through europe with a backpack
Hope you get to enjoy some snow this winter!
It's been so nice to explore up and down the coast this year. Even if it's a quick drive to the Marin Headlands to see Point Bonita Lighthouse or another hike into Mt. Davidson or even a drive up to Mendocino, I love experiencing the coast. I've been making a point to carry my film camera more often and find it to be a lot of fun. Here's a few images from recent excursions.
Last year I started volunteering with a non-profit called Kids for the Kingdom that partners with indigenous teams around the world doing relief work and community development.
Recently, I flew down to visit one of the teams in El Salvador and it was awesome. Not only was it a fun adventure, but it was also an opportunity to meet people like Carlos, the National Director for the country, and really experience his passion for God and people. I saw firsthand the programs that he is running which include: meals for the hungry, teaching for kids, a single mother's ministry, and more. I also got a better understanding of the issues that many Salvadorians face like extreme poverty and gang violence.
Overall, I felt honored to be invited to El Salvador and I'm so glad I brought my camera—just look at all the great colors and textures!
Lastly, I came to the realization that pupusas and Coca Cola were made for each other :)
Hey there! Just wanted to give you a quick heads up that I've been out of town a bunch lately... but don't worry; I've been shooting like crazy. I'm really excited about the types of images I'm getting. Here's a taste of what's to come. Think multiple backpacking trips, film, and a few weddings, too!
I had the privilege of climbing with some friends at this rad gym in SF called Mission Cliffs . To be honest, it was slightly terrifying...don't worry though, I also had fun. I plan on heading it back soon.
