I’ve been documenting the world around me since I was a little kid. I mean, did you make a book about yourself at 13 and write down your life story up to that point? Or write an essay about your life to your local newspaper? (I don’t think I sent it… well, I hope I didn’t).
I’ve always felt that maybe I was born in the wrong era, that my love of places, especially old places, indicated that in some way. Now I think I’m just one of those people on earth that wants to document and save the memories and significance of the world around us as it changes and becomes a different world for younger generations.
My education includes a Bachelor’s of Science in Urban & Regional Planning and a Masters in Historic Preservation. I love learning about places, cities, preservation and urban design and am excited to travel the world to absorb as much as I can. I also have a love for craft beer and make a point of visiting breweries whenever I can and wherever I travel.
This site is a small way for me to combine all of those passions. It’s my way to document the world around me, to aid in its preservation.
