Drew Cutting

Drew Cutting

I'm a 20 year old kid from West Hartford, Connecticut who loves dance music and visual arts. I got into EDM back in early high school and began attending concerts ("raves") whenever I could. As an avid show-goer, I took on concert promotion -- selling tickets, handing out flyers, etc. I wanted to share my passion with my friends so that they could experience what I found to be so magical. The positive vibes, immense energy, and spectacular production that these concerts provided inspired me to pick up photography and capture amazing moments to share with others so they can look back and say:

"I had the time of my life."
