The world we live in is so vast and varied. Every country I travel to and every culture I encounter, I am blown away by how awesome our planet is. I have pilgrimaged with Chinese monks, attended a coming of age ceremony in the mountains of Nepal, danced with Masai tribes in Kenya, bought vegetables at a floating market in Vietnam, joined in on the most colorful wedding in India, and witnessed traditional blanket weaving in Ecuador. Though we are all human, sharing the same physical and emotional needs, culture has shaped so much of the way we love our lives. There is nothing more valuable and humbling than to experience these unique lifestyles all over the world. My job is to capture and preserve these cultural wonders to share and celebrate our differences.
