About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Life is short. Saturate it with experiences, captivating people and winding roads

ABOUT ME

Ohio born, travel savvy photographer. I'd been well traveled at a young age because of my parents. One of my favorite things to do was talk to people on planes. Inspired each time, I continued travel around the states, visiting people again and again as they traveled/moved.

In 2012, I ventured around the world for 6 months (http://the-wanderlustproject.tumblr.com/). In 2013, I drove to CA where I have been since. Doing photography for my living.

At this point I don't really feel like I've left home when I travel. Experiences are much better shared with people along the way.

PHILOSOPHY

Live in harmony wherever you roam. Allow others to be free around you.
