more about me

I am a traveling STORYTELLER photographer & humanitarian telling epic life stories around the globe. We are based out of Denver, Kansas City or wherever you're from.  proving you can be both a goofball & hopeless romantic, if not adventuring, you can find me cuddling with my fur babies on the couch with my laptop & a glass of milk or renovating an old vintage trailer of some sort with
my husband.
