Position: Writer & Photographer
As a freelance writer and photographer for Simply Elevate magazine, I was able to meet a lot of great people. For the articles in this issue, I met with Reggae bands from all over the Caribbean, local oyster farmers and traveled to Idaho to reconnect and explore the last of the frontiers. Though it was a challenge to coordinate travel and interviews before the monthly deadline, I was able to meet a great cross-section of cultures, from viticulturists to gun enthusiasts to peace-loving rastas. Best of all, I was able to enjoy beautifully crafted wines, freshly harvested oysters and other tasty gems that highlighted the people and cultures I learned about.
