Chapter 1

Was Always Focused on the Camera

If you asked most of any of my teachers in school who among their students was most likely to write a book someday, I’m pretty sure I would have been near the bottom of the list—if I made a list at all. When it came to the classroom, I generally tried to keep as low a profile as possible, to avoid drawing attention to how much I struggled to focus on what I was supposed to be doing.

 

Have you ever seen one of those TV strongman competitions in which modern-day barbarian warriors compete to see who can pull some enormously heavy object with some unexpected body part that isn’t designed to do that? When it came to schoolwork, my mental process felt an awful lot like trying to pull a monster truck with my gritted teeth.

 

My report cards featured mostly Ds, with the occasional C to spice things up, and that was good enough for me. If I passed a class, even narrowly, I considered it a job well done. It never really occurred to me that I could or should ask for help. I took it as a given that I was just not good at school, and I thought if I approached my teachers about my struggles, that would only draw attention to my poor performance.

 

In addition to my academic issues, I was also a shy kid—which might surprise anyone who’s met me as an adult! I didn’t like to talk much in class, and I was never the type to raise my hand and volunteer. Instead, I always preferred to stand back and observe the action from a safe distance. For a lot of people who knew me then, the notion that I would ever be willing to put my own story out in the world in book form would have seemed crazy.

 

There was one person, however, who was always convinced that I had a book in me … and that was my father.

 

It started when I little more than a teenager. Whenever something unusual or interesting would happen to me, Dad would say something like, “I hope you’re taking notes for your book.” At first, I assumed he was joking—who would read my book?—but as I got older, I realized Dad was serious.

 

Once, early in my career as a photographer, I had to go to New York City for a job. It was an exciting opportunity, but I was nervous about trying to get around in NYC. I’m from Boston, Massachusetts so I’m no stranger to big cities, but I’ve never been much of a navigator, and New York City was unfamiliar to me.

 

This was also in the mid-nineties, well before GPS devices and apps were in common use, so I relied on the old-school version of those services: a skilled navigator riding shotgun. On this trip, that navigator was my dad, who would painstakingly plan our route on a paper map the night before and then give me directions as I drove.

 

As we made our way through the crowded city and I struggled to get around unexpected street closures, impassible traffic, and darting pedestrians without losing my way or missing our appointment, my dad chuckled and said once again, “This will be a great chapter for your book.”

 

Usually, when he said something like that, I just nodded and laughed. In that instant, though, I realized that he was serious. He really thought I was going to write a book, and that this part of my life would be an interesting inclusion. I wasn’t sure exactly how to feel about this epiphany—I certainly had no intention of writing a book at that time—but it definitely didn’t feel bad. Dad believed in me; he saw something in me that no one else did, and that made me wonder if I hadn’t been missing something as well.

 

I’ve always looked up to my dad. I’m the youngest of three, and for whatever reason, Dad and I always had an especially close relationship. We’re alike in many ways, but as I grew older, there was one central shared interest that cemented our bond: photography. Dad worked as a photographer for the Honeywell Corporation in Lawrence, Massachusetts, but it wasn’t just a job for him; it was also his primary hobby. He built a darkroom in the basement of our modest home in a suburban neighborhood in South Lawrence, Massachusetts, where he would develop his film and print photos, which he would hang there to dry.

 

It took years—decades, in the case of my father—but I finally believe the people who told me I had something to share with the world besides my photographs. But this book isn’t just about my experience as someone with ADHD, or as an entrepreneur, or even as a photographer. It’s a fusion of all those things, a collection of all the lessons I didn’t even realize I was learning, and those that I’ve only been able to understand in retrospect. It’s a book for anyone who dreams of something bigger and isn’t quite sure how to bridge the gap, and it’s a story about creative passion and making the thing you love work for you. And for anyone who struggles with endemic personal or institutional challenges, it is a message: you are not alone. I see you, I acknowledge your struggle, and I am here to tell you from personal experience that success, fulfillment, and even joy are possible for you.
