Photographer, graphic designer, adventurer, writer and creative professional. I'm forever a student, lover of reading, learning, music, theater, audio and recording arts, stage craft, travel, camping, mentoring and teaching.
I enjoy all kinds of travel but mostly more intimate travel where I can stay near the locals and see the culture and lifestyles they lead away from the tourism. But once in a while a great resort can be a nice place to use as a base to travel and explore an area too.
I have a hard time not turning every trip into a photo project and have to remind myself that others traveling with me don't want to spend hours waiting for good light, getting up early to beat the sunrise, staying out late for night photography and editing images and getting a little sleep in the middle of the day. This is good, it makes me manage my photography and balance my explorations and adventures to make them more meaningful.
