I am originally from New Orleans, but have lived in New Mexico, New York and now Seattle. When I visit a new place I have two things I must do: master the public transit system and find good cemeteries. The first probably doesn't need much explanation, but the second, maybe a little. I got my degree in Photography and being from New Orleans the first series of work that I did was on the beautiful cemeteries there and I have just continued this with every new city I visit.
Personality wise, I tend to be pretty laid-back and quiet. I am an only child so I am perfectly happy to go off exploring on my own and just get lost in a city. I try to spend at least a week at a destination because one or two days just isn't enough to get an sense of a place. I like to do a little planning and then fill in the free time with whatever I stumble upon. I am a sucker for museums, chachkies and hole in the wall restaurants that always seem to serve the best food in the city.
