I am a freelance writer, photographer, and videographer. You might not know it, but you might have seen me or my work on CNN (during the Asian Tsunami), in a Gannett newspaper, and (embarassingly) in Viva, a Dutch magazine for teenage girls 18 and under. (Hey, it pays the rent.)
I am a native of New York City, currently residing in Amsterdam. I travel a lot for work and play – as it is my passion – and use this blog to record my observations, and occasionally – to vent. Some of what I write is very blunt, so feel free to be offended, but please don’t construe it as racist, nativist, sexist, xenophobic, or anti-whatever. Prejudice is based on pre-conceived (and often wrongheaded) ideas, beliefs, or ignorance; my hatreds are based on years of first-hand observation and experience – and no one is safe.
