Turning 30 -Chincha-

Before I begin, I know having Chincha write an article about you isn’t a major life accomplishment.  Still, for me it was very special.  I’m so grateful.  If you haven’t seen the awesome write-up by the talented Emily Hodges, please click here.

Did I mention it’s not a big deal?   So,  ask me how I feel 🙂

Or maybe I feel more like this.

Or Maybe even like this.

Needless to say, I feel really, really awesome.  Thanks again to Loren and everyone at Chincha!  If you do not know Chincha, the imperfection is yours.  Please check out their awesome site here.

On a personal note, I turn 30 today.  It’s no big deal.  Minus the wrinkles and receding hairline, I feel better than ever.  I remember reading in Think and Grow Rich or How to Make Friends and Influence People that men reach their peak of potential in their 30’s or 40’s.  I think this is true.  I no longer waste time worrying about women, which is a good summary of life in my twenties.  Instead, I’m focused on projects and goals I want to accomplish. I feel liberated.  I have come to peace with my imperfections and failures, and I have really begun to concentrate in areas of my life where I excel.  Kimchibytes began in April, and it has exploded.  Soon, there will be a portrait line, product shoots, and hopefully a lot more publications in print and online magazines.  I am very thankful for everyone’s support, and I want to assure everyone the best is yet to come.  I’ve put together a few shots commemorating just how far this blog has come in such a short time.  I love all of you and if you see me this weekend; buy me a shot.  More than likely, I’ll eventually shoot your new profile picture on facebook.

Also, please check out this awesome cause, Project Renew, starting next Saturday, November 17th.


Some of these images are from my first posts and a few have never been seen.  This is just a small look back at the journey taken since March.  Don’t forget to click on them to make them big, it makes a big difference in your viewing pleasure;)  Thanks for your support!

    Hey Brent, killer site you got here. Congrats on getting published in Chincha. They did a bit of a write up on me and my photography as well. I did the Korea in Infrared article and had an artist spotlight. I know how you feel, it’s quite uplifting to have one’s work exposed and enjoyed. Anyhow, take care and keep doing what you’re doing : )
