feeling it all since '87.
you might have seen my work featured by
WADE is more than just my middle name.
it was my Grandma's family name.
It is more than a walk in shallow water.
It represents stories of resilience,
love, strength, and laughter.
Most importantly, it is a
beautiful daily reminder
of the world's best
& raisin pie.

Take a hundred photos, and then take a hundred more. I'd give anything for just one more photo with my Mom.
Pizza. always, always pizza.

02 — I FEEL MOST AT HOME WALKING IN THE WOODS,
SITTING BY A CAMPFIRE,
OR GAZING AT THE STARS.
oof my heart:
Love is for everyone.
and what i am doing here.!
I walk through the world with a softness that steeps its way into everything I do. Love, acceptance, belonging, and identity are constant themes in my life and are directly reflected in my body of work.
I am a singer, actor, dancer, photographer, writer, visual artist, son, traveler, mother to Sparkle the cat, and proud member of InKloosiv Voices, Toronto's gospel and R&B choir.
My ability to connect and tell stories is directly tied to me as both a performer and visual artist. I approach the art of photography with a deep passion for feeling, and with a profound respect for the miracle that it is to capture time. That being said, as someone who is horridly shy in front of the camera, I approach photography with a gentle ease, low stakes, humour, and with light & love. Above all, I believe that life and love are the most sacred, and it is the honour of my life to document it.
"Do you know why birds sing just before dawn? Scientists believe it's to tell their mates that they made it through the night, as a way of saying, "I'm still here." Maybe that's why we sing, too, why we create art—as a way of saying, "I made it. I'm still here."
