Maybe every year of growth feels extreme, but 2014 stands out in my mind as a time with very little middle ground. I got more stamps in my passport than in all of my previous travels combined. I made new friends in NYC and started to feel like I belong in the city I love. My savings account dried up, and I had to get creative around the first of each month. The summer was full of adventure and much-welcomed work. I got to shoot my biggest photography assignment to date. And my wife had an affair.
