Kurt Vonnegut once said, “Unexpected travel plans are dancing lessons from God.”
Born in Japan, raised in California and living in Oklahoma, I can confidently say I have had quite a few “dancing lessons” and been better off for it.
I have lived in multiple countries, know three languages and love agriculture. I’m a life long learner with a passion for telling authentic stories through photography and writing. Imaginative and outgoing, I’m eager to take on new challenges and experiences.
