2018 in review

I started 2018 with the epic drum solo from Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight,” hoping it’d set the tone for the year.

This year was politically exhausting but great for me career-wise. I covered a lot of marches and protests. I wrote about issues that were important to me. I took photos at lots and lots of music festivals. I participated in the 100 Day Project. I quit my barista gig and became a freelance writer/photographer full-time. My photos were published in the New York Times.

I’m excited to see what 2019 will bring.

But first, Here are some photo highlights from 2018:

Trans-Pecos Festival 13th Annual Sandlot Baseball Game

This year’s annual game between Austin’s Texas Playboys vs. Los Yonke Gallos de Marfa was pretty fun. Los Gallos lost 20-10, but those last innings were pretty entertaining. Other highlights include St. Vincent throwing the first pitch, The Watson Twins singing “This Land Is Your Land," dogs running into the field, the Marfa High School Shorthorn band playing during “half-time,” and a post-game water balloon fight.

Hot dogs, beer, music and baseball. Doesn’t get better than that.
