ABOUT LOST NOT FOUND
At it’s best travel should be about the experience, about expanding your perception of the world, and finding greater empathy and understanding for those who live far and wide. At it’s worst travel is over crowded attractions, resorts, and tourist activities that are destructive to the local environment and people. With Lost Not Found I focus on the former and how we can mitigate becoming the latter. Tourism is an important economic force in the world and learning to travel in a conscious and aware way is part of the responsibility that comes with the privilege of traveling the world. I hope to inspire you to get out of the safe holds of your hometown, or resort and to not be afraid of the ‘unknown’ through stories of travel, narrative essays, high quality imagery, and practical destination guides.
I am an avid traveler (21 countries in 5 years!!), photographer, and lover of the outdoors. I moved back to my home state of California in the Summer of 2016, to help with family matters, after living in NYC for 6 1/2 years working in the fashion industry as a product developer for many high profile brands. With my return home I turned my focus to Food and Travel Lifestyle Photography and re-exploring the wonders of Northern California.
I love to inspire people (especially my fellow Americans, even more so in light of a lot of recent events…) to travel this world of ours, both near and far, in a conscious and thoughtful way. Traveling extensively over these past 5 + years and having many friends from all over the world has shown me the privilege my ever expanding world view and I hope to share what I learn with you.
