Behind the Scenes
I was blessed to work with inspiring people in this project. Some of the stories were spontaneous, some were planned, but all were from the heart. In the process, I learned that spontaneity is often more authentic than something planned and rehearsed. Authenticity is what I wanted to capture, more so than perfection.
Standing On Earth represents individual style. How one views themself and the world around them. How one stands on Earth.
It’s about sneakers, but also about people from all walks of life sharing their unique life experiences. My hope is that people can learn something new from the stories told. The videos here are a small portion of the project, which is expanding into new locations.

Thanks for watching,
