I’m a professional travel photographer, writer, public speaker, and educator who spends his life seeking out and capturing some of the most beautiful and inspiring destinations in the world. Location independent since March of 2012, my wife and I live a 100% mobile (global nomadic) lifestyle, perpetually traveling from country to country, continuously circling the globe. Since I began traveling full-time in 2009, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting more than 45 countries while flying well over one million miles. Throughout this perpetual journey, I enjoy teaching the art of photography on my website www.blamethemonkey.com, while sharing my images and stories across various social media outlets. I also collaborate with many different sponsors, brands, and tourism boards, and lead Photography Tours and Post-processing Workshops worldwide. Feel free to drop me a line anytime and if I happen to be in a town near you, I’m always up for a good conversation and coffee. :)
