WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
The land of enchantment. I grew up in a remote town 20 miles outside the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
WHAT’S THE BEST PLACE YOU HAVE EVER VISITED?
It depends on what you are looking for -
I circumnavigated the ring road around the entire island of Iceland a few years back. The rolling hills, cliffs, waterfalls, geysers, and volcanoes were so untouched and staggering in their beauty.
Cambodia was an amazing place to see culturally. The people there are resilient and appreciative of the simple things in life.
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT?
Anywhere with good Mexican food. Cocina Azul is a small restaurant that I went to growing up. I still dream of the rich queso and creamy green chile chicken enchiladas.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY?
Backpacking encompasses many of the outdoor activities that I enjoy. There’s nothing more rewarding than hiking for miles to a remote destination to fall asleep in a hammock under the stars.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
I am passionate about travel, photography, and art. I like to experiment using different mediums to express a point of view or idea. Photography allows me to capture stories of people and geographical locations in a single frame. I see travel as an important method for personal growth; going to unfamiliar places and being uncomfortable is a great way to challenge your perception of the world
