"Not all those who wonder are lost"  J. R. R. Tolkien

where it all started...

I was born and raised in a small Amish town called Nappanee, Indiana where the farmers are many and the stop lights are few.

I was very involved in the arts growing up, playing around with layouts and photography, so it's no surprise I went to school for art. I graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a degree in Visual Communications in 2009 and have been doing freelance work since 2005. 

I've always had an affinity for travel and exploring other cultures, which led me to moving overseas in 2011. I worked for a non-profit with a focus on studying language and culture, eventually leading to a position of using my skills in design and photography. I love what I do and I love living in other places, even if that means my heart has been split up between the multiple countries.
