It was said that 2013 marked a year where we would witness new levels of consciousness and awareness. It was also called the year of creativity. Bearing this in mind, and because of so many changes in my personal and professional life, a complete redesign and re-evaluation of my work and life pursuits seemed eminent in 2014 … in fact, there really wasn’t much choice in the matter as these creative pursuits presented themselves to me over and over again. Thoughts, ideas, images, experiences were screaming to be told. I’m thinking maybe you feel the same way.

I’ve traveled quite a journey in the last eighteen months. I now make my home in Göteborg, Sweden and am experiencing a whole new lifestyle. While there is a huge learning curve still ahead of me, it seems like this was the place I was always meant to call home.

It is now time to continue the journey. This site will serve as a reflection of my wanderings through a new cultural world. It is a place where I can now reflect on the past and look to the future. I am redesigning myself.

Here I will explore new ideas, art venues, current events, cultural forays, and visual documentations. I am a communicator and I wish to share these things with you.  I am a writer, photographer and designer. I also invite you to visit my other blog, 2Sweden4Love.com, where I write about the  experiences of being an expat in Sweden.

 A Bit About Work 

I am available for writing assignments for both print and online publications, editorial, copy-writing, content development and marketing.  I seek to expand my photography into various Scandinavian, European, and US markets thus opening up my work to a more international audience. Combining my photography with written copy, I have found that my publishers have appreciated my ability to combine words and images to create complete and compelling stories. I am available for work for travel, cultural, and current event formats and publications.  I also look for representation in galleries, participatory installations and shows. You can find my photography portfolio here. Take a look at the nice things people have said about my work. Contact Me.

I have written for the following publications and organizations:
Spoon – It’s a content agency!
The Local (Sweden)
INK publications
ArtScope Magazine
The New Haven Art Council
AIGA Connecticut- the professional association for design.
