I'm a photojournalist, former Boston Globe staff photographer and now a freelance for educational media (my website: (website hidden)). My wife Mara Casey teaches college English in Long Beach, CA. Taking pictures anywhere we go is second nature. When we travel we want to stay with local people who are good company instead of in impersonal hotels. We're urban people -- I'm a New Yorker, Mara's from Boston -- and cities are our preferred destinations for museums, theatre, local architecture, long walks, interesting food and enjoyable conversation on many subjects.
