#HiHaveYouMet @justin11511? He’s one of the most creative, funniest, nicest, and tatted up grammers here in DC. Passing up on an opportunity to shoot with Justin is like passing up on a winning lottery ticket! Proud to be #BrothersInGram with this guy!  #IGDCFAMILY #makeportraitsnotwar  (at Georgetown Cupcake)

POST 2/2 - What do you do when ice cream is stubborn and won’t melt? You take a road flare to it! My second submission for the @instagram WHP. #WHPTimeLapse // SN- shoutout to @jasonhreinhart for the Facebook status about this. 😂😂 (at Joint Base Andrews)

POST 1/2! My submission for the @instagram Weekend Hashtag Project. My question to you is, What happens when an ice cream wants to be stubborn and not melt?…. The answer is in my next post! #WHPTimeLapse (at Joint Base Andrews)

"There’s only one thing I hate more than lying. Skim milk, which is water that’s lying about being milk" #WeGramThisTown #igdc (at Lincoln Memorial)
"When people get a little too chummy with me, I like to call them by the wrong name to let them know I don’t really care about them."

SARTORIAL SERIES ENTRY #2 - “THE VISIONARY”.
-A little about yourself.
My name is Cedric Quick. I’ve been called an extremist because of my passion to be number 1 and give all I have to whatever my interest is at the time. The problem is those interests change and I’ve become a jack of all trade. I’m still searching for the one thing that I will master and never shy away from.
I’m a loving father and husband that enjoys the journeys and lessons of life.  I believe everyday is an opportunity to get better and make my family proud.  FOE

-What pushed you to start growing and maintaining your beard? 
First off, my father rocked the beard.  I’ve always wanted to let it grow and see where it goes, but I was concerned about how I would be perceived.  Then I said f**k it…
-Who inspires you to be great?
Again, my family and friends inspire me to be and do more than anyone ever imagined. 

-What advice can you give anyone who’s trying to grow or keep their beard healthy? 
Have favorable genetics, stop putting blades to it, and “Mane The F*** UP”

-What’s one quote that you live by daily? 
"Be yourself  #nuffsaid"

Another personal favorite quote:  “Aint no fun when the rabbit got the gun”
