About Me: I purchased my first camera while studying English Literature at the University of Toronto and moonlighting as a bank manager (good for the pocketbook, not so good for the creative mojo). Since escaping The Bank in 2005, I’ve crisscrossed the globe, exploring and photographing 30 countries, including Iran, Mauritania and Bangladesh, as well as a few “disputed zones.”
I love the craft of telling stories–big and small–through words and my camera, capturing wonder and beauty in both the workaday world and the planet’s most exotic, faraway places. I’m on the road, learning from and laughing with the locals, digging the truck out of mud and hanging out in kitchens around the world.
I’d love to hear from you. Questions about travel, interest in photo usage, kind comments, kind feedback or lavish praise all welcome. And check back for updates on future projects.
