I wanted to share with you all my last post for my Instagram takeover with @smithsonianmagazine through the week of Veterans Day! I salute all our present military and our veterans, but more importantly the ones that gave it all and never came home! #neverforget Here is a snippet of a ongoing project I have been working on for the last couple of years with our nations greatest heroes. Those who have been awarded the Medal of Honor!!!!

Throughout the week with the Smithsonian, I was sharing military images and some of my passion projects. I wanted to leave an impression with the viewer, a sort of call to action: There is soooooo much more to this world than what’s outside your front door! I challenge each and every one of you to go out and explore it, get off the touristy beaten track and invest time in getting to know your neighbors, distant lands & beautiful cultures! One only needs to start with a firm handshake, true eye contact and a warm heart!!!!

For those of you who followed along last week, I sincerely thank you!!!!
