I’ve been lucky that my career field affords me tremendous opportunity to live in foreign countries and experience wide ranging travel and new cultures. Most of my travel has been alone, and I’ve gotten very comfortable traveling by myself, and thankfully haven’t experienced any issues. The more I travel, the more I fully appreciate how much beauty there is in this world and want to capture that in stories and in pictures. When I’m not working or traveling, I enjoy reading books, watching movies, cooking viewing art and making art. I enjoy different art museums and exhibitions, both classic and modern. I enjoy making glass art, and am branching out into pastel and colored pencils. I find that my greatest inspiration is just the enormous beauty around us and in my travels.
