More About Me


I enjoy travel and experiencing new cultures. I am always looking to plan my next adventure. I studied a semester abroad in Italy, which was a life changing experience.

I also enjoy exploring Edmonton, there are so many festivals, plays, concerts, and events going on in our own backyard.

Photography is a passion of mine and many of the photographs on this website are my own.

Yoga, swimming, time with friends and family, board games, walks, and scuba diving keep me busy.
