 What is your occupation?  I am a full-time wedding and lifestyle photographer.  Tell your friends!  How long have you been riding?  I’ve been riding for 4 months now (newb!) although I have to say it feels like longer.  Riding just feels like something I was always meant to do.  Why or what/who inspired you?  Prior to this year I was a professional passenger on my man Jeff’s bike for 3 years.  I loved being on the open road with him […]

I don’t have an occupation in the traditional sense of the word. I volunteer my time fighting for something I believe in; combating the illegal wildlife trade. I live in Laos for 8 months out of the year implementing anti-wildlife trafficking campaigns and educational projects. During the other 4 months, such as right now, the monsoon season is raging on in SE Asia and traveling between villages becomes very difficult and school is often out of session. It is therefore […]
