My photo essays capture the essence of places. My perspective—inspired by artisans through the lens of a traveler—discovers a region’s aspects and details focused on architecture, culture, and food to create visual and written work.

Recording the world in a frame and a tale.

I discover beauty and details in the world through my lens. My visual and written compositions aim to expand our awareness and identify the details that make places unique. My eye is fueled by an intention to discover, then inspire.

I tell about the world—moments in places often created by civilizations over millennia, the architecture, the food, the culture—and provide resources with a hope to inspire appreciation and understanding for our multi-faceted world. A curious and passionate traveler, I seek to connect with readers, to teach, to expand perspectives, and to encourage responsible travel.

My professional design and travel experience influence my perspective, while my keen appreciation for details, character, and style allows me to see what makes places special and beautiful. 

Let’s discover beautiful places and details.

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
