    Episode 26 ft. Eric Inasi & Tagwa Moyo

    In a point of history where everyone who has access to a smartphone can technically consider themselves a photographer, Eric Inasi and Tagwa Moyo are two Canadian creatives who continue to redefine the standard within digital photography. Two of their biggest contributions to the Culture (to date!) are Shutter Hoops Media Group, documenting High School Basketball within British Columbia, and Darby Magazine, documenting soccer within North America.   

    Eric and Tagwa join Gabe to discuss their respective relationships with their camera, navigating feedback to continually get better at their craft, what it means to “create art, not content,” and everything in between.

    Guest bios: 

    Eric Inasi was born and raised in the city of Vancouver, BC. His photography is shaped by the beautiful scenery and sports he has immersed himself with throughout the years. Capturing unique moments while creating memorable experiences is what Eric hopes to accomplish through his imagery. Eric can be found on Instagram @EricInasi, and his website: https://ericinasi.ca​.   

    Tagwa Moyo is a visual storyteller based out of Vancouver and Toronto. After being gifted his first camera in high school he slowly became more and more drawn to learning how to tell stories visually through his camera. Photography is a vehicle for Tagwa to combine his love for storytelling and sports. Tagwa aims to make sense of the chaos, to seek out that moment of peace on the field or that small burst of excitement that can resonate with anyone. You can find him on Instagram @Shuttersworth, and his website: https://www.shuttersworth.com/​.

    Episode 23 ft. Bradley Braich

    Episode 23 ft. Bradley Braich

    Bradley Braich was one of the top basketball players in British Columbia of his senior year of high school at Yale Secondary School (2017-18). During that season, Bradley broke his school's single-game scoring record with 66 points - a record previously held by his brother, Riley. Bradley navigated mental illness - obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety and depression - all throughout high school, and since graduating has made it his mission to leave a legacy that is "bigger than basketball." ⁣

    I am grateful for Bradley's articulacy, courage and openness in one of the most mutually-vulnerable  conversations I have ever been a part of. This is Bradley Braich's story, and he's just getting started. ⁣

    Please enjoy this episode! 🤞🧘‍♂️⁣

Amy has spent the better part of the last ten years living and travelling overseas pursuing a career in the performing arts, while also accruing her fitness credentials. ⁣

    In 2018, Kobe Bryant visited Andrew Ntzouras' (@_Ntzy_) Gr. 4 Classroom as Bryant had caught wind that Andrew designed a curriculum surrounding 'the Punies' - a podcast produced by Bryant and his team at Granity Studios (@Granity).⁣

    ⁣With the first-ever anniversary of Bryant's passing around the corner, Andrew joins Gabe (@GaberInc) to discuss the memories of that day, the importance of retaining the #MambaMentality, as well as various strategies that he has found helpful in empowering young people through his career in education thus far. ⁣

    ⁣Andrew Ntzouras has served as a public-school teacher and a thought-leader in the field of education. He began his career in teaching after earning his BA in History and Political Science and Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential from Vanguard University of Southern California, Andrew earned his M. Ed. with a focus on curriculum design, assessment, and instruction. Currently, Andrew works for the Orange County Department of Education creating content to support Social-Emotional Learning and Inclusive Academic Instruction. Andrew also serves as an adjunct professor at Vanguard University, where his portfolio includes teaching a course based on a book he co-authored with two others teachers, 'the Show Matters.' ⁣

    ⁣Both Andrew and Gabe share Kobe's mission statement that "the most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.”⁣
