7 Year Anniversary


(originally published on Instagram yesterday, the 2nd)

Today marks the seventh anniversary of Americano Mondays. Wow!

I released my first post on July 2nd, 2012, on an old-school Wordpress blog that I used to maintain. Looking back, I could have never imagined the impact a personal project would have on both my life and career. I mean, it changed the freakin' my style of photography.

Not only that, pursuing Americano Mondays has opened up a whole new world to me that I would have never had the chance to explore. And I can genuinely say that the coffee community has become a vital part of my daily life.

I can go on and on - but would just like to say thank you to everyone that I've met, photographed, filmed, and interviewed over the past seven years. I am honored that you allowed me + Americano Mondays to share your story.

I hope to continue creating more work and build more of a community around coffee and creativity over many years to come.
