About me

Photographer & Publisher at and

The joy that really gets me out of bed in the morning is being able to help tell travel stories that matter. Stories that support local and small businesses, address social and racial justice, confirm indigenous sovereignty, activate for equality, that break down stereotypes and bring lesser-known destinations into the spotlight.

I've also been an on-camera host, a marketing consultant and a staff member on the #FSJet and other private jet experiences. I was born and raised in Vermont, graduated from high school in Michigan, attended college in Arkansas, I've lived in New York and California after being nomadic for four years. I've visited all 50 US states and I've worked in more than 60 countries on six continents for some of the most respected brands in travel and some of the most awarded campaigns in digital and social media. My expertise in mobile photography, photography and social media has led me to speak at conferences around the globe.

  • Feedback has been that yes it's helpful and while basic with minimal customization - it aids them in planning travel and when they are traveling. Making them worth my time to make, and embed in my blog posts.

  • I do. And so far I’ve never had any negative feedback on that. Only positive.
