“If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.”


At 18 two thirds of my life had been spent in class rooms, I had no interest in continuing that trajectory. I was beyond lucky to have Cornelius Bull (founder of Interim Programs) enter my life. He supported me in taking a year off when I graduated from High School. I didn’t know what it would look like but I was ready to start exploring. He helped me find a family to live with in Paris, enrolled me in an intensive language program, and then connected me to Parsons School of Design in Paris. This connection = darkroom access. :-) The following images were taken that year. My class room was along The Seine, in Venice for Carnival, and in West Berlin less than 24 hours after Brandenburg Gate was opened.



West Berlin


the first and longest-running independent gap year counseling organization in the United States. At Interim we have always believed that the process of personal expansion and creative risk-taking is relevant to people of all ages, at any stage of life. Through our own personal explorations and professional experiences, our team knows first-hand that the perspective, knowledge, and skills gained through a well-planned gap year are critical to one's growth and identity, and as such are a tremendous complement to further personal, academic, and career pursuits.

Unsettled is a global travel community for those who embrace uncertainty and value meaningful human connection. Who believe that feeling a little bit “unsettled” is a positive impulse for change, innovation, and discovery in our lives. I spent a month in Barcelona with 25 others from around the globe. We worked together, inspired each other, and truly got to know Barcelona. I love having this opportunity as an adult. Currently Marrakech and Lebanon are on my list !



Unsettled opportunities

I truly have a love of travel, and thanks to Steller I have an incredible way to tell my stories and share my experiences. Next week I’ll be joining Steller at the SAGC event at HINYC.

Study Abroad & Global Citizen

“The collective goal in the exchange and travel industry is to help young people find life-changing international experiences. Experiences that broaden their horizons and help them build key global workforce skills.” SBGC



The InterExchange Foundation supports young Americans with a passion for improving the world. Established in 2007, the Foundation provides grants to young Americans who wish to participate in meaningful projects abroad and to share their experiences in order to further international understanding and promote cultural awareness.

The HI New York City hostel is the kind of hostel travelers dream about. Whether you're traveling solo or in a group, we'll have you mixing and mingling with people from different places and cultures before you even walk out our doors. Our free, volunteer-led tours are the best of any hostel in New York, and our enormous outdoor patio will be a welcome retreat after a long day of exploring. Want to try a slice of New York-style pizza or get a great view of the Statue of Liberty for free? Ask our awesome staff. They know more tips and tricks about this city than you can imagine.

I am a traveler and a photographer. I am the happiest when I am on the streets discovering new places, connecting with people and taking the time to absorb what’s around me. My love of photography fuels my creativity and my sense of adventure. It is through this medium that I create connections and understandings of new places, new people, and new cultures. My creative drive has truly shaped who I am, I can’t imagine a life without travel.
