a b o u t   n a t h a n i e l

My name is Nathaniel, a Chicago-based creative professional, iced chai aficionado, learned home baker & person who stutters.

By day, I work as a Marketing Manager at The Butter Book, an e-learning platform/community for the avid home baker, and by night, I'm a commercial food, portrait & lifestyle photographer/videographer. 

At the age of 18, I fell in love with the art of cooking/baking. At 19, I discovered a passion for photography. Today, I strive to capture moments through the lens of food, travel, and hospitality. 

I have worked with numerous brands including Eggland's Best Eggs, Aberlour Scotch Whiskey, Aunt Millie's Bread, Colavita Olive Oil, & La Colombe Coffee.  

Using the platform as a culture guide, I give my viewers a behind-the-scenes look into my daily life, travels, cultural finds, and current projects.
