This is my 2012 show reel that I shot with Stacy (my camera). It was really difficult to pick this footage out of everything I've shot this year, simply because I had so much to choose from. I hope that this reel shows just a glimpse of how awesome 2012 has been for me. So much has happened in my life this past year, all forming and molding me into who I am today. I've been incredibly blessed this year and am truly thankful for the support that everyone has shown me. I hope to continue progressing in all aspects of my life as 2013 arrives.
