Caleb and I have never met in person, but the universe brought him into my journey because he has a big heart. Caleb answered a Craigslist ad for a videographer when I was working with the non-profit, Phoenix of New Orleans. We were trying to create a video for our landing page and needed someone who could help us out. Caleb responded and the rest is history.
From the moment we began working together I noticed he was always so willing and ready to do anything he could to make our video a success. He did a great job! We have kept in touch via Facebook ever since. I hope to be able to meet him in person someday and shake his hand for the great work he did, selflessly.
Caleb is a videographer and photographer who was born in Santa Monica. He has lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana ever since he was 15 because that was his father’s hometown. He owns the company, R.E.V.A.M.P, which is a digital arts and media company that specializes in videography, photography, digital designs, ad campaigns and electronic press kits. This is his first business venture.
When asked what he is passionate about, it wasn’t a surprised when he answered, “Taking pictured. It makes me feel alive. I believe great shots have great depth. They are multi-dimensional and provide more than what meets the eye. They can trigger emotion, serve as a memory aid, or tell a story. They are priceless and it is my job to capture the essence and build a gallery of priceless moments.”
Though photography is his passion, when asked about what he was really proud of Caleb said, “I am proud of my family. I feel they have instilled in me great values and a strong work ethic that has helped mold me into the man I am today.”
When I asked Caleb why people should know about him he said, “People should know about me because I am an independent artist on the rise and I feel that it is my calling to be a blessing for others and utilize my talents to help uplift others. I want to create opportunities for those who have none and feel life is hopeless. I want them to know that they are not crazy or alone.”
I believe the universe puts all the right people in your path and you either learn from them or teach them. I feel Caleb was sent by my higher power to be a lesson of giving. Caleb and I have a mutual respect for each other. He is another young, intelligent, and giving artist out there influencing the world. He gives me a lot of hope that our world is in great hands in the future.
I believe at my core that, “A good person can have a positive and infectious effect on way more people than a lousy one. It’s just that most people have been raised to embrace the misery. I want everyone to know that you can learn to embrace the beautiful things in life much more. Caleb, keep on creating and changing the world and “Thank You” for the kind words and everything you did to help get NOLA a little closer to being restored.”

Being a visionary/revolutionary who made a difference in the world and helped others to succeed.
What one subject would you add to high school curriculums?
If we are filled with an infinite amount of love, why do we say we fall out of love? What’s the difference between being in love and love?
I think as we grow older and have different experiences our understanding of people, hobbies or situations evolve and other things fill that void of something we once loved. Being in love is a romantic obsession rather it be a person or item etc. I think having a love for someone never dies even if you begin to hate something I think having a love for someone or something never dies even if you begin to hate it because hate comes from a place of love.
