About Me

I’m an architect, traveler, photographer, and cultural chameleon.  I decided when I was fifteen years old that I wanted to learn everything there is to learn and travel the world seeing great art, architecture, nature – and learn the cultures, ideas, and religions of the local people.  I had no idea how much information there is to learn!  Needless to say, high school was extremely frustrating.  As a teenager, I tried to make up for the failings of my high school by spending endless hours at the local library and the local university library.  After graduating from high school, I spent six years full time getting my bachelor’s degree.  My funding was cut off after six years, forcing me to graduate.  But I continued my education by taking evening classes, and continuing to read, saving money and making my first solo trip to Europe in 2001.
