Nate is such a great, supportive friend. He’s someone I can always count on for a solid second creative opinion. Nate works as an actor and is a fellow alum of UCB. You may recognise him as one of the writers in the room on 30 Rock, but he’s done tons of other stuff and he’s great in all of it! I did some portraits of him when he visited NYC this spring. We wandered around Central Park for a bit and had some coffee, and then some man behind us had a whole flock of pigeons land near him, so we documented that. Good times!
I’ve known and collaborated a lot with my friend Erica for almost a decade now, she was a student at PSU when I met her and she modelled for an abandoned book project. We reconnected when I moved to NYC and have gone on some wild adventures since. Once I had her dress up like a penguin and we walked around Midtown; she walked into Magnolia Bakery asking for brine shrimp. We’ve gone on excursions in the Bronx, Kingston, the Whitney, and the Bushwick open studios. One of my all time favourite people, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to have pudding at Rice to Riches with her sometime.
