Phunkybrats is my little slice of life. Here’s a few things about me:
I’m a writer. The past three years I’ve been working on my first novel titled Life on Emerson Ave. It’s geared for a teen audience. It was written by a helpless (but intelligent) romantic for a helpless (and equally intelligent) audience. Rocco and Marco are the main characters, they’re both learning about love, life and each other. Rocco takes a few punches (literally). Marco learns the value of being honest to ones self. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
I’m a photographer. Ok, let’s be real, I’m an amateur photographer with a huge (ok half decent size) ego. To me, photography is storytelling. It freeze frames a moment in time and captures what could have, or was, a really interesting second. To me, that’s fucking incredible!
I’m gay. It’s kinda boring that I feel the need to announce this when meeting people for the first time. But in a way, being gay opened my eyes to opportunities and lives I, otherwise, wouldn’t have experienced. Being gay is part of my identity but it’s not completely who I am.
I’m Healthy. I’ve been battling the fat war not to mention self-imaging for 10 years. Somedays, I really love working out but on most days I’m just like everyone else…tired.
So in a nutshell, Phunkybrat is about all of these things. Look at it as a hang out where a collection of things happen: Entertainment, Information and Enlightenment. I hope you like it.
