Mike Brown

Awarded 2020

Houston-native & Seattle-transplant content creator, Mike Brown, has been living the #vanlife traveling cross-country all while capturing America’s iconic landscapes.

Known as Nomad Pixels, his art embodies the strenuous self-journey he’s embarked – off the beaten path, non-traditional, with an adventure always at hand. The ultimate decision to be nomadic stemmed from a passion to live life to the fullest, unsatisfied with the regular status quo.

His days spent traveling in a van, and not depending on a regular 9-to-5 for money or happiness, has emphasized the sacredness of interpersonal relationships and his passion to inspire others.

Mike’s pursuit of art, philanthropy and love come from the mental freedom that this journey has brought on. This is the life he continues to promote and hopefully inspire others to live. With over 15 years of experience in getting the shot, Mike is formally educated yet experientially trained and dedicated to the uniqueness of each image.
