FUELED BY AN ENDLESS CURIOSITY FOR THIS WILD WORLD & THE THRILL OF WAKING UP IN AN UNFAMILIAR PLACE
Inspired by the fleeting moments that occupy the passage of a day, through my images I seek to tell the stories and ideas that unfold around and within me.
The need to travel was instilled in me at a young age. I am grateful to have grown up in a family of artists and travelers and learn the meaning of diversity and the importance of curiosity and adventure. Before I learned how to take a photograph, I learned how to be a traveler. Travel is when I am most engaged, most inspired and most challenged. Learning bits of a new language and culture, getting lost in winding cobblestone streets or narrow dirt paths, meeting fellow travelers or local people, and taking in every element of every moment - sights, smells, sounds and feelings - this is when I am most alive. The camera allows me to capture and share this feeling. Collect moments, not things.
I am the Programs Director at The Lucie Foundation, the non-profit charitable organization dedicated to championing photography.
