This was the first time that one of my photos went viral. Over 50 million views across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! It was an unreal thing to witness. Before ESPN featured it, Ball Is Life and Complex also showed some love. This all happened within hours of each other and was so crazy to witness and experience!
When I posted this photo on Twitter, this tweet got close to 60,000 views, and 240 retweets in just a few hours. Not even close to being viral but not too bad for having 50 followers, haha! Within a few hours, I got a couple of emails from some well known publishers. Nerdist was one of them! I thought I was dreaming! You can read the article by Eric Diaz here.
io9 Gizmodo was the 2nd publisher to reach out to me after my tweet. I couldn’t believe all this was happening within a couple of hours. You can read the article by Germain Lussier here.

My first BIG feauture! I'll never forget my first! It was a pretty surreal feeling when Hasbro called to see if I would be interested in having my Force Awakens inspired shot displayed at their booth during San Diego Comic Con 2016. As you can see, I was amongst some really great talent.
