It's too hot to stay inside, and too hot to be out. New Orleans in Summer is a seesaw of emotions; of sweat, cold beer and sweet relief as you escape to somewhere colder, even if it's just a dive bar. Taken with an 85mm portrait lens, a tripod and a lazy shutter, in July of 2023.
I've been a full-time freelance journalist since 2007, covering travel stories for Conde Nast Traveler, Hemispheres, Travel & Leisure and National Geographic.
I'm self-taught, with the exception of a semester at New York's School of Visual Arts and one three-week intensive at the Photography School of Asia in Bangkok.
To-date, my words and images have appeared in more than 50 publications. I've lived in Charleston and Oxford (Mississippi, not London), New Zealand, Montana, and New York City.
For the last 15 years, I've also spent four months per year in Southeast Asia––primarily in Bangkok and Cambodia––working in both photography and fundraising/NGO work.
I'm a member of the Nola Photo Alliance, the Society of American Travel Writers, and am the author of two books on New Orleans. I finally became a full-time resident of the French Quarter in 2019.
