I started documenting life around me as early as I can remember - keeping journals, typing up newsletters to send to family & friends, using my parents' point & shoot camera, and finally graduating to my own proper camera in high school.
Raised in Greece as a missionary kid, I was surrounded by people from all walks of life and dozens of countries. In the beautiful conglomeration of refugees, asylum seekers, nationals, migrants, and expats, I found extraordinary beauty. Each person had a story to tell. Each person had unique value. Each person was on a journey, some more chaotic than others. This diverse experience stirred up the desire within me to capture people's stories from around the world and share them with others.
I grew up absolutely loving the Mediterranean sun and sea. So after college, I decided to move to landlocked Tennessee. All in the name of love. :) I have come to cherish these hills and rivers which now surround me (although truthfully, my heart yearns to live near a real beach again someday).
I'm married to a super creative guy named Jonah, who also grew up in Europe. He's my best friend, confidant, partner-in-crime, and biggest supporter! (You should definitely ask us how we got together sometime.) We are in the thick of parenthood right now with two little boys in tow (toddler and newborn), who I have the privilege to be with full-time in this season. We currently live in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
