About Me


Hi there and welcome! I'm a San Francisco photographer armed with a Nikon and a case of wanderlust. When I lost my job, I decided to embark on a journey, both literally and reflectively, to capture what people treasure most in life. Read more about my story here...

What We Treasure in India: My Goat

Children's hearts are so pure. They speak from a place that knows no words. While he spoke no English, and I spoke no Hindi, this little boy from a small village in the western desert of Rajasthan was more than pleased to show me his goats. He plopped the soft, baying babies on my lap and giggled with glee when I would kiss them on the nose. He would point to his eyes whenever he wanted to tell me something and although we couldn't speak, I felt like I had an entire conversation with him, just heart-to-heart, from one child to another...

What do you do that makes you feel like a child again?


What We Treasure in South Africa: Tea Bags?

"A woman is like a tea bag, you only know how strong she is when she is put in hot water."  Eleanor Roosevelt

Jill Heyes, founder of Original T-Bag Designs, is a strong woman of immense creativity and compassion. I felt fortunate to meet her, and her employees, at the Original T-bag Designs factory outside Cape Town, South Africa. Through the transformation of something as simple as an "old bag", both her life and the lives of the Imizamo Yethu are transformed forever. I hope her story inspires you to the possibilities within us all. 

Her story, as well as those of the Imizamo Yethu, is told directly in the video below. Warning: grab tissues!

For more information or to support Original T-Bag Designs, go to or Jill happily accepts donations of used tea bags. 


Bucket List: Sunrise on the Serengeti

There are somethings that just can't be described in words, and watching the sunrise on the Serengeti from a hot air balloon is one of them. I really treasure that I had the chance to partake in this once-in-a-life time experience. My only wish would have been to have my friends there to share it with me! Join me and watch the sunrise as the balloon takes off and the frolicking giraffes in the videos below.



What are some of your "bucket list" experiences?
