More Than a Weekend details my adventures through photography and vignettes.

Born the oldest of five siblings in the beautiful Bay Area of California, I went to college in Washington state and fell in love with Seattle. I now live in New York City. I have left the country every year since 2002, and I have no desire to stop my traveling.

Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, but I am seeking other life experiences including, but not limited to, music, film, art, video games, theatre, politics, history, and increasing amounts of writing.


the weekend

According to Christian mythology, Jesus was killed on a Friday and then rose again on Sunday.

The band Brand New has a song about those three days he was dead.

So what did you do those three days you were dead?

‘Cause this problem’s gonna last more than the weekend.

“Jesus Christ” by Brand New

More Than A Weekend asks us to recognize that nothing can be solved “in a weekend.”

Take the time to appreciate the beauty in our world and, while we’re waiting for this “weekend” to pass, find ways to solve problems ourselves.
