The month of April seemed to fly by! I spent half the month in Cuba, which was absolutely amazing and a complete dream come true. I also spent part of April finalizing some plans for in-country travel for later in the year, so stay tuned for those updates! Goal 1: I only read one book […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: April"

‘Tis the Season for New Year’s Resolutions…or in my case improvements upon my never ending bucket list. While I feel I accomplished a lot in 2015 (traveled to Haiti, L.A., and Seattle; met George R. R. Martin; got a little more serious about photography; graduated from grad school), I feel I didn’t really accomplish much […]Read more "‘Tis the Season…and other General Announcements"
