Back again...

Hey everyone! I know I've been ghost for quite a bit. Since I herniated 2 discs, I haven't really been able to do much of anything besides rest and be careful not to reinjure myself. Back injuries are your worst nightmare, they take almost an 'eternity' to heal and any time you move a certain way you open up the possibility of injury reserve all over again. I lost 9 pounds since my injury and it's been hard to gain it back. My body literally intakes food and it disappears within me. ツ  Soon as I gain a few more pounds and get back into shape I'll be ready to shoot more often. I've started dedicating myself to exercising in my living room and I have to say it is now an addiction. Although I can't lift in the gym, nothing feels better than stretching and working out again.

In the next few weeks I plan on opening a store section on my website where you can purchase signed posters of some my photos. I will be working on a 2015 calendar towards the end of this year as well. Right now my V/SUAL by Van Styles t-shirt is available at and in all PacSun stores.

I'm moving to California this year which really excites me. I'm looking forward to pursuing modeling, going back to school for journalism, and truly focusing on my goals. I constantly hear the pros and cons about moving to California but personally I'm so focused on myself at the moment neither pro nor con is creating any judgement for me. I'll always be me. Born and raised in South Florida, I can't say I'm 100% "ready" to move to the west coast but I'm confident in adapting and becoming an achiever. Oh, and I'm also looking forward to the beautiful weather :D

I mentioned starting a fitness blog a few months ago and since my injury I've decided I want to write more than just about fitness. I will be blogging a lot more from now on. Whether it's about sports, shoes, or food, I plan on posting a blog close to everyday. To the ones that stay in touch, thank you for the continued love and support. xo
