I’m a travel photographer and journalist from a small town in Canada called Rocky Mountain House. After completing degrees in Political Science and Geography in 2008 I headed to South America to take a job that paid me only $50 a week, but allowed me to travel. I knew within 3 days of arriving in South America that I’d never stop traveling, that I needed to find a way to meld travel into my career, no matter what it took.

Over 5 years later now, I’ve visited around 80 countries on 6 different continents. I’ve done some crazy things like drive a $600 scooter down the west side of Africa. I’ve done some amazing things, as well. I count my blessings that I’m able to live this lifestyle.

In the 5 years since I’ve engaged in the life of a travel photographer and journalist my work has been in a number of major publications such as The Guardian. My travels themselves have also been featured in various major media outlets such as the BBC, National Geographic Traveler, and others.

I have no intention of slowing down. So if you like traveling and photos, follow my blog
