A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a mid-western gal (from Michigan to be exact) at heart who considers herself a New York native after living over 20+ years in Manhattan. In 2018, I left a long, successful career in fashion, entertainment, and media Communications to follow my passion for photography and travel full-time. Communications was an exciting, engaging career until it wasn’t.
My new chapter has afforded me some incredible experiences around the world. I’ve danced with Kazakh Nomads in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia, shared Chi-cha with Quechua families in Peru, and faced a polar bear in Manitoba. I’ve seen 500K King penguins in Antarctica and nearly the same amount of Sandhill Cranes in Nebraska. I love photographing remote destinations, indigenous cultures, and an exhaustive list of wildlife. While there have been plenty of bumpy roads along the way, it’s all been worth it.
Over the years, I’ve created editorial content (writing, photos, both) for major publications such as Newsweek, AFAR, The Telegraph, The Globe & Mail, and sponsored content for clients such as Adobe, Aurora Expeditions, and the Washington Post Creative Group
THE INSATIABLE TRAVELER
I created The Insatiable Traveler because I love world travel and I wanted to share my experiences and the lessons I’ve learned so you can make the absolute most of your journeys.
I photograph and write about amazing (often remote) destinations, exciting excursions, interesting cultures, nature and wildlife. Not to mention travel and photography tips. My hope is my photos and tales will inspire you to seek adventure (however you define it), and connect with the people and places you visit.
