Born in the rolling succotash hills of East Tennessee and quickly moved to Maryland and eventually Arizona via my Mom's Chevy Chevelle and sense of adventure.
There I was raised on a steady diet of pet horned toads and sunburn until I decided to join my parents to live in Morocco.
It was the experience of that exotic place with its ancient medinas, odd smells and couscous nights that planted the travel bug in me. It also helped that my Mom works for the State Department.
In my subsequent travels I have worked as a US Embassy security technician, visa clerk, waiter, Persian run cleaner, P.E. Instructor, sandwich tech, doorman, customer service technician, assistant general manager and now attempting web designer/photographer.
