I have a confession - I don’t always take the best care of my gear. I have never been great at putting things away perfectly or keeping everything spotless. My camera is a tool and while I don’t abuse the things I own, my camera often finds its way to the bottom of a bag or a lens cap is kept off for a little too long.
I have identified as a dancer for as long as I can remember. When people ask what I do, I always respond with, “I’m a dancer.” Even when dance wasn’t my job. Even when dance wasn’t making me any money. I responded with “I’m a dancer.” It has defined me. It has been my biggest love and greatest passion for nearly 20 years.
