A comfortable and modern nomad who values knowledge from direct experience. Travel allows people to opportunity to grow, challenge themselves and adapt to the world around them. My love for travel journalism and photography started when I was fourteen and my parents bought me my first DSLR camera. When I hold a camera, I can go anywhere. It was my shield that allowed me to perceive the world through child's eyes, everything new and in the moment. I have lived in Indianapolis, Miami, Los Angeles, Boston and Seattle and value a global citizen's outlook on the world. Aside from photography and travel, humanitarian work and giving back is the fluid of my life. The world often calls for society to lend a hand, and it is not because most do not lend, but rather because few lend two that we progress as a whole. I am an avid scuba diving, bungee jumper, ski diver, adrenaline junkie. Just living life against the stream and enjoying whatever life unfolds.
