cultural photographer, author, travel writer, tour guide
I am currently an experiential tour guide with my own business, Puerto Vallarta Walking Tours. The last ten years I have aimed to immerse my clients in the local culture while they learn about the history, architecture, food, and folkart of Mexico. Meeting the artisans and merchants has lent a depth to what I offer and inspired my passion as a freelance cultural photographer and writer focusing on the people I know.
I have taken this passion on the road with me as I travel to other countries. My stories and photography are a combination of personal connections, friendships, interviews, and conversations with people, their work, and their contributions to their cultures.
My work has been published locally and internationally including Great Escapes Publishing (a subsidiary of International Living Magazine), The Yucatan Times, and MexiGo Canadian Travel magazine. I have written and self-published two guidebooks for tourists to Vallarta. I have also been a speaker and travel location photographer for Great Escapes Publishing.
When not giving walking tours, I work remotely as a freelance photographer and writer.
