*seeking writer for an official-sounding third-person “about me”
My name is Neave (like Leave). I picked up a camera late 2011, and before that, I went to a tech school in Downtown Los Angeles and got an AA in Graphic Design with an emphasis on branding. Didn’t do much with it as far as a career goes, but I can remove a pimple from a face.
Before that, I attended a bunch of different city colleges trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life (because you need to figure out what to do with the rest of your life in your early twenties), eventually dropped out and spent most of my time on the internet. This was around 2007-2008 where social media was becoming a thing, and that is where I realized I have a love for visual arts (through scrolling Myspace and then Tumblr endlessly).
Before all of that I was half sperm half egg; came together as one, while Leo was in Saturn (are you still reading this?). I was born in Redondo Beach in 1985. At the age of four my parents and I moved to Tehran, where I spent the 90’s in Iran (imagine that). At the age of 16 I moved back to the suburbs of LA and became a fan of Avril Lavigne.
In 2018 I self-published a coffee table book called Private Collection.
“Challenging and beautiful” -my yelp review of that experience.
Right now, being 2019, I’m working on a photography handbook called Photo Zero and enjoying burritos. Big fan.
