I travel as a profession but am not a trophy traveler. My travels take me to places that have not been affected by westernization or modernization. I am drawn to cultures that still practice a traditional way of life, where old customs and artistic expressions are still revered. I am especially interested in body adornment, textiles and their symbology, natural dyeing, and crafts made by hand in the time-honored ways.
