I'm an avid photographer living in San Francisco. Exploring new places both in my own city and elsewhere is an essential part of life for me. From Charlotte, NC (my birthplace) to my current locale, San Francisco, I've spent time walking the city streets seeking out urban art, murals, sculpture, local bookstores, parks, bakeries, restaurants, modern architecture, and the tastiest ice cream shops. When I travel to a new place (or even revisit a place I've been before), I love finding out from locals I know or meet what they recommend to visitors as an experience of their city/town/area that is not to be missed. Everywhere I go, I always remain open to the unexpected discoveries in the midst of traveling...and I'm always on the lookout for traditional Breton buckwheat crepes and stellar chocolate.
