| MY FIRST NEW YORK |  

Exactly 5 years ago today, I fulfilled my long time dream of moving to New York City. I remember it was in the middle of one of those record breaking snowstorms, and there were massive piles of snow everywhere. I was officially homeless crashing at my little brother’s apartment, had zero work lined up, was fresh off of a breakup, had very little money in my bank account, and I was searching Craigslist for photography jobs feeling defeated and wondering, “What the hell did I just do?!!”   

Back then I had no way of knowing that taking that leap of faith and moving to NYC would lead me to Antarctica, many other meaningful adventures, and love. Looking back I do know that jumping off the cliff and moving to NYC has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.  

This is a photograph of me after we crossed the Antarctic Circle during my first trip to Antarctica last season, and probably one of the most raw and honest photos you will ever see of me. My face is freezing, but I am happy and fulfilled, ready for anything.

This upcoming November and December I’m excited to head back to Argentina and Antarctica.  

 Here’s a street photo I snapped in La Boca, Buenos Aires, Argentina earlier this year.

| HOME SWEET HOME |  

 After 4.5 years of living here and numerous flights back and forth, this is the closest fly by I’ve ever experienced over Manhattan 😍 

 It’s fascinating how such a simple, fleeting moment of beauty can really stop you in your tracks.  

 And I’m so excited to be back home!

| GOING SOMEWHERE | 

 “When you are everywhere, you are nowhere / When you are somewhere, you are everywhere.” - Rumi 

 Flashback to Buenos Aires, Argentina. It’s always an interesting process going back through archived images, because I seem to always find something new and different with a fresh set of eyes. 

 I took this photo on my journey to Antarctica, probably 3-4 weeks before actually stepping foot on the Antarctic continent for my first time. 

 When I look at this image now, it feels like it’s a foreshadowing of what 2015 will and has brought both professionally and personally. I feel like I’m moving towards a new place, especially since I’ve had the opportunity to work on some exciting personal projects this year. Perhaps I will look back at this image several years from now and discover an entirely new meaning.
