// a whole ceremony dedicated to.. myself 🤣 in fullllllllll black lace. i do 💁🏻♂️
// i've marched and taken part in #pride festivities before, but this year tops the list. i have gained a greater knowledge of our history and a deeper appreciation for those that came before us, and know that without our past, we wouldn't have the freedoms of our present. @absolutvodka_us has contributed $125k to @glaad this year, and a total of $40mm to #lgbtq orgs since 1981. thankful for all the support, allies! #AbsolutPride #AbsolutPlanet
// the most incredible, terrifying, jaw dropping experience.. to from and during, especially when the baby climbed on top of my head. i made it out alive 🤷🏻♂️
// dad style to cross the border into uganda to meet the gorillas. it was quite a trek, one that i probably wouldn’t do again in hindsight? depends on when you ask haha. swipe for the drive.
// when the hotel robe is even better as a coat. 💁🏻♂️
// i’m still reeling from my trip to east africa. my 10 year old self could have never imagined this reality.
// up close and too personal...
// i still can’t get over this.. what an incredible world we live in. i wanted to become a zoologist and veterinarian in elementary school (to play with animals), marine biologist in middle school (to be in the water), designer and chef in high school (to be creative, and eat) and environmentalist, diplomat and business owner in college (to have impact and create change). on my safari, the inner child in me loved every second of watching every animal and the college student in me was reminded that conservation, recycling, eco-energy, organic, etc is the only way. now it’s up to present me to decide how to take action. i am still figuring it out my way, but this trip reminded me of my passions and causes i feel strongly about. grounded while in the air, you could say? 🙏🏻
// i finally arrived rwanda to visit my sister (it only took almost two years)! i made time to take stock of everything and filter out what is and isn’t contributing to the life i envision for myself. it has been a blessing to be here physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. travel always seems to force its way back into my life exactly when i need it, and no place like the unknown to help me venture further into the unknown. 🙏🏻⚡️
