When you were 17, what did you want to be?
I was really into art and creative classes in high school, and I wanted to do something with art. Initially, I wanted to study photography, and be a National Geographic photographer. I still think back to this one moment that I knew I didn’t want to study photography. We had Career Day at school, and this photographer was set up, and I thought, “Perfect, I’m gonna go talk to him.” I’m looking through his portfolio, and he did weddings and advertising stuff, and I remember this ad. It was Levi’s or something, all these young people in the back of a truck with their jeans on. He told me, “This photo is a composite of this one and this one and I changed the background…” and I thought, “That’s not what I want to do.”
