if you were a vespa, what color would you be…in a hexadecimal code?
I’m torn between #34bfc4 and #f31e64.
on a road trip, are most of your clothes in suitcase, a moving box, or a laundry basket?

describe your nearest “getaway spot.”
I “got away” when I moved to Italy. So when I need to get awayaway I enjoy going to a local bar that serves beer and plays cheesy American Pop. Hearing Beyonce pleading for someone to put a RING ON IT … takes me “home.”

South Africa! I want to frolic with the meerkats, swim with the gazelle and climb trees while I beat my chest.
the longest road trip you’ve taken … solo or with a road trip buddy?
Los Angeles to Seattle. It was an act of God that I made it over the Shasta at midnight with a high grade fever, in the Snow!
when visiting a new city, what intangible items are you hoping to capture?
The spirit of its people.

describe how you feel when you’re alone with your camera and in a new location.
I’m usually a bit overwhelmed. I take it all in and shoot very little unless I know I won’t be coming back for awhile. I love to shoot new places but I want to see and experience the visual through my heart first.
what inspires you to take the next step by photographing, writing, or composing a song about the area you’re in?
My emotions, friends, and the desire to share as much as i possibly can with my family back home.
