Famous Footwear // Step Forward

Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.
— Oprah Winfrey

I believe in finding a personal connection to the work I take on because the most personal work always ends up being the best work. I recognized in each of these stories, I had the chance to celebrate a worldview that has shaped my life.

I am who I am because of the steps forward the women in my life have taken — my wife most of all.

To date, we have shot eight Step Forward stories, each a unique and remarkable example of shedding the shackles of expectation, circumstance and doubt in order step forward into something better.

We are continually looking for new stories to tell, so if you know a woman whose story needs to be told, please send me an email.
