Photo Journalist, RK Journeyman

I am enthusiastically documenting vibrant ideas and places in the world. I am focusing on educational travel and nurturing communities. "Come for the learning experience and stay longer." I encourage communities to focus on marketing to those with a direct interest in learning more about their best assets. The visitors will have a great experience beyond shopping and sightseeing and the community will enjoy sharing what they are proud of. Invite kindred spirits when you want them and provide workshops, exhibits, related book discussions, etc. to encourage them to stay longer.
