me something totally random every time I’m with them, that drive me to bigger things, push me to accomplish more, inspire me, and support me. Unfortunately I have lost some people in my life like this, and it’s been devastating to say the least, mostly why I have been contemplating this so deeply. Yet, I am blessed to be surrounded by more people than ever who are like this. And I think I may have a new way of satisfying this, something healthier for me.
So I’m deciding to offer something up to everyone to encourage this type of environment for people like this to thrive in. My apartment.
I’m a lucky kid. I’ve got a beautiful 43rd floor apartment overlooking all of downtown Miami, and I want to share this with everyone. It isn’t right for only me to enjoy.
I WANT MY APARTMENT TO BE AN OPEN SPACE FOR ANYONE WHO’S GOT ANYTHING INTERESTING TO DO.
Need a place to stay? Done. Need a place to do some homework? Sure. Need a place to grab a cup of tea and chat? Absolutely. Feel like just chilling and reading a new book or magazine? Please! Free food, free drinks, it’s all on me, come over whenever you like, 24/7.
I’ll be back in Miami for the start of the fall semester. Hit me up if you’re interested in stopping by. Hope to see you around.
