I have been lucky enough to travel the world. I've been a few feet from Fidel Castro in Havana, shared a cup of coffee with farmers in Nicaragua, danced and napped on the Taj Mahal, raced through the streets of Morocco, hiked the Himalayas, sat in silence in Nelson Mandela's cell on Robben Island, and sang loudly and danced in celebration at a school groundbreak in Malawi.
These days, I also work for buildOn, a non-profit with the mission to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education. Essentially, I help high school students, university students, corporate groups, and community members sponsor the construction of a primary school in a developing country and travel to immerse themselves in the culture and work alongside the community that will benefit from the education that school will provide (let me know if you're interested).
In all these adventures and misadventures, I have learned more about the beauty in the interactions of people. Friends, family, loved ones, and community. There are moments within these interactions that have a depth and memory that is difficult and yet possible to capture. Regardless of where you are in the world and who you surround yourself with, I will work extremely hard to capture those for you.
