Week In-stagram Review Walks of New York

5 Comments 05 December 2014

I have a bad case of withdrawal from the warm beachy weather I left in Sri Lanka!  I’m back in NYC for a short time and decided my cure for chilly jet lag would be to hit the cold streets of New York head on. I had a friend in town who was a first [...]

America, Inside My Head

In the Path of Destruction

6 Comments 28 August 2014

We took a left off of highway 15 and drove through the north side of town. The familiar old weathered homes were there as usual. In desperate need of paint, love, and care I couldn’t help but wonder if people were cooking up meth in those homes in this small village town in Nebraska. My [...]

1 Comment 24 April 2014

I walked into base camp covered in mud and sweat, carrying my camera and backpack. I must have looked exhausted to those around me as they stared at me bit too long. I couldn’t wait to clean up, get some food, and lay down to assess the day and fall into a deep, deserved sleep. [...]

Napali Coast by Air and Sea

10 Comments 22 April 2014

How do you get to see the most beautiful coastline in the United States when there are no roads to get there? You’ve got 3 options – hike in, boat in, or fly in. On my recent trip to Kauai surprisingly I passed on the first option and instead visited the Napali Coast by air [...]
