"While growing up, my father’s work kept our family moving to new locations every three to five years. By the time I graduated from university, I had moved 13 times, including to locations in four states and three countries. I’ve worked as a Honolulu-based flight attendant for Pan Am airlines, where I visited India, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan, Guam and Philippines; an intercultural communications consultant and trainer in Osaka, Japan; and a Foreign Service Officer for the U.S. Department of State, where I served in Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iraq, Mexico and Nigeria. My personal travel further includes Israel, Jordan, Dubai, South Africa, England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Czech Republic. I’ve created images in most of these places, and look forward to returning to the UK, France, Spain and Portugal in 2019 and 2020 to continue my photographic journey."
