look where you want to go
After graduation, I started working a corporate creative job. The lack of fulfillment I felt and often sedentary aspect of cubicle lifestyle is a direction I never imagined my life taking. It made me realize how much I missed learning and left me questioning how to allow who I am to not be defined by my job. I had never ridden a motorcycle or operated a manual transmission before.
Documenting this new aspect of my life helps me to realize the relativity of perspective: how something that I initially saw negatively affecting my life to actually allow me to support the activity that brings me the most immense amount of happiness and freedom. It makes going to work every day a lot less painful. I hope to inspire people to find mechanics accessible & rewarding. I like how tactile it is for me at a time when most other aspects of my life take form digitally.
Riding and working on bikes allows me to experience living in the present and let go of looking to the past and future. It has brought me to previously unknown places and unfamiliar people: each one more amazing and different than the last.
