im on vacation this week, first portland and now san diego. my vacation has also turned into a kind of “social media break” which has been really nice actually. it’s so beautiful on the west coast...I’ll share some pics eventually..but for now if you need me I’ll just be over here, hiding under a pile of laundry with smoky the kitten.

TRAVEL FOR GOOD - NEPAL - New Dates!
March 18-24, 2019 (not including travel)
_
Given feedback we received after our initial launch, we decided to postpone our trip to Nepal for two reasons: 1) to give people more time to fundraise the funds needed to commit to such a journey and 2) to allow our excursion to coincide with the exciting (and photogenic) spring festival Holi. Keep watch on our feeds for the announcement of a webinar detailing how you can use the Effect.org website to fundraise.

DETAILS
@pketron @hellopoe and I are joining forces with @effect_org to lead an expedition in Kathmandu. Our time will be spent volunteering at local NGOs who work to help women whose lives have been impacted by human trafficking. Each volunteer’s unique talents will be brought to the table and the objective will be to leave the NGOs and the women we work with new skills they can apply towards positive long-term change.

In addition to the NGO work, we’ll have time to experience the incredible country and culture of Nepal through photo lessons and excursions. You do not need to be a professional photographer or an influencer to be a part of this expedition. All are welcome. We’d love to have you join us! Follow the link in my bio for more details.

got to spend an evening catching up with my best friend from college and her family. all my friends’ babies are growing up into the sweetest little people these days...

international cool guy @marco_lawrence and I are in portland for the next few days.

sharing more photos from my eBay journey this year, this time in the awesome category of ‘women or minority owned businesses’. _
big congrats to category winner Gina in Oklahoma, who taught me everything and more about the importance of mattresses with pockets, to Bonnie in CA, kicking ass and selling auto parts (her Siamese cat gave me life when I was felling pretty burnt on the road), and to Shazia in CO, who has an electronics recycling facility and was the finalist I most wished would invite me back to her house and ask me to stay for tea and cookies.

these ladies rock and are why I love what I do.

pizza and cider, what a beautiful combo.

new favorite swimming spot.

we took our bikes over to governors island last night and watched the sunset from the hills.

for sure i want to live in #bodysisekkingelez ‘s world. beautiful exhibit on now at @themuseumofmodernart for all lovers of tiny cities and future dreams.

during the month of june, i spent 3 weeks criss-crossing the country, photographing the 15 finalists in the @ebay shine awards for the 2nd year running. the job is a whirlwind, tough at times to cram in all that travel, but ultimately super rewarding because i get to do what i love: meet people and make pictures.

i'll be featuring a few of my faves over the next few weeks, starting with the finalists in the every day heroes category, sellers who use a portion of their sales to give back to their communities.

elijah in madison hosts workshops, and donated bikes to the community, david in new jersey runs the business with his family and they sponsor a room at the @rmhc, and cori o'steen, the WINNER of this years awards is working to fund a residential recovery program in her own town.

congrats to all the finalists this year, it was awesome getting to work with you.

thanks @ash_mack and @xtravaluemeal for having us back to your little piece of heaven. 💚

pizza and cocktails before heading home.
