Andrew Chen for Maekan

Andrew is a good friend, the co-founder of 3Sixteen, and a partner at Self Edge in New York City. But before all that, he is a husband and a father to two beautiful boys, Logan and Hunter. I had the pleasure of spending the day with Andrew and his sons as they spent the morning with building blocks, books, and a trip to the museum. The boys were excited to spend the day with their dad. And I saw how thoughtful Andrew was in steering their bright-eyed curiosity through games and art. 

The story was for Maekan, a digital media company whose aim is on educating and empowering creative culture through audio and video-based storytelling. Their goal is to tell meaningful stories that rise above the low quality and ephemeral stuff that's in our culture and media.  It's a lofty goal that they have set for themselves but working with them on this story and hearing Alex and Eugene's ideas made me believe and want this type of storytelling to exist and thrive. 

I was fortunate enough to be a part of their beta launch and if you want to read more of Andrew's story, you can go here to read and sign up. These are some of my favorite photos from the day.
