“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living."
- Miriam Beard
WITH EVERY ADVENTURE COMES A STORY
I must have been in middle school when I asked my parents to buy me my very first camera. Photography has always been a passion of mine so you'll hardly find me without my camera.
Growing up on the South Shore of Massachusetts, I enjoyed photographing scenic beaches, nature, my family, and friends.
Four years attending Syracuse University offered me a world of possibilities, and while I probably enjoyed my Black & White Film Photography class the most, I ultimately graduated with a B.S. in Biology and double minors in Neuroscience and Psychology.
I graduated during the economic crisis of 2009, and had realized that I wouldn't be happy working in a lab, so I was fortunate enough to land a job in customer service in the travel industry. This job also afforded me tremendous travel opportunities, exploring - and photographing - more of the world than I ever imagined I would see. During my 8 year tenure there I had a variety of roles, from analytics to creative marketing and I had time to consider what I enjoyed doing the most.
When I was finally ready for a career change, I knew the small photography side business I had been doing in my spare time was ready to become something more well known. With the support of another passion - food, I'm able to balance a lifestyle of part-time photographer and part-time food tour guide here in Boston.
