About Me

Wander and Traveler...found that photography was a way to help these passions and after getting my degree in the subject; I began to use my photography for a way to travel. I shoot for Lonely Planet and Getty Images as well as various music, entertainment, and travel publications. I spend my time between home in Southern California and anywhere else in the world I have the opportunity to travel. Fell in love with traveling and the life of living in hostels about 12 years ago and never looked back. Maybe over 60 countries visited, many multiple times and still feel like I have not even scratched the surface of the travel experience. Lived and worked in London, Florence, New Zealand, Australia, Africa and Asia. Always looking for the next adventure...but in the meanwhile, I really enjoy the benefits of living in Southern California and do a lot of bartending while home which gives me an illusion of traveling as I get to meet so many new people and still get paid.
