I am a photographer by trade, a web designer by day and a traveller at heart. I love to travel and capture life with my camera. My passion is to bring the world to those who have not or have yet the opportunity to explore the depths of our beautiful world. I have been fortunate over the years, and had the opportunity to call not just my native US home, but Bermuda and England home as well. These days you'll find me primarily working as a web developer/designer, I spend most my days in a cubicle reading other peoples blogs and drooling over other people's images!
Part of me dreams of the nomadic lifestyle, however I am not sure I am willing to give up the comforts of having my own apartment, car and my computer (proudly self built <— sort of a geek!) to travel full time. Maybe it is fear, and if that is the case, I hope I eventually gain the courage. Maybe I am looking for just the right travel partner, as much as I enjoy travelling alone, I prefer company. Maybe I was not born to be a nomad; if that is so, that's okay! For now, I travel when I can for as long as I can get away. I work for a great company, however alternative work schedules and working remotely is not an option. Fortunately they haven't fired me for taking off extended periods of time since I have been with them!
I don't have a bucket list. There are a few things I would like to do before I die, but I truly feel that if it's meant to be, it will be, if it's not, I wont lose sleep over it. If I want it that badly, I will find a way to make it happen. On my first day of photography school, I stood in front of my instructors and fellow students and proclaimed that I wanted to make coffee table books of the places I have been and the adventures I have experienced. I must say, that my instructors weren't fans of this idea, and every time they marked me down because my image looked "too much like a post card", i thought to myself, no one cares about grades, but thanks for the compliment! Since those days of being a poor university student living abroad and spending the money I didn't have, I have allowed myself to wander down other paths that has led me away from photography on a daily basis. So in order to get closer to making those coffee table books, I figure I could start with a blog.
Tomorrow's coffee table books might even be described as a blog read on one's tablet or other futuristic device, so it's as good of a place as any. I have always inspired to bring the world to my readers who might not have the ability to travel as far and wide, or have had similar or slightly different experiences and interested in swapping war stories, or those looking for new adventures! And maybe, over time, I will be able offer a few words of advise and suggestions about what I have learned on my travels over the years, as I have learned so much from so many others before and around me.
Thanks for taking the time and visiting my site! Cheers.
