sonder – n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.

Everyone has a story to tell; stories can be found anywhere and at any time. Traveling has been a big part of unlocking these stories for myself. Every place I have traveled has all inspired me to put words on the page, to raise up my camera, to document what I have seen. I continue to travel, I continue to see, and I continue to create.
