it's late and maybe not the best photo but it's been a long day and wanted to share the work I've done for @trouble_co's #maydaymagazine first issue. You are probably bored of #millenialpink and can recognize @champagnepapi but is so much more than #hotlinebling and pink. I promise 😇

I kinda really love New York ~  I used to watch every single movie related to NYC thinking one day I will live here. Once that happened in 2010, it took me a year to realized this was home. I often forget how great this city is and then there are views like this that remind me how lucky we are to be here ❤️
