“I've been working with The Cirqle for some years now and have enjoyed my experiences a lot. I think as time goes on, the campaigns have also gotten a lot better. I just love how easy and straight forward working with The Cirqle has been.”

Tell us about how you became a professional photographer?
I started blogging after I was inspired by a few other menswear blogs. Once mine started to take off I had to make a decision to either continue my job in medical sales or become a full time blogger. The rest is history ;).
How did your Instagram take off?
Lots of trial and error. Also, when I started my Instagrams it was a lot easier to create a growth strategy around hashtags. Obviously with the new algorithm updates from Instagram it’s much more difficult now.
What is your tip for men who are looking for style advice?
Invest in quality clothing and find a great tailor.
You also love to travel, as you visited over 50 countries! What is your favorite destination?
That's such a tough question. I have had so many great experiences and have met so many amazing people throughout the years that I honestly can choose. Some memorable destinations however include Gabon, Macao, Istanbul, Reykjavik, and Rome.
What upcoming projects are you most excited about?
You'll have to stay tuned to what I'm working on next but some recent projects include brands such as Rolls Royce, Omega, Four Seasons Hotels, American Airlines and Hennessy!
Do you have any lessons from past failures others could learn from?
Of course. I've failed many times. It's not about falling, it's about getting up. You have to learn from each failure and come back stronger.
Any advice for up and coming bloggers/creators?
If you're 100% serious about this career path, then keep going. Create, network, and stay motivated.
