Our next weekly content creator and friend, @sweatengine, has an incredible passion for what he does. Here’s his amazing story: „For about 5 years, I was doing biomedical engineering, designing artificial joint replacements. I had a great job; I had a career going. But—I wasn’t going anywhere; I wasn’t meeting anyone; I wasn’t seeing anything. Back in 2009, I had a bad breakup. I decided to be healthy and started running marathons and I soon started a blog focused on marathons. I was doing it on the side as a hobby to take my mind off things. That’s where I got my handle because I used to be a sweaty engineer! That’s how I also picked up photography. I was taking photos of my shoes and at the marathons. I had recently bought the iPhone 4s and someone told me about this app where you could promote your photos—it was called @instagram. Pretty quickly it threw my life upside down. I started connecting with locals who were sharing the same kind of content as me. A little less than a year into it, I started photographing with someone I met through @instagram. We soon both quit our jobs and decided to drive around the country, meeting other people through @instagram. Everything started rolling from there. I’ve never looked back. I’ve been fortunate to get big clients so I can make this work. Initially people told me that if you want to make money, don’t become a photographer, but I work really hard and I’ve been very fortunate. Every day I wake up, it’s hard to believe that I’m able to do this, taking photos on my camera phone and making a living of it. It’s an exciting time. I had no idea that 3 years after quitting my job, I’d be invited to the White House to photograph—I’d never believe it. It’s why people love social media, it’s this exciting time where there’s an intersection between tech and art. Sometimes it’s overwhelming, to be at the biggest fashion shows in New York City, it’s mind-blowing. I’m just a guy with an iPhone. I see all these kids waiting to get a glimpse of Fashion Week and meanwhile, I’m here. All because I quit my job and I wanted to do something bigger with my life.“

“It’s amazing how at one point in our lives we become extremely close with someone and then they become a complete stranger. You will pass by them without a word. Without a single acknowledging look. This person, who once knew you so well, who once knew your fears, your desires, your dreams, your past is now walking right past you, seeing right through you.”

Happy birthday to the ladykiller & littlest Lyon himself, lil bro @yazzthegreatest. Man, in the almost two years that we’ve all been on this ride, you’ve genuinely become family. I know I annoy the hell out of you with looking out but ask my baby bros… That’s what a big brother is for 👊🏿. I pray this year shows you all the greatness and happiness you deserve. Your heart is as big as your talent and I’m proud to know you brother. All love.
