Future Prospects

Father’s Day, 2018: Driving back from breakfast with family and headed to go skateboard with a group of guys I checked my facebook messages at a stoplight. Looking back, I’m not sure why as I don’t often at all. But as it happens, there was a seemingly random message from a name I couldn’t recall. The message was succinct and formal enough to instantly understand that there was unfavorable news waiting for me on the other end. I gave her a call and she asked if I was sitting. I thought that was something only said in the movies. She cut right to the point and told me my father was dead. I thanked her for reaching out and I began this journey.

“Future Prospects” is a reflection on fatherhood from the eyes of a son, brother, and father. It is a meditation on the many feelings and questions that I’ve methodically repressed since the 90’s. Themes from this project include longing, fear, loss, love, and transformation to name but a fractional few. I invite you to peak into the trench of disappointment and unknowing with me as you peruse an exposed and vulnerable past (mine!) with me.
