Once upon a time, we traveled. Without masks, without worries. It feels like a lifetime ago when a crew of 18 gathered for Chad Michael’s fabulous 30th birthday in the Caribbean paradise of Curaçao, sharing a house that looked straight out of The Real World. There wasn’t a bottle of Purell in sight. I got to capture a few portraits of the birthday boy and other friends, and was even lucky enough to have Chad take my picture too.
