About Me


To pinhole the world!


I'm a pinhole photographer, daydreamer believer, world traveler, spontaneous giggler.

I live in Istanbul, Turkey, but haven't been able to find a way to get re-verified in Turkey... I do not live in Arizona anymore.


It would be something like: Follow your bliss. Live everyday in pure happiness. Find yourself in daydream often...

Just, you know, more eloquently written!

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm obsessed with Haruki Murakami right now... Once I read all his books, I'll find a new obsession.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've had photographs published in the Le Parisen. I've spooned tigers in Thailand. I've eaten live Octopus in South Korea. I've lived in 17 places on 3 continents. I've been traveling since I was 26 days old (first time on a plane).
