more about me

I am a traveling storyteller; a 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, renovating an old vintage trailer of some sort with my husband or climbing trees with our kids outdoors.
