The Moments In-Between

The first half of this year was such an exhausting whirlwind. I was all over the planet, and didn’t really stop to take a breath until September hit. Autumn, for me, was a chance to appreciate the monotony and stability that come with routine — things I typically take for granted. I cooked more, I spent […]

Myanmar Part 3: the Shan State

If you haven’t read them yet, part one is here, and part two is here. We arrived in Pyin Oo Lwin early in the morning.

2014

2014 was an adventure and a half. All the drives and the plane rides and photoshoots and concerts and good people made it one of the best yet. I hope 2015 brings the same, and then some. Some things I did and learned and took photos of are below. January Experienced what was probably the most […]

The best articles I read in 2014

This was a damn good year for internet writing. I found some great reads on my favorite news outlets and through Twitter, as usual, but Medium also became one of my favorite places to gain some insight about how others view the world. Long story short, I found no shortage of thought-provoking pieces to read this year. In […]
