I was born in the mountains of Alaska in 1984. I have always searched for the beauty of nature and the balance of light. Born into a traveling family I have no hometown but have friends world-wide. I went to high school in Bamberg, Germany and lived in a small village nearby known as Zapfendorf. Being an American in a foreign land I developed a fondness for language, culture, and art. I Graduated from Kansas State University in 2008 with a B.S. of Cultural Anthropology and a secondary major in International Studies. Since graduation I have been traveling the planet looking for, nature, art, amazing people, and rich stories.
